I can exclusively report to you that Killer Shrimp Restaurant and Bar, located next to the Marina Del Rey harbor in southern California for more than two decades, will be invading the South Coast this June at 416 State Street in downtown Santa Barbara, the former home of Baja Sharkeez.
Their signature dish “The Original Killer Shrimp” is prepared using a spicy sauce that is simmered for 10 hours. When your order is placed the shrimp are added to the sauce and cooked quickly then served in a variety of ways ($12-$17) including with French bread, “shelled” with French bread, over rice, over Angel Hair pasta, on a sandwich and with Mac and Cheese. Other entrees ($11 – $24) include filet mignon with peppercorn sauce, New York steak, pan-roasted chicken breast, pan-roasted bone-in pork chop, crab cakes, Atlantic salmon, scallops, fried shrimp, beer battered fish & chips and a daily seafood special. You can add grilled lobster tail to any entrée. Appetizers, soups, salads, desserts and a variety of sides are also available.
Killer Shrimp will have large flat-screen TVs and a full bar that serves everything from 12-tap beers on draft, domestic and imported bottled beers, fine wine by the bottle or glass and specialty drinks made with fresh juices. The restaurant is applying for an entertainment permit for dancing.
The late night eatery will be open 11:30 a.m. – midnight Sunday through Wednesday and 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. A late night happy hour will be available daily from 10 p.m. – midnight.
