I am not a seafood person, but my siblings do and they loved the seafood place. I had the chicken tenders basket with hush puppies and they were amazing. I will definitely be coming back to this place the next time I am at Atlantic Beach!

Quaint little place. Love to stop here for lunch. Can definitely share a basket. Lots of food. Great seafood baskets. Outdoors enjoy eating there. Corn hole hula hoop for the kids, nice little bar area to sit at.

Ordered 3 Grouper sandwiches with hushpuppies, a fried shrimp Caesar salad and buffalo shrimp basket with fries with 3 sweet teas and a bud light . EVERYTHING was DELICIOUS! The staff was on point from ordering to cooking to delivering. The portions are... More

The Softshell Crab sandwich was huge and tasty. We also tried a side of fried dill pickles. They were salty and we only ate half of the order. It probably would have been better as a take out and eaten at our nearby condo. It was windy and hot outside on the picnic tables. There was not enough seating and... More

I am glad you enjoyed the soft shell sandwich. Unfortunately, we are only allowed a certain amount of seating per the Health Department. Looking forward to seeing you again! Thank you! More

Great food to bring back to condo after long drive and checkin. Fish tacos were terrific. We also has grouper bites, fish and chips, and shrimp. Food remained hot and crisp (about 10 min between drive back and getting food to room).

The wife didn't want a sit down meal (toddler and baby were about to melt down) and I didn't want McDonalds - so we came over to Shark Shack as it had good reviews on here. One of the few times I've been disappointed by trip advisor reviews. The fish bites were noted as good but were bland. I will... More

Cooked to order! We had the grouper bites, shrimp, and calamari and would order them again and again and again. Great find (I found it on Trip Advisor).

We loved our lunch and can't wait to go back! The seafood tacos and grouper bites are amazing. This place should be the number one place to eat in Atlantic Beach!

Great little quirky spot for a quick lunch. The grouper bite basket is my favorite. The basket is full of lightly battered , fried, tasty grouper bites plus one side. I like Cole slaw with mine, but the fries are delicious too. They have a cooler full of tarter and cocktail sauces next where you pick up the food to... More
