My wife and I stopped in after a few hours on the beach. Loved the atmosphere and the people who run the place are top shelf friendly. I asked what they were famous for and was led to the Grouper bites. Very nice portion of delicious grouper in a bite form with french fries. They make all there own sauces... More

Best seafood around at good prices and large portions. Not a sit down restaurant but great place to eat.

My husband hadn't been able to find any grouper since we've been here but I found the Shark Shack through Trip Advisor. He had the grouper sandwich and I had the shrimp and grouper bites basket. This is just a small mom & pop place where you eat outside or take food to go but the food is very good... More

The Shark Shack has limited hours but it is so worth the wait! It's a little blue building that looks like a shack, literally. BUT the seafood we had was fresh and delicious! We had a fired shrimp basket and a grouper bites basket. The food was better than many fancier places I've been to. Go there! They have burgers... More

The Shark Shack is one of our favorites in Atlantic Beach. Today our sandwiches were a blackened mahi and a reuben grouper, both excellent, not to mention delicious cole slaw and hushpuppies. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We know they reduce their hours of operation after Labor Day, but we hope to visit them again in October. They... More

Super reasonable, local seafood baskets. Simple, inexpensive, and giant portions. Nice kids' menu and the burgers and dogs are also good. For me, the shrimp basket can't be beat. Good cocktail sauce, two handfuls of fried shrimp and tasty fries. They also have good salads!

The title sez it all .If only you had better operating hours and maybe some type of covering to protect your customers from possible rain . We travel a long way to get to Atlantic beach every year and your shop is a more than once stop once we get there. Your fish tacos are undescribale . This year it... More

Absolutely great lunch place. Fresh seafood done the right way, by people who very likely own the place and take pride in their cooking. The blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich was perfect. It is on my list to go back as often as I am in the area.
