After hearing about how good this place is for its food we decided to stop in mid afternoon for a bite to eat. The area looked a bit sketchy as does the front of the building but onward we went. We was greeted by a friendly lady who showed us the menu and explained a few items we had questions... More

I really enjoyed my meal! My fiancée did not. He had the mahi mahi it did not have flavor. people came up to us in a car outside trying to sell us jewelry!!!! Not worth going around the sketchy environment!

Best thing was the conch strips as an appetizer. Think fried clams or calamari in terms of preparation. The fish and shrimp were good but not exceptional. The dipping sauce with the conch, cocktail sauce and tartar did not have much personality. Not a thing wrong with anything we had but I'd expect more for a $50 meal in a... More

Parking can be difficult and seating for 20 only. Prepare to sit at counter. Fried fish was good but ordinary - go for the broiled - you get a better idea of the good food. Very friendly and heavy take out business. 2 people $40. but we had 2 beers and took home some delicious wings.

OMG! OUTSTANDING! Don't let the location OR the appearance of the outside of this establishment fool you! The Fish Shack has some of the best fresh fish I have ever had. This place is so fresh, they don't have a freezer and they often run out of popular fish types. Very small seating area and small bar make it tough... More

First off, if you want to be entertained, you need to find another place to eat. That said, if you want off the boat fresh seafood served by a friendly staff at a great price, this is the place for you. Try the shrimp & scallop fritters for an app that has no fillers and any fish platter. Some of... More

OK, my title is self serving, I don't want you to go here so the wait for a table will be shorter for me. If you want great fish, served with no frills and at a great price, this is the place for you. We stumbled on the Fish Shack while driving around hungry and I know we'll be back.... More

This place is amazing! We were in pompano for a week and we went here twice. It is a small restaurant off one of the main drags. If there is a wait, wait, period. Grab a beer or a glass of wine when you give them your name and chill outside. Do not be deterred by the location! The head... More
