Absolutely delicious SOUTHERN FOOD

We found this restaurant on the internet under Myrtle Beach area restaurants and glad we did. A diner/restaurant style nothing fancy but gotta say the food was GREAT. You can order four or five different dishes each day consisting of a meat, three vegetables, hush puppies and tea/soda for $7.99... read more

All 5 of us ordered something different and everyone enjoyed breakfast. Busy place but they handle the crowds well. Excellent pancakes and biscuits and gravy!

The best way to describe The Shack is TERRIFIC. My wife and I went here before going to Berry's next door for some fresh seafood to cook back at our condo and I am glad we did. We both had shrimp (golden and lightly fried) and then she had flounder (it was good) and I had scallops ($2 extra and... More

If you are into light fare then don't eat here. But for lunch at any rate, if it's tasty, homestyle food you want at a more than reasonable price, then this is the place to eat. The lunch special consists of a choice of 4 meat dishes, for example chicken and dumplings, fried chicken, fish, etc., plus you get to... More

Wife ordered omelet with shrimp and crab, also came with biscuit and grits. I ordered the Shack special which came with 2 sausage patties 2 strips of bacon, 2 pancakes, 2 eggs and home fries. Wife really enjoyed her breakfast. Omelet had plenty of lump crab and decent size shrimp. I on the other hand though the pancakes were tough.... More

Southern cooking, but what I had was not so good. I ordered clam strips. They were fried so long I could barely get my fork in them. No taste, very disappointed. I had the scallops fried too, which were much better but there weren't many of them for the price. The coleslaw was good. The place has nothing for atmosphere,... More

Great locally owned seafood restaurant. Food and Service was very good. Decor was beachy and casual. Friendly local folks eat here. Just a great place to go when you want good seafood at reasonable prices where you get the local feel.

Simple home style "diner" food. Everything is basically a main with a choice of 3 sides on a single plate. Everything is fried and you have to pay extra to have it grilled or steamed. I had the fried chicken and my wife had the shrimp on a bed of grits I think breakfast is the better time to go... More

I had eaten here several years ago, and a friend asked me to meet him there for lunch today. I honestly did not remember the name but remembered the restaurant when we arrived. It was just as good as I remembered. It's a "plate lunch" kind of place, a meat and three vegetables. I had fried catfish, collard greens, lima... More
