This is the go to place for fresh fish and shrimp in MB. You'll buy what was caught the night before. Not frozen. Good prices too. There's also a souvenir shop there as well, should you be tnclined to purchase touristy stuff.

The kids spent a lot of time here looking at all of the unique items. The prices seemed to be what I expected. It is definitely a place worth checking out.

We visited the Shell Shack 5 times during our stay on Mexico Beach, and prepared the most amazing food using fresh seafood. The service is fantastic and personal. Thank you, Shell Shack, for the great care you take in your offerings!

My husband and I love to get the peel and eat shrimp to go. We prefer ours steamed in Bay seasoning. Shell Shack also has many other fresh seafood choices. Gotta visit this place!
