Great seafood

We asked for a recommendation for dinner - and the Sea Shack was at the top of the list. Its near the Sea Pines Circle right off Pope. We arrived at 5:30 and there were only 10 people in front of us in line so our wait was about 10 minutes. When you go in, you order at the counter,... read more

Everyone had a great meal and the next time we cannot wait to go back. Great sea food, super batter on fish.

After several nights out at nice restaurants, we decided to scale back and have a lower key evening. An employee at the resort we were staying at recommended my boyfriend and I stop by Sea Shack for dinner. We're glad we did. Sea Shack feels like an authentic, divey, local joint. No bells and whistles here - just fresh and... More

I've reviewed the Sea Shack before, but had to do so again! So what's up with this place? Here are a few facts: Yes, it's a dive! The décor is out-dated diner; the tables are close together and it's a tiny hole in the wall. The only bathroom is outside and the utensils are plastic. It's not a fine dining... More

Sea Shack is great. It's a little hole in the wall with the freshest fish and the best hush puppies. This time I had the buffalo shrimp. Great spice and flavor. Highly recommend!

It;s not only the best, it is cheap compared to everyone else. Make sure you get there early. They only have seating for around 30. They hve kept itsmall and have been able to keep the quality.

My wife read about this place online as one of the recommended places to eat on Hilton Head. This was the one place we planned to eat at before leaving. We arrived at 7:20pm and there was a line outside spanning the entire building. We waited in line until 8:35pm (we were taking bets on what time we would get... More

I was warned Sea Shack was a dive so my expectations were as such. The bathroom is outside but clean and plastic ware is used. The food is good though. I enjoyed grilled Mahi Mahi and the children had fried shrimp. The hush puppies were delicious. The sweet potato corn bread was different; I liked it. It was more like... More

I visited the Sea Shack on the recommendation of people I know that visit HH on a regualr basis. It's tucked away on a side road and is not on the water. So, if you are expecting views, it isn't going to happen. This is a small place where you stand in line and are seated as tables open up.... More

We were looking for a restaurant that had gator and found this little gem. They served it grilled, fried or blackened. Fried was so good. Not a pretty joint but was clean and seemed to be a very authentic southern food restaurant. Conch fritters and blackened mahi mahi was delish! Nice for a casual lunch.
