The gang of five decided on lunch here and we weren't disappointed. Sandwiches and melts all around and plenty to drink filled us up. The clam chowder was also very good. If you are looking for the place with good food, served by an attentive wait staff, this is the place you should go, even if it's out of the way. You won't regret it.

My husband and I visited their restaurant and we basically walked out. Our waitress never made eye contact with us, never acknowledged our presence, waited on a table that was seated after us. We were served coffee by a busperson, she was very nice, but the sweetner I prefer was not at the table, and as I waited..and waited for our waitress to take our order and get the Splenda I needed....That never happened. She never came to our table..never took our order. She even went as far as to bring a friend to the table that was seated after us and discuss contractors that they had used. I guess if you are not a "regular", you are not worth a second glance. I complained to gentleman who seated us and asked for a bill for the coffee we never drank and his response was..well, if you are that unhappy.....you don't have to pay for your coffee... I wrote to them about this experience and never got a response. Well, we will never go to this restaurant again.

The Shack has multiple locations now, but started in East Lyme. The food is always good and reasonably priced. A great place for breakfast or lunch, though I have never visited it for dinner.

I absolutely LOVE the shack for Sunday morning breakfast! Make sure to get there early as they fill up quick! Never a bad meal, ALWAYS up beat and pleasant staff. If you've never tried it I highly recommend you give them a try!
