"There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich.....", said Bubba in the Academy Award winning 1994 film Forest Gump.

At Duval's we definitely don't offer that many different varieties of shrimp on the menu but we will say this, WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT OUR SHRIMP!  

We take great pride in providing our patrons with the tastiest and highest quality of seafood that they can experience when dining at Duval's.  In order to ensure that we were providing our guests the tastiest shrimp on the market, we have done three separate taste tests on a quest to find the best shrimp! 

In the three taste tests that were conducted, over 12 different varieties of shrimp were tested by more than 20 people.  It was a unanimous decision!  Every single person tested selected the same variety of shrimp.

The verdict was in, the Vietnamese Tiger Shrimp were voted #1.  Every taste tester said they had better flavor, texture, and overall they were more enjoyable than all of the other types of shrimp that were tested!


For over 2 1/2 years we have been serving the tiger shrimp as one of the core staples of our downtown Sarasota seafood menu.  We serve them grilled, sauteed, blackened, fried and various other styles.  

Duval's customers hands down favorite way to enjoy these plump delicious shrimp is via the Duval's Signature Shrimp Po' Boy Sandwich.  

From the moment we opened our doors on Main Street, the Shrimp Po' Boy has been the #1 selling menu item at lunch(and very popular at dinner too.)

So we ask: Are you serious about your Seafood?

If you seriously enjoy diving into the tastiest shrimp Sarasota has to offer, stop into Duval's for lunch or dinner and dig into to our succulent shrimp!
