was there for dinner and had the alaskin crab legs. They were cooked well and service was great.We had the special drinks that were supporting the dangerous catch and that was not the drink for us. After telling the waitress our dislike of the drinks , she gladly replaced with another. All was good.

Stopped in for a seafood lunch when visiting the area. Our waitress was phenomenal! We were interested in knowing about the surrounding area and she proceeded to bring us maps and magazines with lots of great information. The restaurant is small and rustic and has probably been in the area forever. Our waitress rattled off the specials and definitely knew... More

The service was very slow. The food was probably the poorest quality I've ever had. I ordered scallops on rice. The rice was soupy and the scallops were mushy. It was poorly prepared and I couldn't have been more disappointed.

I first visited the Shack in 1991 while on business. The food and service was great then and is just as good today. The decor is rustic in a nautical theme, with great views of the Intracoastal Waterway. Seating is comfortable and well placed so you don't have people squeezing by your table. The staff are friendly and well informed... More

I visited my mother in Florida with my son, granddaughters Logan, Courtney, Matt and my great grandson Carson. I decided to take them all out to eat at The Shack. It has become a favorite of my mother's. The food was excellent and the waitress was very attentive. We sat out on the patio overlooking the Inter-Coastal Waterway. It was... More

Four of us met for lunch. Location is on the water, so we all had a nice view. Quick and friendly service. I had a special, which was a tropical salad. It had coconut shrimp which were delicious, and sweet, fresh strawberries and blueberries, and a sweet strawberry dressing. My only complaint was that there were bits of canned fruit... More

My husband and I are from the desert in Nevada. It's hard to get fresh seafood out here. Someone told us about the Shack so we went for dinner. Unbelievable! The food was so fresh and the taste was out of this world. And it was so reasonable. The restaurant overlooks the river. Great time!

We've visited here several times with out of town guests. Recently the quality of the food has decreased. Not sure we will be returning.

We were seated at a table near the large window which overlooks a broad expanse of the Indian River. There is also a screened in area facing the river which would be a great place for dining in cooler, less humid weather, but with temps in the mid-90's we were happy to be inside with air conditioning. Despite the name,... More

This place used to be very nice. Good location, decent food and reasonably priced. I don't dine there any longer due to the cleanliness of the restaurant. Smells like mold and the restrooms are deplorable.
