The Shack was next to my hotel so I stopped in after a long day doing disaster recovery efforts. Awesome find! The raw oysters are great. The grouper sandwich is moist and tasty and the prices stay under anyone’s budget. Cool bar inside, picnic tables...More

Parking is terrible, The parking lot is small and many of the lots close to Byrds are tow zones. I would getting there early and finding metered parking or a lot. Byrds is worth a walk!
