We went to Shack Restaurant for dinner when we arrived in Missoula. We were shocked, but excited to find the restaurant almost empty. The restaurant was very cute and the beers were nice and cheap. We ordered steaks and burgers. The salads were good...with great homemade ranch dressing. However, the steaks were very tough, the burger was just OK and... More

The food was good & not too pricey. Our server was friendly and attentive. Old west atmosphere in the downtown area. Take time to go down to the river & enjoy the area.

We were passing through Missoula and looking for a good local restaurant for breakfast. Well, we found it in the Shack. Food was outstanding and the staff very friendly. The service was a little slow but well worth the wait for the great food they service. Highly recommend this restaurant for breakfast

Food was fair. Never had dinner there before Only breakfast. Server named Molly blamed host for not getting us water. Was cruizing through the meal with little mishap till I got the bill and just asked about a .75 charge for soup. Price wasn't the issue. Molly, our server blew up! Said no one ever made an issue about that... More

June 20, 2014 Husband and I were referred to this restaurant by a local. It was the best meal we have had out for a long, long time. Prices very reasonable, service (Mollie) friendly and ambience beautiful along with soft music. We ordered a Chicken Oriental Salad, which was very tasty and fresh. Loaded with seeds, almonds, crisp greens and... More

Service friendly but a little slow. Fish and chips was good. Batter was excellent. At this price I would expect fresh potatoes. Hamburger was well prepared. Ingredients were very fresh. Fries were good but fresh potatoes again would improve the meal.

I hadn't been to The Shack Restaurant for quite a while and thinking back, it has been in Missoula - moved from Front Street to Main Street present location - for ages and is still the best spot to order homemade soup and fresh salad, brunch, a hearty sandwich or any of the many choices on their eclectic menu. It... More

Had been told this was the best restaurant for a great breakfast in Missoula. We were seated next to a large group that was loud and when we asked if we could be moved so we could visit they said they couldn't because the other side wasn't open. Then, it took over 25 minutes to get our order taken and... More
