Don't let the location fool you

The location is deceiving but the food is great. We had the shrimp and scallop fritter appetizer. Very good. Steamed shrimp and grouper were great. Staff is super nice too. WE got lucky and walked in with one table open for the 3 of us. It is very small so be prepared to wait but tables seemed to... read more

We came for lunch so we could the long wait at dinner. This has been my favorite florida meal all week. Elisa is an excellent waitress/hostess. She is friendly and works hard to make sure her patrons are happy. Don't normally drink Budweiser but it was $2 and went well with lunch. The oysters were fresh and huge. The conch... More

This has to be some of the best seafood I've had in south Florida. Don't let the building fool you. It's small and worth the wait. We ate their a couple times and not disappointed. The shrimp and scallop appetizer's were full of seafood not bater

Very small (only seats 20) in a little strip mall off the main drag. Well worth looking for. Outstanding seafood with large portions. Conch app is a meal in itself. Everything is fresh and cooked just right. Only serve beer (Bud). No reservations so come early and be prepared to wait a little but so worth it. Closes at 9... More

Love this small local restaurant. The food tastes very fresh, the cracked conch is the best and the fresh catch is always a winner, any way you would like it! You may have a wait, but well worth it.

We always go to the Fish Shack when we are in Florida. It's very small; seats only 20 - 25 and the waiting room is outside. But the food is very good. Fresh fish, well prepared, and at a very reasonable price. Don't ignore this place just because of the strip mall location.

This restaurant is simply awesome. All of the seafood is fresh and reasonably priced. It is very small and not easy to find . Every time we have been there we had to wait as it is small and space is limited but the wait is well worth it.

It is located in a scary looking shack of a plaza,, but the food is fantastic. We usually get takeout, because it is small inside and seating is very limited. If you like great, fresh seafood without a large price tag this is the place to go.

It may be hard to find and look like a whole in the wall but the place has a super waitress, super food and you will want to go back!

This was mine and my wife's first visit here and we seriously felt like we were in The Keys. The atmosphere and the fresh seafood was amazing! There was about a 30 minute wait due to the smallness of the restaurant but the wait was well worth it. The only problem is that it's a little hard to find but... More
