Looking for an authentic food experience while visiting the South? Look no further than The Skrimp Shack in Williamsburg, Virginia.

The Skrimp Shack (Virginia)

One of my best and fail-safe tips of finding solid places to eat while traveling is to ask the locals where THEY eat, NOT where they send tourists. We’ve used this successfully while in Nashville, Wilmington, Canada, Massachusetts, and countless other places and it’s the best way to find good local food at reasonable prices without the bonus of tourist crowds.

And that’s exactly how we discovered The Skrimp Shack. I was talking with a hotel front desk clerk (and, surprisingly, not from the hotel where we were actually staying), and she gave me several excellent restaurant recommendations during our Spring trip to Virginia. She introduced us to Craft 31, and also The Skrimp Shack.

Before we left the area, I wanted to make sure we had a chance to chow down on some authentic Southern food, namely hush puppies and collard greens, and this place fit the bill.

Letter to My Son – Happy 16th Birthday!

August 6, 2018

I’m sure I will say this until the end of time, but man, the years are going by so quickly. I cannot believe that I have a SIXTEEN YEAR OLD. Like, how is that even possible? It reminds me of that popular parenting quote, “The days are long, but the years are short.” And here […]
