It was a packed night and the line was quite long. DH ordered our food at the counter and I tried to find an empty space for us. Not long after we sit, our server brought our food. We shared a plate of codfish with fries, gumbo bowl, and shrimp cocktail. Every bite tasted so unique and flavorful. The price... More

After debating with a friend where the best shrimp and crab boil spot was around DFW, he told me I needed to try Fish Shack. This place was obviously an old Long John Silver's! Gauging from the line wrapped almost out the door, I figured it must be good and worth the wait. Draft beers for $2 were a bonus...food... More

Once you walk in, you forget your in a big city but in a local shack off the coast! Small, gets very crowded and I know why... the food is so fresh, tasty and down right delicious!!! We travel from Lewisville to Plano to just eat the seafood! Crab cakes aren't that great, but the catfish is wonderful!

Went to this place based on neighbors reviews. It was very busy and small inside. They had great oysters which we liked, not good crabcakes. The beer selection is quite good and the prices are very reasonable, better at Happy Hour-$2 drafts. We noticed a couple that brought food in and just ordered drinks at Happy Hour- not good since...

We stumbled upon the Fish Shack on 15th Street in Plano and we're glad we did. Surprisingly good seafood. Very reasonable prices. Unpretentious enough to easily pass right by - and we almost did until we noticed all the parking spots were taken even though it was almost 2 pm. So we hoped for the best and we were not... More

Love it! Food was wonderful (must try the blackened fish tacos) as well as the service! Can't wait to come back. Taking home a Tshirt as a momento!

We did not know what to expect as the restaurant building is older and rather small on the inside, but the reviews were good so we tried it out. The pricing is very reasonable and everything we sampled was good. The service is friendly and quick. If it is a nice day, then you can fight for a seat at... More

We have been here often for years; and came here twice in the last 2 weeks for lunch, on a Friday and a Saturday. Both days the place was very crowded, however the line moved relatively fast, and food came shortly afterward. Lots of choices: there were all kinds of seafood, prepared in a any way to your liking; and... More

When I need a fish taco fix this is the place I go. The tilapia they use is very good with no fishy smell. I loved the side of spicy coleslaw added to the fish taco. Prices are reasonable and the beer is cold. Highly recommend this casual and clean restaurant.

Not fancy, just good food. Large portions reasonably priced. Seafood gumbo had lots of garlic. Had fried shrimp and oysters. Definitely go back to try more menu items and daily specials.
