Quaint local eatery

My husband and I had dinner here with friends when we were visiting from Florida. He and I shared boiled shrimp with potatoes and corn on the cob. Great taste! Our friends had fried catfish and were very pleased with their meal. Love the casual atmosphere!

For a long time I avoided this place because it looks a little grungy on the outside but it always has a lot of customers so we thought we would try it. We love this place. They have consistently great food at reasonable prices. Whatever the "fish of the day" is can't be beat for freshness and value. Hats off... More

My mother decided to treat me, my wife, and in-laws to Fish Shack for takeout. Food was ready in about 10 minutes and we were in and out in about 3 minutes. Order was perfect for the 5 of us. The grilled scallops, rice , and veggies was excellent. My wife had crab cakes and they were also delicious. We... More

This is probably the best fish place in Plano. Not a large menu, but everything on it is great. Service is fast even when there is a crowd.

Four fried shrimp, small ones at that, and a small crab cake, with a side of coleslaw for nearly ten dollars? Expected a much more generous portion. Maybe it was an "off" night but wouldn't bother going back.

Come here Friday or Saturday night when things are really cooking; don't worry, the line to order moves very fast at this popular place. Best seafood around. Great prices. Well run family business. Selection of beer and wine.

Staying in the Plano area over from London, England we visited the Fish Shack on a Sunday evening and pleased we had made the trip. The Oysters were great and then the crab and shrimp excellent. Good honest quality ingredients put together simply. Definitely recommended and great value for money
