Sat down and ordered the crab nachos... they were ok but no spice to them at all. Very bland. I asked for salsa and they don't have it. Ordered a mango margarita and the server asked if it was ok that it was frozen. No problem. I got my margarita half frozen. I've never been served a margarita that wasn't... More

Sat on the water and had dinner. It was fabulous. Had the fish and chips and shrimp dinner. 3 large pieces of fresh fish and the shrimp were delicious. The view was wonderful nice breeze off the water. Server was very friendly. Would recommend to anyone wanting fresh fish.

What a great day to sit outside, enjoy the waterway and have a wonderful lunch. The smoked Mahi dip was great and the fresh oysters were delicious. Hubby had blackened shrimp on his salad and he said they were great. I enjoyed lobster mac & cheese. The only drawback was the traffic but that may have been because of the... More

Nothing really special.. wife had fried grouper- not very tasty. I had broiled grouper -- too salty! Food was just ordinary, nothing special for the price!!

Our 'college' reunion [60th] group of 14 sat around a circular table and enjoyed seafood! Our young server, Hannah, was terrific! How she went from scribbled notes, to the correct meals & to the correct separate billing, was a remarkable achievement!! I think we all had something different and when I inquired at the finish, all gave me a thumbs... More

We ate supper here on our kids' last night in Florida. The wait was long, even after we were seated. It's like the kitchen can't keep up with the demand. We got to watch the sun set as we waited. The food was good when it finally came. Their Fish & chips is Hog fish which is a very good... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. We went in the evening. Great Grouper meal. Wife had shrimp scampie & said it was tremendous. Very busy but seated quickly. Meal alittle slow but worth the wait. We found that a lot of folks go out to eat at places like this for the meal & sunset view. If you wait til... More

Nice outside seating, terrific wait staff, great chowder and overall a good experience. Ordered the Grouper medium and it came over cooked and that was disappointing. No baked potato option which would have been nice. Vegetables were also over cooked. Don't know if it's the quality of the chef/cooks, but it would be great if your meal wasn't over cooked.

The new regime at the Seafood Shack has done very well. The place is re-modeled and they have a new menu. The service is good and the water is deep for your docking needs.
