Our first visit, we were impressed by the food and the service! The place is very clean inside, they are really sanitizing well between seatings. The menu is ridiculously long and has so many great seafood choices!! Fried versions are definitely their forte but healthy...eaters can find plenty of choices as well. We started with orders of fried mushrooms (really great dipping sauce) and a buttery Parmesan version of the “sauced shrimp” (so decadently good). Off to a great start. For dinners, we went with stuffed shrimp (a great rendition) and the whole belly fried clams (the best I’ve ever had in FL - those that love them need to try them here). The only other place that comes close with the whole belly clams is The Clambake but prices here are more reasonable. Our server was great throughout the meal. We will definitely return.More

What a wonderful surprise. Not expecting much from the restaurant name, since I’m from New England and it wasn’t on the beach! I was so surprised the food was excellent. All four of our meals were delicious and well cooked. I often try basic meals...for health reasons and feel if you can’t do those right and you shouldn’t expect much from the other meals. Well, the peel and eat shrimp was messy and delicious-just as promised! That is as basic as it gets. The shrimp tacos exceeded expectations as did the boom boom shrimp and butter Parmesan shrimp. Don’t even get me started on the hush puppies! I don’t think there was any food left when lunch was over. Can’t wait to travel so we have a reason to eat here again.More

Since we went 4 times in 5 days obviously it was wonderful. First off they have a $1 draft and $3 wine happy hour. The hush puppies are the best I have ever had. Their onion rings are home make and are sweet and delicious....The Boom, Boom shrimp is as good as Bonefish and I ordered two days in a row. The fish and chips wonderful with a large Cod filet. We had fried shrimp the first night and it was good but prefer the Boom Boom. The wait staff were on it letting us know the first night about happy hour 3-6. The food came out hot. Just the way I like it. No one likes cold fried foods. I wish this was in our area.More

Was recommended by friends so tonight we gave it a try, so glad we did! Loved the sea foam salad dressing-French style. Coleslaw was tasty, a little sweet; corn nuggets were perfect. I ordered clam strip lite dinner, husband got clam lovers dinner, our friends...ordered Parmesan chicken dinner, stuffed shrimp dinner. Best flavoring ever on husband’s grilled shrimp...saw they sold the secret seasoning spices and bought 2 bottles, it was that good!!!! Will definitely be back next time we’re in Ft. Myers :)More

We were in the area shopping and found the Shrimp Shack. After reading reviews we decided to give it a try and so glad we did. The food was amazing and our server Cathy was excellent. We had the blackened shrimp with rice and the...Neptune platter both were excellent. I would definitely return and highly recommend this restaurant. The desserts looked amazing and I wish I glad gotten one to go.More
