I love the Fish Shack. The fish is really tasty. They also have a wide variety of seafood like shrimp, oysters and crawfish. The atmosphere is casual. There are two separate dining areas with rolls of paper towels on the tables. There is not a lot of parking and can be really crowded during peak hours.

This is one of the best places for fried catfish, oysters, and shrimp around the area. Be sure and try their onion rings. They are light and not too much breading. Nice people that work here. There is another location on Plano Road in Richardson just south of Campbell Road. Never had a bad meal at either place.

Went for lunch for the first time in August and was surpirsed by the number of people there. There food was great but it can get crowded during the regular lunch period but any wait is worth it. Parking can get a little tough since ther isn't too much. All in all it is worth it.

Like others really wanted to like this place and was excited to find it. There was a steady line and prices were reasonable. Had scallops, yellow fin tuna and hot wings. Food was ok, nothing I'd come back for.

I had the gumbo yesterday and it was outstanding! I normally get the fried shrimp which is great but wanted something different and warm. This fit the bill perfectly!

This VERY casual eatery is all about good seafood. Great catfish, shrimp cocktail and cocoanut shrimp. Don't miss the hush puppies!

Great food, service and portions. Well priced!! Loved the onion rings and gumbo soup the most. The grilled trout was a little fishy but the salmon salad was great with a very nice sized portion of salmon. Will return for sure!! I want to go back and try the fish and chips!

Love this one! Fried oysters for me. Or the awesome ceviche. Perhaps the fish tacos. Oyster poboy... Love them all. Hubby always gets the fried catfish (even tho he reads the menu like he is considering something else). Fries, coleslaw, brews... Half and half sweet tea. Never disappoints.

It's busy with lines even at 9pm-that tells you something about the food. They handle it quite efficiently. I had the catfish, onion rings and fried pickles-all quite good. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked tasty and there's quite a variety of seafood.

There are many fish restaurants in Dallas area that serve fried/grilled fish, shrimps, scallops, and oysters. But I come here for their hot and spicy seafood soup. For about $8, you get a big bowl of tasty soup (clear broth), chunks of catfish, big shrimps, corn, cabbage, and potatoes. The place has charm, just like its name, a local fish... More
