I always try to go to the Sea Shack during their lunch hours, which I feel greatly reduces the wait time. The line always moves very quickly, though I highly suggest figuring out what you want to eat before making it to the register. I normally get the crab cake sandwich and try and mix up my sides, since they... More

In the end the food was amazing and a great value. And once you get in the restaurant it comes fast, which somewhat negates the long wait because at most restaurants you wait a while for food after you sit down. But the wait outside is LONG and there is nothing to do. No seats. No bar. No view --... More

This must be a place that you love if it was a favorite for many years in your family. Maybe if over the years it was familiar, it would make up for the less that great food. We felt the hush puppies were over breaded. There was some flavoring on the grilled shrimp and scallops that I could not identify,... More

The lunch hours are 12-3, and dinner hours are 5-9. Regardless of what time you show up, you'll be standing in line outside waiting for a table. We arrived about 7:30 p.m. and saw the long line going out into the parking lot. Discouraged, we walked to both neighboring restaurants in the parking lot. One didn't look like anything we... More

90 degrees outside, 1 hr wait to place an order and well worth it! Blackened shrimp po boy was great, right portion size! Hush puppies were delicious! Even with the wait will make this at regular stop!

If you want fine dining, go somewhere else...but if you just love seafood like My wife and I, this is a restaurant you will rejoice to find. Handled like a fast food restaurant, you place your order at the counter, get your own drink from the fountain or sweet tea dispenser (recommended), and find a seat. They bring the food... More

OK....Life is not perfect. Sometimes you want a romantic night out and sometimes it is just a fun night out. We biked down the beach from Palmetto Dunes about 3 miles each way. The dress at the Sea Shack is casual so biking over was fine. The reviewers are right, not fancy with a small seating area. However if you... More

Try to go at non peak times. The hush puppies are great. I usually get the crab cakes. My husband always gets the big combo platter. It is a must on our trips to Hilton Head.

The line starts before this place opens if that gives you any hint of the following this place has. It is a small restaurant where you order your dinner cafeteria style and wait to have it prepared. Extensive list of low country sides, fresh seafood prepared the way you want it (grilled, fried or Cajun) and the lowest prices on... More

The Sea Shack is nothing fancy. Food is good and portion sizes are large. You order at a counter so no waitress. Here's the deal. This restaurant is tiny. It opens at 5. We got there right around 5 and it was full. You wait outside the whole time so be prepared to stand in heat for a while. Go... More
