So, can a seafood restaurant in historic downtown Vero Beach make it into the Lunch Box? Will this shack shackle the taste buds and be included in the working man's tool belt of lunch time specials?
Landing at my table I must say I was a bit $urprised at the menu. My wallet began to dive deeper into the dark waters of expen$e as I sailed the $eas of lunch meals well over ten dollar$. I was finding it hard to make a reasonable choice for a reasonable price. I asked for the lunch special menu and was even more surprised by prices that where as deep as Twenty League$ Under the $ea, being upwards of fifteen dollar$. After combing the menu I found what I thought was the most reasonable price and made my selection, The Shacktastic Sandwich at $11.95 all said and done.
As I sat awaiting one of the most expensive fish sandwiches I think I have ever had, I prepared my heart for disappointment. Then the waitress set this MASSIVE sandwich down in front of me. By far this was the largest catch I had ever experienced. This was no Filet-o-Fish! This Cod sandwich was the largest fish filet between two buns in any seafood establishment I have ever been. Topped with slaw and fries this sandwich is made for the Big Mouths! The meal came with a large pickle, fries, and side slaw all of which were of high standard and delicious. Anytime I can't finish all that's on my plate, I know it was a great meal.
So, The Fish Shack of Vero Beach has a outstanding atmosphere and fabulous tasting food. The only downside for the Lunch Box is the cost. The meals found at the Fish Shack are a bit out of our legal limit to catch, but Well worth every penny during the right season when a special lunch is called for.
Only because of the "High $ea", The Indian River Lunch Box gives the Fish Shack a 4/5 thumbs
