The fried shrimp at Shrimp Shack is the BEST!!! Their Boom Boom shrimp gets rave reviews from those in our party that like a little kick to their shrimp!

A good place for fried seafood, be careful re eating times as it is a favorite of the snow birds. Fast friendly service, locally owned.

Food is average. I ended up getting sick after eating oysters. No one else ate them and no one else got sick. Rest of food is ok. Nothing super exciting.

Wow! There is a very wide variety of food, for everyone's taste buds. There were 9 of us in my group: we had several appetizers (shrimp, crab cakes, corn nuggets, fried mushrooms and calamari) and they were all hot and delicious. The shrimp and grits, buttery parmasean chicken, and fish tacos were all a hit at our table. Their daily... More

Great food, good service and fair pricing. Maybe isn't the biggest or fanciest place to eat, but I always have a good experience there. Come early!

We like fish and chips. Friends told us that the Shrimp Shack is the place to go. We were not disappointed. The portions were generous with a good selection of sides to choose from. The batter is light which does not hide the fish. We also tried the New England clam chowder which was also good. Drink prices are reasonable.... More

A very busy restaurant specializing in shrimp an some seafood. It's noisy, quick service, decent food at a good price. I enjoyed the shrimp and grits. My wife liked the Thursday special Haddock.

shackowner, Owner at Shrimp Shack, responded to this review

Our menu is NOT all fried. Everything is available broiled or fried. Please see menu for choices. Don't know why oysters were not good, we get them in fresh daily from the gulf. They are lightly battered and bread to order. We only cook them for a short time, to give full flavor of oyster, if you Iike then can... More
