Captain Shrimp is a local seafood restaurant that blends its passion for making tasty food with its extensive knowledge of seafood to create authentic and classic dishes for its customers. The restaurant uses the freshest, locally sourced ingredients and promises to give taste buds something to be excited about.

As you step into the restaurant, the first thing that you notice is the warm welcome from the friendly staff. The atmosphere is old-school style and classic vibes. The menu boasts an impressive array of dishes, but the fried shrimp, wings, catfish, and hush puppies are the most sought-after by patrons. The restaurant’s homemade hot sauce is a true delicacy that enhances the flavors of the already mouth-watering fried dishes.

At Captian Shrimp, ordering fried shrimp is an obvious choice, but the popular restaurant offers more. Another fan favorite is the hush puppies with honey butter. I also recommend trying their fish chips, and basically, this Uptown gem has great-tasting breading. You can check out more reviews of Captain Shrimp on their website
