Good menu with lots of choices. All of our eggs were cooked just the right way. Great home fries !! The portions were large too and we saw other plates that came out of the kitchen that looked yummy! We will be back!!

This is one of the best family restaurants in the Waterford, CT area. The food is prepared to order so there is a little wait - but it's fresh and worth it. Their pies are home-made and delicious.

I visited with my family, and everyone was very happy with the items that they ordered. This place is low-key, but the food is on point.

When I think of going out for breakfast, it is the Shack that tops my list. Expect to run into friends that you have not seen in years. Lunch and dinner are always available and don't forget the dessert.
