We arrived at 5:20 pm and we were lined up across the front of the building. We waited 25 minutes to get in the door. Service was good but not exceptional but the food was good. You need to try their sweet potato cornbread, it tastes like a dessert. I had the grouper dinner, my wife had the scallops and they were very large and were the best she's had.

If you don't mind lining up outside, being 'ordered in' at 4 or 8 at a time, told to go to the back of the line even though you 'called it in', having your order wrong on two separate occasions (sarcastically told you can't get Fish & Chips wrong AND THEY DID)! Over cooked fish, someone who does not speak or understand good English at the end of the phone), argued with over what you ordered!! (whatever happened to the customer culture in the USA)? - apart from that it's fine. Probably wont go again though - very rude people!

Yummo! We waited in line about 45 minutes and it was well worth it!! I am gluten free and thought i would risk something grilled... i got jerk grouper, glazed carrots and salad. It was the best fish! Others in my party ordered the blackened shack attack and a fried shack attack, they raved over it! This place is a small, casual restaurant that is just good food! Highly recommended!!

Everyone else is right. No frills tasty seafood. We got there right at 11 when they opened so we ordered right away and both had the Shack Attack. grilled fish, shrimp, oysters and some of the best crab cake and scallops I have had. HUGE scallops, each one was 4 bites. Came with hush puppies and 2 sides. Everything was fantastic. We will be back later this week!

We hadn't been here in two years but decided to try it this year. They have cleaned up the place since then. The food is still good. Lots of variety across grilled, blackened, fried seafood options. Not too long a wait when we were there in late August. Kids meal choices were solid. The air conditioning system inside is much improved since we were there last. The place is no frills with plastic tablecloths, plastic plate ware, and styrofoam cups. Don't go here if you are looking for gourmet ambiance. The word 'shack' says it all in terms of the surroundings but the food is good. Don't go there if you don't eat seafood!
