Description: Down old highway A1A in Palm Coast, you will find a cozy place known as 'The Hammock' of the Palm Coast. There, nestled beneath large oak trees on a barrier island is a little out of the way place we call 'The Shack'.. Or JT's Seafood Shack! Friendly, attentive service and a casual atmosphere make JT's a favorite for locals and for those just passing through. No pretense, just good Florida Fish Camp style eatin'. This means large helpings of our freshly caught Shrimp and Crab which come in our World Famous (and traditional-styled) Crab Pots and Shrimp Pots. Pair that with one of our 12 ounce Rib Eye, Crab Cakes, Baby Back Ribs or Southwestern Chicken and you've got yourself a real meal. Our other specialties and local favorites include our large variety of Burgers, Sandwiches/Wraps, and Fish Tacos. The 'Shack', With its tin roof and wood doors features only fresh Oysters and Shrimp, Fish and Crab Cakes- all cooked to your liking. Our creative chefs have a license to delight. Our inventive menu puts on display all the best cuisine of the Atlantic Coastal Plain through the Florida Pan Handle. It's the perfect place for your lunch getaway and for a dining out for dinner! Nobody beats our generous daily 3-6pm Happy Hour. Looking for a casual place to eat and a guaranteed treat? Come on down to The Shack... We'll have ya at JT's Seafood Shack!

“Nice and casual seafood place!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

We enjoyed our meal at JT's. We arrived for an early dinner and waited about twenty minutes for a table on the patio which was very nice. The service was pretty good and the food was great. We had fried shrimp (excellent) a generous salad (very good), one of the kids had dessert for dinner and the brownie sundae was really more sundae than brownie but really good.

We will return next time we are in the area.

“Excellent steamed crabs”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

We ate in the patio which was more open for a group our size (11). The Crab Pot was excellent and the fried shrimp outstanding. The Gouda Cheese bits tasted great. I had the Shrimp Grits which were somewhat disappointing and I would not recommend them.
The food was a little overpriced but not out of line with other seafood restaurants catering to vacation goers.

“Bit pricey for the quality of food, but okay”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Used to go here and get my regular of conch fritters and Minorchan chowder. Last couple of times the fritters were more fritter than conch and the chowder was more potato than seafood. Might try again and see...

“Great seafood with excellent staff”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Went to JT's with wife, teenagers, and one autistic child who are all picky eaters. The place is not much more than a shack from the outside but don't let that fool you as the inside was clean and comfortable. Only had to wait about 10 minutes, they will call or text you on your phone to let you know your table is ready. We were waited on immediately and after telling them we had an upset autistic child they said they would make sure they got our orde in right away. Food came in about 15 minutes, everything was correct, and looked good. My wife had the tilapia which had good seasoning and was moist. Teenagers and myself had shrimp and fries that were plump and tasty. My ate the chicken strips that we're a nice size. As he has autism and is very particular about his chicken strips they must have tasted goods. Overall the experience was great, I commend the staff on the food and how they handled our families needs. If i had any negative it would be parking which was scarce due to amount of people. We will definitely go back and recommend it.

“Wanted to love it”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

I went late in the evening, the kitchen was only going to be open for another 30 minutes. I ordered steamed clams, they came out all dried up, and not very appetizing. I should have sent them back but I didn't. The atmosphere was great, love it. I would go back and try it one more time and maybe try something else.
