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!

Outside venue with a good selection of sandwiches and specials. Limited outside seating. It would be great if there was an outside bar. Beer available. Excellent specials, especially the fish tacos. Nice alternative when you are looking for a quick lunch or dinner. Seasonal hours.

We wanted a quick and tasty supper. We found just that at The Shark Shack. A simple menu was offered by a friendly guy. We ordered fish tacos and a grouper fillet. It was ready in a matter of minutes. We ate outside at a picnic table that was covered by an umbrella. If you wanted condiments, you served yourself... More

Best blackened grouper sandwich I have had in 15 years. Price is great, portions the same. $10 for a full meal with drink, can't beat it. Wish they were open year round. I'll be back timorrow. I just ordered a second sandwich togo. Ethan

Huge hamburger was awesome. The grouper sandwich was enormous and very tasty. The French fries tasted like McDonald's fries. The place is very beachy with really friendly hosts and a cute yard to eat and play in. They welcome dogs with a huge bowl of water. A great place for a casual dinner

Really great seafood shack with really relaxed atmosphere, perfect for the beach!! Highly recommend the Grouper Sandwiches. And be sure to try whatever the catch of the day special might be. The Buffalo Grouper Bites were great!!! Be prepared to sit outside at a picnic table and paper towels for napkins. Perfect stop coming off the beach for lunch. Friendly... More

Really yummy fried seafood. We had the taco's and the grouper bites and they were very good. The outdoor seating is nice, especially on a beautiful night. The hushpuppies were my favorite on the island. I would totally come back.
