    Word on the street was Red's was for sale. Don't know if that is still the case. I've always liked it there very casual come as you are eat with your fingers type place.

      A couple minutes away from Kleins is Mr. Shrimp - not on the water, but our shore fav for great seafood.


      We had oysters, steamers and dinner at Mr. Shrimp a couple weeks ago and enjoyed it as much as before ...

        I used to love Kleins, but my last two visits have suggested they have gone far downhill. I haven't been to Reds or the Shrimp Box in ages so I can't vouch for either, but, years ago, I used to go to and enjoy Reds if I was in the neighborhood.

          I much prefer the deck at Red's to the other two on your list. The other spots have liquor licenses though. I'd rank the Shrimp Box last.
