After reading the reviews , I was excited to try the Shrimp Burger ... After about a 15 minute wait , I finally got my food and boy was I disappointed . A bun with tartar sauce and a patty made of ground shrimp and some sort of mysterious bonding agent , that was it ... No tomatoes , no... More

I ate the recommended Shrimp Burger and then ordered a second meal and ate the shrimp and scallops. They were great. You walk up and order your food and then you can eat either inside or out. The atmosphere is very laid back and nice. Everything is fried. I like it that way, but if you prefer your seafood prepared... More

My husband found out about this in a shrimp and grits book. When we arrived, there were car tags from all over the Eastern US. We stood in line for our famous shrimp burgers and were able to eat in the gazebo next door to the main building. The shrimp burgers were devised from shrimpers who ate them at sea.... More

Simple site and good fresh local fried seafood. Enjoyed the shrimp burger, a bit pricey for the size, but good tasting and delicious hush puppies. Crab cake was very good with fried shrimp. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fresh fried seafood at a picnic table with cool salty breeze.

We read mixed reviews about this place. The most popular thing seems to be the shrimp burger. It is shredded shrimp that has been put in a patty and deep fried. I did not have it, but my friend did. She thought it was good. I had the flounder sandwich tartar sauce and I thought it was tasty. It was... More

I happened upon Shrimp Shack around 10 years ago and since then I've been thinking of the sweet potato sticks (not fries). Alas, I finally make it back and find out the manufacturer of those wonderful things went out of biz. So I tried the shrimp burger (my first ever) and I was back in love. I got the regular... More

If you are in the area and like seafood this is the place to go. The hours are different so make sure to find out when they are open before you go.

I just hate to have everything fried...especially shrimp that is local. This is a walk up and order at the window place. My fried shrimp plate was 9.25. It had 8 fried shrimp, 2 hush puppies, and 2 sides. I chose green beans and onion rings. It was sticky and hot...a low tech low place...but atmosphere good for a beachy... More

I was a little hesitant at first, after all it does have the word shack in it's name, but boy was I surprised. I ordered the fried scallops dinner with onion rings and coleslaw and a shrimp burger. The scallops literally melted in my mouth. They had just the perfect outside fried coating on them. Even the onion rings were... More
