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!

Very small place with limited seating so plan on waiting outside if you do not get there early or between lunch and dinner hours. The wait will definitely be worth it. Probably the best and freshest seafood anywhere. Great staff. A great find tucked away in a small strip center.

Recommended by several people so we gave it a try. Very satisfied. Real good food,seasoned well. Not your typical onion,garlic that you find in many restaurants. The favors were pure. Coleslaw,tartar and yellow rice were pure. These people know how to cook! Their food has flavor!

Today was the last day in Florida for my wife and me. We read the reviews about Fish Shack so we tried it for lunch. At lunch we had the grilled mahi, shrimp and scallops platter as well as the fish and chips. The grilled platter was divine. We had it blackened and I would highly recommend that. The fish... More

Arrived at 11:15 for lunch and were first in line, but all tables were taken by 11:40 on a Wednesday. Split a fish and chips and blackened seafood combo with slaw and fries. Everything was cooked to perfection, but the blackened scallops, shrimp and mahi were out of this world. Would highly recommend this plate. Will definitely return to this... More

When we arrived at the destination in this small mall we were not sure we were in the right place until we saw the sign Fish Shack... Seating is very limited and when full they take your name and you wait outside on benches... BUT the seafood is just great... We had the full clams, I saw other plates of... More

Sometimes great things come in small packages - this restaurant is the perfect example. The seating is limited but the food is exceptional! If you are looking for that homemade seafood you have been dreaming about look no further. RUN do not walk to get your seat at this restaurant.

Excellent seafood - may be turned off when u see restaurant. ambiance is nothing to write home about but best grouper sandwich and can't beat price. Extremely small restaurant in small strip mall off beaten path with only 5 tables and counter service. Food 4 stars and ambiance 2 stars.
