    Local here. The service was good. The appetizer was way over priced for how bland and small it was. The drinks were small pours for a lot of cash. I wouldn’t do it again.

    Highly recommend staying in one of the fish shacks during the time they have them available. It provides the perfect ambiance for catching up with friends and maybe even playing some card games if you have them available to you. The food was really good as well. Try to make it in time for happy hour :)

    This was a unique dining experience in the fish shacks. Very enjoyable. The food was good but pricey so you’re paying for ambiance. But a very nice different day out. It’s limited for time if you’re in the fish shacks and they may strictly enforce it when it’s super busy. Nice for a change and fun to do

    The fish shacks are a great spot to enjoy dinner with friends. Only issue - appetizers and dinner ordered together and asked for apps first - everything delivered at same time. Kitchen or server mistake? Server was personable, food good but limited compared to Portland Batson.

    The worst! Little menu choice, small portions, weak drinks, flat beer more like roadhouse style there were barely any Brussel sprouts in a petri-like dish for $13 but the ones there tasted good.The $15 chicken sandwich came with nothing but a very warm soggy pickle. The $14 cocktail tasted only of tart pomegranate juice. The $8 Pils was flat with no developed flavor.When we asked for the check, the server requested our payment. What, no tab to review!? She awkwardly passed me her hand-held -was I to get trained on its use now? I was surprised by a $25 shack fee. The site states a $25 reservation fee, normally a fee to assure you show & charged when you don't. That needs to be explained or re-named shack occupancy fee.

    We enjoyed dining out in the fish shack. We sampled a little bit of everything on the menu. We dined with our 10 & 13 year old kids. It was a fun experience and something different to do in the middle of February. The cornbread appetizer was delicious! Almost like dessert!

    Reserved an adorable fish shack, as I'm still worried about COVID. Shack was super cute and cozy; service was attentive; food came out quickly and was delicious. The club music feels a little weird as the background, but definitely worth a trip nonetheless!

    We chose the fish shack for a special evening. The overall experience was good. The menu seemed limited. I’m not sure if it was because of the season or if there are limited options in the fish shacks.
