BEST NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANT!
Thank you Florida Weekly for recognizing our efforts!
The secret to a successful restaurant is really no secret at all: it’s great food. That’s always been the focus at this steadfast Fort Myers seafood joint, which has eschewed luxurious interior designs and complicated sauces and garnishes in favor of no nonsense dishes served simply to customers who know a good thing when they taste it. Fresh cut fish, handmade crab cakes, fresh chopped salads, buckets of shrimp and scallops, homemade cake and casual, friendly service are among the simple but lasting pleasures at Shrimp Shack. It’s been around for 22 years now and will be, we hope, for many more.
Stop in and visit your BEST NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANT today! Bring the whole family, we have hot, fresh, healthy and very delicious meals made fresh to order, just for you! Thank you Florida Weekly for Naming us BEST Neighborhood Restaurant in #SWFL! We love serving our community and being a part of so many amazing family moments!

What People are Saying
“Our Food was Awesome”
This was our first time here and we loved it. Our food was awesome and our waiter was the “best”. Lee said it was the “best” crab cake he has had since he has been in Florida. We will be returning.
“Shrimp out of this world”
Fantastic, big portions, great service (Steve was great). The best place I’ve gone for seafood in the area yet. Everything prepared to order, even the sauces on the table. Shrimp out of this world. Try the crab dip with homemade chips!!! Place is clean to boot!!!
“I Love The Shrimp Shack”
This place is hands down the best for fried shrimp anywhere. I loved their shrimp and Manhattan clam chowder. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in all of Ft Myers. The staff are all very friendly. I love the Shrimp Shack.
“Something for Everyone”
Extensive menu, quick service, and friendly servers. My favorite dishes are the shrimp coated in a spicy cajun cream sauce and the crab legs. Both are delicious and very filling. There’s something for everyone at the Shrimp Shack.
