We had one order of shrimp, fried green tomatoes and coleslaw, which was enough for two. Everything was fresh, smoking hot and delicious. The Love Shack is inside a market at the very back and it’s quite primitive, but you will love it.

This little place is tucked in the market place on Jekyll Island (shops). Great place to get a basket of shrimp (and of course they have other items as well) with fries. When you're done - shop:-)
