Oh. My. Goodness! What a great meal I just had! I'm still sitting in the restaurant as I type this as I need to let all this food settle before I waddle out, lol. I had the lunch special, which came with two pieces of fried catfish, cold slaw, kidney beans, hush puppies and French fries. I did succumb to... More

Fish Shack is Family based Dining, offering a variety of "traditional" fish fare. They offer Crab legs on weekends. They are a bit pricey and portions run a bit small. Great couples or older groups, but really not small child oriented. Over all they are good for a change of pace.

I have eaten lunch here several times. The food is good and the service is good and friendly. They have good catfish and other plate lunches. I like their meatloaf.

We have frequented Fish Shack many times and my review would always be the same. Of course, the fish is my favorite. They will cook it to your request which is great. Prices are in comparison to other restaurants for fish plates. Great service. Closed on Mondays. 🙁

We went to West Plains for a nice dinner for my birthday at the end of 2016, and we were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was homey, the menu looked yummy and the food was great. I had fried shrimp, my husband and sister the fried chicken which I also wanted, and my brother-in-law had the fried catfish. Good, good good.... More

The fish is not the best I've had, but pretty good. If you go in for lunch you can get a nice plate, with sides for a good value.

Thoroughly enjoyed everything about this place. Everything from the savory catfish farm raised, to the yummy Green tomatoe relish; the attention to every microcosmic detail, and passion of the owner (who is friendly and on staff) is obvious. My meal was worth twice what I paid for it.
