Great seafood. Fried shrimp were delicious. Yummy hush puppies and coleslaw. Sweet potato fries were yummy too. Everything was hot when it was served. Seasoning on the shrimp was very good. I really enjoyed my meal.

We have a condo nearby and decided to try this place for lunch. Food and service were good. We will be back to try for dinner.

Out of the way of IAN. Glad to see they survived. Staff waited onsite until power was restored so they could get the jump on clean up. Local eateries were desperately needed after this disaster hit. Our area lost so many small favorites in this...hurricane, and it took a few weeks until grocery stores were restocked. We frequent this little gem when going to Dr appointments or shopping in this area of Fort Myers.More

Always fresh shrimp prepared in a multitude of ways with mediocre sides (sorry, but it is true) that devalue the well prepared shrimp. Not a destination place but if you are in the neighborhood well... shrimp it is. Expect a $60. Bill for two, water...no dessert, with tip for lunch. They need to up their sides game.More

For fried seafood it doesn't get any better. Easy on the wallet. Service very good. Menu had a warning about possible shortages, but they did not skimp on the amount of food on our plates.

Birthday lunch. Seafood was good - Hand cut chips were AWFUL - soggie -sent back. Then returned Dark Brown - practically burnt. Asked for cup for my drink. "NO" was the answer. We don't give out cups. I said I would BUY one. "NO, only...for carryout orders. I was told they couldn't get cups. I suppose they never heard of Sam's or Costco. Waitress tried to be nice but was faced with an impossible situation. I spent $50. including the tip-they could have provided a cup.More

Unfortunately we can’t get to go cups on a regular basis. Trust me we have tried. So when we can get them at triple the old cost in 2020, we have to save them for the kids and our take out orders. As far as...More

Late dinner, the Shrimp Shack is very roomy diner. Seating are comfortable and the décor dated. Men room do need TLC. The Claim Chowder and the full Grill White Fish were great. The Skipper Catch also nice and good portion.

We were greeted by such a wonderful warm welcome, big smile and helpfulness by Elisa (Alysa?) who helped us find a table we could use with our wheelchair. She came by several times to check on us when our waitress was not available. Our waitress-...Selena, was also excellent- very helpful and knowledgeable. We love the menu and the food- some of the best fried shrimp anywhere! The ambiance is terrific- so many fun posters and characters on the walls. It's a delightful place to visit, and we can't wait to return.More

First time we ever ate here. The Haddock stuffed with crabmeat was excellent. As a suggestion from the excellent waitress (who lives in Cape Coral) who suggested the corn fritters, they were awesome as well!!! After she brought out the desert tray I could not...resist taking the coconut cake along home. It was very moist, not too sweet and delicious! If we are ever in the area we will be back!More

If this place must use canned vegetables then they need to learn how to season them. There food tastes like it was microwaved. Not worth the effort

Yes we use canned green beans and cook them all morning in bacon, seasoning, and onions. We NEVER microwave our food!

Took the kids and my parents to this restaurant. We’ve been here before and we’ve all been happy with our entrées. There is a lot of deep-fried food which is what we all seem to order. Everyone seems to have a good time here and...the way it was not very long. We went at 5:15 PM weekday in March.More
