My husband and I had never been here before. We stopped here with our group of antique boaters. I was a wee bit skeptical given the name. We'll let me just say I haven't had shrimp this good and fresh since catching it myself in the Keys. We had peel n eat, seasoned butterflied grilled (?) and butterflied breaded golden... More

I have been going to Shrimp R Us for several years. The food is always great and the service is always superb! I have seen some folks get upset because they do get busy on weekends, but some folks get upset no matter what! I love the place!

Great locals family restaurant. Come as you are. Wide range of menu selections with emphasis on Shrimp and seafood. We had for an appetizer, conch fritters, crab balls and gator bites followed by the seafood platter for dinner. Large selection of sides to chose from. I ended up taking a doggie box home along with a slice of key lime... More

Visiting friends and they took me here for lunch. Fish sandwich was recommended so I went for it. Wow! Nice sized piece of fish on a grilled bun. I understand it's your choice of the way it's cooked, but went for deep fried. Perfect. Not greasy at all. Frosted mug for the beers! Go, Enjoy!!

Fried shrimp taste fresh and seasoned well. Plenty to choose from on menu. Old place but clean so who cares. Nice drive in country. (Not a hotel).
