I visited the Shack for lunch on a weekday, it was packed. Server was friendly and efficient, I asked a couple of questions and decided on the oxtail, but asked for a sample of the curry goat.
The oxtail was very good, and so was the sample of curry goat. The smoke was from the kitchen and not smokers, but my wife asked where I went for lunch since my clothes reeked. Also, since I was alone and just reading some papers, it seemed the chatter was quite loud from the rest of the diners in the room, maybe some acoustic treatments on the wall would tone down the overall noise levels.
