Great food, long wait

Well, it's totally weird that you have to stand outside in a long line to get your food. But, the food is really good. We got it to go!

Great little place with good food for good value! Grilled shrimp is the best I have ever had! You stand outside and wait until it's your turn to go in and order then they bring it to your table.

Have always been pleased here but this time the peel n eat shrimp were so over cooked they were like leather. I sent them back and they were gracious about it but the second batch were just as tough.

Get there early! Long line but it moves right along. Outstanding sea food! VERY laid back! No alcohol.

A true hole in the wall, with great seafood. It's not much to look at, but the service, the food and the value are all excellent.

Great food with reasonable pricing. A down home restaurant where the locals eat. They open for dinner at 5:00pm and if your not there by 4:35pm the line is long enough that you'll miss the first sitting. However, if you miss the first sitting, it's worth the wait for the next available seat.

Eating at the Sea Shack is like being on a certain Seinfeld episode, although if you know the rules (we didn't), it is a pleasant experience. If there is a line outside, get in it. Don't try going inside to give a hostess your name; it's not that kind of place. Be prepared to be ushered in, to stand in... More

went here our first day and stood in line to get in not no more than twenty minutes. Once we got in very good food we would go back.

Long line outdoors for both take out and dining in (spent some time watching an alligator in a pond behind the restaurant). We got take out as the wait to dine in for a large party was long. Food was very good and reasonably priced. I'm sure we'll go there again next time in the area.

Go in your shorts and flip flops and expect to eat some wonderful seafood with plastic cutlery. Would not miss a trip this dive on every trip to Hilton Head! I love the grilled shrimp and cheese grits!
