I stayed on Madeira Beach in February 2020. I frequently walked to the Snack Shack from the beach. I loved that it was right on the sand. There was always a musician playing during the day and also at sunset where everyone would gather for...a drink and photos. Great little place for ice cream too.More

We selected this venue because of its location; the sunset was very nice. However, the food and the service left much to be desired, in my opinion. We ordered the fish spread, which was very good and large, but it came with only 6-8 small...pieces of pita triangles, for four people. The pita did not last long, and we still had over 75% of the spread remaining, so we went back and asked for more. The waiter brought 6-8 more little pieces, for $2.00! While the sum is small, the concept is ridiculous; most places would bring more bread or whatever if you run out; not here. The fish and chips took a while, and then when it came, the fish was mushy, almost a paste. In my opinion, the fish was either frozen or overcooked, or both. The topper was at the end. An employee (it could have been the manager) came to our table, and proceeded to scrape the uneaten food from everyone’s plate onto one plate, right there at the table as we were sitting there. She then piled the paper and plastic garbage on the top of the food detritus, spilling some. She then stacked the plates, and grabbed the garbage plate in one hand and the other stuff in the other hand; two trips were not apparently her plan. My wife’s family has an old southern expression: “ Are you class, or do you stack”? You make the call.More

Very casual al fresco dining and bar. Great place to watch the sunset. You stand in line to order. You stand in a separate line to order a drink. One bartender for more than 50 people is ridiculous. Then they say they will bring you...your food. So you don't stand in one for that. But you sure wait for it. Then when you finally your food, it is cold. Hum.More

It has been over 2 years since I was here last. Went back recently for an early lunch over the weekend. Nice surprise...Live music was playing. Food is always decent and reasonable for a beach setting, but today service was slow. Only 2 servers to...handle probably 25-30 people or more. After you order, you pay at that time and the servers bring it to your table. They do have a bar, but only serves beer, wine and bottled or caned adult drinks, but no liquor or cocktails made here. Inside is an ice cream area and bunches of stuff for your beach day if you forgot. Parking in right here at the shack, but does fill up quickly. Have a Great Beach Day!!!More

I ordered a blackened grouper taco to go. It came with a fruit salsa on top. Was really good. Would definitely go back.

My sister & nephew wanted ice cream on a hot day, but we didn't want to have to get all cleaned up or drive anywhere. The spacious open-air seating wasn't crowded. The ice cream was really delicious. While we didn't have any 'real' food on...our visit, the people around us really seemed to be enjoying their orders of fish, loaded fries, and burgers.More

Great food and bar! So friendly! Food takes a while but it is cooked to order and delicious. Spent a week in Madeira Beach and frequented it quite often. Great place to see the sunset.

Just a short walk from our friends condo. Went for breakfast on the beach. Outside seating with a view of the gulf. Order breakfast at the order window and the server brings to the table. Basic breakfast fare. What we ordered was done well. We...were a late morning breakfast and had a singer/guitar setup and start while we were there. Would have been an enjoyable place to spend some time. It is next to a public beach, so it would be convenient for lunch while on the beach.More

Not 100% sure it is accurate but they have a website and there is an event page. I tried to post a link but it wouldn’t let me...
