"We go here every year during vacation. All our entrees were very good. Our apps weren't that terrific though. The waiter, Alex, was awesome and very attentive. The dining area and view are marvelous.
Note to Chart House; crab cakes could stand some improvement on quality of meat!

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.

"The Shrimp Box is a fun place to have dinner. Overall, the food is good and there is a nice variety of food to choose from. However, our waitress wasn't very nice at all. We didn't ask for anything extra or above and beyond 4 basic meals and some bar drinks. She did the minimum required of her and wasn't friendly. We tried to overlook it as we were having a nice meal but when all is said and done; it does improve the experience if you have a courteous and friendly waitress."
