OK. so a couple of things. First the food is on point. It's a narrow menu but what they do the do well. Burgers are great and the skillet of haddock fish dish was beautiful, its basically a chowder. The baskets the burgers & fries...come in are too small. I can't be bothered waiting for a steak to cook on a stone so it's a turn off for me but that just a personal thing. Beers in the pub are beautiful and the atmosphere is great. Everyone who goes here knows the craic with the pub etc So here's the deal. It's clear the Manager has had zero hospitality training. Rude, abrupt and confrontational.... obviously so. This was my second visit and same behavior. Everyone in our group commented on it. If he is in charge of the ( very young ) waiting staff God knows how he's treating them. Chef in the open plan kitchen is upbeat guy and you can see he's the one building the atmosphere and he enjoys what he is doing. Bottom line, you will enjoy yourself here but you will think twice about returning because of the Manager in the restaurant.More

We visited for a special family meal as a farewell dinner for our son and grand kids returning to the USA. eat outdoors in garden. The table was needing maintenance and some paint. Some of us chose steak, this was a mistake. One of us...decided to have Eton mess for dessert, instead of meringue in it they chose to put broken up digestive biscuits. When we mentioned this to waitress she said there was no delivery of meringues that day. However, he was not advised when ordering that there were no meringues. We have always been satisfied in the past when eating here and recommended to many friends. Not any more. Sadly will not be returningMore

Just had the best lunch, absolutely delishious. We shared the steak on the stone with prawns, ribs, burger and brownie with icecream. Everything was amazing. Ribs were fall off the bone! Staff were all extremely welcoming and friendly. We had our toddler with us and...he loved it! Highly recommend.More

Terrific food and wonderful service from young and very pleasant staff. Lovely place too. But on the night we visited, the 'man in charge' was abrupt and downright rude to my enquiry about a booked table. Bad hair day obviously but really? Who needs it?...Basic manners and some small sense of being welcome on the premises is a good thing. After all, the rest of the staff can do it. I'd return there, but better prepared for his aul lip! 😉More

Just back from a fantastic meal at the Grill Shack. We had fillet steak served on hot stone, chilli burger, bbq burger and haddock meals. All were delicious. Desserts also, had key lime pie, brownie sundae and a very cute idea of coffee with mini...dessert which was a small amount of each of their main desserts!! Can't wait for our next meal there! I personally love the atmosphere and the shack look. Tables perfect for seating 4 as the boards for the steak are quite large.More

Call here when passing today. I’ve tried calling before on my way by but always busy. I was earlier today and call In. The food is gorgeous and was not disappointed at all. There was a few of us so we had most items on...the menu no one could fault it, staff were so Friendly and helpful it was a joy. The only reason I did not give them the top rating could be a bit cleaner. We will still be calling in when passing by.More

Booked a table for what I assumed was the grill shack. Instead we were seated in a cabin outside with picnic benches. Setting & Atmosphere was very poor & food at best was moderate. Won’t be dining here again.

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
