We stopped in on a cold afternoon and had soup and sandwiches for lunch. I thought the food was just average with the exception of the shrimp burger. The place itself is interesting and I will give it another try. Be advised they only accept cash no credit cards and their hours are limited..

Drove down from Augusta for a short getaway and saw this little place on the side of the road. Decided to stop because I saw it listed on TripAdvisor. The place is not for fine dining but if you want a relaxed atmosphere and good food then this is the place. My wife and i had the shrimp dinner with... More

This little place has been around forever, and many of the people who work there have been there forever. They continue to offer quality food, well-prepared at a great price! I love shrimp, and of all the places in the area, their fried shrimp are the BEST!

The seafood dinner and the shrimp burger are delicious. This place is a throw back. It's a road side seafood shack. Truly. Worth a trip in for a bite to eat.

I have been visiting Harbor and Hunting Islands 25 years and passed by the Shrimp Shack, wondering if & when it was ever open. Finally, last summer stopped & had a shrimp burger. Delicious! Went back in Late September and had a crab cake. Not as tasty. It had too much of a muddy taste. The more I ate, the... More

Cute little hole in the wall place. Food was about average quality. We don't get to eat shrimp burgers and crab cake sandwiches everyday where we live so it was exciting for a minute. They do not take cards so if you eat here bring cash!

As usual excited for sea food in a new island this restaurant looked really nice from outside. We ordered shrimp dinner and Crab dinner. It was fried shrimp and stuffed crab. It was normal. I thought 7 to 8 dollars was a good price for the dish rather than paying &25 for both. No credit cards accepted...Only cash or checks.

The shrimp that are served here come from Gay's Seafood just down the street. We bought some fresh seafood from Gay's that was excellent. And enjoyed eating the fresh seafood cooked at the shrimp house. It truly is a "shack" in terms of size. You order at a window. They call your number when your order is ready. Eat on/with... More

Reserve the screened-in gazebo and enjoy your meal outside. Nice selection of seafood items. For non-seafood eaters they offer burgers, dogs, corn dogs, etc. Very nice and accommodating for our group of 13.
