We love beach outdoor restaurants with hood fried seafood. This hit all the marks except we were disappointed on taste. I had the grouper bites tacos. So many bites in the tacos that I never ate the tortillas, just the insides. Light batter, not greasy...More

We love Shark Shack! They have the best fish and shrimp tacos. My only issue and the reason I give them 4 stars instead of 5 is they don't have a phone number to take call in orders. If they had that- would be perfect!

We have had a second home on Bogue Banks for 15 years. About three years ago, we tried Shark Shack and have been hooked since. Although it is 6 miles from our house, we gladly pass by other restaurants to get Grouper Bites or the...More
