“Great local alternative as long as you know the etiquette.”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

When we arrived on the island we saw kids advertising for Domino's, so it was nice to know that we could find a tasty local alternative. Being Saturday night, though, the wait for delivery was very long, so we placed our order for pickup. Our wait was still an hour, and when we arrived it wasn't ready. The shack itself was like a sauna. One thing that they didn't tell us over the phone was that they only accept cash.
Most importantly though, the pizza was good. It had a thinner crust and tasty sauce. I would definitely recommend Pizza Shack, and have every intention of ordering from them again if we're fortunate enough to return to Oak Island. Just make sure you plan ahead for delivery and have cash on hand.

“Fresh tasty local pie”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

In biz since 1989 so got the longevity thing and no chain. Dealt with 3 emplyees and all quite gracious. Picked up pie right out of oven and all ingredients fresh. Slightly crunchy crust-good. Cheese covered veggies, like that. Def will return

“Very Friendly Owners”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We visited Oak Island for our honeymoon and decided to order from Pizza Shack for dinner one night. The owners were a couple who were extremely nice and welcoming and who had been married for 40 years. We ordered the Roman pizza, which was loaded with cheese and toppings. The crust was crispy, which was good and not just your average pizza crust. They really took the time to say hello and talk to us while we waited. The service was quick and the pizza was delicious. We will definitely eat there again next time we are in Oak Island.

“Nothing extremely special.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

The food is just average. There aren't a whole lot of other options than pizza. The people who work there are really great, really nice, and very cooperative.
