Not terrible, but not good. Just ok. Priced much too high to be just ok but that's beach life. I was disappointed at how weak the pricey drinks were. Honestly, I was just disappointed in the meal as a whole. The staff was nice. If...More

This was our first time in Maine and we came for lobster and the Shack fit the bill. We did not want to dress up on on our vacation but wanted to just enjoy a nice relaxing dinner with a view and this was everything...More
