Don't judge a book by its cover

Scary to look at from the outside and a little tough to find, unless you have a gps. It is very small and a line to get in but it moves very quickly. We had steamed shrimp with old bay seasoning and the shrimp and scallop fritters for appetizers. The old bay shrimp were great and done... read more

Although I'm reviewing this on Trip Advisor, you'd almost have to be a local to want to go to this place. It's not that easy to find. It's not that easy to get a parking spot. It's not that easy to get a table. It's that small. And then the food isn't fancy. No unusual preparation choices of unusual ingredients,... More

Me and my husband stopped at the fish shack on our way home from our honeymoon. The reviews were really good so we decided to go. The wait was 30 mins but it was so worth it. The staff was friendly and the food came out fast. We're definitely going back on our next trip to Florida!!!

Best oysters I've ever eaten. Just great sea food. Because of previous reviews I arrived at 3 PM. Just one table left. Quick service. Like Arnold , I'll be back.

Small and a a bit hard to find. Use a map app. But very worth it. Nice variety and very good fresh sea food. This is a frequent stop.

This is a small family owned restaurant in a strip mall. Nothing fancy but food is to die for. Be prepared to wait as the place is so small (about 5 tables and a counter). Chairs lined up outside for you go wait for your table. Wait is well worth it. Best seafood I've ever had and I come from... More

This is the freshest fish in Pompano Beach. Be aware that this place is very popular and only seats 20 people so you may have to wait to get to enjoy the food. They are open Tuesday-Saturday. It is located in a small shopping area that you turn between Enterprise and Dairy Queen off of Highway 1 to get to... More

I love fried oysters and they have the best in town. Not many tables but well worth the wait. My friends are shocked on how large the servings are.
