The Shack is practically an institution in Palm Bay under the same family ownership, except for a recent couple of years, for over 30 years. It's a rustic building right on the Indian River, so has glorious vistas if you can get a window table. The food is edible but not particularly noteworthy and it's a bit pricey for the... More

Two years ago we loved The Shack. Last year it didn't have the good food and this year the service and food is terrible for the price.

Love the view right on the river. Love the twice baked potatoes. Fresh catch is always available and includes salad. Great clam chowder as well..........oh and good bread too. Nice warm rolls. Always get to see the dolphins in the river and the osprey's diving for fish.

We stopped for some old fashioned batter fried fish. If that is what you want, this is a great place. The conch fritters are good, rolls are fresh and warm and blue cheese is great. The captains platter is enough for two. Fried shrimp is perfect. Stella on tap just the thing to go with this meal.wait staff works hard... More

My husband & I went here for lunch. We had the Lobster Roll which was delicious. The service & atmosphere was ok. I've only been here once & we only had the Lobster Roll so I can't really say if I recommend this restaurant or not. I'm giving my Very Good overall rating based on the Lobster Roll.

They are obviously under staffed because the service is terrible. I had the captains platter and could not swallow the first bite. It was fried in old grease and the shrimp had no flavor. It was so greasy it practically floated on the plate. Others had the seafood and cheese dish which was a bowl of melted cheese that taste... More

We ate dinner at the Shack on recommendation from friends who live nearby. Wonderful rolls served with our salads. The Lobster Roll I had was good, large chunks of lobster also fries and slaw. Others in my party had stuffed shrimp which was very good, another person had an appetizer plate which I will probably have when we return. It... More
