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

On a recent Saturday night we tried The Shack for the first time. I enjoyed the crab cakes, a baked potato and delicious cole slaw, while my husband continued his quest for great oysters. He found the oysters to be very good and cooked perfectly. The French fries however were greasy and not crisp. We both decided the hush puppies... More

We visit the Shack for breakfast, lunch and dinner frequently. Great prices and lots of home cooking going on there. Don't miss it if you're at NMB!

Visited with friends for lunch today. Place was packed with mostly locals. Pretty basic menu with some decent specials. Good sized portions and reasonably priced. Hubby had the catfish, one member had the pork chop, and other had the fried chicken - all good. The 2 people that had the tomato pie as a side loved it.

We went for seafood - and most of my party got the shrimp sandwich ($9.49), and they all loved them. I got the Cherry Grove Platter ($19.99) - and I know why they loved their shrimp sandwiches, as the shrimp were the best thing on the combo plate. The rest of my platter was pretty pedestrian (the flounder, scallops, deviled... More

Happened to go at a time that was extremely busy. The service was less than fair and the food was average. Cost was high for proportion
