The Sea Chicken Shack is a fast-food restaurant that appeared in the episode "The Masterpiece." It is major competition to the Krusty Krab, like the Kelp Shake stores were in the episode "Best Frenemies," and like the Chum Bucket is. It is owned by Mr. Sea Chicken. It could be a parody of KFC or the Chick-a-Filla, so Mr. Sea Chicken would most likely be a parody of Colonel Sanders, who is the founder of KFC, or Samuel Truett Cathy, who is the founder of Chick-a-Filla.
The Sea Chicken Shack looks like an old building with the restaurant's name on a sign surrounded by flashing lights on top of it. Inside, it is pretty empty. There are metal tables and rotting wood platforms as chairs for diners.
At the order counter, it is simply a large barrier with a computer and cashier. A pull-down sign says the "No headbands" policy. SpongeBob criticized a bad safety rating and said it smelled like "a tuna bathed in algae after running a marathon."
This gave Mr. Krabs the idea to let Squidward construct Krabs himself for the general public to use (especially the kids). After SpongeBob was crushed in the test run, Mr. Krabs ended the episode where he was painted gold and used as the statue children played on.
Role in the series
SpongeBob was sent onto a spy mission to gather intel on this restaurant. When he stood in line, SpongeBob was thrown out of the restaurant since the policy states no headbands. After being evicted from the restaurant, SpongeBob was forced to climb the "Sea Chicken" statue which was made for children to climb.
