So many better breakfast and lunch options in town. Meals for a large group were just average all around. Decor is dated and seems like it needs an update on furniture. Overall just an ok experience.

I have lived in Missoula for 4 years and never knew this place was right under my nose. My family and I loved eating at The Shack, however it was hard to choose between the breakfast and lunch menu. I opted for breakfast, which means I have to go back for lunch soon. I ordered a three egg omelet with... More

We eat here frequently. Service, food, and personality make this my favorite for breakfasts. A great family as well as friend place to meet & eat. Never an empty cup and I especially like their granola pancakes.

Great breakfast in quaint Missoula. I think the breakfast is served all day (at least through lunchtime). Vegetables extremely fresh in omelet!

We visit The Shack whenever we are in Missoula - the food, service and general ambience brings us back again and again. We usually have the special - and I have never had a bad meal there. Their fried chicken is some of the best ever and other dishes from salads to meatloaf are also right on par. This isn't... More

The Shack has been the place in Missoula for leisurely breakfasts for many many years - an icon! The omelets are delicious as well as including standard and intriguing food pairings. Buffalo pies are a fill-you-up fun dish for young & not so young to enjoy, too. Plan to wait at least a short while for a table; the wait... More

We came here because it was highly recommended and heard that this place is awarded by the local newspaper. Servers were too busy to refill our drinks but they were friendly nonetheless. I had grilled pork chop breakfast which turned out overcooked and stiff. Would need very strong teeth on that.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Missoula. The breakfast menu features terrific omelets and in the spring you can order a morel mushroom omelet which is my favorite. The lunch menu offers a wide selection of sandwiches and salads and I've never been disappointed with my selection. My favorite, however, is the salmon sandwich with a cup of... More

The Shack is a comfortable restaurant in downtown Missoula. I make a point of stopping there for breakfast whenever I'm in town. I particularly like the Anaheim chili-pepper cheese omelet. Good breakfast, ample portions and friendly staff.
