“Delicious Shrimp”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We stopped here for dinner after reading the great reviews here. Didn't feel like doing anything too formal for dinner and this was a great option. The Savage Shrimp has a few tables for dine in option and has take away option as well. The shrimp was delicious and the service was very friendly. Will definitely revisit in the time we are here.

“Tasty, but Messy!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We stopped in for dinner one evening since we had a hankering for shrimp. This was a small hole-in-the-wall place in a local shopping area. It had a food truck vibe to it, but there was seating both inside and out. They were also willing to come to the table to take orders and deliver the food. The primary thing on the menu was shrimp scampi. They had many flavors to choose from, but most came with the peels on. With this presentation, however, you lose most of the tasty coating when the peels are removed. If you go, pay the extra to get your shrimp peeled!

“Nothing fancy but shrimp was good”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

This little place is just a step up from a food truck but located in a nice shopping center. Seating is somewhat limited but there was outdoor seating available. The spicy garlic shrimp was very good. Fried shrimp. coconut shrimp & fish & chips were decent. There is a cat that hangs out nearby & gets some raw shrimp brought to her by the staff every now & then. The cat was not bothersome & our kids enjoyed watching it chase a mouse through the parking lot. Food is still a bit pricey here. The waitress behind the counter who took our order forgot to enter it into the system I guess (you pay after your meal) because my husband & I had to remember what all of us ordered so that we could pay our bill. Kind of weird but not a deal breaker. We got one order of fries free because they sent out regular fries when my son had ordered garlic fries. We would return again & do recommend this place.

“quirky and fantastic”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

This was a highlight for us -- both for food and service. It was nothing fancy but the shrimp was cooked perfectly with crazy good sauces and the woman who served us was a delightful, local character.

It's just Gooooood! This is a small, cafe-like restaurant. Don't let the casual vibe fool you. It's fresh, quality food. My favorite is the scampi and butter-prepared shrimp. Simple and Tasty. Nice owners and staff.
