Amazing place!

I was honestly a little skeptical when I finally found this place, it doesn't look like anything you expected it to be. I decided to give it a try & I am so glad I did. It was packed! The waitress found me at the door & put my name on the waiting list. She asked me if me or... read more

Ive been a fan of this place in a less than desirable area strip center for a while. The food is good and fresh, but the limited tables and seats at the bar make it difficult to deal with. Recently we went and were on the waiting list having a drink. One bar stool opened up and I was told... More

This is not a welcoming place for first timers. When we arrived a wait staff sent us to the back and we didn't see her again. After this, I went to the cashier to see if we could order and she told us to sit on the side and still no one came. After this, we decided to go to... More

This is a joint!! It's a storefront hidden off an alley with 4 tables and 8 seats at the bar. The waiting room is outside the door on folding chairs. They serve one kind of beer and one kind of wine. But the food is superb! First rate oysters and other fried shellfish as well as freshly made fish with... More

I wanted to go to this place because I read that they have conch, which my husband loves but we can't get where we live. Definitely worth it. Very small place so not much seating, but we didn't have any problem getting right in, even for a family of three. We went on a week day around noon. We both... More

The service / food was excellent. Read reviews about the Fish Shack, my husband and I Found this place very interesting enjoyed the food. The place was very busy they only have 4 Tables, locals drop in and p/u their orders. The Yellowfin Tuna was grilled to perfection, my husband eat Fish / Chips was equally good. Would return to...

We were here last wed nite and it did not disappoint! Though we waited about an hour (went at bad time..6p), it was so worth the wait. This set the bar for all the seafood we have had from here to key west this trip. Others in the keys came close but we kept saying this was the best! Sat... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. From the minute we pulled up to the restaurant there were red flags. Horrible parking lot and scary neighborhood. Drunks hanging around out front. When we went into the place, we couldn't believe it. You would think if it was that great and they've been in... More

The BEST cracked conch anywhere! Do yourself a favor & check it out! If you're going for lunch, try to arrive before noon; they get busy early. I read the review about the locals being mad about tourists discovering the place - LOL!! I'm a local; while I'm super happy for the owners, I am a little inconvenienced when I... More

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 makes you feel at... More
