I drove right by this place. I was looking for it. Figured it was out of business. Glad I stopped and asked someone where it was located. So worth the stop. The recommended flat iron steak and home made crispy chips was awesome. The steak was cooked just right. Dean the owner served me himself. I recommend the house salad... More

Tried this place for the first time and we would go back. The service was on point. Tried their fried pickles and can honestly say they are the best that we have had to date, highly recommend. The gumbo was great. The voodoo salad is good, the dressing was a little sweeter then I prefer. I had the shrimp etouffee,... More

I haven't tasted gumbo this good since I've eaten it in Louisiana. The shrimp Po Boy that my wife had was equally well done. And best of all was the fried pecan pie which was a tasty twist to pecan pie. Our waitress was a great waitress and also was the day cook. I would defiantly go back the next... More

Stopped in here for lunch recently and was pleasantly surprised by how delicious our food was. Restaurant was relatively quiet the day we were there. Owner was friendly and chatted for a bit with us and our kids which is a nice touch. Service was quick and efficient. Food was delicious but was a little surprised at the price for... More

Bout dang near the best Pork Tender I've EVER had. Period. Wife loves the red beans and rice too. The Muffelletta (sp) is awesome too. The little pecan pies they give you when you get your check are killer! Friday nights during season are busy as hell but weeknights and off season weekends are easy going. Dean and Theresa are...

Went here on the recommendation of another resort guest and boy are we glad we did. The food was really outstanding and the service beyond compare. The owner came and sat down and visited with us. The burger was flavored perfectly and good quality meat (I'm from Nebraska so a bit picky with beef). The shrimp was fabulous and the... More

If you have a taste for some shrimp, or gumbo this is the place to go. A must have is the Voodoo salad- it will be a delightful add on to a dinner like Grilled Shrimp or Fried Shrimp, but don't stop there try the burgers they are awesome!

We ate lunch at Shrimp Day's on a weekday, so the restaurant was fairly empty. My sister and her daughter live in New Orleans, and thought that the roast beef PoBoy and the catfish were comparable to what we normally find in New Orleans. This was a pleasant surprise. It's not that trumped up uber spicy stuff that so many... More

We are new to the Ozarks and went to visit a family member. She brought us here for dinner and I can say we were so thrilled. My husband had the breaded shrimp with a voodoo salad and gator potato salad and I ate most of his salad. So good!! I had one of the best cheeseburgers I have ever... More

It used to be great but just got more expensive and smaller. $15 and I was still hungry. What's for dinner? I expected a large bowl but instead got a side salad size. Glad my husband shared some gumbo with me. No onion but the picture online shows it. My relatives frowned at their house salads....only bagged lettuce with croutons.... More
