When we vacation at the beach, fresh seafood is a staple in our meals. However, it is hard to find it cooked well. This place has no fishy odor which would make me turn and walk out. We had the royal red shrimp steamed along...More

Steamed shrimp to go was delicious: Royal Reds with their garlic seasoning and white shrimp prepared both mild and spicy. We prepared our own corn and potatoes, but they also have those available. Key Lime Pie never "setup." It was soupy the evening we bought...More

Don't leave without letting them steam your shrimp. They use sliced lemons, peppers, onions and various spices. No charge. Best I've ever had.

Seafood is so dependent on supply and demand. In the Summer there are lots of visitors so the prices tend to be higher on popular items like shrimp and oysters.

If I order shrimp, prepared by them, will they de-shell it?

I'm not sure but after it's steamed it's not difficult at all to shell. Hope this helps.
I have never purchased seafood already prepared like this. How do you reheat it when you get home?

Usually fresh is best. Depending on what it is, grilling is the best way. Never reheat in microwave. Turns to mush. Hope this helps.
