Me and wife were booked in today for dinner, firstly have to say that the place is stunning, having to have people eat outdoors is a pain but rather than just handing a takeaway meal and seeingvsomeon on their way they have the outdoors area...looking so good, multiple benches and umbrellas which are needed on a scorcher of the weekend we had, they have a gazebo area set up with a few tables which is nice brings back a bit of normality, we arrived after making a bolong and were seated we asked if we would like a drink and gave us time to have a look at the menu, after getting out drinks we placed out order we shared the hot wings made with their house sauce which is SO GOOD! We devoured them, I had the double steak burger and my wife had smoked chicken pasta, both were so delicious, when our food arrived I asked our server if we could try the "XXX" sauce, a few mins late she arrives withba full jar and said the chef says if you can handle the heat you can have it, well challenge accepted, the sauce is so nice (could be spicier TBH but I'm a chilli head) but the interaction made us feel so welcome and was a good memory, on the way out we had paid and I picked more sauce (may be addicted now) and the chef runs after and offers me another rbottle of Peri Peri sauce to try, I have never been treated so well by a place in my life and will let everyone I know about this gem of a place!! Thanks Grill Shack!!More

We had such a lovely dining experience there on Saturday night. The outdoor dining is laid out very well and very covid safe. Service was excellent and very attentive, they regularly checked in on us to make sure we were ok for everything. Thank you...for a brilliant night, will definitely be back. Would recommend the fillet steak on the hot stone and wings (delicious sauce).More

Really enjoyable meal last night with our friends. Atmosphere was lovely even in these covid times. Staff are extremely attentive and very friendly. Overall a lovely outdoor dining experience. Food as alwqys was fantastic. My husbands steak burger which on the specials menu was hands...down the best burger he has ever eaten. My fish was very tasty with a beautiful thin crispy batter. Rotisserie chicken, nachos, key lime pie all faultless. Lovely to see the food cooked in front of us. Great to be out and about again and this was worth waiting for!More

1st visit this evening. With many more planned. The food was sublime. Have to recommend the ribs, steaks and especially the eat & mess.. Beautifully presented. Staff were inviting and the chefs obviously were on top form. Service was exceptional. Highly recommended.

A group of us came here for a reunion birthday. I had heard great reviews so had great expectations. Its in the middle of the nowhere, looks good from the outside with good outdoor lighting and seating. The inside is a different story, very compact,...very narrow, very tight seating arrangement, very hot. I was looking forward to a steak but did not want a steak on the stone as whilst on the stone the steak keeps cooking and I like it rare, so when I asked if the chef could cook me a rare steak instead of a steak on the stone, I was told that this was not an option!! At the end of the day, I paid for a steak that I cooked/overcooked on a stone myself. With Covid 19, I found the restrictions in place, not great. The staff had masks but customer mask wearing was not being enforced whilst waiting for seating. The table we were at was very very cramped. The board on which the steak on the stone came out on was so big that each one took over a good portion of the table. We ourselves were so cramped that I was forced to eat without being able to move my elbows from my sides, very very uncomfortable.! This shack may be more suited to couples, as they cannot cater comfortably and safely for larger groups.More

The food here is always excellent. We've been a few times each year since it opened at Roche's and love the burgers, steaks and sides the chef's serve up. They're doing a great job of following all covid protocol with masks worn by staff and...screens up between tables etc. I always look forward to going back for a great feast and a pint.More

This is nothing short of a hidden gem! The whole place is animated in its decor and personality alone - staff are wonderfully polite helpful but also comical which is such a rarity - all extremely professional with an attitude that makes you want to...come back - then there’s the food! Tasty menu with something for everyone we could not fault anything - the manager has everything running to a T - the food is just fantastic and we can’t wait to go back. Well done guysMore

Came for a late lunch on a Thursday. Welcomed by a very friendly team, the service was excellent. Beautiful setting and great atmosphere. Had chicken wings with the head chef’s original hot sauce to start, they were amazing, best I have tasted (we left with...several jars of the sauce!). Main was a rib eye steak on the stone, mouth still watering at the thought of it. The review wouldn’t do the desert justice, we left very full. Don’t pass this place by.More
