I just spent 15 minutes waiting at a table on the patio. 3 servers came and went and nobody even spoke to me.

We've eaten here a few times. The food is incredible. I enjoyed the hamburger steak tonight. It's about the best I've ever eaten. The atmosphere is great.

We love this place. The food is very good, and the atmosphere is very laid back. When the weather's nice, the patio is the place to be, and feel free to bring your pup.

The shrimp po-boys were amazing. My daughter really loved the fried oysters . . . and the Jimmy's Chicken Ranch sandwich was awesome. We were so impressed with the Shimmy Shack that we ate there twice in less than 48 hours. Shout outs to our servers: Sydney and Margaret. They took great care of us!

We had some time to kill between appointments, so we stopped here. It was our first time here and wete treated very well. My husband tried the chili and said it was very good while I sipped on my beautiful bloody Mary. The owner makes the unique barstools. Lots of fun.

I love that there usually isn't tourists there. I've gone a few times and youcan tell it's all people who just got off work and wanted a quiet place for a couple drinks and a burger. The food is pretty good and the staff very friendly. We came when my parents came to visit and everyone's food disappeared from their... More

We have been meaning to stop in and check this place out since moving nearby recently and we should have come sooner. The debris cheese fries are awesome!!!! Everyone greeted us when we walked in, and the bartender was really nice! We will be back for sure!!!

We stumbled upon this restaurant. It looked so interesting we stopped. It has stools with legs from different people and careers. You can eat inside or outside under umbrellas. The food was very good and my husband really liked his shrimp stuffed po boy. My salad was wonderful and tasty. Highly recommended!

Thank Ruth R
