Our Dream

The Best in Town

The Shrimp Shack started many years ago with a simple dream to combine our passion for really good, fresh made food with the desire to serve the local community and offer a low key, casual dining experience to everyday people. We are locally owned and strive to give every customer the best products with the best service in town. We make everything from scratch everyday so that the hard working people who walk through our doors can relax, sit back and just enjoy a good meal in a good atmosphere surrounded by good people who are happy to be of service.

“We take great pride in our service and our food.”
Kathy Harshman

What People are Saying

“You Guys are Great”

Our server Dori was amazing to start. Oysters, shrimp, white fish were delectable! Not to mention dessert. Orange cake is a bit of heaven. Atmosphere here is great, food delivered hot and prompt. Restaurant was busy, but our server was always there to make sure our beverages was full. Manager even stopped by to make sure everything was great. You guys are great!

“Shrimp is Great”

Start off with the New England Clam Chowder, it’s amazing. Shrimp is great, I get the boom boom on the side. Comes with a 2 sides and hush puppies. The fries are fresh, the caesar salad is ok. Place isn’t fancy but the food is where it counts. Service the last 3 times has been awesome too. Give this place a try.

“Best Fried Shrimp”

Best place to get the fried shrimp. The pricing is very reasonable and it’s a good family atmosphere. It’s also the only place in Fort Meyers they called me HONEY.

Charles B.


Delicious place to eat. It’s a local favorite and they’re usually pretty quick. For it being seafood, it’s not very expensive. The staff is very nice. It has grown in popularity and is crowded when season hits.
