A seafood restaurant with one crab dish , king crab only, that the waitress said was "over rated " . The prime rib was cold in the center . The scallop and shrimp dish ,the waitress said was the house special ,had a broken, grainy cheese sauce. My baked potato had tarter sauce served on it instead of sour cream.... More

Tried numerous times, forget it, I'm done with it. Nice views that's it. Dungeness inside dark, poor quality of fish... Fishy taste and smell when arrived at table. Not sure how people think this is good food.... To each their own I guess!

Located overlooking the Indian River, the views from the outside porch are great. We went for lunch. We ordered our favorites- clam chowder and oyster po-boys. The creamy clam chowder was not salty. The po-boys are big and come with excellent home made chips. The service was very good.

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

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
