Restaurant/Bar in an old seafood freezer on the water where boats bring in their fresh catch. Amazing shrimp, fish dip and stone crabs. A lot of local controversy around restaraunt so it is becoming very popular.

Yummmoo!

Stopped in after a canoeing trip for a beer and a meal. The snow crab dinner was divine! Loved the relaxed atmosphere and the staff was very friendly. I will definetly be making this a regular stop when visiting FL!

We went for lunch on Sunday, we were early as they don't serve food until noon. It turned out to be worth the wait, the shrimp we ordered were perfectly prepared and served piping hot! We opted for a pitcher of beer and water for drinks, the beer was ice cold and very much appreciated as we were eating outdoors.... More

Food was great! Cash only. Local dive. Not your typical restaurant experience. Very, very casual dress. Great place to stop after a day on the river. Very laid back.

We visited this restaurant at 2 pm this last Friday. As everyone says it is the best shrimp we ever had and the snow crab legs came out of the shell so easy. We are not beer drinkers. The only thing I would change is the pop should be chilled not room temperature. We got one order of shrimp and... More

We went with our friends. We ordered a 1/2 order of shrimp with clam chowder & chips. Very generous portions of shrimp. The shrimp was good but I really enjoyed the chowder. Our friends ordered us beer in a bucket. My one friend does not eat seafood & ordered a ham & cheese wrap. She was satisfied.

When I arrived, I wasn't sure I was in the right place. Very plane, warehouse like exterior. The inside was as unattractive as the outside. If you're looking for ambiance, atmosphere, romantic hideaway, forget this place. However, if you are looking at outstanding seafood at very reasonable prices, this is the place to go! I had their shrimp platter and... More

Don't judge the food by how the place looks. Shrimp are amazing. Be prepared to scout out your own table, order at the bar, and eat until you are stuffed! It's loud, the seats are uncomfortable, and it's always crowded. And, we can't wait to go again! Don't let the limited menu discourage you. It's a shrimp shack, and they... More

The first time you go you would not believe this is a place that serves the best shrimp ever. Even the pretzel was great. View only added to the meal.

Went here on a Wednesday night because they also do steaks on the grill just on Wednesdays. Good selection of decent beers at very reasonable prices. I got the steamed shrimp, which was very good. I shared a half-pound order with one person and it was plenty. Their pretzels were pretty good as well. My cousin ordered the steak, which... More

Be prepared for raunchy smells, slow service, crowds, cash only, limited wine choices served in plastic cups and the best boiled shrimp you've ever had! Seasoned with Old Bay's, not too spicy most of the time, be prepared to use lots of napkins! There's hand wipes, but you'll have to search for them at the bar. People either love it... More
