Cod Sandwich – Fourth Street Shrimp Store

I have been to the Fourth Street Shrimp Store in St. Petersburg countless times over the years. I always feel welcome, and I love the fun, laid-back Florida decor. The prices are reasonable, the seafood is fresh, the service is crazy fast, and the atmosphere…unique (I personally love the walls bedecked with license plates and the hanging flamingo stool!!) I used to bring a book in here and enjoy lunch back in my single gal days. I am so happy to have a life-long lunch partner now!
The Express Lunch Specials are available daily from 11-3 (even the weekends!) The Fried Clam Strip and Shrimp basket was bountiful. We opted for the fries, and also added on a side of cole slaw. Bonus points for the tartar sauce, ketchup, and cocktail sauces being readily available at each table. I am a big-time dipper, I like to be in charge of my own condiment destiny.

I ordered the Cod Sandwich (fried) with a cup of clam chowder. You may also choose to have your fish blackened or broiled. The chowder was delicious; the sandwich was huge and came on a freshly baked bun with lettuce and tomato. (Enter more of that table-ready tartar sauce; I require a sandwich glue!)

Both specials were $7.99. Leave your fancy-pants at home and enjoy a fast, fresh seafood bite at Fourth Street Shrimp Store.
