“Great Sunday breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

We had a large party (7) at a busy time. Hostess was efficient in getting us seated within reasonable time. OUTSTANDING server. Impressed by marketing of breast cancer fundraiser. Also by the waffles and attentive coffee refills.

“Great diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

The Shack is a completely satisfying "diner food" place, with competent and pleasant service.
Listen, the slogan of The Shack (displayed on the t-shirts worn by the wait staff) is "Life is short. Have pie." How bad could it be!
Try it; you'll like it.

“WOW!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

The service was great and the food was plentiful! We went on a locals suggestion and was glad we did. The mess was very good but more than one can handle.
