We got etouffee (large plate, very good, not too spicy), catfish and popcorn shrimp. Large portions, good options on sides. Glad we went a little out of the way. Mainly fried seafood but we like fried seafood.

There is no better place to eat between DFW and Houston. We were in mourning when the place closed for 3 years. It is back and the seafood is fresh and cheap. The etouffee was full of crawfish and at $5 a filling appetizer. The...More

Shared the fish and shrimp platter. Came with fries, Cole slaw and hush puppies. We shared and there was still leftovers. Too full to try any desserts. Definitely worth the stop!

This restaurant was wonderful when it was open but it's been close three or four years so don't waste your time. There is no good seafood anywhere in this town

I've tried bread pudding lots of places and none can touch Shrimpy's. The seafood is also delicious.

I only ever ordered carryout at Shrimpy's but it was always great! The fish and shrimp and hushpuppies and fries...I could go on. The food is great and well priced.
