The Food Shack in Jupiter is hidden in the back of a shopping center off US 1, but it is truly worth finding. We arrived at this restaurant around 5:00 pm after spending the day on Peanut Island. There were nine in our party: Grandchildren, daughter and Gwen and I. The restaurant is small and does not take reservations; the maitre d' said we would have to wait about 45 minutes. Gwen and I and the oldest granddaughter, Senior at Peace College, walked next door to the adjoining bar and ordered a bottle of Esperto Pinot Grigio from France’s Burgundy region. BTW, the wine list was excellent. Since our party was so large, we had to wait a little longer than 45 minutes; we soon found out it was surely worth it. The food was excellent: Wahoo, shrimp, scallops, sweet and spicy fish and chicken fingers, grilled cheese, Romaine Salad, Oyster Salad and Creme Brulee Chzcake. The service and decor was also excellent. This is a number one superb restaurant; we'll be back!!!

We went as a group to this relatively small establishment and grabbed the last table before the lunch rush filled the walls to overflowing. There were people waiting outside. Each day the chefs prepare a list of dishes that fills an 11x14 sheet of paper. There are "shackatizers, worldly plates" and a dozen treats "for the sweet tooth". I had the Red Beet-Almond-Herb crusted yellowtail fish, served over a tasty Romaine Caesar. Outstanding!! The others in my party voiced the same about their meals. All dishes we saw in passing were dinner size portions. And the number of patrons is testimony of the quality and taste of the dishes. Next time we're in Florida we'll be heading down to Jupiter. Check hours and days of service on their website.

The Food Shack is one of the very best restaurants in Florida. The menu is
imaginative and delicious. Portions are generous and service is wonderful. This restaurant, along with Leftovers which has a similar menu, is not to be missed.

Any opportunity of being within a one hour drive of Jupiter, we head to Food Shack. There is no place better for fish than Food Shack and the place spoils one for any other seafood restaurant. I try to beat the crowds and eat there on a week day in mid afternoon. The fish is sparklingly fresh and the various recipes used in preparation over greens and mango salsa should be classified as a sin they are so wonderful. The portions served are large and reasonably priced. When Wahoo is available, it is my preferred choice and makes my mouth water thinking about it. Tourists should avoid the food shack so there is more room for the rest of us! Food Shack reigns supreme!

Have been to this restaurant for curiosity and found food was great. Casual atmosphere ,but, food was outstanding. Price is reasonable. One of the best seafood restaurant in the area. Capt.Charlies Reef Seafood Restaurant in Juno Beach still our first choice.
