A little out of the way, but worth it. Good place for groups and if you were alone like me. Service was great.

The food no matter what you get it made fresh and with care. Never rancid oil always fresh ...the soups are made from scratch

This is a must. You want a great meal don't miss this one. Went with a large group everyone got a different thing on the menu. Onion rings were amazing.

Shwings emphasis is clearly on fried food....wings, shrimp, chicken & fish...but there's more to the place.

On our visit there were four, clearly homemade soups, a half dozen specials and even smoked trout & salmon. Not what you'd expect in a strip mall joint along Mannheim Road.

The fried shrimp were PERFECT...not too much breading or too long frying!!

Worth the visit...sweet, friendly ladies run the place and make you feel at home.

Upgrade from the chains and support a local business!!

The location is in a strip mall, but parking is a little tricky. Feel free to eat inside as there's more indoor seating than you'd think, maybe 10 tables.

The traditional wings were a great choice. They also have chicken strips, which I will definitely try sometime. We tried the cajun and the buffalo. Both had a smokey and tangy sauce that nicely complemented the meat. The wings were crispy fried skin, but inside was moist and juicy. 5wings/$3.50

The shrimp options are popcorn, large, or jumbo, and are sold by weight. I like a lighter breading,so this was a little too thick for me. The shrimp were good size, and tasted pretty fresh for being deep fried. $8.50/half lb.

Overall, I'd go back for the wings, handcut fries, quick service, and the friendly staff. Only downside, we forgot to ask for a ranch/bleu cheese and weren't offered any.
