Best fish I have ever had

My daughter brought me to this restaurant off the beaten path. This restaurant is very small with a few tables and fills up for lunch fast. It is well worth the wait. Prices are comparable. Food is excellent. If you like a good fish fry this is a must.

An great culinary establish (20 seats) for fulfilling your "fresh fish" desires. ~ Our party had for appetizers ~ the Shrimp and Scallops Fritters and Fried Calms. Both where perfectly cooked with a great batter and flavoring ~ The entrees where deep fried Hog Snapper, Cracked Conch and Fish'n Chips. Enough to for all to sample a taste of each... More

The restaurant is located off a main street in back of a convenience store and next to private homes. It's very small with only 4 or 5 tables and a counter that can seat 8. The food was fantastic. The prices were very reasonable. The staff was very friendly and the service was very fast. They had a good variety... More

The Fish Shack is just that.....a small shack with FRESH fish. Limited menu allows the owner to serve no item that is not fresh. We love the cracked Conch basket and get it to go for an appetizer many nights. Only about 6 seats at the counter and 6 tables total

The fish here is super fresh, service friendly and speedy, only buts for me is the small size of the place means few seats so long waits when you can park. But worth it if yopu can get in.

I found the Fish Shack through TripAdvisor. It sounded like a very casual place but the fish was supposed to be great. Upon arriving at the strip mall, I immediately wanted to turn around and "run". But, I know better than to judge a book by it's cover. So, we took our chances. Yes, we did have to wait (there... More

The name says it all. The "fish shack" is a fair name because if you're looking for ambience and fancy shmancy, you're in the wrong place. However, the way they cook fish there is what I call perfection. Friendly staff and fair prices. There's almost always a wait so be ready for that. Two choices of beer, Bud and Bud... More

Fish Shack is one of those hard to find but you can't miss kind of places! The best freshest fish of any place in South Florida cooked perfectly and priced accordingly. Don't forget to try the conch!

Its just a whole in the wall with small tables and chairs BUT some of the BEST seafood I have ever had. VERY hard to find, its well hidden down an alley-like road. Here is a tip for finding it from US-1... Its BEHIND the BP gas station that's plain to see from US-1. Well worth the find. The fried... More
