My husband and I went to the Fish Shack after reading great reviews. It was everything we expected and more. Wow - $2 beers and my garlic shrimp with rice and my husband's blackened, grilled Mahi Mahi, scallops and shrimp platter was the best ever. Salads were good too. Prices are reasonable for what you get and service was great... More

I had clam chowder, fried oysters, and a fried grouper sandwich. The chowder was very smooth with the right blend of ingredients, very hearty. The fried oysters were sweet, juicy and very light. My sandwich had a perfect sized fillet and again breaded perfectly, all came out nice and hot. The whole meal was very fresh.

Loved the Fish Shack! We had a hard time finding it but it was worth it. The food was fantastic. The place is VERY small so you will have to wait but it's worth it. Take the time to find this & enjoy. Our best meal in Pompano Beach.

We hit Fish Shack at 3:30, since we had had no lunch. Thank goodness. Got an appetizer of fried oysters - a tad pricey, but extremely good, and lightly fried. Mom had fried combo with cod, clams and shrimp. Shared most - all was great, esp. the clams ! I had scallops, with fries and cole slaw. THE tenderest scallops... More

Thanks again, to TripAdvisor for a perfect suggestion for a new dining experience. We completely enjoyed the casual seafood dinner at the understated Fish Shack! It is presently rated # 3 out of over 250 restaurants in Pompano beach, only trailing behind a donut and ice cream shops! Menu is limited with a variety of fish, shrimp, and two daily... More

My wife and I were staying in nearby Deerfield Beach and were looking to explore other eateries beyond Deerfield. We saw this one in TripAdvisor and gave it a shot. Very glad we did. Great Place! Wonderful, fresh seafood at very good prices! We shared the fried combo (shrimp, cod and clam strips) and a basket of fried mahi fingers.... More

If fresh fish is your thing in a real down home basic atmosphere, then you must try the Fish Shack. There is absolutely nothing fancy about it but the food is worth the wait to get a seat anywhere in this small store front restaurant. The food is delicious and staff is friendly and efficient. The cracked conch is my... More

We (my husband and I) are continually amazed by TripAdvisor. Who would search out a little place like this when there are all these ads in magazines and newspapers and the hoopla of being The Best of Something (Ft. Lauderdale in this case). We would! And even though we got lost, we found it and were totally amazed. It was... More

Came back to visit The Fish Shack again while visiting FL after one year. Got there around 11:15 am on a Friday and sure enough, within about 20 minutes, the place had a waiting line. Same great food and service. One of the best deals for fresh seafood in the area. Highly suggest for great seafood.

Don't let the outside look of this place fool you. It's a storefront in a run-down strip center. The food is wonderful!! Broiled, grilled, or fried, the fish is great. We got there at 6 on a Tuesday night and still had to wait outside for 40 minutes because the place only seats 20 people. Worth the wait.
