    Great place to go with your pup, rain or shine

    Ate ther Sept 7, 2023 with our two Bernese. Took the clam showder and the Maine lobster roll. Staff was friendly, food was great. And their « patio is wheater proected, so that’s one of the rare places you can eat on a rainy day.

    I would go back

    Based on reviews on Bring Fido, my husband and I went to The Shack for lunch on our first day in OOB. I had a salad that came with nice looking lettuce, onions, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, carrots, and mushrooms. I also added lobster. It was 4 oz. of meat, which was plenty. I got blue cheese dressing on the side, which was just average. My husband had the fried scallop BLT with maple mayo. He really enjoyed it. I had a bite of his scallop and I agree. He got a side of fries that he requested be well done. They were nice and crispy, but a bit too salty. We managed to eat them all between the two of us, however. All of the seating is outdoors but undercover. They allow dogs on the lower level. Our waitress was very sweet and efficient and offered water for our pup. It was a nice find!

    First time taking our dog on vacation with us. we saw on Bring Fido this place. we finally found it , the place wasn’t to clean but it is what it is. Server was super nice that was a plus +, and did make a burger for our dog. everyone was nice.

    Highly Recommend!

    My wife and kids were at Palace Playland so Sadie and I went to get on the wait-list. It was a busy night so wait was going to be about an hour. Plus dogs are only allowed on the lower deck. After a few minutes a spot opened up at the bar so I was able to have a cocktail while I waited. When our table was ready, I called my wife and she and the kids came over. The staff were all hard working and pleasant. It was busy but they operated like a well oiled machine. Food and drinks were delicious! Will definitely go back next time we are at OOB.
