Killer Shrimp started out as a Michaels’ family legacy and has grown into one of the longest standing restaurant success stories in Los Angeles. Our story takes you from counter-culture icon and 60’s rocker Lee Michaels inventing the dish for his family, to making it for hungry Venice neighbors, on to a tiny, untested restaurant concept with one dish and one desert, and all the way to the Killer Shrimp our customers know and love today.
Family owned and operated since 1988, Killer Shrimp not only occupies a much larger menu with more than one option, but it has traded a view of the parking lot for one of Marina Del Rey’s best waterfront views. The only things that haven’t changed are our secret original recipe spices, our commitment to only serving the freshest seafood available, and how much we love our loyal clientele. (No, you’ll never guess the secret ingredients but keep asking!)
As we come close to celebrating 35 years in business, we don’t just think about how our family has grown over the years, we think about yours. The birthdays, the engagements, the baby showers, the bar mitvahs, the graduation parties, the quincenieras and all the other events you’ve shared with us over the last three decades. It’s an honor to make the food you love and create the space for your family to be with ours.
Come for a visit and say ‘Cheers!’ to another 35 years…
