“Good Food”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This Shack is good. Service always good and great scallops. I have to say that I was never disappointed at the Shrimp Shack. I think that it is average because it is not fancy or different from any other place. It's fish served well. That's it.

“Good as always”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

My wife loves to eat here! We eat here several times a year and last night was as good as always. The staff is very friendly and accommodating; Shrimp Shack is a good place for a good (fried) seafood meal at a reasonable price. Always happy with the Shrimp Shack.

“Absloute Garbage”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

canned vegetable (green Beans) served with worth shrimp (boiled) disguised with butter on top. I am not even sure if they serve fresh shrimp. When I go to restaurant, I go to eat and have fun, Not to read classified ads on paper placemats. No class to this restaurant which operates on cheap budget but asks for full price. By the way, They do not serve "Grilled" shrimp. One waiter said "yes" another said "No", they are really pushing their "fried" crap. The fries were the same as frozen store bought potatoes. I don't think any items they served were fresh

Really?! I think all reviewers should have to prove they ate here. First off the shrimp and all seafood is available fried, broiled or blackened. NOT BOILED!
We may not be for everyone, but we must do a pretty good job for the majority. We have people that eat here EVERYDAY and some that eat here THREE to FOUR times a week. We are very busy and have been in business for 15 years. So all I can say is come in and judge for yourself.

“Cheap, just Okay.”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The service was Okay. The food was very average. Green beans were mush. The blacken shrimp was very mild. The hush puppies were very hard. The french fries were crinkle cut fries. The fries were the same as frozen store bought potatoes.
