We found this place 3 years ago and have eaten there at least 15 times and never a bad meal. The food has always arrived hot and tasty. We have never had a bad server everyone has done a wonderful job. I would recommend the Shrimp Boat to my pickiest friends.

My son and I love the Shrimp Boat. The steaks are outstnding and the stuffed grouper (or is it flounder; doesn't matter, it's great!). Service is quick and servers are wonderful. You won't go wrong taking company to the Shrimp Boat. Easy

I don't think it could've been any more half a$$ed. I read a lot of positive (PROBABLY FAKE) reviews online before going. Don't be fooled, at best it's adequate. Laziest food I've had in years. Shameful! Server acted like she had a family member who was recently diagnosed with cancer or just didn't want to be there = First clue for me to get the heck out! Food was comparable to service. Not horrible, but not worth the $. Not even half. Why open a restaurant that produces food that's as good as Long John Silver's????? What is the purpose in that????? Why is this place still in business??? Oh yeah, FAKE POSITIVE REVIEWS online. NOT GOOD STAY AWAY PLEASE! If you like this place you must be semi- to full on retarded. Not that there's anything wrong with that but if you are reading this and comprehending then you know something IS wrong with that. If I made that food I would be disgraced/shamed/on the verge of suicide. Heed my warning please. In short, Long John Silvers Shrimp Boat Grill. Quality is the same, but at least Long John Silver's is cheaper!

PS - This review is serious. It may sound like I'm trying to be funny. No. It's the Shrimp Boat Grill that is a joke. Plus, my mom got the Coconut Shrimp which is Regular Fried Shrimp with Coconut shavings on top. Lazy! Please don't eat here, just go to McDonald's or starve to death.

Shrimp Boat is Brandon's Best Kept Secret's .....The food is fresh and well prepared. Not only is their fish and chips fab, seafood chowder to die for. AND the mushroom CHEESE burger is absolutely THE BEST!!! Oh, the onion rings!

Half of the food was edible, the other half was completely terrible! We had this waitress, Sharon, she had to be one of the worst servers I have ever had and she is an owner of the restaurant! Absolutely terrible experience with incompetent waitstaff and overpriced nasty food. I wouldn't go there again if you paid me.

I recently went in there with a friend of mine. Our bar drinks took 15 minutes to get out to us, and the waitress gave us attitude like it was our faults. Food was VERY slow to get out, and when it finally did, it was cold and tasteless. This place is a slum!

Friends of ours took us to the Shrimp Boat and we loved everything we had to eat. We went again with them and again we all four totally enjoyed our food. So tonight we took some other friends, and we all had another great dinner at the Shrimp Boat, and to top things off, we had a very nice waitress, named Elise, who when finding out that last week, my husband and the wife of the other couple had just celebrated their birthdays, brought two key lime pies to our table. We now have more wonderful things to say about the Shrimp Boat Grille, and the staff. Thank you for everything, and we will be back and bring more people.

We have been going to The Shrimp Boat Grille for almost a year and have always received Hot, Fresh food, and excellent service.

We went tonight with the in-laws (they are from out of town) and they loved it! We ordered their delicious and juicy burgers with the potato pancake. Everything was cooked to order, FRESH, and delicious. And to all you carnivores out there, you know it's a good burger when the juice just drips down your chin as soon as you bite into it. It's pure heaven.

I've also enjoyed their shrimp and Tilapia. Their riptide shrimp is one of my favorites. It's lightly breaded, and it's accompanied with a delicious tangy yet slightly spicy sauce. It's oh so delicious and worth the calories! The Tilapia is also lightly breaded (panko?) and is nicely flavored. Plus, you get two big filets in your order with an excellent tartar sauce.

The service. Each time that we have come in, the service has been great. Their staff are attentive, helpful, and courteous. Never pushy. Love that!!

After tonight's dinner I seriously wanted to go to the back and meet the Chef. He/She is doing an excellent job at providing FRESH, delicious food for all of Brandon/Valrico Area.

If you are in the mood for FRESH, Cooked to order food, come to Shrimp Boat! You won't be disappointed!

Easily one of the worst establishments in Tampa. Terrible service, so the other comments are very suspect. We went on a Sunday and the place was empty. The staff seemed really bitter at the thought of serving a customer, and when we ordered our meal, they did not have half of the items ordered. When we complained, they were dismissive and simply rude. With service like this, they will be out of business in 6 months.

All I can say is FANTASTIC. You're missing out if you haven't given it a try! Everything I've had there was the best! From the crab cakes to the coconut shrimp to the chicken parmesan. You can't beat it. The owners are WONDERFUL!

Went there last night - it was great.

The onion rings we had as an appetizer were fantastic - they were cooked just right. Nothing worse than onion rings where the onion is mushy...didn't happen at the Shrimp Boat Grille. Also, the chipotle dipping sauce was wonderful - a little bit of spice and a little bit of sweet...a perfect companion to the onion rings.

I had the fried shrimp - I'm a 'basics' kind of eater. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the shrimp were nice and big...and had no tails! W00t!

My dining partner had the stuffed flounder with a loaded baked potato --- when they said 'loaded', they mean it! The flounder was excellent, so I was told.

Portions were large but not obscenely so. The price for what you're served is very, very reasonable - you do not feel short changed at all.

Cons: none that i can think of

I have eaten @ the shrimp boat at least 4 times in one year. Service is excellence. Food portions are to die for. Wine is great. They are working toward a full liquor bar. I recommend this for the whole family, or for a romantic dinner.

I have travelled all over the world, and think that their crab legs were the largest and tastiest I have ever had. My wife feels the same!!!! They were better than Sam Choys in Honolulu.

PROS: Great Service, Great food, Fair prices.
CONS: Not too many side dishes to choose from, but still outstanding.

The only con to this place is that the food is a little slow to come out. It's worth the wait, though. Everything was obviously made fresh. Friendly staff, good food.

PROS: Tasty food, nice wait staff, very cozy atmosphere.
CONS: Slow service b/c food is prepared fresh.

Husband had steak and shrimp: steak tasted like bad meat and shrimp were chewy. Sister had salmon and shrimp: she said she had better shrimp at Captain D's Seafood (fast food place). I had Shrimp Cakes: they were mostly cheese with chewy overcooked shimp inside. Au Gratin Potatos were potato chunks in some kind of cream sauce... it was nothing near au gratin. Waitress was slow with drinks as well as salads. OUTRAGEOUSLY overpriced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would not go back. Do not recommend. Regret the decision.

PROS: None.
CONS: PRICE. Atmosphere. Wait staff. Food.... what else could there be?

A new, regular spot for great fish and seafood. Since discovering this jewel a year ago I have been back at least a dozen times and have had nothing but excellent results. The interior sets a dockside dining mood reminescent of eastern shore Maryland with
reasonable pricing, excellent wines by the glass and nightly dinner specials.

My wife and I went to the Shrimp Boat to try something different. The place is small and the staff was pretty good overall. Both the Grouper and the Stuffed Flounder were out of this world and the prices were about what one would expect to pay. The lounge singer that was playing for background music was a nice touch, but he didn't look like he wanted to be there and there was no interaction with the customers. A few tables were available for outside dining as well. Overall, I would have to recommend this place.
