Best seafood on the beach

The shrimp is slightly breaded and delicous! Their summer salad taste like chunky Gazpacho - so refreshing. We ordered carry out and had our dinner at our small "hole in the wall" at the beach.

Once again a local told us we should try this restaurant. It's just a small place with outdoor eating only but WOW... we had lunch here and my wife had the grouper bites basket and I had the shrimp basket. The flavor was excellent. It was FRESH and Prices are great. We will definitely eat here again and HIGHLY RECOMMEND... More

We saw that they were open as their hours are different now that the summer season is ending. The fish/shrimp tacos were really good. I couldn't finish them there was so much in them. Summer salad was nice and light. Cajon wrap was nice and spicy and my son loved his hush puppies and chicken. We played a little corn... More

Thinking about selling my house and moving closer so I can eat there more often. Would put them up against any seafood restaurant in the area.

Decided to walk down to the Shark Shack for dinner last night. I will say that their hours of operation are somewhat limited and strange so check before you go. The weather was nice so we wanted outdoor dining which is the only option at the Shack. The girl working the window was nice and even directed us to the... More

We stopped in on Tuesday to see if they were still open for business and actually spoke with the owner. He informed us that they would be opening at 11:00 on Wednesday. It was very disappointing to see that they were not open. There were several other families in the same situation as well. On the bright side, we went... More

The staff was very short with us. The sign said they closed at two but the locked up at 1:54 and the staff disappeared. They have 4 tables and a bar with 9 barstools all outside, this is the only seating. There was a terrible ant problem. We ordered at a window & served & cleaned up after ourselves. Food... More

Love the atmosphere and use to like the food; however, the last visit was disappointing. The fried food was ready fast (yes, too fast)! The french fries, fried shrimp, and grouper bits had been sitting under a heat lamp. Fried food is only good when you get it right out of the fryer. The service and atmosphere are still great...

Really great place to have lunch! Quality & quantity of food hard to beat. Plus it's fun sitting outside at the picnic tables.
