Ordered two pounds of large steamed shrimp and it was amazing! Staff was polite and courteous. Time from ordering shrimp to walking out the door with it steamed was less than 10 minutes. Definitely recommend this place and will be back next year!

We arrived about 11a. They weren’t too busy. We ordered red shrimp and big as whale shrimp with potatoes and corn. They cooked it right as we waited. You can taste the freshness! Price was right and service was friendly.

I'm not sure but after it's steamed it's not difficult at all to shell. Hope this helps.
