Love the Shack

We got lucky on the wait department and got in after only a few minutes, but the lines got very long after that. I loved the blackened tilapia and shrimp as well as the scallops. The food was excellent, but the prices were in between mid-high for lunch. While the food was excellent, I wouldn't wait... read more

Once again, another excellent lunch at the Sea Shack. This was the first time we had to wait outside in a short line, but it was only for 10 minutes or so. (We prefer going for lunch just to avoid the very long lines at dinner.) We were invited in before a table opened up for us, (group of 6),... More

Wonderful seafood! Very small restaurant and make sure you get there early. They open for dinner at 5pm. We got there at 4:10pm and were about the 4th group of people in line. Again, great food but be prepared to wait for it! ❤️ We got the fish & shrimp platter and the gator & shrimp combo. We cleaned our... More

Excellent seafood. Excellent price. The wait is long, an hour and a half, around 7:00. There were 10 of us and all of us had different platters and everyone loved the seafood. One comment, don't get the hamburger. :) Pretty sure it was not 100% beef. The blackened is spicy but so tasty. Definitely will be back.

Get there early, maybe around 4 and the doors open at 5. Great seafood at the lowest prices on the island.

OK, my wife and daughters always drop me off and go somewhere else BUT I love this place. Blackened Mahi was outstanding and the sweet potato cornbread was like dessert. Fantastic!! If you like fish it's a must!

This place is unusual. First, it has the freshest, tastiest seafood I have had in my life. That said, EVERYONE stands outside and is admitted to order one at a time. There are maybe 8 chairs for 100 people. The awning will cover about 30 of them if they are lucky. The rest are strung in a line in the... More

We decided to see what the long waits were all about. Fortunately, we went for lunch at 2pm and only had to wait about 20 mins. The food was good not great. Had peel and eat shrimp and blacked grouper. It was quick and very nice staff. Recommend going close to closing at 3pm for lunch to avoid the wait.

The Sea Shack is by far the best place to dine on HHI. We visited twice in 5 days. All four of us ate fresh seafood for about $50 per meal. Delicious sides change daily and and are a nice variety. Fried shrimp and blackened shrimp and fish were awesome. Tasty hushpuppies are a special treat as they are hard... More

Went for lunch. We stood in line out in the blazing sun. (94 degrees) My wife asked if there were red onions in the crab cakes as she is allergic to them. The employee checked and came back out and said "They said no, but I hope you don't die"' shrugged her shoulders and smiled. We finally were allowed through... More
