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.

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

True local hole in the wall with a small counter area and maybe half dozen tables. Food is fresh and very well prepared at a very fair price. Many entrees are fried, but they will prepare it however you like it. Many if not most...More

The food here is excellent. Just a small hole in the wall but the fish is always fresh and perfect. The locals love this place.
