Had a pretty uneventful meal here. The food (scallops for me, crab cakes for my friend) is average at best but I didn't mind because the view is so wonderful. It was a warm late afternoon so we sat outside and it felt like we were on a cruise. I will return if in the area for that seaside feeling.

Got there at 4 pm for sunset dinner and the place was full. No wait though and we started with salad bar.
Fresh ingredients and well presented.
I had fried shrimp and my wife had the broiled. After all it is the shrimp box.
Cooked to perfection with a medley of super vegetables and a great baked potato. Great service, good coffee and the only disappointing part was after all the years, no rum raisin ice cream

We enjoy eating outside during the summer and the inlet is one of our favorites. We have enjoyed the Shrimp Box indoors for years so we recently tried the Outside the Box Patio Bar. Food is excellent, however the menu variety is more limited. Also missing is the salad bar, but a salad is still provided with every dinner.

Being a local is a help because we can wait until the summer season is not as busy
but the weather is still nice. Crowd was still there, but seating was immediate. Service was excellent as usual.

We ate here last night at The Outside the Box. We wanted a water view and this delivered! We were told approximately 40 minutes for a table and that's all it took. We sipped cocktails while seated by the inlet and then our table was ready. Delicious scallops and red snapper and competent servers. There is valet parking although we were directed to self park at the lit across the street. A very pleasant evening!

We only stopped here to have drinks and desert which was very good and reasonably priced. Looked at the dinner menu and saw others being served.... Looks very good and also reasonably priced. We will make sure to eat there on our next visit!
