Arrived just before 1:00 PM, hoping the crowds on this Tuesday wouldn't be too large. Luckily, we found parking only feet from the entrance, which could be unusual for this popular lunch spot. Service was prompt, and selections included a separate breakfast menu. They have a full-service bar (if you want at or near mid-day), but the stars are to... More

Best pancakes ever - but you pay for them. $9 for ONE pancake!!! Ridiculous! Eggs were tasteless. Service is and always has been at a turtle's pace. Super-overpriced, and not that great overall.

My wife and I stopped here on our vacation. The restaurant is very nice, very clean. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent, you must try the banana bread french toast. You won't be disappointed.

I arrived not long after they had opened and was immediately greeted by a pleasant you man who showed me to a booth in the sparsely populated restaurant. There breakfast menu was pretty large and I chose the Huevos Rancheros. The presentation was excellent. I neglected to order the chorizo which would have added more spice to the dish. Nonetheless,...

One of our favorite places for lunch or breakfast. Check the times that they are open, many days they are open also for dinner. The service was very good and good was great.

Found this place after being suggested by a friend, great little restaurant in the middle of Missoula. Quaint and quirky décor with a good menu. Friendly service and drinks and food were served quickly. Maybe a little expensive for some but still worth a visit. Good parking directly outside restaurant. Would definitely visit again.

My husband and I visited for breakfast on a Tuesday around 8am and had no wait (and did not have to pay for street parking - it doesn't start til 9am!). The host and waitress were both friendly and efficient, and our waitress happily explained house specialties. I got the banana bread French toast and my husband got the 2... More

The Shack was absolutely lovely. Adorable space, fast, friendly service and delicious food. I had the grilled tuna and Swiss and my husband had the corned beef hash. Both were great! If we weren't just passing through town we'd definitely hit The Shack again!

This was a GREAT suggestion from our Uber driver. Get ready to eat a DELICIOUS breakfast. I think we had the buffalo pie. I love gray so it couldn't have went bad!
