They have a wonderful selection of shrimp, which they season and steam for you. They also had the shells that I have been looking for, in their small gift shop. Very friendly lady working/ owning here.

We buy fresh fish or shrimp here at least twice a week when we are in Mexico Beach -- which is often. Superior fresh seafood, friendly, helpful people, and reasonable prices.
