Reviews for The Shack Tavern

Solid bar with lots of outdoor seating. I was there for the All Naturals concert (have them back soon guys!) and really enjoyed it. Great view of the river. I didn't try the food, but someone with me ate and said it was good. It'd be great if they added in a few taps, but the service was friendly and the crowd had a good energy. I'll probably make it back soon, even faster if they keep hosting local live music!

So, are you looking for a place with some eclectic atmosphere? This is it. Don't know about the cold weather season but on a nice Summer day you can't beat a seat at the upper Tiki Bar. Cold beer (cans only), good music and a great view of the river. Food is good, but you have to walk down to the main building to pick it up when the buzzer goes off. Still it was a good time to make a side trip to get rid of the first few beers.

Restaurant inside is small and cramped. The outdoor patio had garbage cans full of raw garbage with one of the cans on its side spilling fly covered food, paper plates and plastic wear. It was loud and dusty. The food was typical bar fare and sub par. The service was slow and some items on the menu were unavailable. The parking lot was dusty and ill-defined. Cars parked haphazardly making it difficult to back out without hitting something. We won't go back.
