“Good eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Order from the window or get waited on at the picnic tables. The selection is pretty typical for your fried beach fare, but the difference is that this tastes great. It wasn't greasy and tasted fresh and for the price, it couldn't be beat.

“Shark Shack IS #1!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

The Shark Shack has to be first on our list of place to go when we are on vacation. We love their fish tacos! The atmosphere is laid back and we enjoy the live music. The servers keep your glass full and make sure your food is exactly what you want. Highly recommend for atmosphere, quality of food, great staff and great prices.

the shrimp basket was fantastic. Servers are great and laid-back. Seating is all outdoors under large umbrellas. Great fried oysters.

“This shark won't take a bite out of your wallet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

We hit the shark shack for lunch in August. It has exclusively outdoor seating They seat you and take your order at the covered picnic tables. They have burgers, dogs, seafood sandwiches, seafood baskets, and more. Our group had the grouper sandwich (yum), oyster burger (fried oysters put on a bun, very yum), and shrimp burgers (fried shrimp on a bun, very yum). Each came with a side of cole slaw, fries, or hush puppies (all good).

The boys played cornhole while we waited (which wasn't long). We paid and tipped at the window. All the prices were affordable. Good and cheap are always a good combination. Highly recommended.
