Best seafood in Florida

I found out about this great restaurant from a friend of mine Tim. We went there for lunch Tuesday and everything was amazing. This has to be the best seafood in Florida. The seafood comes in fresh daily and is the best I've ever had. We will be there for lunch every day this week until we return... read more

Arrived in Pompano Beach Monday went to the Fish Shack Tuesday for early lunch. As always the owner meets you at the door and makes you feel very welcome. Had the grilled seafood combo which is out of this world. Also had the cracked conch and the buffalo shrimp which are most excellent. If you love seafood as I do... More

This place is a little off the beaten path, in a partially abandoned little strip center in Pompano. But apparently it is not a secret to the locals. If you arrive after 4 p.m., prepare for a long wait, outside, as the restaurant is TINY! Inside, delicious seafood dishes are served on thin wood plates, for less than one would... More

I have lived in South Florida for over 35 years and how have I missed this gem???? Went for the first time a few days ago and at first didn't think it was going to be much...I was so happy to be proven wrong!! It's a little hole in the wall with only about 20 seats including a dining counter.... More

On the other hand the food inside was phenomenally good and the service was excellent. I had steamed clams which may have been the best and freshest I have ever had. I also had grilled grouper platter with a salad. I was not expecting much, but the food was fresh and perfectly prepared and the surprise factor was amazing. This... More

We found this place because of the trip advisor reviews and it was totally amazing! Everything we had from the shrimp and scallop burger to the fish to the perfectly cooked scallops were amazing! Be prepared to wait as it is a small place.....bring your chairs and a cooler of beer/drinks as the parking lot is filled with tailgaters waiting... More

The Grouper Dinner is awesome and a great value at $13.95 for a large 8 to 10 oz piece of Grouper done anyway you want, served with your choice of two sides. I get mine grilled with rice and slaw. After trying this place once, I keep returning to try everything on the menu, and so far it's all real,... More

The Fish Shack is one small room with a tiny bar that serves beer and wine and has a brisk take-out business conducted at the bar. A few outdoor chairs are used by guests for long wait times. The chairs are set on sidewalk of small parking lot the restaurant shares with a few stores. Parking is a challenge;the street... More

Phoned in 2 orders at 3pm on a Friday, it was ready for pick up in 15 minutes. Steamed shrimp in garlic butter was perfect, my friend had grouper sandwich, also delicious. Smoked fish dip was also excellent. Don't think I'd eat there, it's a dump in a sketchy locale, but order for pickup I will do again
