Description: Le Chic Shack is a new gourmet burger/milk shake restaurant opened in June 2012. We also serve poutines, fries and salads. For dessert, we offer milk shakes and ice cream sandwiches. The owners of Le Chic Shack are the sister-brother team of Lucy and Evan Price. They are also owners of the renowned Auberge Saint-Antoine and Panache restaurant in Quebec City. Located in a historic building owned by their family for five decades, Le Chic Shack reflects their culinary and interior design expertise. In creating their new restaurant, Lucy and Evan worked closely with their management team and Chef Mikael Garneau, previously of Panache, The Culinary Edge of San Francisco (California) and their local supplier base.Beyond our tasty recipes, these are some features that make Le Chic Shack stand out:* brioche buns made by local artisan baker Borderon et fils * sweet potato fries (along with fries from white potatoes)* uniquely built poutines - from side to main course dishes* milk shakes and ice cream sandwiches made with old fashioned coaticook ice cream * our own fruit sodas and ice tea* draft beer from the local Archibald brewery* draft wine selected by the sommelier of the Panache restaurant* the dynamism and energy of an open kitchen* a relaxed dining environment with tremendous views of the Chateau Frontenac through large French windowsLe Chic Shack is located on the Place d'Armes in the Vieux-Quebec (Old Quebec), facing the Chateau Frontenac and below the Musee du Fort.

“Great place for gourmet burgers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

There are some very creative burger options. The lobster burger does not disappoint with a very generous amount of lobster meat. Only disappointment was not being able to sit on the patio with an alcoholic beverage but sitting in one of the open windows was an interesting alternate experience.

“simply and good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

The burgers are tasty and the poutine is serve with a home made gravy. I appreciated the mineral water ad libitum. The service and ambiance are only ok.

“Over priced...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

This was a very disappointing experience. Wen there to have a burger with the kids and I was very disappointed. The burgers are very small, and many of the choices on the menu were not available at dinner time (they ran out of it). We went there with our two young kids, and there are TV screens showing videos of teens and young adults skate-boarding, and at some points they “flip the bird” to the camera, and at another point some guy “moons” the camera. Not appropriate for young kids.
$80 for four burgers, 1 Poutine, and 4 drinks. Not really worth it.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our burgers were unusually creative and very tasty. The poutine used fried smashed potatoes instead of french fries, and this was a delicious variation. The kitchen sink cookie ice cream sandwich was a lovely end to our delightful meal. Service was friendly and quick, and the atmosphere was cozy.

“Fast fresh and fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

What a gem of a spot. Fast service, fresh cocept and the food was fantastic. Great poutine - red onions, brised beef, cheese with all round awesomeness. The burger with mustard, gruyere and bison hit the spot. But the strawberry shake with raspberry liquor was the show stealer.

All in all a winner with a great vibe
