Darlene’s Shrimp Shack is some kind of different! And…it’s delicious!

While it’s not really a seafood restaurant, not really a restaurant at all…but some of the freshest and most amazing shrimp you will ever eat.

Let’s start with the obvious. It’s a food truck. Don’t let that fool you.

Next, they serve shrimp, hushpuppies (sometimes), french fries and canned drinks. That’s it.

Best of all, it is ALL SO GOOD. They offer hand battered fried shrimp or you can choose “naked” shrimp, which means it has no batter. The fried jumbo shrimp are plump, lightly coated with crunchy panko breadcrumbs rather than dense batter, and cooked to moist perfection with fresh-caught sweet flavor.

A few local favorite flavors are Lemon Pepper, Sweet Pepper Garlic, Cajun, Coconut and more. You don’t want to overlook this place if you love shrimp.

There is a small outdoor seating area right on the water next to the “shack”, there is no indoor dining. It’s pleasant to sit and dine on a nice day but your back is to a very busy street so be prepared for some noise.

But really, you probably won’t notice because the shrimp really is that good. It’s fresh caught and cooked to perfection. You won’t even need a sauce.

Hours of operation are not always consistent but you’ll know if they are open. Posted hours are 11a-3p weekdays with Friday, Saturday and Sunday hours until 8pm. Don’t wait until the end of the day because they almost always sell out!
