Just as Amazing, and Even Better Than The 1st Time....... – I just want to say, Thank You for bringing back Killer Shrimp with first class service, delicious new extensive menu and a beautiful environment. I have been telling everyone who was a Fan of The Old Killer Shrimp, they have maintained the consistency of their three delicious staples of their Menu and added so much more. We order all three versions Shrimp Only, Shrimp w/rice, Shrimp w/pasta. We had a party of seven for my birthday and no one was disappointed. Try the new Lobster Macoroni & Cheese, Filet Migon, Lobster Tails and the Sweet Potato Praline Pie & Prailine Cheescake is to die for. My husband is a chef and a Fan, and had no complaints. My children have been begging to go back, they loved it. We love it Spicy & Hot and Full of Flavor. We attended on Tueday, Oct. 18th. Thank You for Coming Back With Passion, Purpose & Consistency.....
The Food was Trash! Well, that's where it belongs – I went here last week with a friend that I really wanted to impress, thinking a would get lucky after. We were told that it would be a 45 min wait so we headed to the bar.
Me being a male, I had an agenda! My female friend ordered a drink, I asked the bartender to make it a double then I let him in on my plan...j/k. Well Kinda. He then gave be a double shot of Patron to help me with my plan that I was eagerly waiting for for some months now.
It was time. Tonight, that night should have been the night!
After about 30 mins I got a text saying my table was ready. We went, sat down, and my date, well lady friend started telling how good this place was. Well just so you know, I'm a chef! Yes, I real life chef. For real, I can cook for you if you like.
I ordered the killer shrimp thingy over white rice. She ordered the same, but over pasta. Almost everyone around us was asking for salt, you will find out more as I go on.
While the waitress who was very cute, and nice got our food, I read the stats about this so called special sauce simmering for about 10 hours and what not...wait did I mention the waitress was cute...I really want to get that point accross.
She brought the food and it smelled amazing, yummy yummy in my tummy, well in my nostrils. But there was something wrong. The sauce was runny like water, yukky, but I said "self eat up, never mind the food you have a beautiful girl with you, and she is going home with you, you lucky guy".
The food was nasty. Horrible. They should not even call it food. It was spicy which I loved but it lacked flavor, hence the reason everyone around us was asking for salt. (you like how I brought that point back accross?) I forgot to mention that I ordered the lobster tail which was over cooked. Oh, and the rice was lacking flavor and texture, I mean how do you mess rice up? Someone please tell me that?
Me being the man I am I had to let them know, so everything that I am sharing with you I told the cute waitress, (Don't worry I still paid my bill) who tried to get me a new lobster, but it was still not done correctly.
I offered to go back there and show the Chef how to cook it, but they declined my offer...too bad.
We left and I thought we were heading back to my place, but my date wanted to go home :-(. I blame the food. If the food was good, my date may have stayed the night! Thanks a lot killer shrimp for killing my plans! I should have wasted my drinks on the cute waitress chick! I'm sure she would have went home wth me, well at least that's what I will be telling people since I will never know if she would have or not!
Killer Shrimps needs to be wiped off the face of the earth, Or tossed in the trash where it belongs!
needs much better customer service – Waited about an hour for a table with my brother his wife and 3 children despite being told several times 'just a few minutes more'. Then it took another 30 minutes for the waitress to take the order despite all of us pretty much knowing what we wanted since we had already had an hour to study the menu. Waited another 30+ minutes for the food. My brother and his wife got fed up and left with their 2 children to have room service in the hotel. My son and I finally got our food, which was good, but not worth all the exestential pain we had to go through to get it. The manager kept coming by with the excuse that it was their 'soft opening' and " I am in the restaurant business and would never go to a restaurant the first month it's open". So I guess it was my fault for not knowing that. Wasn't sure why I had to pay full price for what was apparently a dress rehearsal. We had to beg for some bread while we waited for food, we were all starving. There was no apology and apart from the manager periodically coming by to give us some excuse, the wait staff almost ignored us completely.
Perfect place for family dining! – I came here last week with my family (because my brother was coming into town with his wife) and we had an amazing dining experience. The views were impeccable and the food was amazing. My Filet was cooked to perfection! yum
We are beyond happy you had such a great experience here! We only have one question for you...when the heck are ya coming back? :) Looking forward to seeing you soon. -Kevin (owner)
New Look Same OLD Service – Had lunch today at the new location. New look, new location , new people. same crappie service. We were a party of 3 it took over 45minutes to get 3 originals. This dish is not made to order, they should not take more than 15 minute other guest who arrived later that us were served before us . I think the waitress forgot to place the orders. Did not receive a refill on my drink, the refills come from the bar, we were seated in the bar area. then a different server told us we were to get a discount for the inconvenience. We got charge regular price. Waited for the manager he was busy at the table behind us receiving a same complaint. Maybe with the new look a new staff?
Will never eat here again – Food was great!!, after 2 hours waiting for a table and another hour waiting for my entree, anything woulda tasted good by then. Good trick to starve the customer before you serve the food. Quality of food was great, thats all i can say for Killer Shrimp. They have slutty looking girls walking around with bright red lipstick and hooters shirts. all they are missing is the short shorts. Our waitress was very slow and rude. We also heard a waitress explode on other customers using profanity. I thought killer shrimp was going to take a step up, but they went way down in my books. NOT A PLACE TO BRING THE FAMILY!!! Besides the slutty employees, they have drunk people causing a disturbance, intoxicated women stumbling out of the bar flashing their chests...... they need to either take out the bar, or put in stripper poles. They need to decide if they are going to be a restaurant or a hooters/nightclub. The employees have tattoos and piercings showing, you can even see nipple piercings through the shirts..... AS A RECOMMENDATION........IF YOU LIKE KILLER SHRIMP LIKE I DO, ORDER TAKE OUT.
Skip it – If you are a local, skip the new incarnation of Killer Shrimp on Admiralty. They are totally into catering to young stupid guys, not realizing they'll be gone after Labor Day weekend, leaving the people who actually live here -- the people they alienated this weekend -- as their only customers. I hope they fail yesterday. They refused to serve us because we weren't young or cool enough. Guess what!? We're the people with money! Not to mention the people who live next door and eat out every night.
IT'S ABOUT TIME – THANKS TO WHOM EVER IS BRINGING BACK KILLER SHRIMP TO THE WEST SIDE. ONE OF THE BEST DISHES AROUND
KILLER SHRIMP IS COMING BACK!!! – Yes! Killer Shirmp is coming back this Summer 2011 as Killer Shrimp Restaurant Bar. Admiralty & Palawan, in MDR.
The Real Deal – Back when I lived in Marina Del Rey this was the spot for some great shrimp, west of the Gulf Coast. I do miss it. And one of these days when I'm not broke, I will road trip for this. If you are ever in the neighborhood, you have to stop in.
