I love that it has a laid back vibe but still has high quality standards of cleanliness and service. They put a lot of care and attention into what they do and the staff always makes you feel so welcome. I've loved every dish I've gotten so far and the pricing is really reasonable. Definitely check it out! : )

“Not that great(”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

Having read the reviews we were very disappointed. The place is very easy to get to. Food was alright, descent prices. My wife and I had a chicken nachos and casado with fish. Didn't have a descent bathroom, very very dirty! I wish we would have had a better experience.

Great food at reasonable prices. I love that there is a blend of local food and American style food. English speaking staff, and danielle is quirky and sweet making the it a genuine and fun place to hang out

“Great lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Visited The Shack last week - we were lost and hungry and just stopped in, not knowing what to expect. Had the best fish all week - great Dorado. Really tasty food, cold beer, nice setting. The three of us enjoyed our lunches and enjoyed meeting Harry, the owner. And then he put us on the right road (actually the same road, just making the right turns!) Thanks Harry.
