Description: We are proud to serve the freshest Gulf Seafood on the market. In addition we only buy wild caught seafood we will NEVER buy any farm raised seafood. Our kitchen is a fusion of The Gulf Coast; from New Orleans to the Tampa Beach Coast and their regional influences. Most of our Ingredients are Fresh from the Gulf and Florida. We don’t have walk-in coolers or big storage areas so we have to go to the market often to guarantee the freshness of our ingredients. In addition we offer 16 craft beers on tap many from the local area and New orleans

Shrimpys has the best Shrimp Bisque, Gumbo,Po Boys, and Pizza on the beaches! They offer a truly unique menu that is revised on a regular basis. Great atmosphere and wonderful owners Richard & Tara !

“Great food and great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

My boyfriend and I were riding around Treasure Island and realizing we were hungry, looked around for a nice place to stop and eat. Luck was on our side as we later realized, we found our new favorite restaurant! They had a great selection, the service was speedy and the food was there before we knew it! I had some excellent shrimp and my boyfriend had the pizza. Although I'm not a big pizza or shrimp eater, this was the absolute BEST food we've ever tasted. I recommend this place to EVERYBODY in the area. You have got to try this place.

“Enjoyed our Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

My husband lived in New Orleans for years, so we are always up for Cajun/Creole fare. We ate at Shrimpy's the night before last and really liked it. Sat at the bar and started with shrimp salsa. Both salsa and chips were obviously house made, and the chips came out hot. A deal for $3 bucks. We also split a shrimp po-boy which was huge. I didn't even finish my half. There was a kind of steep $4 split plate charge, but that was somewhat offset because it included an additional side. Food was tasty, beer was reasonable at $5 a pint for craft brands like Abita, and the staff very friendly. We would go back if in the area.

“Tasty food with nice sized portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

We tried this based on other reviews we'd read. The staff was friendly and attentive. We each had a sandwich with a side of shrimp bisque. It was all good, but not exceptional. Wine is $7/glass; beer was $3/half pint or $5/pint generally. They had some good sounding early bird (before 5:30 pm) specials which I would be tempted to try.

“Better than expected!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

My husband and I really enjoyed our trip to Shrimpys, despite some of the reviews listed. The proportions were good for the prices, the place was clean and nicely decorated with the handmade fish structures on the walls, and the staff was very helpful. We absolutely plan to return on our next trip to Treasure Island.
