The Sea Shack was recommended by a friend of a friend. Warned that it could get crowded. We went for a late lunch, the line was outside the door. As the four of us arrived the group ahead went in and we opened the door and looked in. The line to order was not long and there was tables... read more

We stumbled upon this run of the mill place on some random website. It is a no frills off the main road restaurant which is all about the food. They serve anything from shrimp, fish, alligator, frog legs, clams and daily veggies . The line was out of the door but the taste of hot perfectly cooked seafood was worth... More

We arrived at this destination about 6 pm. Already quite a line. After 45 minutes, we got a table. A very casual place to eat. The seafood was fresh and delicious. I ordered blackened flounder with greens and a small side salad w/ Cucumber wasabi dressing. All fresh and quite good! Our table ordered salmon, crab cake, shrimp, and calamari;... More

I love this place...It's so good! The line and the wait is always long so that speaks volumes. It's worth the wait.

Have been to this place every time we visit, and never, ever disappointed. Seafood is fresh. Had mine grilled and wife had fried, and let me tell you, it is wonderful. I would recommend this anytime.

Food was great. We almost missed the lunch rush and when we arrived there were no tables. However, by the time our food was ready there was an open table. Crab cake was delish. Also had oysters, hush puppies, scallops...so Good!

Paper plates, china prices and RUDE wait staff. Always rushing you and could care less if you have a place to sit. Most food is fried and greese used since last year. Why people stand in line OUTSIDE to eat here has always amazed me. No alcohol served so hope you like Coke or Tea.

If atmosphere is more important than the food, then don't visit the Sea Shack. But if you're looking for great seafood with no frills, then make a beeline for Sea Shack. It's not in the least pretentious, but the long lines waiting attest to the fabulous food they serve. For those who get here after they open at 5:00 can... More

Heard about The Sea Shack in one of the local books. We've been coming to HHI for years now and never knew about this place. Well, We got there and saw the line and waited patently, it moved fast and we were in in about 30 minutes. I have to say the food was among the best tasting seafood I've... More
