Stick a fork in the place, it's done. Dirty carpet. No toilet paper in the woman's bathroom. Movie posters as decoration mixed with plastic fish. Expect diner quality food in a grimy setting Never going back.

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but the fish is very fresh. We were in the area and looking for a lunch more interesting than fast food. The fish and other seafood is in refrigerator cases right in the dining area (so is the kitchen). I had the shrimp with crab meat stuffing, basically four little crab... More

We grew up on the East Coast but moved to Phoenix, Arizona. The only fish available in Arizona is frozen like a rock. So on visits to see our family on the East Coast we always make an effort to find fresh fish. The Shrimp King which is a family run restaurant and fish market was 2 minutes from our... More

My family and I love dining at Shrimp King. The food can't get anymore fresh and it is incredibly tasty. Also, everybody there is very friendly.

It was around 1 pm on Sunday. Quiet, so very quick service. French fries came quite a bit later then the other food, but not a big deal. Had a lentil soup, fried cod. This all for 11 USD only. Not a fancy place. Maybe the carpet needs a renewal.

I have only purchased take-out food from Shrimp King. Their main attribute is absolutely FRESH, delicious seafood. The clams, King-crab and shrimp have always been excellent, never a problem. The service is prompt and offers good suggestions for cooking the fish. I would highly recommend this store for those who want absolute fresh, good quality seafood.

I visit Shrimp King roughly every ten days to pick up fish for a few days. I usually order 6 ten ounce portions of broiled salmon, 5 ten ounce portions of broiled cod and pound or so of shrimp. Although I live a healthy lifestyle beware of the fried flounder sandwich, it's addicting. The owners are great and so is... More

Four of us enjoyed dinner here, a quick detour from the highway, as we were traveling. We were so glad we hadn't settled for a chain restaurant. For diner prices, we each had a superb fish dinner in a cheerful "taverna"-style environment. I had tuna, medium rare, that was really exquisitely fresh and tender. My friends chose a variety of...
