There were 11 of us in our group. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful. She made sure our drinks were full and we had bread on the table. Food was good and didn't take real long to get. Two of our members were vegans and the waitress helped them put together a meal that they really enjoyed. Restaurant is... More

At one time a good place with nice view but now a dive of sorts. Some older persons still like it. But I only go when forced

The Shack seems to take its name too seriously. While the service was very good, the food OK and the view spectacular- this could be so much more. The Shack frankly looks like a dump and is in desperate need for an update (Bar Rescue?). I was a bit surprised also that some of the seafood was frozen not fresh.... More

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
