looks are very deceiving. This place looks nothing like the food taste. I ate there twice in one day. The vibe can be a bit confusing,no menu posted.If you are kind of a paranoid individual,then you may want to go with a local,like your driver or tour guide. You in a real local hang out,and they can be a bit... More

I love going to the shack when I'm here, getting great freshly cooked local produce, in a great environment, Who knows you could even meet a few famous Artists passing through like i have (Jah Cure and Sizzla).

The atmosphere is definitely of a local flavor & definitely cultural flavor as the area is totally filled with Jamaican's and little shop's, bars & local restaurants, such as the 1 i always get breakfast in the morning, but for great sea...

Loved the authentic Jamaican environment! It really is a shack on the beach! The Red Snapper (fried) was very good. My husband loved the lobster tails. The staff was friendly.

The Lobster shack was amazing. We went on a trip back from the blue hole. You are offered lobster, fish, or both. Of course I went for both! The table was then adorned with breads, topping, etc. When the meal came out I was surprised. A HUGE platter of lobsters with red sauce that my husband and I could barely... More

Not fine dinning but great fresh local food. The lobster was so good, a dozen lobster tails for 20USD can't pass that price up! Go hungry and get ready to stuff your mouth, you may order another dozen like I saw many other couples do, wash it down with the locals favorite beer Red Stripe!

We found this wonderful restaurant by accident, but what a find! We were looking for someplace to eat dinner other than our hotel, which we were getting a little tired of, so we asked our taxi driver to take us somewhere romantic and quiet and we ended up at Lobster Shack. This isn't a typical restaurant because it's outside, but... More
