Singleton's Seafood Shack Restaurant Review

: Singleton's is classic Old Florida---a big, weathered, ramshackle place on stilts with well-fed ducks and cats warily sharing space out front. Inside, you'll find a wonderful variety of fresh-off-the-boat seafood served on disposable plates at wide plank tables. Order a mess of fried shrimp (it's the absolute best) or grilled grouper or the feast-like low country boil, then wander over the plywood plank floors to a room just off the side dining area. Singleton's is where locals take out-of-town friends when they want to treat them to a place that's both good and authentic North Florida. Just remember the fish camp rule: order it broiled, boiled, grilled or fried and don't be tempted by elaborate sauces or trendy preparations. If you have your own catch of the day, you can also bring it in, and they’ll cook it up for you. Singleton's meals come with a choice of fried or boiled potatoes, black beans and rice, slaw and the vegetable of the day. Oh, and hush puppies, of course. The restaurant's peanut butter pie is a favorite but plan to take it home---you won't have room.
