“A little pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

This is a small restaurant with good po boys. The po boys are good but pricey. If you go ask about the daily specials or the burgers.

“Great food!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2011

I am a regular at shempy's, The place is small and get crowded quickly but the food is excellent!. The fried portobello mushrooms are great and if I'm not too stuffed they make a bread pudding that is great as well! The steaks are a little high priced but it is very good and its a huge slab of meat!

“I'll go back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2010

I recently ate lunch there with a couple of friends. We all agreed that the food was very good. But we got there around 1:00 and even though most of the tables were empty, they hadn't had time to clean them up, so we had to wait for one to be cleaned. However, the food was good, great onion rings, and good service. I will go back and so will my friends.

“Bring our own Booze”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2010

We had some burgers here as we got into town. Pretty good. They also have some tasty onion rings. They don't serve liquor. But just bring your own cooler.

“Schempy's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2009

You will have to ask a local where this is, but if you like great fried shrimp, catfish, and hush puppies then make sure you check out Schempy's. Referred by another diner, when we were actually at the Boiling Pot one night asking about local diners.
I have never been a fan of catfish, but this place knows how to fry them up! Small place, clean, great service, great food.
We will return and with friends!
