The meal Irene recommended is the Surf & Surf which was peel and eat shrimp with Mai Mai on a bed of rice with sauteed onions. The fish was done in a very flavorful sauce and the shrimp were great except for not being de-veined. I noticed a Canadian flag, tattered but still flying so we chatted about that for... More

Some of our group jumped into the sea across the road for a quick dip before lunch. We ordered garlic chilli shrimp and coconut shrimp among other dishes and it was totally... More

I find the Shrimp Shack 5 mins away from our resort, and spontaneous stopped after dropping off a friend at the airport. I ordered their Alaska King Crab meal with garlic prawn and rice 9:30am, took me 30 minutes to polish off that big meal for $31.95. I couldn't believe I got 3 half king crab, and really enjoyed the... More

We hired a car for the day and drove around the island and were told to stop off here. So glad we did. The food was fresh and great tasting. We had coconut shrimp and fish. Yum Definitely make a stop here well worth it

This is a cool place to stop for a plate of shrimps - it's full if character - both the place and the people that work there. The shrimps are fresh and absolutely delicious.

I Highly recommend the garlic shrimp. So delicious. You do have to remove the heads. So much fresh garlic you will not have any trouble with vampires. I also had the orange creamsicle ice cream float. YUM!!!

Stopped on a whim as we were driving past. A fun, food truck! Had the popcorn shrimp, garlic shrimp and clam strips. It was served fast with friendly service. The food was hot and delicious!

This is exactly what you would expect- a big plate of delicious shrimp. The person working it was SO friendly! The shrimp was great- we had garlic shrimp and coconut shrimp. I think the coconut shrimp is way better. The garlic shrimp is good for sure but not as unique as the coconut.
