Stuck on Catfish & Red Beans & Rice

This is the best lunch bargains around, a good large piece of fried catfish and a very large bowl of some of the best red beans and rice one can get. We went early again hoping to beat the lunch crowd and we were right on target. Walked in without a line and placed our order and it was just... read more

We like the food - we really do. Sure, it's not overly seasoned. They likely do that so people can add their own seasonings at the table. Fairly priced as well. And we'll continue to go back. I just hope a Fish Shack manager reads this ! It's" take out "! Why can't they put what you order in the... More

Since relocating to Dallas from Louisiana, we have missed being able to get good seafood. On our first trip to this restaurant, we both had the lunch catfish special and enjoyed it very much. The second time, we both got seafood. My husband had the Santorini cocktail, a house special, which is a shrimp cocktail in a glass with tomato... More

While growing up in a Southeastern coastal state, I have had plenty of fried seafood. The Fish Shack serves very good fried shrimp and catfish. I would not say that they are excellent, but we are a long way from the coast! They do not include a typical southern fried seafood staple - hushpuppies. I do not know why? When... More

Decided to have lunch here after all the great reviews. Mistake! I ordered one of their so called specialties - calamari. The batter was tasteless and there was alot of it to cover up the teeny tiny pieces of calamari. The hush puppies are too heavy, sort of like wet tennis balls. My husband had the catfish lunch special -... More

Great service and fresh seafood. Excellent fish tacos. Get there early, the line can get long even on a rainy.

Don't expect fancy but expect fresh inexpensive fish. Oysters are good. Not the highest quality but for the price they are on. Great fish sandwich! Great beer and a very generous pour of wine.

Friday Special-Grilled Fish Tacos, get them blackend, you won't regret it. They are so good! Make sure you add the spicy coleslaw and slice of avocado! They really know what they are doing when it comes to fish! The fried catfish and fried oysters are so so good. If you like ceviche, you must try this place. The only thing... More

I had the Catfish and an order of hush puppies. The fish was lightly breaded and fried perfectly to keep the fish moist. All food is delivered seconds after it is finished cooking so it is fresh and hot. The servings are such that you leave full. The three times I have been here, the place has been busy, but... More
