buffetbuster- Ditto! O'steens is the best for shrimp. I actually prefer to wait at O'steens because you can browse the huge antique store next door. There's a speaker in the store that will call you when your table is ready.

    The best I have had,thusfar,is a restaurant named Redds Snapper,located in the heart of Milwaukee.(3 locations)Dont go there much as the neighborhoods are pretty dangerous.Will have to check out Milwfoodlovers suggestion.(Lets meet one night!)

      Calabash NC....when the name of the town on the ocean
      is synonymous with a cooking style, ...you're on the
      right track.

        Greymo- Whoops! I almost forgot about Dixie Crossroads. I've only been there twice. Once in Orlando and once in Titusville. I never had their fried shrimp, but I have had their coconut shrimp, which is the best I've had. I've also had their rock shrimp, which I think is broiled. It tastes like lobster. Definetely worth a try if you never had them before.

          I wish I could remember the name of the place but theres a seafood place close to Rock Port Texas (which is close to the coast) that had some of the biggest and best tasting fried shrimp I had in my life. If I can find the name of the place I'll post it later.

            Trojha's (IN Chicago) is #1 , at least in the Midwest. Located on 22nd street. Cpat. Hooks on Roosevelt and Ashland (hate to say this....in the strip mall) is a close #2.

              Wintzell's in Mobile, Alabama. Great for fried everything, not to mention oysters.

                I always liked the fried shrimp on the City Pier on Anna Maria Island in Florida. I don't know if it's still there or not. The best shrimp I can get now is a Charlie's Seafood in Lexington, KY. It's alright, but nothing like the fresh Gulf shrimp.

                    Long John Silver's "shrimp" taste like their "fish", their, "clams", etc. and the taste stays with you allllllllllll day. I eat there on occasion anyway, love to drown everything in malt vinegar. The only decent shrimp around here is at "Northwest Grille". We do have two seafood markets, owned by the same people that will cook your fresh picked out seafood on site to take home. It never makes it home.

                      Bahr's restaurant, Atlantic Highlands NJ

                      Go for lunch, 12.99 for 5 jumbo shrimp

                      In Fla, I agree; Barnicle Bill's, O'steens and Dixie Crossroads are great.
