“GREAT spot to eat”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Harry runs the place and he runs a tight ship: organized and delicious. The Shack is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and was one of the most enjoyable places we went to eat. It is an outdoor restaurant albet covered from the sun and located in the trees. Menu is conprehensive - everything you would want is on it. The locals eat at the Shack and its great food and good value. Highly recommended.

“Great menu, lot of fun”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We stopped for lunch and will go back soon. Huevos rancheros and a burrito were both delicious. Friendly and helpful waiters, great prices...our kudos to the chef. This shady, attractive little restaurant is a gem.

“Comfortable Vibe / Good Food”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

We went to the Shack for Dinner one night and decided to return their for breakfast the next morning as we just liked the feeling of the place. (And obviously we food was delicious.)

Stopped in several of times during our stay just to get a cool beer and snack while riding the bikes around.

Check it out!
