Had an generously-stuffed chicken wrap and several cold Belikens. Friendly service and great views of the beach and inlet.

We stopped in for a quick smoothie. The smoothies were great, but the best part is the location. Right on the edge of the inlet, great for people watching.

We had drinks from here more than once. They are all made fresh. Anything you order they cut the fruit and juice it or turn it into a smoothie right there in front of you. Even their mixed drinks with fruit was the same they made it fresh from the fruit. The food we had was good here as well.... More

We had walked a LONG walk into town, reached the harbor, and spotted the Shak. Never so welcome a sight as the list of smoothies on the menu. Can't speak to the food, which we didn't order, but the fruit smoothies hit the spot, and the service was good. Refreshing and tasty.

We weren't planning on eating at the Shak, but that's the way it worked out. No regrets! Great food! Good portions. Good service. Right off the water.

Finding vegetarian options were difficult, but this place had a ton of them, almost as many as the meat options. The food was also delicious and there were even Mediterranean options. The server we had wasn't the best but she got us our food and then left us alone so I guess it worked out. I would have liked to... More
