The Shack in Fort Walton Beach

104 Miracle Strip Parkway SW

Fort Walton Beach, Florida


The culinary landscape of Fort Walton Beach is an exciting and everchanging one that has pleased visitors for years. Offering everything from haute cuisine to fast food and international delights, there’s a place for every taste and every culture. But the most popular choice by far has long been the casual waterfront seafood joint where the beers are cold, the crabs are tasty, and flipflops and board shorts are the dress code, and The Shack in Fort Walton Beach is one of the more popular examples! Open every day of the week from 11 AM until 8:30 or 9:00 PM, the prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Why not check it out?

Located at 104 Miracle Strip Parkway SW

From the outside, The Shack looks like most other seafood in Fort Walton Beach joints. Constructed of wood planks and offering patio seating on the water, the real beauty of this restaurant lies in the views and, of course, the delicious food served inside! The interior is casual, designed to make guests feel comfortable and a part of something special. You’ll find wood tables and chairs, wood floors, and picnic tables out on the deck. A full bar offers a drink for every taste: cold beer, smooth wines, and the sweet fruity flavors of the tropical drinks everyone falls in love with during their Florida getaway! The Shack may just end up being your home away from home, and that’s ok with us; we know you’ll be coming back to your cozy condo with The Breakers when the meal is done!

The Menu of The Shack in Fort Walton Beach

Seafood driven, as to be expected, the menu at The Shack is filled with all your favorite things: Bangin’ Shrimp on the appetizer menu, lobster crab cake sandwiches on the lunch menu, and steamed crab on the entrée menu. A kids’ menu offers a Shacky fried fish and fried shrimp dinner, but if your little “crabby” isn’t quite into seafood yet, it also lists the standard burger, chicken, and corn dogs! The dessert menu includes our Florida specialty, Key Lime Pie, and while we’ve had a lot of key lime pies over the years, and The Shack’s ranks up there at the top of our favorite list! Oh, and before we forget: If you don’t start out your meal at The Shack with a serving of their specialty, Shack Seafood Gumbolaya, your life will forever more be lacking something! The Shack offers some of the best seafood in Fort Walton Beach!
