We were seeing friends in Oak Harbor and asked them where we should stop of lunch..... They said The Shrimp Shack right up the road - Ask for Mary, say Hello, and enjoy a fun lunch. We had a good burger basket and fish tacos. Will stop by again if we ever pass this way again. Can't beat a local... More

Great seafood, the fish tacos are awesome. There is a tent with picnic tables you can have a bee (or two) while waiting for your order. Seriously, a good spot to dip into if you have a seafood craving (and you might after looking at all that water).

Wasn't sure to stop, didn't want everything deep fried. Glad we stopped and were pleasantly surprised and the selection on the menu. The chowder was delicious. Ordered the crab sandwiches and they were a perfect choice. Lots of crab and lots of flavor. The women helping us was very friendly and enjoyable to talk with.

We have been to the Shrimp Shack a few times and it is usually very good. The Chowder is consistently delicious! The fried items, though normally very good, were mediocre on our most recent visit. It seemed like the oil in the fryer was past its prime and perhaps the temperature was off as well. We have had enough great... More

Pros - Fun seating in the outdoors - Interesting menu - shrimp, oyster shooters n crocs! Cons - Slow service (although one of the servers was doing her best taking orders and delivering food to the tables with one arm in a cast)

This is a nice place to stop by and relax for a meal or a beer or both if you're visiting Deception Pass State Park or Whidby Island. They have an extensive menu of seafood, burgers and sandwiches as well as Chowder and a good selection of Northwest craft beers. When weather permits, there's an outdoor beer garden.

The shrimp shack is a great place to get a hamburger or some ice cream. Unfortunately their namesake shrimp isn't always available but on a sunny afternoon it's a nice place to be

Okay, so. Long story short my friend and I got the bright idea to eat seafood, was about to go to high end place. But he suggested we go find shrimp by the pound. We ended up coming to the shrimp shack because we were intrigued. Had good reviews and promised shrimp. Sadly no shrimp by the pound this time... More

We'd been passing by the Shrimp Shack on our weekend jaunts to Oak Harbor, and finally decided to stop on a Sunday afternoon. We picked an inside table and the sole waitress was with us quickly to take our order. Thumbs up for the ice cold beer. We ordered a fish sandwich, a salmon sandwich, and the colossal shrimp basket.... More
