The service was great, we ordered 4 burgers, fries and drinks. I the food came out quickly unfortunately the bacon looked like it was chard remains.,the overall taste was ok due to the for mentioned bacon. Total bill including tip was $63,which was on the expensive side for the type of meal

Went for dinner after a day snorkeling on Hanauma Bay. The atmosphere was awesome, the staff was very friendly, and the food was pretty good. But the group of young men out front dropping constant "F" bombs was a HUGE turn off. They were there when we went in around 4:00 pm and were still there when we left about... More

I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed our atmosphere and the service, Kari, but it's a shame to read about your disappointment with the rest of your visit. We definitely have an eclectic group of visitors and we welcome any and all guests, but I'd like to apologize if that made for an uncomfortable meal -- that's definitely never our... More

I recently attended a business meeting at the shack and had a host of delectable tid bits to much on whilst enjoying an excellent selection of cold beverages. I truly enjoy the Kona Beers which are very creamy and wonderful. After my business meeting ended I stayed on in The Shack for more liquid enjoyment. I asked the kindly bar... More

My husband and I went to The Shack for the first time on January 19. It was at noon and they weren't busy so service from Alicia was fine.

We were there on New Years Day, so maybe we hit them when they were overwhelmed. We had a tasty burger and a basket of curly fries. They were what you'd expect.

Thanks for coming by to celebrate New Year's with us, but we're sorry if the service was a little slow. Like you said, we were a bit busy for the holiday and one of our servers had the "New Years Eve Flu" and didn't show , so I hope you can understand that this isn't how we usually are. We're... More

It's bar food. Most foods are fried and it's ok. The Happy Hour is great with beer specials for $3.50. You can sit outside which is a plus or stay inside a watch a game on TV.
