We stopped here for a late lunch as we drove along the Overseas Highway on our arrival in the Keys. It was an unexpectedly good meal. Crab soup, shrimp basket and fried calamari for $39 left us satisfied and looking forward to other taste treats during our four days in tne Keys. As it turned out, this was among the... More

We couldn't decide which shrimp dinner to order so our waitress, who was very fun & energetic, suggested the "big shrimper". It was perfect. It was also huge, so we shared the dinner. We got to try 4 types of shrimp - fried, shack, coconut & bbq. Our favorites were shack (a sweeter breading that regular fried) & bbq (grilled... More

After walking out of two restaurants tonight, we stumbled upon this gem. The staff was fast, friendly and the food was amazing! We started with the BBQ bacon wrapped shrimp, which was wonderful. Then for meals, I had the Key West Shrimp and my husband had the Continental with Shrimp. Both were delicious. I would highly recommend visiting here. We... More

We stopped at the Shrimp Shack on a to whim, driving back to Miami from Key West. At 3:00 in the afternoon the parking lot was desolate, so we weren't sure what to expect. We were very happy have a great lunch. I had the shimp quesadilla, and my husband had his last blackened fish sandwich of our trip. Both... More

My husband and I have been to Islamorada several times, but had avoided Shrimp Shack because we thought it was like the others we had visited in Florida. Not the case! They had a great menu, not everything was fried, and they even had one of our favorites- Hogfish. I had the Continental- dynamite order! Fresh, huge portion! My husband... More

Key lime martini awesome. Key West beer very good, and only $2.25! Smoked fish spread awesome. Oysters from appilachicola awesome. Only downside sitting in the bar saw employees taking shots and drinking the leftover drinks. Seemed like an episode of bar rescue

Best meal we had in all the Keys! Had the surf and turf as well as the combo basket! Service was great and served fast even though crowed and short handed.

We went for dinner on Valentine's Day and went specifically because of the fritters beings shown on DDD. Well, the fritters were not good- they had a lot of shrimp in them but they were undercooked. They were mushy and soft on the inside. My husband had grouper, and he gets fish a lot in the keys, and this is... More

We stopped in for a late lunch. We ordered an appetizer. It was shrimp wrapped in bacon with barbecue sauce. Wow! Then for lunch I had Blackened shrimp with onion straws. My boyfriend had grilled shrimp with black beans and rice. So delicious! We actually went back for dinner. He had shrimp and grits and I had shrimp tacos. It's... More

Menu selection pretty good. Location right on A1A. Prices a little high. Wait staff and service: above average.
