I can’t recall the last time I was at the Shrimp Box, but it’s easily 10-15+ years ago. Red’s I’ve been to more recently, the one thing I don’t understand is the “great vew”. Am I wrong or isn’t the view simply all the commercial fishing facilities and ships that dock in that area? I understand it’s on the water, cut it’s like a cul-de-sac of all commercial fishing, isn’t it?
For a better view at least the Lobster Shanty / Warfside has a view of Squan (some beachy / grassy area before the inlet) and the inlet itself. You get the occasional commercial fishing boat passing to/from the inlet but that’s about it, the rest are all recreational boats. When I was younger I kept a boat at Johnson Brothers in Pt, then later at my parents home in Toms River. I’ve been in and out of that inlet many times and docked and dined at each of them over the years. Does shrimp box do dock and dine?
