Cool setting: roadside shack with room for casual picnic seating or nicer indoor seating. Great service, quality food, good price.

The Shack is open very late which was good for us. The beer is cold especially the Nirvana IPA. The menu is small, but they serve right out of the garden fresh vegetables especially the tomatoes. The chicken sandwich marinated in beer was tasty, even...More

This place is right on the side of the road. Outdoor bar. The inside would be awesome for groups or on cold nights. Burgers salads chicken etc, everything was great. Its not really a shack. Just a nice comfy place to eat.
