We absolutely love The Shack!! The bartender is great and once he sees us walk in the door, he makes sure there are 2 seats at the bar and has our drinks waiting there for us before we even sit down. Can't get any better service than that! If you haven't been there, it's definitely worth it!!

The server and manager were excellent and prompt to our needs. The Sea Bass and Trout we ordered turned out being excellent as well.

We had the lobster roll and Chick Lobster. Loved them and checking out the lobster tank. I know it sounds simple but this is the best macaroni and cheese I have ever had.

We had mussels for apps which were good. My bf had the fish special of the day, but was not too impressed. I had the Clambake, deterring from my favorite dish, Shack Bouillabaisse. The Clambake did not have the flavoring of the Bouillabaisse. Slight d

We went to Jasper's a few weeks ago. Our waiter was great, taking time to explain the day's catch. We ordered apps and dinner. Unfortunately, the cooks had lost our apps order. Our waiter noticed and offered complimentary desserts for the delay. While waiting for the apps, he also brought us clam chowder. Even though there was a problem with the apps, the situation was handled well by the waiter. Definitely impressed by their service.
