Excellent Fish

All the food is excellent. I usually get the fish of the day grilled. My husband always orders the fried catfish and shrimp. Great please for fish and beer.

This is a diamond in the rough. Enter a concrete floor, picnic table restaurant, wait in line to order & be greeted by Frank, the owner, with a smile. If you are a regular, and there are many, he'll remember your name & choice of drink. Fish is fresh, drinks are cheap & the 70s music & decor will make... More

We stopped here for lunch on a whim based on the Trip Advisor ranking for Plano and the good reviews as we passed through town. The place is just the kind we love- local, unique, and friendly. The menu was promising and reasonably priced, and the two specials made it hard to decide. We settled on the grilled mahi-mahi special... More

This is one of the best meals in one of the most unassuming places around town. When we first pulled up, I was a little hesitant; until I saw the line of people waiting! Fresh oysters, great po boys and cols beer. Don't get much better!!!

Frank and team are the best. The food quality, service, portions and prices are all great. They will cook your seafood however you want...My husband and I just love this place. It is a great value for such great quality.

This place has grilled fish at a great price. They offer $2.50 beers (even local micros) and $3.25 glasses of wine. If you try it, you will be back.

My husband had driven past the Fish Shack several times, and after an afternoon in Dallas at the Auto Show we were looking for a quick dinner without the fuss of a sit-down, waited-on, drawn out dinner affair - so we ended up here. The place was very busy at 8 pm on a Sunday evening - a sign of... 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

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... 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
