Food is delicious. From the outside it looks like a shack. Very nice inside and a casual screened in porch on the river. Good seafood. Bigger menu choice for lunch. Good portions and good prices. Have eaten there a few times. It's a must for seafood lovers, but they have everything.

We both got the shrimp platters for $13.99. We each got 5 nice size tasty shrimp & a hand full of steak fries. I got the salad (lettuce, some shredded cabbage, one tomato, & 1 cucumber). My husband got about a 1/2 cup of slaw. It was good...but not for the price. The gumbo was really good too. The owner... More

The Shack has become a favorite of my wife and I because of their good food and great location on the Indian River. We go there for lunch regularly. They have several salad luncheon specials that, with a cup of soup, are plenty. They are presented beautifully. And the dressings are delicious. Couple that with the view on the river,... More

It is still delicious..had the melting-ist oysters and good breads and the most delicious bourbon pecan pie. Got a pear-gorganzola (sp) salad with chicken and cannot wait to have that... More

We have been patrons for the last 8 years. We stopped in for a late lunch. I ordered the conch fritters as an appetizer from last visit the count is the same but the size is half. On top of that they had a very greasy after taste. My wife ordered fried flounder with fries and slaw. I swear the... More

Our impression of a quaint Florida restaurant - great view of the water, rustic interior, neat bar. Great clam chowder, sea scallops were excellent and the yellowfin tuna was cooked perfectly and was a very generous portion. Both my wife and I remarked on how tasty the vegetables were, the snow peas, green beans and broccoli. Also came with a... More
