It doesn't look very good from the outside but it is worth a stop for sure. We got the fried clams and of course the giant fried shrimp. I haven't found anywhere that can do shrimp like this!

The shrimp are battered really well. There is a charge for sauces and crackers but if you have not visited, go ahead and give them a try!

I have always loved shrimp express until this last visit. The guy loading the tarter sauce did not have on gloves and I saw him lick the left over off his hand. This is horrible. The shrimp were fried to hard and I was not pleased at all with this visit. The clerk was upset because she was being forced... More

Shrimp Express has very good food. They give you a lot for the money. Their fish and shrimp meals are very good.

They are always busy for a reason. The Shrimp is plentiful and the prices are reasonable. I've never had bad food here. The service is average NO SUBSTITUTONS will be made, so know exactly what you want before you get to the counter.

Excellent shrimp & fish! Call ahead and avoid the evening wait time. Cash only establishment with no dine in feature. Would improve greatly if they used drive trough for phone orders only and loose the occasional beggar that greets you (nicely) at the door.
