After 18 years in south Florida, I finally found the perfect seafood restaurant!! It's always puzzled me that most so-called seafood restaurants in south FL have frozen or imported fish. Fish Shack, on the other hand, has only fresh, local caught seafood. I've dined there about 6 times since discovering this place 2 months ago. It's a bit hard to... More

If you try only one thing here it has to be the shrimp and scallop fritters. They are so light and chock full of shrimp and scallops fried to a golden hue. Dip them in a little cocktail sauce and you'll be in heaven. Other great things are the blackened mahi platter with rice and slaw. Always consistent and always... More

So glad to have found this place in yelp (sorry trip advisor) and what a little gem it is. Small 4 table dining room and bar service with a great selection of seafood standards.

You want to make the effort to find this place. The facade plain and simple, you go in, casual, simple, you look at the menu, simple food at fair prices, then you order and the magic begins. Everything super fresh, served in abundance and you are compelled to clean your plate it's so good. Also, not for nothing, the coldest,... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch after seeing good reviews. Place is small, we knew this before going. We sat at bar. Once we looked at menu there was no lunch menu only one combined menu. We both had fish. Food was good but nothing great like other reviews stated. Lunch came in a basket not on a... More

The Fish Shack is a small no frills restaurant with the best and freshest seafood in Pompano Beach. They are very busy so be patient.

The golden tile fish was very good, the French fries were amazing. The rest was ok, not great and not bad. Small place seats about 20 and had a line the whole time while we were there. A locals favorite.

Stopped for lunch, the fresh fish and fries were awesome, soups, salads, key lime pie were just ok. Would come again for the fish n fries and skip the rest.
