If you want fine China and white linens this isn't place for you. It really is a shack of a place but what draws people is you can get fresh seafood, a variety of side dishes and get them at the best price on the island. It opens at 5 pm and there will be a line of people waiting when the door opens because the indoor seating is limited. Its a cafeteria style place where you order your food and then find a table. The food will be brought to your table. It will be served on disposable plates with plastic flatware. Again, this is not a fancy place but it has great seadfood and a fair price.

While visting friends in Hilton Head, they suggested lunch at the Sea Shack. This appropriately named establishment is not much on looks but the seafood is fresh and well prepared for a diner style restaurant. Service from the order-taker to the waitress was surly but not abrasive. Three of us had the fried shrimp diinner with two sides. The medium size shrimp were well prepared and the collards and macaroni/cheese sides that I had were pretty tasty to this southern boy. The tab before tip for the four of us was $65 - a little pricey for diner food at lunchtime since we all had tea to drink (no alcohol). There was probably cheaper alternatives off the island but like most visitors, we opted to stay close and pay a little more than it was really worth.

Really good food. As others have posted, there is a waiting line but it is worth the wait. Prices is very resonable. Would recommend this place to any seafood lover. :)

When they named it "Shack" they weren't kidding. The seafood is good and plentiful but the sides remind you of the high school cafeteria. Avoid long lines by going early.
