Shimizu Station first opened as Ejiri Station (江尻駅, Ejiri-eki) on February 1, 1889, when the section of the Tōkaidō Main Line connecting Shizuoka with Kōzu was completed. It was named after Ejiri-juku, the 18th station of the historical Tōkaidō. In 1934 it was renamed Shimizu Station.
From 1916 the Shimizukō Line ran as a branch line from Shimizu Station through the industrial port area of the town before terminating in Miho. In 1984 this line was replaced by a bus service. Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued in 1984, and all freight services by 2001. Transfer to the Shizuoka-Shimizu Railway is available via Shin-Shimizu Station, a ten-minute walk from the east exit. The current station building was completed in June 2003.
In fiscal 2017, the station was used by an average of 10,652 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).
