The Food was incredible greasy, not of the ingredients seemed to be fresh. It has been a month since we ate here and I still get the sick feeling in my stomach. I liked the beer on tap, which helped me wash down the food that was served to us. Both my husband and I got sick afterwards. The waitress... More

We were looking for a quick place for lunch. We stopped in mid afternoon, and it was pretty busy. Our server was attentive, marketing sure our drinks were always full. The burgers were good, and the sides large and plentiful, but extra. Considering the location, it was a good value.

The food was pretty mediocre, though the fry basket was crazy generous. The waitress was surly from the moment we sat down. She all but rolled her eyes at our order. Someone banged on and rattled the door repeatedly while my child and I were in the bathroom, despite my alerting them that the restroom was occupied. When we came... More

Great food, awesome atmosphere...the onion rings were amazing! It literally looks like a shack at flat, but it's super fun!

Love, love, this place. It's a local bar without any locals. This is the place where all the locals that have been in the area for a few years or months go to call a place home. Everyone is welcome.

I used to go here all the time when I lived out here 10 years ago. It is just as a I remember. The wings are big and have a good hot sauce on them but not overwhelming. Good bacon burger and fries. Very laid back. Nice to sit outside with the tv on. Service was good overall too.

Although this is a sports bar, the food is good. It was a good place for a group to meet, but it's a little loud on game night! Good service, too.

We were driving by Kailua, it was lunchtime, checked TA, "The Shack" was the #2 restaurant that popped up. We pulled into the parking lot and almost pulled back out. It has the look of a dive. It is a seat yourself, the waitress was right there taking our drink orders. We decided on the turkey club and cheeseburger w/pepperjack... More
