After spending the afternoon at Riverbanks Zoo, we headed over to Sumter to bring back memories of my Air Force days and decided to eat at The Shrimper. It turned out to be very good. The shrimp, the flounder and the chicken were all tasty....More

Stopped here late night for some fried fish and they didn't disappoint. Had the whiting and shrimp with mac&cheese, green beans and hushpuppies and it was delicious. Seasoned well and it was served hot. No cocktails served.

One of the best things about this place is that they don't share their frying grease with the seafood! I am allergic to seafood and it's so hard to find a place that cares enough to do this!! It is refreshing! Wonderful food and great...More

Service was relatively fast. It was during the lunch rush. Food was good but a little on the oily side.

I don't like the seafood here, but when my friend likes to eat here I settle for the Maryland fried chicken. I think their chicken tastes better than some of the fast food chicken places.

Seafood restaurant in Sumter Sc that serves Caolina style fried shrimp, ocean fish both fried and broiled, hush puppies, vegetables. Known mostly to locals who don't mind the 50's style decor. Everything is clean as a whistle, stand in line to give your order, then they bring to you. Basic prices are lowest possible, but the chef knows his seafood.
