Don't be surprised when you try them. There some of the best wings I've tried and I try wings all over. So it short... More

Looks can be deceiving, this little gem has great seafood! They offer a variety of seafood (boiled, grilled or fried). They also have po-boys, combo baskets, salads, and soups (including a very good gumbo) Favorites were the fried shrimp po-boy and crab cakes, but everything looked good. It's a small place, and they get very crowded at lunch and dinner.... More

Frank, the owner is super nice and friendly! First restaurant in the Dallas area! My son had the catfish special and it was delicious! We also shared a pound of boiled shrimp which was also very good. The fresh oysters were large, but not as briney as I would have liked. Great atmosphere and the staff was extra nice!

So when it first opened, we tried it on a Friday night and there was a line that ran between every aisle of tables with people standing over us while we ate. They have since doubled the size or more and added outdoor tables as well so I no longer have to guard my plate. Let me tell you that... More

This is one of our go to spots when we are craving fish & crab, the fresh grilled fish and gumbo are my favs. My wife loves the big platter with corn, potatoes, fried shrimp & clams, crab legs. The line is usually long but it moves fast, see you soon fish shack !! Keep up the great work !!

Order at counter, get your beverage and take a seat. You will be promptly served as soon as your order is cooked/prepared. Choice of indoor or al fresco seating though the audio/visual is the traffic on 15 th Street and not crashing surf. The food is reliably tasty and portions generous. Not everything is fried...seafood is also served baked or... More

This place is always packed. Sometimes we go off hours to miss the crowd. My husband almost always gets the pound of boiled shrimp, but I have tried the fish tacos, fried catfish, oysters, calamari...you name it, its all good. Decor is cute and service is good.

Decent fried fish and shrimp. Batter is straight cornmeal without any flour or batter so it can be gritty id that is not your style. Somewhat cramped and small space but better during Speing and Fall when you can make use of outdoor spaces.

Love to eat here. They have a lot to choose from. They have fried plates (fish and shrimp) and they also have baked fish if you're not into fried food. They have salads and shrimp cocktails as well, so there really is a lot to choose from. When you walk in, you order at the counter, pay, and then they... More
