The Shrimp Shack in Anacortes
One of the joys of traveling is finding small local eateries that serve fabulous food. One such example is the Shrimp Shack located near Deception Pass State Park in Washington. Located on the main road towards the State Park, it’s easy to find and has a steady following of loyal customers. Many of those customers are locals. Others hail from far and wide.
Opened in 1973 by Dieter and Laurel Drews, the Shrimp Shack is a small white building with two windows where you can order a variety of local seafood specialties such as whole cooked shrimp, oysters, and clam. The American flag flutters in the sea breeze, and a huge shrimp painted on the side of the building clearly indicates the specialty of the house. There is no indoor dining, but it is easy to snag a spot at one of the picnic tables. The owners strive to serve local products and the oysters in their enomously popular Oyster Burgers hail from a local grower. The Shrimp Shack also offers top quality burgers made from natural organically raised beef.
