Great lunch

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

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...

the place Is terrible. Rude staff. Weird inconsistent hours. I arrived around 6:30, ordered food for the family, it was ready around 6:50. I went to get refills around 6:55, and a worker was steadily complaining about customers as she slammed the shutters to the windows closed. I finally got another worker to refill our drinks for us. I overheard... More

I too was there when they closed on July 4th. This place is only open for lunch but will stay open until and undetermined hour depending on how many folks are coming in. If the stream of traffic does not end, when do you call your day done? Get over yourself Kernersville - this place is awesome! Finally found the... More

Eat outside on picnic tables when the temperature is in the 90's, loud canned music blaring, sharing tables with strangers, wind blowing your napkins away,etc. Somehow it all works! Tasty food (very large portions) and low prices complete this experience to make it memorable! Be sure to stick around for the raffle drawing!

the good... The food was hot,fresh, and fast. The bad... "Service" was terrible. I tried the Shark Shack based on the reviews from this site. Hopefully someone will read this review and stay away from this establishment. The attitude of indifference from the staff that was working July the fourth around closing time was inexcusable. I have never seen someone... More

If they have the seafood tacos, get them! Holy goodness! Fresh tuna, shrimp, and salmon blackened to perfection! They do not skimp on the amount of meat. Typically, I get the blackened grouper sandwich and it's good as well. Fries are yummy....not a fan of the pasta salad. It is literally a shack but do not let that fool you!

Aptly named, fun place to get North Carolina seafood. We ordered takeout: the grouper sandwich and a salad with fried shrimp. Both were excellent and we could have split either one and had plenty for both of us. Hours are a little flexible. They open for lunch and stay open until it gets too hot in the kitchen when they...
