Do not let the long lines fool you. This restaurant is the epitome of efficiency. Their very cordial and capable waitstaff can really handle people. They have a wide variety of items on the menu and quick to answer any questions you might have. The food is quite good and reasonable priced. This place is sure to please.

Every year when we head to Fort Myers, the first place we stop is the Shrimp Shack. We love to start our vacation with Buffalo Shrimp, clam chowder, and onion rings. The Buffalo Shrimp aren't overcooked so the shrimp are tender and sweet! We usually come back a couple of more times for the fried shrimp or fresh fish. The servers are great and when it's busy and we eat at the bar, the bar tender is great too!

We find when we head back home, we're longing for Buffalo Shrimp. Wish we could find any place else that comes close.

noisy, crowded, fun place if you are NOT looking for anything special. They have only 2 beers on draft, but offer lots in bottles. Service was good for a very crowded evening. Food is just ordinary, but edible. We used a coupon and they were flexible on what you could use it for, IF IT WAS FOR WHITE FISH. I can see lots of people being attracted to the Shrimp shacks. Give it a try.

It's loud and busy, so not a good place if you're interested in quiet conversation. The shrimp were good, with a tasty sauce that was spicy, as advertised. The beer selection was poor, but typical for the area. Our server started off really grouchy and dismissive, but warmed up slightly as the meal went on. She did handle a miscommunication about one of our meals well, however.

There's nothing really wrong with the place, I'm just not in any hurry to go back.
