“Not a place you would want to go”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

This used to be a great fish place. Once they moved to their new setting they went down hill fast. Service is only fair, food is generally over cooked, dry and tasteless.

“Really greasy fish”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

I ordered the fish and chips plate and it was obviously not cooked right. The fish was soggy and dripping with grease. Don't think I will ever try again.

“the shack was demolished, years later resurrected as a restaurant”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

I loved the old Shack, very fond memories there as a kid, the fresh market and the restaurant. it was a busy place. fastforward 20ish years and it was reimagined, it's prettier, probably more hygenic, but it lacks the heart it had - and the food is meh.

“the old one is in the picture”
Reviewed 21 January 2013

the new one downtown is not nearly as fun as the old one was, great shrimp! I had a neighbor who loved it so much she took antihistamine before she ate it since she was allergic!
