Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a great time we had here! Great chicken, home made chips with a lovely salad, bottle of white wine, a couple of beers, a Baileys and a Barraquito - 42E, cash only. But the highlight of the visit was Steve and the atmosphere he...creates with all of his guests. So funny, hard working, on point, constantly making sure everyone is ok. There was also a lady serving, along with Steve. She too was equally on point - this was a real find, one we will be visiting again when we’re back next year.More

This is a great cheap night simply chicken chips and salad. To clarify that is the menu. It’s better to book as it gets extremely busy. We always have a great time after 25+years and make sure to include it on our holiday. Despite being...extremely busy Steve tries his best to see everyone for a chat and little catch up. The food is tasty and we all love the alioli so much. Looking forward to seeing you again this year Steve xxMore

Once you have found the Shack, then the rest is plain sailing. How good can a 4 option food offering be? As good as this. Great quality and a dashing Caledonian Waiter to entertain.

Another absolutely fantastic night with Steve snd his staff. Who knew chicken, chips, salad, baguette and alioli could be so good. Steve works so hard to keep his customers happy with good food, lots of drinks and entertainment. Love you Stevie you are the best!!

The chicken shack was recommended to us and what a great recommendation it was, from the moment we arrived we were laughing until we left, the hosts Steve and Linda made us feel very welcome with good old banter, may I say at our own...expense, I was surprised there was no menu, but didn’t need to be, the concept was brilliant and the atmosphere was great. I would highly recommend and we hope to return next year.More

A simple idea that works 100% of the time. The food is always great, the price is always great. The concept of just chicken (plus chips & salad) is such a simple concept but really works. No confusion with huge menus, the food is freshly...cooked there and then. The owner is fantastic, if it’s your first time or you’re a regular, he meets everyone with the same friendly attitude. If you’re in the area the chicken shack is a must.More

What a wonderful night we had, the food was so tasty and the drinks kept flowing, a perfect evening catching up with our friends. Both the owners were fantastic, Steve is the best "front of house" anywhere and his partner works so hard too. It...may not have a fancy menu, no cocktails and no pretence but they do their upmost to give you a fun night out. After 26 years they must be doing something right.More
