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 meal, interesting concept. Their sweet potato fries are amazing and so is their homemade raspberry or ginger soda. We had the buffalo burger and chicken salad, both great and large without being over-sized. Great value for money in an expensive city.

We were looking for a cheaper place to have lunch since we'd been shelling out a lot on restaurants at night. So I figured, what better place than a burger and pouting joint. I was in for a surprise. My wife had the "le p'tit dej" burger. It was pretty good, but $11 for a small-ish burger that doesn't even come with fries? You gotta be kidding me. I'd rather head to Five Guys. I got the coq au vin poutine. It was pretty good too, but not spectacular either. There were some big chunks of potato that didn't really resemble fries and didn't have the texture either. Finally, we had milkshakes. The chocolate one was quite good, but the strawberry milkshake was more like a vanilla shake with a strawberry on too as garnish, very little strawberry flavor. Overall, pretty good food, but waaaay overpriced, $50 for two people was just ridiculous for this type of food.

Great burgers and shake. Wife had the lobster, said it was better than a Maine lobster roll.
Loved the atmosphere. Beautiful Quebec City evening watching the people mill about around Le Musee du Fort. This is Quebec City at its best.
