We had arrived in AB after a seven hour drive and planned to go somewhere else for dinner, but that particular place was closed up for the day, so I suggested we try Shark Shack. Thank goodness the first place was closed!! We arrived at Shark Shack, apparently right before they were going to close up for a couple of... More

Always have loved the Buffalo Shrimp! Tasty, spicy, hot and enough for a meal or share as an appetizer. Grouper sandwich and everything else I tried also good. Outdoors- so can be warm and if no breeze very warm. But the buffalo shrimp.... Good.

Before visiting Atlantic Beach I read about Shark Shack on Tripadvisor and knew I wanted to eat there. We stayed at a motel right down the road and every time we drove by, Shark Shack was closed. I didn't see an hours of operation sign so we called and found out dinner is served 5:30-7:30. We didn't ask about lunch.... More

My girlfriend and I both had good solid seafood. The fried foods we not too heavily fried and the seafood tasted fresh. Asked if they did buffalo shrimp and they said they could make it special and it was phenomenal. Grouper bites and blackened maji sandwich were also delicious. Atmosphere could be a bit better but only real complaint. Well... More

Stopped here for lunch as we had our dog with us. Food was as described - fast and fried! Had a grass area to eat in with dog which was nice. Could have done with a little cleaning up but it suits the purpose.

Needed to grab a quick lunch before driving back home. Fish wrap was excellent as was the shrimp basket and hush puppies. You sit outside and its a bit rustic but good no frills lunch when youre in a hurry.

My wife was craving seafood for lunch and the Shark Shack was the closest seafood restaurant for takeout. We were impressed. The grouper and shrimp basket with fries was tasty. We plan to visit the Shark Shack again!

This place advertises itself as a beach fast food experience and that is what it is. You order at a window and they call you when the food is ready. It is not as fast as McDonalds, but pretty quick. Prices are nowhere near Mickey D's, but the food is way better. Hush Puppies were excellent. Plenty of food with... More

In numerous past visits the food/experience has been outstanding. In the past 4 day we have been here twice and the food has been marginal, at best. The portions are noticeably smaller. The grouper sandwich was thin and we wonder if it was actually grouper.
