Best lobster dinner for best price. Delicious!!! The sides were huge-fresh hot rolls. Salad was fresh and plentiful. Friendly waitress. Just writing this makes me want to go back.

View of the ocean in this quaint place with reasonable prices. Great seafood. Small wine list and a bit loud in the main area but worth the wait

I kept checking the date on my phone to make sure it was 2015. The fish cakes, coleslaw, and baked beans are probably exactly what they have been serving since 1955. The food was edible but nothing to write home about at all. This is the place you take your kids when you need to get a quick bite and... More

Prices were very good. Options with fish portions are always a plus!! Seated anywhere in the dining area and you can look out the giant windows out onto a beautiful jetty. Friendly staff, good prices and tasty food make this a MUST for a seaside lunch!!

A pleasant casual restaurant with very good food and a nice view. The fried seafood is fresh and not heavily breaded. Scallops were particularly good. Lobster scampi was delicious, although the linguini was a bit overcooked. We would definitely return.

This place appealed to us as it was not as crowded as the restaurants on Bearskin Neck. While the Fish Shack is not technically on the neck it is locate right at the start so is still convenient. There was a large selection of seafood, salads and other usual favourites at reasonable prices. My husband had the soup and I... More

I would say this restaurant in Bearskin Neck offers satisfactory food with lovely views of the harbor. We enjoyed a simple butter shrimp scampi ($17) and lobster roll (~$22 for an average, not generous, portion of four ounces). The shrimp was outstandingly fresh. But, I felt that the green beans that came as a side and the cheese on the... More
