    I would suggest most steakhouses have great shrimp cocktails.

      The shrimp cocktail at Oceana is first-rate.

      Photos of the shrimp cocktail at Oceana can be seen in this set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/11863391@N03/sets/72157624127309526/

      I agree with princeofpork3 that steakhouses serve exellent shrimp cocktails.

        I know people will scoff at this suggestion but the shellfish cocktails at Bobby Flay's Bar Americain are outstanding. Shrimp-tomatillo, crab-coconut or lobster-avocado. Or you can do a tasting of all three. I know you asked just about shrimp, but I had to throw the other two in there because they are just so good. I have to admit I don't know if the shrimp are "fresh wild caught" as you stipulated (you can always call and ask), but they are definitely large.

          Old Homestead has the single largest and best shrimp cocktail in the city. Shrimps are $7 each. ;They are like little Lobster Tails.
