Do not be fooled by the unassuming exterior or diner quality interior. This is the best fried shrimp I have eaten from New Orleans to Savannah to the Keys. Super light crunchy batter. The owner explained that the batter is homemade and a fresh batch is made every hour. Plus a tremendous lobster bisque rendition. It has become our new... More

We were faithful customers of SHARKS in Pt Charlotte, but now it has a new name - but the food is still as excellent as ever. The new paint and décor is wonderful. We really enjoyed our dining experience. The Lobster Bisque is to die for.... Katie is an awesome waitress...we always feel welcome! Fish is always fresh and cooked... More

Hopefully if you go here you will have some of the "green"salsa. The best I've ever had. I ordered the seafood platter and there was more than enough for two meals. It was delicious except I do not care for basa. The server was better than excellent. Don't go here for atmosphere, the food makes up for it. Have to... More

Excellent! As good as the good reviews. Service and waitress, Carmen, was super. Lobster bisque is a must! Got half baskets and plenty of food. Shrimp was firm, tasty and cooed perfectly. Onion rings crisp with no grease. Even the coleslaw was outstanding.

We get take out fish, schrimp and onion rings about 6 times a year. This last time everything was extremely greasy? Old oil? Too bad -usually very crispy- not this time.

We ate at the PC Fish House based on great Trip Advisor reviews. As it turned out, the name had changed from formerly Shark's Fish House just the week before, and they hadn't finished repainting on the day we ate there. The restaurant is tiny and hidden behind a post in a strip center. You might be put off by... More

Best part of this place is Carmen, a server. She is very good at what she does and you'd think she was the owner, not just an employee. No atmosphere here. Just good fish prepared well for a decent price. We ate here 3 times.
