Best seafood in southern Florida

Arrived in Pompano Beach yesterday stopped at the Fishack for lunch had the cracked conch and the scallops, as always they were very excellent. Went back today and had the grilled combo, all I can say is that it is some the best seafood that I have ever had. The owner Elisa is very friendly and... read more

Went to the Fish Shack for the first time a few weeks ago. Got the conch fritters (so-so), I had the fried grouper (meh) and my husband got the blackened mahi (he loved it). The prices were ok, and I thought my sandwich wasn't very good. The fried crust was soggy and there was very little flavor. This place is... More

The food here is excellent and reasonably priced. However, the place is a victim of its own success. We had to wait about 35 mins. Then we sat neat the door. People came and went all the time and it is very noisy. I had the grilled cajun Mahi Mahi which was very fresh and very tasty. Cannot fault the... More

We stopped here because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. We went early, around 5:00 PM and got a table right away. There are 4 tables, seating 12, plus a bar that seats maybe 8. So the comment that is is about the size of your living room is accurate. Food was good, not expensive. They have beer and wine,... More

This place is basically the size of your living room. But the food is the best and the freshest seafood I have ever had. The wait is well worth it. The staff is great. The prices are also very reasonable. Get there early and prepare to wait. But you will see it is well worth it.

The Fish Shack is a great resturant! We had to wait about 45 minutes and it was worth the wait. Some locals came up and did not want to wait and made a coment about this place being "discovered" by tourist but they did recommend the cracked conch and it was wonderful. It is small, seating for about 22 people... More

Our third trip to the Fish Shack. Food still great. A bit of a wait, but worth it. Plan on waiting, but have a beer or wine and enjoy the lovely evening!!!

Pulling up to this "shack" may give one pause but believe me, the food is far more fabulous than the location and it's definitely worth the wait! This tiny (and that is no exaggeration) place serves some of the best seafood in the area. You'll leave having made new friends due to the intimacy of the little space and the... More

Excellent food and service. You MUST try the shrimp and scallop fritters. Not over breaded at all. Freshly made. Whatever you eat will be delicious. Plus who doesn't love $2 Bud/Bud Light drafts? First time going for the hubby and me....will most definitely return. Shout out to our server Amy who was VERY pleasant and also VERY informative. Anyone who... More
