Just dined there last night, and learned that after 20 years the best shrimp place in the area will be closing. I can recall many late night drives to Killer Shrimp for the shrimp and pasta! Get there before the last day and have a bowl of the shrimp and pasta! The chocolate cake is also excellent.

Bye, Killer Shrimp - you will be missed!!

Pros: Near the beach

Cons: Parking can be a challenge

I love this place. I have been a customer since 1990. I have visited all locations and everything is consistant. The food and the service is great. Too bad this location is closed, but the Marina Del Rey branch (The original location) is still around. Happy shrimping.

I am amazed there are reviews of a restaurant that closed (due to a lack of business) over a year ago.

I've attempted to edit this, but your website doesn't accept notices of OUT OF BUSINESS.

Also Cafe Tehran moved from Studio City to Encino a few years ago, fix the website. I tried changing the address in my review, but the changes were not accepted.

Today, my date and I just attempted to go on an afternoon date here at Killer Shrimp. He hadn't been to this location within a year... He has been to the other location in West Los Angeles within the last 6 months! But he assured me that both locations have killer food! Unfortunately, he arrived there (traffic was horrible today, so he beat me), the sign was down and the placed was closed. :( Too bad, I heard good things about this restaurant.... I guess I will have to go to West LA for some Killer Shrimp.

I LOVE Killer Shrimp! The menu is simple, but the food is excellent! I love dipping the bread in the spicy broth. The service is nothing extraordinary but I really like the atmosphere. This restaurant in definitely in my top five.

Pros: Great food

Cons: A little pricey

the shrimp was definitely tasty, but the style of the restaurant didnt fit the menu. Not a good value. If the same food was served at a clam shack by the ocean and it cost half as much I would say it was awesome.

I like Killer Shrimp - although I must admit my girlfriends are a little more gung-ho than I am. But definitely try it if you like spicy and unique. Get the original in-shall shrimp. Lots and lots of lemon will be needed too. I think the shrimp are kind of bland - but the broth is yummy. Have some wine - great for a girls dinner. Don't forget the chocolate cake........mmmmmmm

Pros: Unique, spicy, eat with your hands

Cons: Eat with your hands, can be bland

I got to start off by saying I love this place since the first time I went there. The short menu of Shrimp in a soupy dish. The spices and flavoring is great to dip the bread in. The ambiance of the place a bit on the dark side but I dont mind because it is quite cozy with friendly service added each and every time Ive dined there. There is always parking.

Oh man it's true - this shrimp is killer - killer tasty - killer spicy and killer addictive. You can have shrimp with rice or bread and they offer for 1$ more to peel it for you - worth it! the shrimp is amazing and the spicy soup that it floats in is even better - go straight for the bread basket and dip the bread in the spicy soup - and to hell with the carbs - cause it tastes so good!

PROS: great spicy shrimp
CONS: if you don't like shrimp - this is not your place - that's all they offer.

The place has a limited menu because it only serves shrimp. But that is their forte. The broth is very, very tasty, and having it with a side of rice or bread can warm the belly. If you don't want to get messy pay the $2.00 to have the shrimp pealed. The Cesar Salad was was excellent. I can't wait to go back and try the shrimp with rice. The server said to order the rice on the side.

Cons: Dark

all i can say about this place is, WHAT A DUMP. the walls of this place are painted dark and the lighting is equally so, probably so you won't see what your food looks like. and the food, you ask? a big bowl of spicy shrimp drowned and swimming in OIL. if you consider greasy shrimp a good meal, you've found your haven. personally, picking the shells off of oily shrimp and eating them is not my idea of a good meal. DISGUSTING is the best adjective i can find for this place.

Looking forward to a fabulous seafood dinner, dont attempt to find it at this restaurant. Ambiance was less than favorable as was the rude service. The waitresses would rather run behind the bar where there were not any customers to serve than to answer any questions one has regarding the menu. I was trying to find out about the spice intensity of the food. The waitress was very snappy and walked away in the middle of the conversation. Negative food marks would include stale bread, veins in your shrimp in the shrimp cocktail as well as in the Original Bread Bowl dish. If you dont mind those veins, then you wont mind the ones in the shrimp pasta dish which are only half removed. They are certainly diligent though in taking your bill and wishing you a good night.

