This is our third time here in a couple weeks. We are locals, but live 25 minutes from here. But....we love it here and it's totally worth it. If you have company, this is the place to come! Outdoor, laid back seating....NO WAIT.

Shark Shack is an absolute favorite of mine in Atlantic Beach! Low key outdoor beach atmosphere with great seafood. The grouper bites and grouper wrap can't be beat. Delicious food at a reasonable price and large portions!

This place is the bomb! We eat here every time we come here. I love the shrimp and hush puppies and my wife loves the grouper bites with fries. If you're looking for fast, convenient, fried seafood this is your spot!

My husband and I both got blackened seafood tacos with hush puppies. The grouper was fresh and shrimp was delicious! Portions were big and we really enjoyed our meal. We will definitely be returning!

Great food and friendly. Our only regret was trying it on our last day at the beach. We would have eaten there more than once.
