Excellent meal and service

It's so hard to choose someplace to eat when you are on vacation. You are truly at the mercy of reviews and just "eyeballing" the place as you drive by. We read the reviews about The Shack on here and on Yelp.....and we're not disappointed. Cute beachy feel...with a full set of windows in the... read more

Good meal, fast service, decent price. Too cool to sit outside, but our indoor seating overlooked the river. Very nice. Great attentive staff.

We ate dinner at The Shack and it was average seafood (broiled grouper, fried calimari, fried shrimp). The service was average also, but the view was awesome of the inland waterway. The decor was old and dated, especially outside on the porch where we ate.

Food was great, the bread nice and hot, coleslaw very good. I had the stuffed shrimps and had to bring one home. Had steam broccoli and rice with it. This is the second time I have been there and I was impressed, the first time was not. I will go back

Great Salmon and the scallop topped salad was OK. Service was a bit rushed. Restaurant has been updated since my last visit.

We have driven by the Shack on many occasions and from the outside it doesn;t look like a place you might want to stop at. We heard some good reviews so went with our neighbors. What a surprise. Never judge a book by its cover is so true about the Shack. Outside doesn;t look too appealing but inside is a... More

Food was awesomely mediocre. Place has the location to be a quality experience. during our visit the outside deck was occupied by a family holding a memorial service for a deceased member. Wouldn't surprise me to learn the person died from the food at this place.

I wouldn't recommend this place as it seems old and outdated. The service was poor and food was not very good.

I often bring out of town guests to The Shack because it's on the water and has an old-fashioned supper club feel. The food is good, but not spectacular. There is so much potential for an outstanding dining experience, but it always stops short of that. I get the sense of a once successful restaurant that has gone into auto-pilot.
