Great fresh food with friendly staff

Only one complaint, this place is small and not extravagant as far as aesthetics, but the food is excellent! Is definitely worth a visit and wait time unless you get lucky. Get there when they open and the wait may not be as long. Enjoy!

The place is really, really hidden. The pace is really, really small. Having said that: the food is REALLY REALLY GOOD! Had the Buffalo Shrimp and the Yellow Fin Tuna (seared). Both were perfect. Don't expect fancy. Expect unpretentious back porch really good food. Will return because I only have one stomach. Will recommend because it is absolutely worth it.

The restaurant is in a tiny old strip mall well hidden off the 1. We had a long wait (but we're sure it's because it was right before a holiday) but it was worth it! They had hogfish which is a treat that I've only had in Florida. This is a bare bones basic place, no frills, the seats and... More

We ate here a couple of years ago and made a return visit the other day! Was as good as we remembered! Great food, great service, great people, great place! Be prepared to wait or go at an odd time as the place is very small with only a few tables and a bar.

Definitely worth the wait to get seated. Great atmosphere and the food was hit and fresh. I plan on coming back here the next time I'm in town. Service was fun and excellent. If tou're looking for good food for a great price, this is your place!

Took the advice of reviews and got take-out from the Fish Shack. Would not have wanted to eat there, as it was super crowded. Our first time trying conch and it was fantastic. Would definitely order from there again.

Did our weekend Trip Advisor review and went here for dinner and was not disappointed. Had to wait for a table since there are only 5 in the restaurant (with a bar to sit at as well) but it was worth the wait. Ended up getting a bottle of wine for less than $20 and waited for our table outside... More

As others have stated it is very small and not the easiest place to find. I had read the all the reviews and decided I wanted to go. Took the advice about arriving about 3:00P.M. and that was definitely a plus. My husband and I ordered separate things so we could each try a little of most things. Our food... More

This place is where the locals go and for good reason. The seating is very limited and I have heard of long lines but when we went at 3:30 business was brisk but no lines. We sat at the bar and our server/bartender was very friendly and efficient. I don't think I have ever had better clam chowder or grilled... More
