The place is the best for seafood to take home. I have been getting seafood from them since 1984. The place has changed but not the quality of the seafood. They will pack it in ice for you.

We shopped here years before and had a good experience so we came back this year. We went twice this trip to buy shrimp and both times we were pleased with our purchase. If we go back to Destin, we plan to shop there again.

They had 4 or 5 different types including 1 peeled and a few with heads and tails. I think they were $9.99 a pound up to $15.99 or so based on size. We got the larger ones as we were grilling them.
