My wife and I stopped here on a trip to Hunting Island State Park. It is a shack. But the food is off the chain. You will be served on paper plates and eat at picnic tables. I even had my dog with me and...More

We stopped by and had the shrimp dinner, shrimp burger and cheeseburger. Food quality was excellent, cozy places to sit outside. Great place to stop while visiting Hunting Island State Park.

Get the large size shrimp burger. It is quite a treat for those who like shrimp that is fried but yet still moist and tasty. The burger by itself is almost $10 with tax, but one of my favorite treats when in the area.

Journeyed to St Helena Island for an incredible Shrimpburger and onion rings. The burger was giant sized and every bite great. The place is a stop that should not be missed if even close.

Shrimp shack is a take out joint with a small patio if passing by! All of the food looks to be fried! Had the scallops and they were fresh and hush puppies were crispy!

Shack is an apt description. You can eat there on a couple of tables and benches but looks like mostly takeout. No alcohol. Our seafood chowder was excellent. Fried ground up shrimp burger was ok. Unusual, and their most popular. It was tasty. Fast food...More

This place is fast, easy, and delicious! After walking up a few steps to the counter, you order off the menu hanging on the wall then they call your number when the food is ready. We waited less than 15 minutes for our food for...More

I grew up in the Lowcountry and fished /shrimped the local waters as a kid. Came back and wanted basic, local seafood - the kind the locals eat and I remember as a kid. Shrimp Shack is the place. Perfectly battered and fried local shrimp...More

The shrimp burger is as good as promised... have it solo or with their selection of sides. Other seafood baskets and non-seafood choices available. They cook it up fresh while you wait. Stay and eat it there or take it to go.

Probably not inside. This is an old roadside eatery that’s been around for multiple decades. Likely hasn’t ‘progressed’ to allowing people to drag their pets into places where people come to eat. They do have some shaded... More
