Shrimp Shack is one of our favorite Fort Myers restaurants...the food is always well prepared and fresh. Service is generally very good and friendly. On the last few visits, our server brought the dessert tray and gave us descriptions of the desserts while we were still eating our dinners, making us feel rushed. The menu prices are very reasonable and there are plenty of options for those who dont eat fish/seafood.

Mimi wanted to go here on Mother's Day-not disappointed. Moderately crowded, seated immediately. Our server Lauren a gem, took great care of us with staff help. Seafood chowder delicious, all homemade. Mimi (my wife) had Neptune combo, which I had 10 days prior-very good! I had the pick 2 with broiled shrimp scampi (type of sauce-not pasta!), "deck up" of crab cake (additional $8.50, worth it!). Meals come with choice of salad or cole slaw, fries, etc. Great variety on menu, nothing fancy just great food. Enough food to take some home-easily boxed. Will return wen back in town.

Had calamari and whitefish sandwich both were fresh,hot and very good. My wife likes their shrimp and scallops. Have eaten there several times, always good food. Early Bird and senior menu not expensive.

We were very happy with the food and Service at The Shrimp Shack. Lisa was our waitress and she was just a doll. She took amazing care of us and knew exactly what to recommend. We started off with the Shrimp bombs which were perfect. This take on a jalapeño popper was a huge hit. I have the Neptunes Platter which was very good. The food shrimp and scallops were cooked perfectly and the grits were out of this world. My wife had the boom boom shrimp which were delicious. We’ve had it at other places and none of them can touch The Shrimp Shack.

We hadn't been to the crab shack in years. The food was good and service was on the busy side due to the fact it was packed. It was like eating with strangers from sitting so close. We will probably go back but at an off time.

Thanks for the review. Please give us another try soon. It's the summer so we are not as busy. Ask for a booth in the back. We will take good care of you.
