Nothing fancy but good food at a reasonable price with a diner atmosphere. A small restaurant with limited seating. The atmosphere is nothing fancy, but the employees are friendly, and the food was better than expected as we pulled up to the restaurant. A local person recommended this place and I'm glad we tried it.

Decided to give Sea Shack a try. Arrived before opening to discover a long line. The wait was well worth it. The blackened grouper was wonderful. Low key and relaxed atmospheric. Get the key lime pie to take home because you'll be too full to enjoy dessert. Will return!

This is a local hidden gem. If you're not looking for fancy and not spend a lot of money on seafood, then this is a place to go. This is a local secret for good seafood and lots of it. This is not a very large restaurant and can experience a wait in line should you arrive when everyone else... More

This place is fantastic. Evidenced by the always long line. Scallops are fantastic as is the crab cakes and hush puppies. A must at. LEAST TWICE during any visit to HH.

Off-season visit, so virtually no waiting. Hand-written menus with lots of combinations available. Very informal, main effort goes into preparing great seafood quickly. Anybody who doesn't like styrofoam plates just keep going. Those who value courteous, friendly service, fresh, delicious seafood, don't miss it! I put this hidden gem in two GPS units. Definitely plan to return. - AP

This place is a seafood joint. The wait can be out the door and down the walkway, but it is still a family favorite. The menu is located on a large chalkboard when you walk in, and you wait in line to give your order. The grilled salmon and mahi mahi are worth the extra time, and the fritters are... More

After reading rave reviews I was disappointed overall. The fried grouper was fresh and very good. The two sides were not good at all. Green beans were soft and tasteless. The beets were ok. Arrived at 12:15 and got right in. Hudsons is a much better choice for lunch or dinner

Most all other reviews capture the nature of this restaurant. No frills, not much ambiance, foam plates, just awesome food at reasonable prices. Went as our first stop on the island Saturday. Going again Tuesday. Shack attack is where it's at!!! Enjoy

I took some appetizers home to eat and they was very tasty.I liked the oysters and the crab cake was excellent. It was practically all meat with very little filler.

Dinner with 3 girlfriends. We finally picked a night when we could get in the door. Simple - no frills but excellent fish and seafood cooked while you wait. Fried,grilled or blackened all are wonderful. I had the grill red snapper - wonderful choice!

Thank cathy t
