Extremely small dining room with superb fish and chips. Daily specials, $2 tap beers. Swordfish was excellent. Worth the wait. Hard to find, behind the main road, off the beaten path.

I saw an article about this place in the newspaper and it sounded like the kind of small place I would like. My girlfriend and I went there for lunch and she had the Mahi sandwich while I had the lobster bisque and Mahi fingers....More

Now this is a place for fresh simple fish dishes. Easy, light, cool owners and solid food make this a great place for lunch. Should probably take out because there isn’t much room to sit and eat.

Made a stop by the fish shack and my wife and I had a crab cashew platter which wad wonderful. The cole slaw had a sort of powder texture to it but the key lime pie more than made up for that.

Great crab cakes, service, and atmosphere. Only seating for about 20 people at a time. We would have never found this place on our own.

What a great restaurant. Excellent food. Fritters were awesome. Grilled mahi was excellent as well. Took my wife here on a date. Nothing fancy but we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Would highly recommend.

Kudos to Trip Advisor for this find. Don't let the inside or outside fool you. A 20 seat place that serves the freshest fish you'll get in Ft. Lauderdale. We had the cracked conk, hog fish and scallops. The coleslaw & fries are awesome too....More
