Stopped in for lunch with a business partner while en route to visit a customer. The lobster roll just sounded good that day, so I went with it. It wasn't bad, but being from New England, I had higher expectations. Don't get me wrong, it probably had the meat of a small Maine lobster in it, but there was something... More

It was a bit pricey but was fun for a special occasion. I wish we had gotten there earlier for a view but it was dark early in Feb.

I eat at this place very often. My wife's favorite dish is fresh catch cooked with a basil, tomato and mushrooms. Its like one of those Hells Kitchen dishes. Seriously the flavor is fantastic. They have a decent menu with many choices. I love the seafood gumbo with yellow rice. That's what I'm talking about. Prices are very reasonable. I... More

This place offers comfortable atmosphere where you can sit on the porch or inside. Both areas have a beautiful view of the river which is very relaxing. This is an older building that does not look like much from the outside but inside is all wood floors and walls. The day we went it was not busy and the service... More

The Shack is alongside US1, and when you drive by, doesn't look like much. When you actually go in have a seat, you will be quite surprised. You can either sit completely outside, in a screened porch area, or inside. Either way you have a FANTASTIC view of the river, just a few steps away. The décor inside is quaint,... More

The somewhat shaggy exterior just adds to the wonderful, home-place atmosphere on the inside. They offer an extensive choice of seafood, steaks, pasta and more - fixed simply or in gourmet ways - your choice. We had a large family group so we took advantage of the opportunity of trying different appetizers, salads and desserts. Everything rated a 10. To... More

i used to go there 20 years ago, and i loved getting their rock shrimp. i went back there a few weeks ago and they no longer have rock shrimp on their menu, so i went elsewhere. From what i remember, their seafood was pretty good, and the view was quite nice. sorry i dont have more up-to-date information

It is wonderful to discover great places to eat that won't put a big dent in your wallet. The Shack Seafood Restaurant is such a place. You can eat indoors or out on their screened in deck overlooking the water. They have many delightful dishes and specials, for example the stuffed flounder is a tasty treat I recently had and...

Our last couple of visits to the restaurant were disappointing as we had come to expect better food quality and better service. Perhaps it is seasonal but the quality of food has dropped off enough since 2012 that we no longer consider this one of our go to locations.

The Shack is fun to eat at if you eat on the screened in porch. Otherwise, it is dark and smelly inside. Their food is good but seems to be going up in price. Not as impressed the last time we went.
