We've been enjoying meals at Fish Shack since it opened. It's a great "mom and pop" place, and we're glad we're not far away. The building housing it started its life as a Long John Silver's seafood place, so it isn't big at all. There is a main dining area and an enclosed climate controlled add-on patio. Decor is simple...

Fish Shack has been going strong for several years now. On the cusp of downtown Plano, I've enjoyed watching the place grow a little, but glad it hasn't changed. I enjoy watching the cooks prepare the massive amounts of food to feed the enormous number of hungry patrons. You can sit at a bar and watch, but one can also... More

Back in Dallas for business, I found this place through TA. Well, I must say the food was excellent. Not fancy in its preparation or presentation, but just fresh fried goodness. I had the shrimp and oysters with an added catfish filet. If I would have done one thing different it would be to get more shrimp. Good cold draft... More

This is one of the staple of many locals. Love the Chilled Seafood Salad, Fish Tacos, Dungeness Crab Legs. People also get family packs to go for parties. Happy hours offer great deals. Beer at USD 2. Oysters are cheap too!

I love good, clean catfish, but it is difficult to find. This place has it. You will not be disappointed. Don't be deceived by the looks of the building. You order in line, then the food is brought to your table. While we were there, the line began forming almost out the door. Very clean restaurant; friendly employees.

This restaurant is another reason that downtown Plano is awesome to visit after 5 PM. That wasn't the case in the 80s/90s. It was never dangerous, just nothing to do. The Fish Shack is busy, and parking could be difficult. Nevertheless, the food was worth it. Coming from Florida where seafood is frequently held to a high standard, I thought... More

We love this place! We have visited this location several times and it's always the same delicious seafood! It is always busy every night but they get your order promptly and you receive your food hot and wonderful! If you love seafood this is the place

Wasn't really impressed. Prices are very reasonable - but you get what you pay for. We were not all that impressed.

Decided to go really early---around 11:15Am---for lunch so we could beat the crowd. That is not going to happen. The line was already at the front door and the place was packed. It would appear that we would not get a seat at this early hour. It was Wednesday so we struck with the lunch special which as a large... More
