Excellent service and fantastic food! I had the fresh grouper, my wife had a salad with Mahi Mahi and our son had the fried combo. everything tasted great and the service was superb. Space is very tight with just 4 tables and few stools at the bar so come way and be patient, it is worth the wait.

Three of our family went to the Fish Shack on the recommendation of a friend who is a resident in the area. We are from upstate NY and were eagerly looking forward to having fresh seafood. We ordered the fried clams,fried oysters and the fish dip. Of the three orders, the fish dip was outstanding, but the other two were... More

We eat there often. The only problem is getting a table or a place at the bar. The place is very small, so go early for lunch or dinner. From the outside you would think no way, but once you eat there you will want to come back as all the seafood is fresh and well prepared. Beer and Wine... More

We’ve eaten hear twice, with great food each time. This “whole in a wall” fish house is well worth finding. It only seats 14 at tables and 8 at a bar so you may be waiting 10-20 minute to get in, but you will be happy you did. The first time I was there on 6/27/16 I ordered the smoked... More

This place is small but worth the trip. Fresh seafood at its best. We ate lunch here, both having the Grouper sandwich, with fresh tomatoes and lettuce on a super soft bun. Best grouper sandwich in the area. Cold beer on draft, in which they only carry Budweiser. We actually sat at the bar to order not many tables. Very... More

Fresh and large portions of fish at reasonable prices. I ordered catch of the day, which was hog fish for $23.95. Not a bad price at most restaurants, but this is a hole in the wall. The meal included; a wedge of lettuce with a slice of tomato and white rice ( NO VEGETABLES). In their defense, most fish platters... More

It is difficult to experience anything but a lovely dinner at the Fish Shack. The food is prepared with care and love. It is an old fashioned seafood shack in a dated strip mall. As soon as I entered and smelled the fresh seafood, I felt right at home. The chef and wait staff make you feel like you are... More
