The "crew" at the Shrimp Dock are great. Good service and very good seafood lunch. I like Tuesday's special, the Shrimp Po' Boys. You might have tried a shrimp po' boy somewhere else but try one at the Shrimp Dock and you will be back. The shrimp are stacked thick on the roll. You have to eat some of them... More

On Tuesdays I pick up the special on Shrimp Po Boys and it is great. Sooo much shrimp and add two sides - I like the ear of corn and jambalya.

We are so fortunate to have this business in town. We primarily buy seafood to take home and cook. The shrimp and salmon are our favorites but have also bought crab cakes and other fish. Cost more than grocery stores but the fresh ess is worth it. They also sell carmel cakes for Eva's to go and they are to... More

Their seafood is flown in fresh daily. Eat in, carry out or take home to cook yourself you'll never go wrong. Friendly workers, excellent cooks and reasonable price.

Very fresh seafood, great service and food. Our order was not processed correctly, so the manager made it right, and gave us our money back. That is customer service!!!!! Meals are plentiful in qualntity, and are delicious. Small seating area, high Seats, only 3 regular tables, most get order to go.

Shrimp Dock has po'r boys that are as good as Johnny's in New Orleans.... actually better as they are close by. Anytime I need fish for a recipe, this is my go to place. There is inside eating that is clean and comfortable. It is not "fine dining" but Ill take great food over atmosphere any time

The Shrimp Dock is first and foremost a fish market, and a pretty good, albeit expensive one. They also have a seating area, and you can order about a half dozen fried items, either as a Poboy or on a plate, with two sides and a drink. There is also a daily special...today is Friday, so it was fried catfish... More

As we had never been to the Shrimp Dock before today, we thought since they were running a couple of specials it would be a good time to try it. We had the Shrimp Po Boy and the Tilapia plate. Best. Seafood. Ever! I was really embarrassed that I paid so little for the two plates! Had I known the... More
