Great casual place to eat.

Great place to eat. Different atmosphere. Very casual. Do not have to wait for someone to come to table to take your order then wait for your food to arrive.

If you do not like good food at affordable places please stay away. If you are insistent upon comparing this place to a place with linen tablecloths and crystal, please stay away. However, if you are looking to try some of the best seafood along the eastern coast, give it a try. The scallops are untouchable, meaning they are truly... More

Why would people stand in line for twenty minutes during the coldest night in the middle of the low season? Because this small place serves the best seafood you will ever eat in a clean, laid back environment. You will need your GPS to find this place because it is virtually hidden in an out of the way back street.... More

First impression when walking through the door, wow this place is small but cute, 2nd impression gentleman at register being highly rude to and elderly gentleman because the man was after looking at the menu ordered grouper (the gentleman thought he was ordering the sandwhich) 1. The cashier should always ask for clarification instead of ASSUMING. As a first time... More

This was our absolute most favorite place to eat on a week long trip. I just googled seafood places because I wanted to find something we hadn't passed on the road or anything. This came up as a top pick in Southern Living magazine. I had to talk my husband into going. And when we pulled up an hour before... More

My wife and I rode up to HHI today for a while, and we decided to check this spot out. It was small, but that's ok most really good hideouts are. The service we received was ok, but someone before us was not so lucky. We got to hear the employees talking about a previous customer. Wonder if we were... More

Others have described the place as a dive or a hole in the wall. That's pretty accurate, it is not fancy, but the food is great. Most seafood is available either grilled or fried. I had fried oysters and catfish that were first-rate. It is a little hard to find but Executive Drive is a loop road that comes off... More

Good old fashion good food, low-key surroundings and real people. The Sea Shack has a lot of options for anyone wanting to experience the great sea food of this area. Both the fried shrimp platter and the blackened catfish were excellent - lots of good flavour, real fries (not coated with stuff), the best hush puppies around and lots of... More

This place is such a treasure. We've been coming here for many years and have never had a bad meal. Not easy to find but definitely worth the effort! You need to know that there are only a few tables inside and that you must order at the counter before you take a seat. Once the tables are occupied, you'll... More

The fish was some of the best I ever had. The lettuce and salad garnishments were very fresh. The tables and chairs fit the name. "Shack". But you do not go there for the seating. If you are will to pay $35 for lunch for two with no appetizers, it will be some of the best fish you have ever... More
