Found TWS on tripadvisor after searching for a places to eat shrimp with the kids. We were skeptical about going bc we were to arrive about 40 minutes before they closed. We got our food about 5 minutes after ordering and everything tasted great! Service was A+ as was the food and atmosphere! If ever in the area again we... More

Had lunch here. We both got the fried shrimp special, shrimp, slaw and fries. Shrimp was very good with a light batter. Slaw was very good, mayonnaise based with just right mayo. Service was really good.

This little joint in the heart of Daphne, AL is all about locally sourced shrimp (and fish). Grilled or fried you won't go away hungry or unsatisfied. We now go particularly on either Wednesday or Thursday to get the 12 Jumbo Shrimp special. Shrimp any way, two sides (I'm particularly a fan of the french fries for their perfect balance... More

There is nothing more aggravating for me living so close to the ocean than a restaurant who uses imported frozen seafood vs. supporting our local economy and providing their customers with fresh local seafood (a pet peeve even at our local grocers!). So seeing their sign out front stating Gulf Seafood was already making me happy. We went in on... More

As happens to everyone at times, the dining trio minus one found it necessary to do something quick and easy, which means fast food. We were heading home from Fairhope when the Wacky Shrimp came to mind. I admit I had my doubts about seafood fast food but neither of us was in the mood for a burger and decided... More

Really good fried shrimp, good price, but horrible service! I go there quite often, every time my order is not correct! I usually get mine to go, and when I arrive home I always get a surprise, not a good one! Last night I called back to complain, they don't answer the phone very professionally either, but the girl just... More

It doesn't matter what you order : fish,shrimp,oyster,chicken or a combination you will get all you can eat . The staff is young and energetic checking to see if you need anything and if it's good which it always is . I took some friends from LasVegas there and they ate until they were about to pop, everyone we have... More

This isn't yo momma's shrimp restaurant...Wacky Shrimp also has burgers and wickedly awesome coleslaw and fries. You have to try the broiled popcorn shrimp! I guarantee you will take most of it home. Not too many places have delicious unsweet tea but Wacky Shrimp does! Even the ice is perfect little bite size pieces! The staff genuinely seem to enjoy... More
