The Shrimp Box is a popular Point Pleasant restaurant where you can experience excellent water front views, fresh locally caught seafood, and "not break the bank"
In the warmer months , they have outdoor dining on the deck with great river front views. The Outdoor Patio has more of a party atmosphere with a bar. This is one of the best places in Point Pleasant to enjoy a sunset. Get there before dusk, have some drinks and dinner on the patio deck, watch the boats go by and the sun go down.
While the sea food is fresh and caught locally, the preparation is fair, not very creative, and favors a number of fried batter seafood dishes that obscure the true flavor of the seafood. It's an ordinary Jersey shore dining experience with a dated interior
Come by boat and dine. They have 300 feet of dock space available for customers arriving by boat for dinner or lunch.
Expect long waiting lines during the summer. Get there early for smaller lines, and easier parking.
During the season The Shrimp Box is open seven days/week for Lunch & Dinner, except during the winter when they are closed from mid-December until March.
They offer a value priced Sunset Dinner Menu: Sunday thru Friday 12:00 to 6:00pm, and on Saturday 12:00 to 5:00pm that includes an Entree with a Salad Bar or Clam Chowder Soup, Potato, Vegetable, Dessert & Beverage.
The Shrimp Box is child friendly with an excellent "Young Sailors" menu.
