Down old highway A1A in Palm Coast, you will find a cozy place known as 'The Hammock' of the Palm Coast. There, nestled beneath large oak trees on a barrier island is a little out of the way place we call 'The Shack'.. Or JT's Seafood Shack! Friendly, attentive service and a casual atmosphere make JT's a favorite for locals and for those just passing through. No pretense, just good Florida Fish Camp style eatin'. This means large helpings of our freshly caught Shrimp and Crab which come in our World Famous (and traditional-styled) Crab Pots and Shrimp Pots. Pair that with one of our 12 ounce Rib Eye, Crab Cakes, Baby Back Ribs or Southwestern Chicken and you've got yourself a real meal. Our other specialties and local favorites include our large variety of Burgers, Sandwiches/Wraps, and Fish Tacos. The 'Shack', With its tin roof and wood doors features only fresh Oysters and Shrimp, Fish and Crab Cakes- all cooked to your liking. Our creative chefs have a license to delight. Our inventive menu puts on display all the best cuisine of the Atlantic Coastal Plain through the Florida Pan Handle. It's the perfect place for your lunch getaway and for a dining out for dinner! Nobody beats our generous daily 3-6pm Happy Hour. Looking for a casual place to eat and a guaranteed treat? Come on down to The Shack... We'll have ya at JT's Seafood Shack!

Great local seafood place

Authentic local Florida bar/fish house restaurant. Very good fried shrimp. The shrimp boil is pretty good, too, and enough for two. Great service, casual atmosphere. The bar is top notch and the bartender is friendly and runs a tight ship. Appears to be a favorite hangout for the locals.

So, lots of cars outside every time we passed made us think this was a place we should not miss. Wish we had! I think the cars belong to the people who are there enjoying the large selection of draft beers and the comraderie. It is NOT because of the food.

Have eaten here many times over the years but sadly JT's seem to be on the decline. It is still good but really just average and the meals are much more variable than in the past. Try to get there for the lunch specials: very good values. They make a fantastic salad with grilled salmon. The prices have gone up... More

Finally decided to give JT's a try. Laid back atmosphere. Décor reminded me of seafood restaurants around South Carolina's Low Country. However, service and food not near as good. Our server spent his time hanging out at the bar. We had to ask another server to get his attention several times. The food arrived timely, but it was too greasy... More

A laid-back and authentic seafood shack (with excellent drinks) is exactly what we're going for! It's really awesome that you're a fan of us. We are a favorite for the locals -- but we welcome out-of-towners, as well! Thanks for the review. Thanks, John Doering, Owner More

I was really surprised by the easy going nature of a place that has been around for along time. Good food and great service. I wish I could remember the name of our perky, effervescent 20 year old server. We enjoyed the calamari app and asked if we could have more of the kale appetizer which she brought to us... More

We went for lunch and from other reviews had taken notice of the cheese steak sub. It was gigantic and delicious. The salads at another table looked great.

My husband and I have stopped at JT's several times now on our way home from St. Augustine or Hammock beach. The food is fresh and delicious. The Hush puppies are terrific! This past visit was the first with our toddler son, and the staff was so attentive and friendly. We had a great experience!

We stopped here on a whim for one of our last meals in town. It was close the condo and seemed to have good reviews. When we arrived at 7, the place was packed. We asked some locals who were waiting how long it would be and they said it was at about 30 minutes of wait time but it... More

The dining room is not all that big considering how popular (and sometimes crowded) this restaurant can get, but that is a testament to it's great seafood.
