If you love fresh seafood, it doesn't get any better. The ladies at the Shrimp Shack will definitely take good care of you! We had the Deviled Crab, Fried Shrimp, Onion Rings, Sweet Potato Fries(not like the chain restaurants), Green Beans with real bacon pieces, and that good Southern Sweat Tea. Bangin'!!!

Found this restaurant in two different travel books about SC. They were both correct. It was incredible. We had Shrimp and hushpuppies. They were delicious. Staff was very helpful! Atmosphere is very rustic.

Well worth the trip from MCAS Beaufort. We got take out, food was excellent, portions immense and very reasonably priced. Looking forward to another trip to SC just to get more shrimp burger s.

Fast friendly service. Right down the road from the state park. The family loves this place. My husband LOVES the shrimp. And the burgers are pretty good too. Could use a little updating.

Good for hot dogs, etc... Easy access - on and off the road. Nice to stop there before or after a visit to Fripp/Hunting Island.

The fish sandwich tasted like something you would be served in grade school hot lunch program. There is no way on earth they have cut fresh fish (off the family's Guy fishing boat) to make this sandwich. :( It's clearly a pre-made/frozen, thin, square minced fish patty coated with some kind of bread crumb. Bummer The crabcake sandwich was very... More

This place was recommended as a must visit for shrimp lovers. Don't let the place scare you off. the food is very good and the atmosphere is quite unique. The shrimp comes in from boats just across the road so you get fresh shrimp daily. Yum,Yum! Can't wait to go back.

Cash Only. Shrimp is really good, the fish is not so good. Defiantly the place to go if you want to get fresh fried shrimp.

When you eat shrimp that's just minutes out of the water, it's simply sensational. The Shrimp Shack gets its shrimp and other seafood from the shrimp docks right across the road. You only think you've had shrimp until you've had the shrimp at the Shrimp Shack. Best shrimp EVER.
