I eyed the Shrimp Shack on our way in to Hunting Island State Park and we had to try it! It is a quintessential hole in the wall with plenty of quirky atmosphere as you order your fried meal at the window and consume it on wooden benches inside or outside. Well worth stopping for the experience. The shrimp were... More

The food here isn't exactly what I'd call gourmet. The baskets, burgers, fries and whatnot are more suited to kids. We stopped once and once was enough.

My husband and I vacation at Harbor Island almost every summer. This is the first time we have stopped at the Shrimp Shack. It was great. The Shrimp Burger is so yummy. It's very fresh and moist. The atmosphere is great too. Locally owned which I love. You have to try this place you won't be disappointed!

Anytime we're in the area, we make Shrimp Shack a lunch destination for at least one of our days' stay! Never disappointing, the Shrimp Burger is a local delicacy!

Sadly when we arrived mid-afternoon, they were out of shrimp! Decided to try the fried flounder sandwich and it was very good. Perhaps I Would have rated higher IF I had the shrimp. Remember, CASH or check only!

Our family got take-out from the Shrimp Shack for lunch. The adults got the shrimp burger and the kids got chicken nuggets and hush puppies. Everything was delicious! I said I could literally have a shrimp burger every day of this vacation!! I definitely recommend the Shrimp Shack!

Inside isn't much to write home about, but their fried seafood is consistently fresh, hot, and tasty. Get it to go for the best experience.

Our family was in town for a local summer festival and we had planned on going to visit friends staying at Fripp Island. They had never been to the Shrimp Shack and were excited. We called to make sure the restaurant was open and it was, saying we'd be there in thirty minutes making the 15 mile trip. When we... More

This was a quaint little dive. Most of the seating is outside. The food is deep fried with a focus on quick seafood. Of note, I was told that their double cheese burger and chilli dogs are good too. In reference to prices, I do think that the prices for their seafood is a bit on the costly side in... More
