This is not to bash the establishment but just a constructive criticism.

The restaurant is located on the waterfront area, nice view and good lunch spot. Menu is pretty average.

I dined here with a friend. Location was nice but the service was very spotty. We sat ourselves to a table. The waitress came with menu and didn't even offer to clean the table. Ok fine.

She took our orders, and never once offered water. I asked for water and I guess she didnt hear so I had to do it again and when she did, she basically sat a plastic bottle on the table. Didn't even bring a glass along which is kind of tacky?

The meals were average and presentation was really underwhelming.

While our meals were served on time, our waitress brought our main dishes not long after she presented our appetizers, which is a bit odd, since by standard you serve main after the guest is finished with appetizers.

It's the small things that makes an experience memorable.

We walked from the Marriott and it took about 20 minutes, we were looking for fish dip. The smoked salmon dip was served with breadfruit fries, so yummy.
The fresh catch of the day served your way was fantastic. I chose grilled red snapper~ phenomenally fresh and delicious! Our waitress was the best we had on the island, she had a sense of urgency to keep our beers filled! Try the Caybrew or white tip. You can sit right by the water on the deck, very beautiful scenery.

We were driving by and passed the restaurant so decided to come back for dinner. The restaurant is located on the waterfront and the ambiance is very nice.

The food itself was average - the prices in grand cayman are generally high, and a lot higher than the quality of food which is served. Same thing in this restaurant, the food is decent but definitely not worth the price paid. we ordered fish and chips, which were decent, fish salad, which was ok, and cheese platter which was not good.

We stopped in Grand Cayman for a snorkeling shore excursion on a cruise ship and had lunch at Da Fish Shack. The food was delicious, fresh, and local cuisine. The "Fish Tea" soup and sauces had just the right amount of spice. Being on the water made for a lovely outside dining experience. Paige was our server and very attentive. She also made delicious suggestions from the menu.Even though it's not right at the port stop, the walk was easy and well worth it. Next time we're in Grand Cayman, we'll be back!
