This is a true gem. Local dive seafood shack. If you are looking for some awesome fresh affordable seafood this is the spot. They have it all and if you are a seafood lover you will have a hard time not ordering the whole damn menu. Fresh mahi, grouper, clams, oysters, tiger shrimp, gator, scallops etc.... For all the Northerners... More

The not glamourous , "seafood shack " kind of place. The food is good and you can get some real values here. Usually pretty crowded so dont expect a fast food experience.

Have been going to Tark's for more than 20 years now and have never been disappointed. Whether it's fried, raw or steamed, the seafood is always fresh and well-prepared, the beer is ice cold, the service is always friendly and the atmosphere very casual even if it can get a bit crowded at times but that is the fun of...

We have been coming here over 20 years. True, it looks like a shack, but my experience is shacks are great all over the world! My favorite is the buffalo shrimp. Kids love the winds and my husband loves the oysters. A couple of beers and you are good to go. Outside or inside, both great. I avoid the restroom... More

This old, established Dania institution never fails to deliver the basics: steamed , fried, on the half shell clams, hot hot wings, shrimp, red or white clam chowder, fries along with excellent service. This is a proper New England Shellfish Stand relocated to Florida, a stone's throw from the Airport and the beach. Do not miss this on your next... More

We decided to eat here on a recommendation. It's very unassuming and tiny. You order at the bar and sit where you like. It wasn't at all busy when we went, however I could see it getting a little crazy if it was. We had the conch salad and Mahi sandwich. Both were delicious. Best part is it was totally... More
