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 is tucked away, nicely lit inside and out. Your mouth will thank you for seeking out this hidden gem in the shopping center just before one reaches Gulf Boulevard. The food has a Cajun accent as well as Cuban with lots of fresh seafood as the star of the show! Wonderful and unique breakfast fare topped off with toasted cuban bread. Lush avocados, black beans and rice, a light and delicious creamy pasta dish with crawfish and scallops are wonderful here. The house made chips and salsa are worth the trip alone. I have an abiding fondness for the boom boom shrimp appetizer, too. They feature a good array of craft beers and select wines. Here's hoping you get the chance to enjoy this sweet treasure on Treasure Island, Fl.

We just got in and decided to try Shrimpy's! Great decision! This is a small place, seats maybe, 60. The food is fantastic, the staff uber friendly, and helpful! Definitely try the Key lime grilled sea bass! Delicious!

This was the first restaurant we visited during our week long beach vacation. It was great but made most of the other meals pale in comparison. My husband loved the shrimp po' boy. Good selection of craft beers. Kids loved it too.

We read the reviews and heard others mention this. Just across the street from the Bilmar Resort in the small strip shops. The place is exceptionally clean and the food is wonderful!
Had gulf shrimp appetizer, shrimp bisque soup, red grouper, the BEST sesame ginger dressing on our salads, red beans and rice. Don't miss it - you'll enjoy this food. Richard, the owner, and his staff are very friendly!

A great place for some fresh food. Lots to choose from on the menu. Not a lot of room for large groups but some tables available outside.
