Lovely food enjoyed by all

Nice cool little place where you see the grill as you walk in the door and they are cooking steaks and flipping juicy burgers. Our party of 6 had a max of steak meals, burgers and one had fajitas. We all very much enjoyed it and will hopefully get another visit during our holiday to this place... read more

We had Taco's and a prawn cocktail to start with …… the taco was good but we have had better and the prawn cocktail was not chilled enough and the greens weren't as crispy and fresh as we like ……. For mains we... More

Their All American burger is better than any American burger I've ever had! Fair $. We had bacon wrapped asparagus w aioli for starters and burgers for our main. American setup, service was efficient, and good level of English. This place is the best Western/American food we've had during our 3 week stay ! Definitely worth a visit :)

If you are hanging out for a good steak while you are here, then look no further. Cooked to perfection, juicy and tender. And great service.

Wonderful food and service. I wouldn't have gone in this restaurant if I hadn't seen the good reviews as it was a bit rough and ready but so glad we ate there as the food was superb - we ate there twice in 3 days as it was so good.

If you are on holiday and are getting sick of Thai food this place is definitely worth a visit! Myself and my boyfriend recently visited and my starter (chilli con carne) was absolutely amazing... The best I've ever had! Whoever makes that I need the recipe. My boyfriend had the crab fish cakes and do really enjoyed them. We both... More

Although we're loving the local food here in Bophut, sometimes you fancy something different. We've eaten at The Shack twice since we've been here and both times have been fantastic! The quality of their steak is extraordinary and it's been perfectly cooked both times. We've already booked for our final night in Fisherman's Village on Friday night... Highly recommend you...

Unfortunately Larry the manager/owner passed away last August and the character has changed. Larry had a good persona and was always talking to guests both new and old. Now this has been lost, but the steaks are still excellent
