First time going after being told how great the food was. Small place, 4 tables and 8 counter stools, but good turnover and worth the wait. Had the crab cake special and the shrimp and scallops burger. Both were delicious! Everything coming out of the kitchen looked amazing. Ended the meal with a very tasty key lime pie.

The oysters were fresh an excellent. My husband had fried fish and it was tasty. It is a very small rustic place mostly for adults. Do not recommend for a family with kids. No reservation accepted, and waiting time at least 15-20 min but it is worth it.

hmmm, I don't get it. Why is it so hard to get fresh fish in this area, that this little dumpy hole in the wall gets such great reviews. I guess people like this kind of low end place, but personally I don't like to have to SHOUT to the person sitting next to me because the noise level is... More

We have heard about the Fish Shack from numerous people so we finally had to check it out for ourselves. We were not disappointed!!! This place is a local little hole in the wall with great FRESH fish. When Dawn and I pulled into the parking lot there was quite the line to get in. Everyone we encountered said it... More
