The hush puppies are outstanding. Great service and food but get there early the place fills fast. The grits and scrimp are the bomb

The Shack is one of those Southern hid a way restaurants that you want to keep to yourself but have to tell someone how down to earth the food is and at good prices. With a daily menu that changes with down home southern cooking style, it is not only filling but meets the local and tourist budget for vacationers.... More

This is a very homey atmosphere as the same people eat there on a regular basis. The food is fresh, tasty and satisfying at the right price. You know it's good as the parking lot is almost always full.

First time trying the Shack - so we went for breakfast. It was a busy morning but the service was good. Breakfast was prepared like we asked. Coffee was hot & fresh. Iced tea was fresh. Tomato juice was cold!

We have been coming to Cherry Grove for years. I am embarrassed to tell you we never ate at this place before. The food is as close to home cooking in the Grand Strand as I have ever come to. The staff was friendly and you can tell the locals come to this place. We will always come here in... More

Heard good things about this place and gave it a shot. The decor lives up to the name. It is nothing special at all. The food was mediocre. The fried shrimp was cooked thoroughly, but the fries were overdone. None of them were longer than your finger. The special was fish and when we asked what type of fish, the... More

Great service, fair prices and very good food. A bargain for lunch. The kind of place where you can't go wrong. Friendly, quick and very good lunch entrees. We all enjoyed it and my son and girlfriend are regulars. I quickly saw why.

We stopped at The Shack for breakfast on our way out of town. Everything was great! It was busy, but our server was very attentive and our food was delicious! The portions were large and filling for reasonable prices! Great place to eat!

After reading the reviews, I had high expectations and was not disappointed. Fried chicken and fried fish were both great and I swear those were the best field peas I have ever eaten but don't tell my mama! Service was fast and friendly. Can't wait to come back.
