Tucked inside a nondescript strip mall along Kirkman Road near Orlando’s MetroWest area, Stonington’s Fried Shrimp is a simple, quick and easy place to grab not only fried shrimp but also crab cakes, catfish, oysters, and fried chicken.
I recently stopped in for lunch and was surprised by the warm and friendly greeting of our cashier/server. She was truly the epitome of southern hospitality, manning the register and taking orders at the counter. It was a very welcome sight to see and I felt quite at home.
The fried shrimp is the main attraction here at Stonington’s and I ordered two sides to accompany it: shoestring onion rings and 6 cheese baked macaroni. The shrimp was fried quite delicately and with a wonderfully seasoned and light batter. Often times when seafood is fried the taste is lost in all the grease, but it was different here and definitely a plus. The 6 cheese baked macaroni was also very delicious, with a baked crumb topping that went very well with the macaroni and cheese blend.
Overall, I would go to Stonington’s again for their excellent fried shrimp as well as sides and service. All in all, quite possibly the best fried shrimp place in Orlando
