As a boy, Richard Roush spent his summers cruising the waters of Bayou La Batre aboard his grandfather's shrimp boat, learning skills that would help him work his way through college. Later, he turned his sights inland, learning the restaurant trade and then opening his own oyster plant. He sold his seafood business in 2008 — retiring after 25 years — but was drawn back in by the chance to combine his twin loves of seafood and restauranteuring. The result is The Wacky Shrimp, a family-owned seafood restaurant in Daphne where cooks sizzle up steaming platters of the highest quality shrimp, oysters, and fish the Gulf Coast has to offer. Each meal comes cooked to order, ensuring that it's as fresh as possible when it arrives at your table. The Wacky Shrimp focuses on the family dining experience, catering to all budgets. For children there are Wacky Kids Meals, which include popcorn shrimp, chicken, fish, or grilled cheese.
