True to its name, this restaurant is tiny, but the food packs a huge taste. Everything is fresh. So many choices and they will even cook your own catch. Fresh specials everyday. If you are on the East Coast and you like casual - this is a must stop.

This is the best kept secret in all of South Florida. Thank God it's hard to find because it would be even harder to get in than it already is. The owner mike has a brother in the fresh seafood business and always has the freshest of seafoods.

A small neighborhood restaurant with exceptionally fresh fish prepared to perfection. Cole slaw and French fries are my favorite accompaniment. Arrive early since word of mouth has made this place quite busy, deservidly so. This is not Gourmet dining as the term "Shack " would indicate however the preparation and quality are tops.

First time going after being told how great the food was. Small place, 4 tables and 8 counter stools, but good turnover and worth the wait. Had the crab cake special and the shrimp and scallops burger. Both were delicious! Everything coming out of the kitchen looked amazing. Ended the meal with a very tasty key lime pie.

The oysters were fresh an excellent. My husband had fried fish and it was tasty. It is a very small rustic place mostly for adults. Do not recommend for a family with kids. No reservation accepted, and waiting time at least 15-20 min but it is worth it.
