Food was average, but overpriced. $2 for the fries, and got about 8. Sad! The hamburg was great, and the waitstaff friendly. The Lobster roll sucked. Not worth $20. Never again!

The clam chowder was horrible and don't even attempt to eat the lobster roll. The lobster was like biting into rubber. I do have to say the service was good. This review is based on a take out order.

Stopped in here for a late dinner. Sat on the 2nd floor area for a beach view with dinner. Service, lobster dinner and overall experience was excellent.

We enjoyed everything about our meal at the Shack. We ordered a variety of food items from the menu and they all were good. What made the place especially nice for us were the ultra-friendly service and atmosphere.
