Used to be an old Long John Silvers and they converted it into a seafood store/ restaurant. Fresh seafood dinners at reasonable prices. My favorite is an enormous Shrimp Po Boy Sandwich. I have also had the scallop dinner a few times and it was also fresh and fried!

Went her for my daughter and she loved it. We got a meal to go and it was done fresh for us. The prices were fair which I was surprised. I really thought they would be higher considering what it was. This is a fresh seafood market that also cooks food. You get a lot in your order in fact... More

We read some pretty negative reviews about this place, so we almost didn't go. We both had shrimp po-boys, and they were excellent! Plenty of shrimp, lightly breaded and fried to perfection. The bread was not hard like we have had at some places. We both had slaw and French fries. The slaw was very tasty, and the fries were... More

First... the prices are too high.... No... way too high... for what you actually get.... But, this is NOT my complaint. Read about that below.... If you go (and you shouldn't), you need to go knowing what you are looking for, what it looks, and smells, like -- because you won't find any honest answers from anyone that works there.... More

We actually ate at the Alcoa location, but this was a gem of a find. It was located in an old Long John Silver's building, which gave me a little trepidation, but this food is the real deal and reminded me of one of our favorite places in Florida to eat. The seating inside it fairly limited, but ona nice... More

Shrimp Dock is simply the best market you'll find in Tennessee this side of the Atlantic. The most wonderful and freshest morsels of the sea exist here. I went in for simply a dozen oysters and after being treated to the taste of one had my hands full with crab, assorted ocean fish and more. The guys there are the... More

This is actually a raw fish market, but I did not know where else to put the review. This place is marvelous. Very clean and the fish is so fresh it is almost still swimming. Shrimp Dock has crab, lobster, shrimp, crawfish -- you name the seafood and it's there. Highly recommend.
