Great Local Spot

The food was wonderful, service great & the atmosphere homey on the inside, relaxing on the outside overlooking the river. It's no wonder they've been in business over 40 years!!

My husband and I found this restaurant kind of by accident a few months ago when we were spending a few nights at the beach. It was getting on to dusk, we stopped to eat here. It's situated on the intracoastal. We asked for outside seating, and were right next to the water, we watched the sun go down while... More

We were just having a lazy day. Driving back from Melbourne to Vero Beach on US 1 and saw this place on the intra-coastal waterway, lots a cars always a good sign. Looks like a local hangout far away from the hustle and chain restaurants that line I95. We were greeted promptly and given a table inside with a view... More

We recently ate at the shack with a teenager who is a vegetarian. The waitress was very informative and helpful. She helped to provide a meal for the vegetarian in our family and a wonderful eating experience for all. My husband and I had the prime rib. It was delicious! The prices are very reasonable. We ate in the outside... More

I can't say my stuffed flounder was the best ever, but the service was! Nice atmosphere & a good selection of entrees, but we thought it was a bit pricey. Nonetheless, the food was fresh & tasty; the salads were crispy. The clam chowder was exceptional. They brought our 2 birthday boys a gooey brownie & enough forks that we... More

We've really enjoyed The Shack over the few years we've been wintering in Palm Bay. There are a number of really good restaurants in the area, also outside of Palm Bay, and I would say you can't go wrong with The Shack. Fresh, fresh seafood, Good sized portions, and a great selection on the menu and the bar.Very casual, sit... More

We've been to The Shack at least a dozen times now-- we were introduced to it by friends in the area-- and it's become our "go to" restaurant when we're in that part of Florida. The seafood is excellent, the prime rib usually first-rate (but ask the waiter about it before ordering; they are quite honest in their opinions of... More

The Shack has been a family favorite for many years--in fact, before we moved here our family brought us here for introductory dinner. The atmosphere, the food, the drinks, are all top notch. We've been there for lunch, drinks, dinner==even for many New Year's Eve holidays. Their seafood, steaks, and appetizers are always of the best and freshest quality! We... More

My husband and I tried The Shack and totally loved it. Mad about all those years we didn't stop in. All those wasted opportunities. But we'll make up for lost time. The view is beautiful. There are not enough good restaurants with such a lovely view of the Intercoastal. The decor is amazing. A real seafood restaurant. The bar area... More

I went there last month while on vacation and didn't think the food was that great and the services was pretty crappy. I would not visit this place again.
