Our Story

In November 2016, our 4 Co-Founders, June + Dan and Anna + Jeremy, opened Shrimp Daddy at Smorgasburg LA inspired by their travels to Hawaii. Shrimp Daddy was born through their love of food, community, and each other.

 We created Shrimp Daddy to offer you our unique take on island flavors. Each bite is meant to transport you to where we feel most at home- on the beach with salty hair, sandy toes, and full bellies surrounded by old and new friends. The pineapple is a symbol of hospitality and we cannot wait to welcome you into our family. Our Hawaiian-style garlic butter shrimp is cooked and served with the shell and tail on to lock in all the flavors and juices. We encourage all our customers to try our shrimp whole like how we eat it in Hawaii- shell, tail, and all. Our signature garlic butter sauce will have you coming back for more.
