Don't think it's handicap accessible. I think the food could be better and the selection more varied. Everything is ordered and received thru a takeout window. Little human contact. Scenic place with erratic hours, try Johnson's Creek nearby good food and nice atmosphere.

In the winter months, we drive by this little place all the time and after reading very mixed reviews, we decided to stop and try the shrimp burger. It was just over $13 for two and they were small. But, we were glad we stopped. The shrimp burger was very good, big pieces of shrimp and I could be wrong... More

I have been going here since I moved to Bft in 1996. It's a must stop after a great day at the beach! Even after not being able to go for several years, the most recent stop tasted just as great as the first time. I have never had anything but the shrimp burger, but why try something else when...

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.
