This is a great place for casual dining, right on Main Street in downtown Redwood City. Great for Sports viewing.

Patty Shack has great hamburgers and sweet potato fries. They have really good sliders for the kids or people with a small aperture. It's a self serve kick back place with picnic tables. I know they serve beer, not sure if they serve wine. The prices are moderate. The only bad thing is the parking.

Love this place; great burgers, great staff, everything is yummy, and they have a good beer selection as well. A nice casual place to grab good eats and watch some sports on TV!

This unassuming restaurant bar is made for spoiling your inner child. They have macaroni and cheese sandwiches. They have Lucky Charms milkshakes. They will put bacon or eggs or avocado or spicy buffalo sauce or grilled onions or pretty much whatever you want on your burger. They have a great beer selection. Lots of big flat tables are great for... More

The food was really good. Not spectacular but good, hearty and filling and the prices were fair ($8-10). The variety was pretty vast and though we only got burgers and a sandwich, there were several soups and salads that I would've tried as well. The staff were friendly and everything seemed clean. Would not hesitate recommending.

Love the bacon burgers with grilled onions! Nothing fancy here, just really good food. Soups, salads, good beer on tap, wine, real ice cream shakes for the kids. From the street, it may look like a dive bar but give yourself a treat & try it.

The Patty Shack combines the sports bar atmosphere with the family style burger place. TV screens keep one up to date on athletic events while offering a variety of delicious sandwiches. If you don't eat meat, try the grilled cheese-its good! Prices are reasonable.

By far the best burgers in the area. Can get them protein style (no bun) with all the other stuff makes for a great burger.

Kind of a dive, more like a bar with tables than a restaurant with a bar, but the burgers are great, the people were friendly, and the draft beer choices are great. Lots of sports on the TVs, good burgers, definitely a place I'll go back to.

Delicious classic burgers, great fries and milkshakes! When you head here, make sure to ask if they have the captain crunch milkshake, totally worth it!
