Restaurant Review

The Shrimp Box is a popular Point Pleasant restaurant where you can experience excellent waterfront views, fresh locally caught seafood, and "not break the bank."

In the warmer months, they open the Outside The Box Patio Bar --- a great place to be for that Jersey Shore experience. Their outdoor dining on the deck offers great river front views and 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 seafood is fresh and caught locally, the preparation is typical of most Jersey Shore seafood restaurants, with a menu of many simply prepared and fried batter seafood dishes.

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.

The Shrimp Box is open seven days/week for Lunch & Dinner.

The Shrimp Box is child friendly with an excellent kids menu.
