Description: Welcome to The Shack - a rustic shellfish bar in bustling Events Square, Falmouth, where the food is always fresh! Relaxed dining in an unrivalled atmosphere - with the focus on sparklingly fresh, local seafood. The idea is simple: sociable food and a fun, hands-on approach to shellfish. We've got something for everyone, from shellfish of every variety to fish of the day, steak, vegetarian options and a children's menu. Open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

Four of us had a lovely meal here. I had booked by leaving an answer phone message, which was responded to very swiftly. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was very tasty and reasonably priced. It was informal dining at its best - in fact the only slight negative was the noisy smashing of shellfish shells by other customers!

3 friends and I ate lunch at The Shack on Wednesday lunch time, although busy the service was quick and attentive. Delicious food, we had the 2 courses for £12. Such a lovely relaxing atmosphere.
Can't recommend it highly enough.

We preordered the lobster as we were advised to do so. When it arrived it was cold.
The service was average.
I think it's overpriced and overrated.

There are much better resturants in Falmouth to spend your money in.

Thank you for your review.

We humbly apologise that your lobster was cold. Did you let us know during your visit...... I'm guessing not? - So we didn't have the chance to rectify the problem or compensate you in any way. But thank you for then letting us know on tripadvisor!

We advise you to pre-order lobster to avoid disappointment if its something you are planning on ordering. The availability of certain menu dishes can be up and down depending on season etc so we ask out of courtesy. Sorry if you didn't understand that.

Lobster does come at a premium price, and although some say its overrated, it does come down to personal preference. Perhaps lobster isn't something you want to be ordering in the future?!

This restaurant appears to be one of the best seafood restaurants in the town. Lunch was courses for £12. Excellent fried squid and whitebait then mussels and frites. All excellent and value for money!
