Da Fish Shack is in a premium location with a fabulous view. The food is good, drinks are good, fans to keep you cool in the heat. For cruise shippers, just a short walk from the port, stop in and have a drink before re-boarding your ship. If driving, there are 2 small parking lots, one on each side. The... More

Having read in the reviews that this place can become crowded and a bit boisterous later at night, we went with our two kids (age 10 and 11) at 5 pm on a Friday. It was quiet and there were only a few other groups there, most with kids. We enjoyed one of the fish specials and felt that the... More

Da Fish Shack doesn't sound like much, but the food is good and they have some interesting cocktails as well as the regular offerings. (This is an open air operation, so no AC.) I had Snapper Cayman Style (tomato, onions, peppers, nicely spiced) and shared appetizers. Was there on a Friday night and it was hard to get a table,... More

We sat looking out at the ocean with a beautiful sunset. The service was excellent. The food was good, but this is not connoisseur seafood. Go there for a nice break from the hotel food scene.

This little shack has a wonderful local ambience that is so needed downtown. The music is Caymanian, the views are spectacular, the lobster taco at 15 dollars was stunning... the rum punch was beautiful!! A great place to chill in Georgetown...

We decided to try Da Fish Shack as we were looking for seafood and a place where we could sit outside, overlooking the water. The place is small, but has great views and the food was also very good! Our server was very nice and friendly, and we all enjoyed the food and experience overall. Try it, you won't be... More

This place is literally in an old Fish Shack right next to the Docks in Georgetown . It's a great location for watching the nautical comings and goings of the Port. The place itself oozes atmosphere and I think is an essential stop off for any trip to the Island. I came here with family for the umpteenth time in... More

A very fun and casual (very casual) place to eat and drink. Located right on the water's edge the view is awesome, the service is great and the food what you would expect from a fish shack!
