“Can you say dive bar? ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This is your typical neighborhood dive bar; not especially clean, drinks are average as was the menu. wouldn't recommend for anything other than a quick cocktail.

“Taco Tuesday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Saw this place from the street and stopped by for a late lunch/happy hour drink and bite. It was Taco Tuesday so the mahi mahi tacos were only $2 each. They were very good, as were the $2 margaritas. We ate on the patio and although it faces the street it was a nice setting (except for smokers!). Our waiter was great and the service was quick. A good place to have a drink.

“Great Location! Cute Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Ate lunch on the beautiful patio in June and had a nice time. Fun place to grab a bite and have some drinks. The fish tacos were delicious and the other food we ordered was pretty good. Overall, it is a bar and the food is typical bar food but a step above. I love the place, staff, beverages, location and would definitely go back. The Shack is also dog friendly and even have a section on their menu dedicated to pooches...I thought that was great!! Also looks like they have fun events at night for the younger crowd.

“Great hamburgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We noticed this restaurant because it was a block from our rental cottage and it had a nice outdoor patio. The three of us ordered hamburgers and $2 Margarita special. My Hawaiian burger, with Swiss cheese and grilled pineapple, was fantastic. I would recommend this place for a casual dinner. You can bring your dog on the patio as long as he's well behaved.
