The Shack is a great grab and go option for boaters, but expect a bit of a wait on the weekends. The young staff are great, working efficiently and cheerfully in the hot cramped kitchen. All the tacos are delicious, and the guacamole is fresh....More

Delicious tacos, burritos and bowls. My wife had beef tacos and I had the lobsters bowl. Seating is outside along the water with picnic tables.

Had the best shrimp burrito here. Friends got tacos. Beef, chicken, and shrimp was all tasty. Everyone enjoyed their food.

Drove the family across the bridge for lunch at The Shack today only to discover they are cash only. Anyone with a smartphone can accept credit cards, there is no viable reason for this. We went elsewhere rather than driving around looking for an ATM...More

This little hidden "shack" in Dutch Harbor on the island of Jamestown is a true gem. The tacos are the best I've had. It's solely take-out with a few picnic benches right at the water's edge. It does get busy during the summer high season....More

The Shack has become a Jamestown institution. In a small, unprepossessing space at Jamestown's Dutch Harbor, a small team turns out superb fish, lobster and meat filled tacos. And customers eat at picnic tables within feet of the water. Food and setting complement each other...More

My husband and I are both big fans of Tallulah's in Newport, but we much prefer to stay in Jamestown when visiting the area (quieter, fewer people, easier parking). So we were delighted to find the Shack, with it's delicious tacos and burritos. They're the...More
