Fantastic!! This place is the best place to go for seafood. A must try. Small restaurant and always a waiting line. The service was super efficient for being so busy. The waitress told us that this was nothing, there is usually a 2 hour wait at night and weekends especially during season. So worth it!! I don't usually eat fried... More

From the exterior looks I wouldn't have gone in on a dare! But, TA had good reviews and we gave it a chance. I'm glad we did. The Fish Shack is off the main road in a strip center near a neighborhood. First thing you notice are people waiting outside. Step inside and give your name to a waitress, she'll... More

Great fish dishes. Everything is fresh caught daily. If you like conch - you've got to try their conch fritters. It's small and there is often a wait, but great little restaurant hidden in an old little strip mall.

We have eaten here several times. I even go in and eat there by myself and sit up at the counter. Their seafood is consistently fresh and delicious. I love their fresh fish selections. I have heard they have good burgers and wings but when I go it is for seafood! Their location and atmosphere could be better. Their service... More

Heard about this little neighborhood place, finally went. I cannot wait to go back. Prepared FRESH seafood, service very friendly. Very small, line up for service-well worth it.

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to try. The food was Okay. The fish was fresh and tasty but otherwise everything was mediocre. Frozen french fries Cesar' salad with no dressing etc. What's really disturbing was the place itself. 6pm on a weekday we had to wait more than 30 minutes for the table as there're only two... More

One of our favorite restaurants. Just great seafood that has us coming back for more. The best oysters we have ever had. Service is always good. Enjoy.

They serve definetely the most fresh and delicious seafood in Pompano beach! I am a fan of their grilled scallops, but check their daily specials in every visit. Restaurant is very tiny and not fancy, it is all about good food. It is quiet busy during peak hours, but worth to wait!

Thank mysnowglobes
