After visiting a shop downtown this place was recommended. So happy we visited. Delicious shrimp, good prices . I've never had such delicious hushpuppies.These are the only hushpuppies we liked are whole life! I almost didn't try them. Great place, we will be back.

Shempy's was recommended to us by several of our friends, it was much better than we anticipated. Great selection of fish and fresh daily specials. The staff was wonderful and very friendly. Excellent food!

While working on the campaign trail, I just happened to be on my way back into Rockport on old business 35 and saw this place. Nothing fancy but the food was good with friendly service.

Quirky little place. People were very friendly and service was quick. I took a shrimp po boy and an oyster po boy home for my husband and I. Also a side of fried okra. The okra was great. The po boys were just okay. Not sure if we will go back next time in town.

The food is very good. Seating is a little tight, but usually we get a seat. The prices are reasonable. I always get the oyster basket.

We visit Shempy's Grill about once a month and are never disappointed with their crab burger and fries. They also make a great chili cheeseburger.
