In 1940 Franklin E. Barmore Sr. purchased the land where the current Shrimp Box now sits to become a commercial fishing dock. The Barmore Family consisting of Frank Sr., Edith, and Frank Jr., ran the dock and the adjoining retail fish market, selling and transporting fish along the Atlantic Coast.<br /><br />In 1953, with Frank Jr. and Mom Barmore (now a widow) decided to open a small take-out seafood stand to keep her occupied. After several years, the stand was so successful it moved to the retail fish store (the current lobby and part of the kitchen) and expanded it's seating to 36 from the four original counter stools.<br /><br />Frank Barmore died in 1982, leaving the restaurant to his wife and daughters.<br />In the end of the 1999 season, the Shrimp Box ownership was transferred to Nick Gyftakis and George Pappas. Nick and George have been in business together since the 1970's. With their combined restaurant history, your dining experience is sure to be memorable.

"Thought early dinner on a nice day would be good. Dinner was good. I don't understand why others rate so high. Salad bar is a waste of time. And frankly a little over priced but I understand they make all the money in the summer. Might go back but I am not running there."

"Stopped by La Mezzaluna for a dinner. Really enjoyed the salad and risotto. Pork ossi bocco was great."
