    Ordered delivery as a special treat for lunch. Clam chowder: very little clam meat or flavor, but okay. Fried oysters: good. Crab cake: yuck, way too much salt and a ton of something (tarragon?) that made it inedible. And the crab cake alone was $18! Oh, also listed as "crab cakes" but only one arrived. Will never spend a cent here again. What a shame.

    Most Improved Player

    I give downstairs at BLT Fish the Most Improved Player award. The menu has been recently revised to include more choices of simple grilled and fried fish, the sides are great, beer as always is local and fresh, and that bread! Will put on regular rotation.

    Worst Service I have EVER received

    I made a reservation for BLT Fish Shack for 7:45. We did not get seated until 8:45- 1 full hour or waiting. After waiting for so long, we were very eager to order our food. Our waitress did not come over for about 10 minutes. We then waited for another 25 minutes to receive our food. The clam showder was watery and had a gross smoky taste, shrimp cocktail was decent at best, the mussels were the only good thing I ate. All in all, I will NEVER return to BLT Fish shack as the wait was not worth it at all.

    Their sides are amazing - I had them all!! Next time I'm trying their specials - to be continued

    The raw bar has an amazing selection. Their seafood is wild! It took me a while to find a restaurant that has "organic seafood"! Their garlic bread is topped w/ melted cheddar (and I'm a cheese lover). My boyfriend had their Lettuce wedge & Blue Cheese, and I had their Caesar Salad, we also shared a Field Green Salad - they were all good! I love their clam chowder- it has bacon in it! We didn't have a complete meal, insteade we shared a lot: Corn-on-the-Cob (w/ garlic butter & salt - was amazing), Roasted Potatoes, their Old Bay seasoned Fries (I like them w/ ketchup & mayo mixed together), the rice pilaf was interesting - it was a mix of different types of rice, and tasted gread w/ that whole green cardamom! The sweet onion strings seasoned w/ salt & Old Bay were a bit spicy, but great, the grilled asparagus were seasoned w/ salt, olive oil, pepper & parsley (which I love -good for the eyes). String Beans (sauteed w/ red onions, garlic, salt, pepper & salt), their coleslaw was awsome too - it was very creamy! We just wanted to try a lot of different things, and it was great! Unfortunately, we didn't have a complete dinner.... The next time I go back, I'll deff try their specials :)

    I want to love this place, so I've been like four times. I want it to be what it wants to be--a cute, Cape Cod-y fish shack! But it's just not good. The fish isn't good, the shrimp is worse, the ice tea is meh. I have actually sent things back for a replacement order, something I have NEVER done at any restaurant. But seriously, what was that frozen Chinese farm shrimp? Why would you even purchase food for your kitchen of such terrible quality? This might as well be Burger King. Oh--the corn on the cob? For how many weeks had that thing been sitting in a pot of tepid water? The service varies from great to terrible, and the frying of foods is simply not well done. I've eaten upstairs and loved it, but downstairs, with the execrable lobster roll, is a total rip-off. And there's nothing I want more than a decent fish shack in this town.

    The Worst!

    This place hands down has the worst fried fish and shrimp I have ever tasted. You get more grease and breading than you do fish and shrimp. Talk about heart attack on a plate. They might as well have just given me a box of grease (I ordered takeout). And the french fries, oh my god! They were small, flimsy and way too greasy. I felt like suing just to get my thirtysix dollars back (that's for two people). And to top it off they had the nerve to put two fried, stuffed peppers in the box (at first I thought it was two fried mice) to make it look like more food than it actually was. Did I mention that the fish was very small. Definitely not worth the price of eighteen dollars for the Fish, Shrimp & Chips Combo. You get two small fish, three shrimp, two peppers and fries. People, don't do it!
