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.

The day we went, it smelled of garbage and we couldn't stay. They are only open until 4pm. Some said it had good breakfast food, but we didn't venture back.

Nothing real special, just a good place to grab a quick bite to eat. The smoothie and food were good.
