“where the locals go !!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Great seafood at great prices. Crab cake sandwich is to die for, large portions. Suggest you get there early for lunch . Make you observe the ordering and seating protocol- order first then find a seat- no seat saving. Only down side bathrooms rather rustic. You'll have lunch or dinner with the locals.

“Unassuming, But Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is not your typical resort town seafood restaurant. You wait outside in a usually very long line, order at the counter, and find a table. The food is cooked when ordered and arrives to your table steaming hot. They offer fried, grilled, or blackened. Each meal comes with two sides, hushpuppies, and slaw. I had the grilled scallops and shrimp, slaw, and carrots. The scallops were amazing! My husband had fried oysters and loved them, too. The sides are posted on a chalkboard near the door.

“Today, Sea Shack was outstanding.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We have dined at Sea Shack while on vacation at Hilton Head Island for years The past 3 years it has been hit or miss. We tried it for an early lunch today and the food was great. The wife had grilled popcorn scallops that were excellent and I had fried shrimp which was very good. Cheese grits, cole slaw, fries, she crab soup, it was all very good. It was early and not crowded, so maybe that is the key to a GREAT meal at Sea Shack.

“Seafood delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

You may have to stand in line outside for 15 minutes or so waiting for a table to become available. But, the wait is worth it. It is a little rustic, but the food is worth it. The local know it well. You will order your seafood dinner, get your drink and sit down and wait to have it brought to you. You have your choice of a number of seafood dishes at reasonable prices. The six of us all felt we had an excellent dinner.

Once again, a great meal at a great price!! Fried oyster and crabcakes are a favorite. Don't let the line outside scare you away...it means they are worth waiting for!!
