Fresh Tuna!

The best grilled tuna accented with black and white sesame seeds that I've had in years! Yum--can't wait to taste the grouper tomorrow!

The Shark Shack has the best food. It is cooked to order and they use all fresh fish. We love it. They also have a play area for kids which really helps all those of us with an unruly toddler. It is fenced in so the kids can play while you enjoy a meal.

My wife and I were in Atlantic Beach this past weekend and stopped into Shark Shack. Their special of the day was a Seafood Taco with Blackened Tuna and Shrimp with a Cilantro Lime sauce drizzled over it. Wow! It was incredible. The food was great as well as the service. Quick and with a smile. We will be back!

My family and I own a home in Atlantic Beach. We frequent the beach quite often. We were so delighted to see Shark Shack open earlier then the previous years. It's been a long winter without the " cooked to perfection" Grouper Bites and homemade sauces not to the mention the Oysters and Seafood Tacos!! Just Yum!! The Pasta salad... More

We found this shack last year and could not get enough of the most amazing Grouper (blackened and grilled) that we ever ate. Yes, they didn't accept credit cards, but it was always well worth scraping up the cash. This year (March 2015) we were thrilled to find them opened and couldn't wait to dig in again. The owner was... More

We have enjoyed the food from The Shark Shack for several years. Their shrimp burgers, grouper bites are really good. The problem is that they don't adhere to any set schedule, so you never know when they are going to be open. This is compounded by the fact that they don't have a phone, so you can't even call to...

Love the outside picnic eating atmosphere. Get your condiments from a cooler. One meal basket easily feeds two people. Yes, it seems expensive but you get a lot of food!

Stopped by on a weekend in October. It was only open for a few hours over lunch, so we were glad we stopped. Everyone seemed to like the fish tacos, so that is what we ordered. The two of us could easily have shared one basket, there was so much food. The taco part was minimal, some cheese and lettuce,... More

Sit outside on the picnic tables and play corn hole while you wait. Tacos are the best. Grouper tastes like it was just caught. Hush puppies, yum yum!
