This is a real gem that the locals know about and enjoy; a truly wonderful place. GREAT seafood, if you like deep fried seafood.

This restaurant has fresh, made to order seafood. Don't expect anything fancy as they only have picnic benches under cover, but it is good food. Try the soft shell crabs!!! They are only open I think on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

When you're heading to the beach resort at Little Harbor, keep an eye on the south side of the road. You will see a simple "shack", with picnic tables outside and a long line of hungry people. This is the "Fish House" or "Fish Shack",...More

Fish Shack has a layback feel, a rustic decor that's maintained. The staff is friendly with a menu that is a seafood delight. I had the special and ice tea.

Do not go when raining or right after......lots of mud, puddles and mud! Lots of locals.....why heat up the kitchen when you can get your fish here. Large portions, decent sides. Outside seating only, close to Sun City Center.

This is an outdoor seafood restaurant with a roof over it for shelter. The food is good . I recommend the homemade fried potato chips and all the food is good.

A moderate selection of fish meals all well prepared & priced right. Don't look for decor or table service. Outdoor seating, went there several times always seemed busy. Definitely worth a stop

I enjoy this place. It's a family run fish place. Hard to find and in the middle of nowhere. You have to take the food to go or eat at picnic tables outside. It's mostly a local place and mostly fried but very good. And...More
