Was looking for fried fish - but not catfish. Was pleasantly surprised to find that they had not one but at least two choices other than fried catfish -- haddock and tilapia. I had the fried haddock and it was hot, moist and tasty. Also had clam chowder -- a little different, but good. Have been here before and had... More

This place has excellent entrees of fresh fish of various types. The food is outstanding and always prepared properly. It also is very reasonably priced. Don't expect a fancy place because there is practically no ambience. You order at the counter and wait for your orders to be delivered to you. No tablecloths! The police eat here because it is...

Our family has enjoyed eating at the Fish Shack regularly for the last three years. We all love seafood but are picky about it tasting fresh. The Fish Shack is by far the best family seafood place that we have experienced in the area.

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
