The oysters were fresh an excellent. My husband had fried fish and it was tasty. It is a very small rustic place mostly for adults. Do not recommend for a family with kids. No reservation accepted, and waiting time at least 15-20 min but it is worth it.

I was in the neighborhood at lunch time and decided to stop by. I had read great things about their food. It was a bit confusing when I first walked in. No one really to greet you and offer a seat. There were 2 stools, but with people standing there it was hard to tell. So I stood by a... More

hmmm, I don't get it. Why is it so hard to get fresh fish in this area, that this little dumpy hole in the wall gets such great reviews. I guess people like this kind of low end place, but personally I don't like to have to SHOUT to the person sitting next to me because the noise level is... More

We have heard about the Fish Shack from numerous people so we finally had to check it out for ourselves. We were not disappointed!!! This place is a local little hole in the wall with great FRESH fish. When Dawn and I pulled into the parking lot there was quite the line to get in. Everyone we encountered said it... More

When we go with other couples we wait too long. Best bet is to call and order to go. Everything is the best. We always get the oysters to start. After that it is all good.
