The potatoes we (4 of us) ordered were all over-baked. Instead of being white and fluffy on the inside ours were a darker yellowish-brown. I had mine with chicken fried steak and gravy and there was not very much steak on the potato. The gravy...More

Trip Advisor didn't let us down. Great potatoes. We got the CCR and it was delicious. They have a kid's menu as well if your kids don't like baked potatoes. Would go back again.

There's really not much to do in Huntsville, which is surprising since it's a college town. But potato shack offers some pretty good cheap food, drinks, pool tables, and a place to hang out.

We had a great time at this restaurant with our SHU student. It is a casual, favorite hang out with around 25 different baked potato offerings and toppings. Large outdoor patio area. Fun, inexpensive and delicious.

I had heard good things about this place but I was disappointed. For a place that only serves potatoes the two potatoes we ordered were hard in places and the toppings were just good. I will not return and I'm sure there are better places...More