I LOOOOVE the bread and shrimp item. It is a slightly spicy, soupy "stew" that you eat with dipping the bread. It is sooo delicious and it is definitely enough for two adults to share. Another time I tried the shrimp and pasta which was not as impressive. I will never get that again. The only damper is the ambience. Its dim, but not really in a romantic kind of way and its kind of a mood killer. I would probably go there more often if it werent for the ambience.

Killer Shrimp is delish! Although I was shocked they only had 3 menu items, it was okay. I chose the shrimp in the sauce, put the bib on, and went grabbing for shrimp and bread. Not for those who dont like to get dirty eating. Their sauce is great and my brother and I finished up the whole bowl. Recommended for shrimp lovers like myself. Order 1 thing for 3 people- trust me!

My 1st time at K.S. was in 1986, most recent - 3 days ago. The food is always awesome. The taste from your first experience has sent me over the edge with mad cravings for the steaming broth in big white bowls, with the slice fresh soft french bread ready for dipping! Stop & get a the kiddies a Happy Meal, wear a bib and CHOW DOWN! Save room for that decadent sweet potatoe pecan pie with homemade whipped cream!! My mom took me, and now I take everyone I know! Take out is great too! Can be romantic outside on deck (MDR) with a full moon!

Pros: CONSISTENCY, Fast Service, Great waitresses

Cons: One bathroom, Parking is trying, Sat. nite, long lines

.

They only serve what they are great at. Their menu consists of shrimp over rice, pasta or in an amazing stew with bread to dip. And for $1 extra you can get them peeled. The best ceasar dressing I have ever had and the pecan pie is perfection. I don't recommend this place if you don't eat shrimp. It is all they serve. Great Food!

Pros: Sauce on Shrimp, Location, Salad

Cons: Lack of Variety, decor is dated

.

I tried this place after reading reviews here. Get the shrimp & bread combo. The shrimp isn't peeled so you gotta de-vein the shrimp but the broth is where it's at. The shrimp & rice isn't as good because the rice sucks up all the broth. The shrimp, broth and bread go excellent with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I'd go tear it up over there any time.

Killer shrimp is tucked away on the second story of a strip mall. It is darkly lit by pillar candles, and the seating reminds one of Denny's. Don't be turned off by the atmosphere, because you'll miss out on a delectable broth seasoned with shallots, chili and butter, filled with large, fresh shrimp. Don't skip the sweet potato/pecan pie, it is topped with fresh cream. The wine is cheap and decent.

My boyfriend took me out on valentines to Killer Shrimp. He has always talked this place up, and I was both curious and excited to finally go.

I was amazed! I love shrimp, and the taste even exceeded my expectations. If you love shrimp, Killer Shrimp is a MUST!

I love Killer Shrimp, I'm even going back to take him out this valentines day!

The limited menu makes it easy to order. If you don't want Cajun style spicy shrimp don't go.

The best part of the experience is to dine on the patio - which is enclosed with smoked glass -very plesent especially at sunset. The food is inexpensive and you don't leave hungry - the sweet potato pie with real whipped cream is still the best desert. I tried the key lime pie and it was just so-so.

If you like shrimp with a little spice this is the place to go. For the full experience I suggest the unpealed shrimp with bread. Make a mess, eat the shrimp, and dip the bread in the broth.

If you like spicy shrimp dishes, and you don't like a lot of choices on a menu, Killer Shrimp is the place to go. Your choices are basically shrimp, shrimp with pasta or shrimp with rice...and that's all. Glass of bad wine is $3, but still worth it. If you aren't that hungry, two people can share one meal, which would leave room for their delicious Pecan Pie (the only dessert choice). Dark booths, great food and cool waitresses, who somehow remember you visit to visit make this place a must try in the Valley.

In Short
Inside the spacious, minimalist room, shiny black tables and faux-snakeskin booths sit beside unembellished, mustard-colored walls. A single sheet of white paper garnishes each table: This is the menu. Three dishes are…
