Fish Shack in Pompano Beach
Met a friend here for dinner last night and was truly thinking my GPS had done me wrong on the way...Truly lives up to its name as a shack- ultimate dive with about 20 seats and amazingly fresh, well cooked seafood. We had perfectly chilled oysters, lightly breaded cracked conch, fish dip and $1.50 drafts! Service was so friendly- the chef/owner was out several times to say hi and check on everyone's food. This place is a find!!!

Had a wonderful meal here the other night. We arrived around 7:30 PM on a Friday and waited about 30 minutes for a table. There's no room to wait in the restaurant, but there are some comfortable chairs outside if it's warm, and since it was a little chilly, we waited in the car, and the waitress popped outside when there was room for us.
In addition to what's on the menu, they seem to have 2-3 fresh fish specials each night. Like many Florida restaurants you can choose how the fish is prepared; grilled, blackened, etc. I had blackened dolphin, with an excellent side salad and cole slaw and my DC had a bowl of clam chowder and fried oysters. We sat at the counter, which was conducive to sharing with other people, and we traded an oyster for a taste of cracked conch with a neighbor.
Excellent sauces, friendly waitstaff, $2 beers, delicious key lime pie, low prices, and quite possibly the best, freshest piece of fish I've ever had in Florida.
The $44 Dover Sole at City Fish Market the night before was delicious, but this $14 Dolphin platter was easily better.
Very chowish, very divey, great find.
