“Nice dinner and fun dancing!”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Food was good, although not large plates. Margaritas seemed to be made from mix, so stick with something else or beer. Dancing was great, local band played great sets. Vibe was excellent. Enjoy.

“Go thirsty, not hungry.”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Eat something simple and cheap cuz the foods not that good. The place is in a funky location, but as a watering hole and a place for music it's great. Go for music and cheap beer.

“Hi priced bad food with good band.”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

I had heard this was a great place to go, but I can't in good conscience recommend it. We were willing to pay the high prices because I heard the food was good. Both dinners, BBQ chicken, BBQ ribs, were both undercooked and tough. The "salad bar" consisted of a bowl of chick peas, bow tie pasta dish, cole slaw, and German potato salad, eventually some lettuce came out. Even the brownie desert had been heated in the microwave to long and the brownie was rubbery.
I don't like to leave unfavorable reviews, however if I spending $80.00 for two meals, I would at least like it to be good.

They are only open on Monday nights and we were lucky to find this place on accident! Food was great, but the atmosphere was fabulous! We loved the Shack!
