Went here on a Sunday night for dinner. At 7pm there was a total of 4 people in the restaurant. That should've been our 1st sign....if nobody is there, there's probably a reason. There was 1 bartender/waitress for the entire restaurant and she seemed clearly...More

Although my salad was cold and crisp, the chicken could hardly be gnawed through...microwaved, perhaps? And grissly!!!! My companion's crabcake was tastey, but so small it could have been a tiny crab ball. The waitress ran her fingers through her hair, and didn't return to...More

Went there for wing night as we always wanted to try it. Wings were ok, you could tell that they weren't fresh and had been frozen but that's pretty much what we expected, so not really disappointed. The beer selection was the typical selection, nothing...More

First time I came here the place was practically empty but the lady bartender said the kitchen was still open so we settled in with our drinks. My husband ordered the Reuben on marbled rye and I ordered the cheese steak. Both were excellent sandwiches...More

Small place but good sandwiches and bar food. Great prices and pretty good atmosphere. The place is clean and you get good service. Televisions at every table which is pretty nice for sports fans.

The food is consitently great here. I highly recommend the crab dip, the buffalo chicken salad, & burgers. Everything on the menu is delicious, I just can't remember them all. They recently changed ownership so hopefully the food stays the same :)

The food here is excellent and the prices are very good. We eat here every Friday night with friends. The chef has different specials every weekend. Last night was fall off the bone baby back ribs - YUM!

Horrible experience save yourself the trip. Terrible service, food had hair on it, order was wrong, staff all looked like they had an attitude and didn't want to be there, no other customers were being helped or talked to around us or at the bar,...More

Great date night spot, large bar allowed us to sit at the bar. Super Happy Hour food specials- Shrimp & potatoes spiced perfectly, Old Bay Wings tasty. TVs with O's game & Keno- great local date night.

While Shack's has a very prominent bar, it can be family friendly if you go before 9pm. The waitstaff and bar tenders are efficient and friendly and the food is consistently above average for a sports bar. It's the kind of place that you can...More
