This is one of the highlights of the Ruskin, Florida area. Its on Shell Point road a few miles off highway 41 and worth while place to eat. People in the area know about the excellent food and service. Their is always a line to order because its so well know in the area.

This place is only open three days a week and has a line all three days. This modest shack with picnic tables has some of the best fried seafood I have eaten. A must have is the shrimp, not sure what makes it so special but it is out of this world. Not only were there tourists but locals too! Did I mention it was actually reasonably priced. What a hidden gem.

Traveled about an hour to check this place out and it was well worth the drive. Some of the best seafood we've had!!! Lightly battered and yummy. Be aware this is not a "fine dining" experience....far from it......you sit on picnic tables outside but with a cover overhead in case it rains.
This can really be fun if you enjoy talking to complete strangers (but all friendly with big smiles on their faces cause they're chomping on fantastic seafood!) The only negative is that on rainy days, the parking is very tight because the large parking lot on the west side of the building is mostly a mud hole that most cars don't dare park in. Other than that, I highly highly recommend a visit to this quirky dining experience. GREAT SEAFOOD !!!!! ..oh yeah, most importantly, remember they're only open three days a week - Thursday, Friday and Saturday !!!!!

While visiting my brother in Florida, we decided to order dinner to go from the fish house, What a surprise. This side of the road eatery doesn't amount to much. You can get it to go or eat outside on the picnic tables. Had the fried grouper and it was excellent. Others in the family had various forms of fish and shrimp and all enjoyed the meal. would definitely reccomend this little hole in the wall.
