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.

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.

Nothing special with the fried fare, crab cakes were much too salty. Good outdoor dining area, umbrellas and picnic tables are nice. There are toys and plenty of space for children to play.

Shark Shark advertises Tuesday-Sunday 11 to 7pm. We saved our grouper sandwich til our last day. Arrived at the Shack on Tues 7/5. "Open" flags flying but not open. No explanation. Not nice to do to customers!
