The portion sizes and the service were good. The hush puppies served before dinner were light sweet and crispy, served with sweetened butter. To my taste more desert than bread course, but good. The collard greens were too sweet as was the chardonnay. The scallops were bland, salty and a little pricey.They come with spicy cocktail sauce. You can get... More

Great food and service. The place was packed for lunch. Lunch specials are good. My wife had fried catfish and I had grilled hamburger steak. Cornbread was delicious!

It was an average meal... Prices were fairly reasonable. The decor was kind of old but the menu had a lot of choices. I had a sandwich my wife had a dinner plate. Nothing stood out to me,it would have been perfect for lunch not dinner.

Nothing fancy, just good old down home country cooking with a hint of soul food. If you're looking for southern fried chicken, this is the place. Haven't tried it for breakfast yet, but I'm sure it's got to be good.

Nothing fancy but, the food was good. The service was quick and food was hot and fresh. Once seated, a basket of hush puppies magically appears on your table. Try this local spot out!

The Shack is a laid back place frequented by locals in the off season for it's good food and reasonable prices. You seat yourself and the waitresses all work together taking orders and bringing out the food. They have daily specials one of which is a meat and 3 sides for under $9.00. The night we went your choices were... More

The Shack is our new "go to" for breakfast when in North Myrtle Beach. Beach décor and a friendly staff start you off, but the food is also great! We can't wait for our next visit to try lunch and dinner here! Great place!
