Read good reviews on this place and decided to give it a try. There is limited seating and if you blink you may miss the place. Fortunately, we got there at a time when the place was empty with no wait. Within 10 minutes it was standing room only. This definitely must be a place for the locals because we... More

We came across the Fish Shack on restaurant reviews and were anxious to be"like the locals" - it is indeed a very small place on a side street in the most unlikely strip mall in Pompano. however- do not judge but rather ask the diners who exit the restaurant amidst hose who have waited an hour or more!! The restaurant... More

Don't let the size of the restaurant fool you. Yes there is often a wait for a table at this neighborhood hot spot. The reason is becuase the owner Mike works long hours in the kitchen providing consistently delicious food with attention to every plate that is served. We eat here quite often. I love the lobster bisque, blackened or... More

There is no question that the freshest seafood is in the Fish Shack in Pompano Beach Florida. If you are looking for a snooty, fish restaurant with mediocre quality and average service, please feel free to go to many of the chains like Houston's and wait an hour for what is mediocre quality at best. The Fish Shack is a... More

Exceptional fresh fish. Grilled yellow find sandwich special. Super good. Very reasonably-priced. First time I have had conch. The place is small and friendly. Expect a small wait but totally worth it.

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
