The lovely river view and quaint entrance plus our attentive and professional server were the best part of this sea food restaurant. Food was mediocre. I ordered the broil salmon which was scored and edible and just ok with too much butter.The supposedly tumeric rice was tasteless and the soggy vegetables were swimming in butter. Presentation was definitely poor. If... More

I have been to the Shack several times in the past six months. Lunch and dinner. Always eat on the screened porch since the inside dining has a strong musty smell. After my latest lunch there, I probably won't go back anytime soon. The service was certainly not up to par for the price of the meals. We sat on... More

So excited to have dinner at this local seafood spot but other than the view....nothing special at all. Poor service, mediocre food and inattentive management. Not a place I would revisit. It's a shame because i love a place on the water. :(

The location on the river is lovely. It cannot be accessed by boaters. You can sit indoors or on a screened porch with overhead fans. Very dated decor. The fresh fish prepared many different ways is the way to order here, however, they were already out of our choice of fish at 6:30 pm. I really wanted all-you-can-eat crabs which... More

Originally from Florida, I appreciate really good Seafood & don't find it in Illinois. So, Let me say that to me it was Fabulous. Not the absolutely best, but I didn't pay those prices,either. Would recommend and go back when in town.

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
