Its off the beaten path and small, but worth the trip every time. Fantastic fresh caught seafood and very reasonable prices!

Great seafood place, but only room for about 20 people. So plan to wait when they are busy. Oysters were great, and there fish sandwiches excellent. The location is off the main drag, but easy to find with a garmin. Prices are reasonable, and our waitress was excellent. But definitely a local dive with that ocean shack feel! Love it!

abd that headline is still valid after waiting more than 30 minutes outside to get seated. Shrimps with garlic butter as a starter served fast and nicely cooked. My 2 guests had each 2 grilled 6oz lobster tails served with fries and a perfect coleslaw. I had a Ahi Tuna burger which was cooked to perfection and served with a... More

A tiny, little tucked away restaurant with unbelievably good seafood! The chowder, grilled combo and kids fish & chips were excellent. And the service was super friendly!

Found this awesome little hole in the wall on Yelp! And, let me tell you, what a wonderful find! Very small but cute. There are only about 4-6 tables and the bar seats about 8. The food was absolutely amazing! We had the raw oysters and buffalo shrimp to start and the deep fried lobster tail sandwiches. All I can... More

We have to agree with other reviews this is a hidden gem. Small 3 tables that seat 4 and 1 table for 2. People also sit at the bar 8 to 10 seats. The fish is fresh, the staff friendly.They prepare the fish fried.grilled or blackened. My wife had the Mahi Mahi blackened sandwich, I had the grouper platter. Both... More

We stood in line outside for a long time. That's a sign that this little restaurant is worth waiting for. The grouper sandwich was delicious and the fries are great. We'll be back.

This place is fantastic, a quaint little place where the seafood is prepared magically We eat there every time we visit Pompano Beach. It dosent matter how long the wait it is definitively worth it.Try the lobster bisque to start your meal you will be pleased.

If you like fresh from the ocean seafood prepared the way you like it, Fish Shack is where to go. My favorite is the fried cracked conch appetizer and grilled swordfish entree. This casual place is tiny with only a few tables and a small bar. At peak dining times you will have to wait for a table but it... More
