This is about the only place in the area to purchase real fresh sea food. They also will boil shrimp on site. I get to buy shrimp and crab and fish when I have extra $

Buying seafood in a landlocked state - am I courting disaster? Not at the Shrimp Dock.

I've had consistent quality there. Gorgeous sushi-grade tuna, grouper that just melts, and the big-uns (massive shrimp) are too good to pass up. I always stick with the fresh seafood here - I did get a mushy frozen lobster once. And, be sure to only buy clams, oysters, and mussels in months that contain a "R." In any case, my best advice is not to go in with a preconceived notion of what you want. Ask them what is good & fresh, and they won't steer you wrong. They also throw a killer Cinco de Mayo party - free, all-you-can-eat seafood, BYOB in a big cooler. It's a blast!!!!

They often offer samples, and their seafood dips are not to be missed. Friendly staff - make you want to hang out with them and perhaps linger a few extra minutes. They also special order in large quantities for parties.

Pros: Killer shrimp, fun staff

Cons: don't buy clams and oysters in the summer unless they're flown in from cold waters

The Shrimp Dock is the most authenic seafood place in town. They offer a huge variety of seafood. The staff is always very polite and they offer a ton of parking spaces. Prices are not bad especially for the quality of food you are served.

I love this place and my husband does too. Our son-in-law introduced us to this place. They carry like every kind of seafood in this shop and they are all great. I does smell kind of fishy - :-) - that is a bad pun - lol - but they are a great little shop and have tons of parking. They are always very busy and are very well known in town as the best seafood place to buy fresh seafood and all the things that go along with it to buy on the side. Try them out some time - you won't be sorry!!
