We like The Shack for breakfast. They have a cheerful, efficient staff, the breakfast usually comes out quickly. The food is hearty with generous portions. Daily specials are always creative and decently priced. My one big hang-up: when the tables are being bused, they wipe...More

Ordered bacon, 2 eggs and home fries with an English muffin. There was enough for 2 people. Reasonably priced.

I love the Shack. It's such a relaxed atmosphere and the food is good and plenty! People say that Groton doesn't have a "Downtown"... well I think this may be it. All the locals can be found at the shack. Especially like going for breakfast!

Visited 2x within a week over labor day weekend on our way to Providence. Large portions, great fast friendly service, delicious food, homemade pies to die for. Will return whenever we travel to New England, which is several times a year. Next door to Walgreens.
