Restaurant Review

Mr. Shrimp is a casual, family style seafood restaurant popular with locals who come to enjoy a BYOB serving fresh seafood at a reasonable price.

Owned and operated by Vincent Petruzziello, they relocated next door in 2018 to a larger venue with a dining area that seats more then 100 and a raw bar with seating for 12.The dining area is simply decorated with hand painted seafood murals, brightly lit, an open ceiling, and hard wood flooring.

The menu is seafood centric with a variety of raw bar, soups, sandwiches, starters and entrees. For carnivores, there is a limited selection of chicken and steak entrees.There is also a seafood market with a large of fresh seafood for takeout.

The value is good and served with ample portions: They are a notch above in quality and food preparation to many other Jersey Shore traditional menu seafood restaurants in this class/category .

Service is friendly. though spotty.

Mr. Shrimp is open seven/days week for lunch and dinner from 10am - 9pm.

On-site parking available
