St. Pete Gems: 4th Street Shrimp Store, a laid back oasis outside downtown

We’re going fishing on 4th Street at the 4th Street Shrimp Store, a vibrant local hangout at 1006 4th Street North. No, this funky space wasn’t always a restaurant.

The structure was built in 1928 as a service station for Model T Fords. As the years went by, the building was refurbished into a local laundry matt with a small space for a Seafood Market that started serving up great Fried Shrimp Baskets and Grouper Sandwiches.

The best clam strips in the ‘Burg

Once the word spread, the popularity grew along with The Shrimp Store. In 1997, The Shrimp Store expanded to accommodate the crowds. If you’re looking for a resplendent paradise to enjoy some fried shrimp, clam strips, or a cold one, this is your spot. There’s ample outdoor seating, and to-go options are of course available too.

New visitors will definitely want to indulge in the Florida crab croquettes, the hushpuppies and of course the smoked fish spread. Buttermilk battered fried mushrooms, and fried catfish also feature here.

It’s a no frills, old school St. Pete joint.
