“Closed, no longer open”
Review of The Shack - CLOSED

The Shack
Cuisines: Steakhouse
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 2, 2012

An icon in Snyder has closed.

Recently, The Shack closed it doors after over 30 years of operation.

The current owner sited drop in business, rising costs and unable to get and keep good employees due to oil field activity and better wages of the oil field.

It is really sad. While not a four star restaurant you could get a good basic steak, salad and baker for a reasonable price.

The decor was unique with license plates of local residents and visitors. Even my dads was there.

They will be missed.

I stop here whenever I'm in Snyder. My favorite is the steak. Salad bar is small but still very good.

Stopped for dinner in Snyder on the way to Carlsbad. The food at The Shack was good. I would eat here again. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was good.

The food is good. The place stinks and is VERY dirty. My shoes stuck to the bathroom floor. The waiter was nice, but I won't go back. I figure if the part that I can see is dirty, what is it like in the kitchen that I can't see?
