    Our food came out in stages with a party of 7. We got 2 peoples food, then 20 minutes later got 2 more then 5 minutes another. One of our party for her fries a little before we left. It was a birthday celebration and it kind of ruined it all with some eating cold food. Not like we remembered Pizza Shack for sure.

    It definitely isn’t like the old Pizza Shack. It’s an upgrade! All the interior and exterior has changed for the better. All the staff is very friendly. We went for the lunch buffet and it was crowded. They kept up on getting fresh pizza out.

    Similar to the original Pizza Shack I grew up going to with my family. The buffet is priced high considering it doesn’t include the drinks. The prices for the buffet for children under 10 was high compared to the original Pizza Shack. Make the prices more family friendly. I grew up going every Monday with my dad, siblings, and grandparents. The food was good.

    We were bummed to learn the Pizza Buffet is only on the weekends and Monday night, so didnt start off strong. The salad bar was basic with salad, general toppings, and dressings, no extra fruit, cottage cheese, or jello/pudding, so the price of $12.95 seemed a bit expensive if you're not taking multiple trips. One of my fond memories of Pizza Shack was trying multiple pizza flavors, so we got two personal pan pizzas to share. The breadsticks were warm, but there wasn't anything too special about them. Overall for 2 Salad bars, 4 breadsticks, and 2 personal pizzas, it cost around $55. before tip. I will likely only go back to The Shack on days/nights with the Pizza bar as that seems to be the best overall value.

    The Shack echoes reminders of the past with the former restaurant, "Pizza Shack". The pizza buffet and salad bar are just as I remember with the benefits of a completely remodeled restaurant experience. The unique layout of the restaurant sparks a sort of curiosity when you first walk in the door. A payphone in the entrance was a nice surprise that I was not expecting. The decor grass provides a feeling of nature inside a wide open space with unique geometry for the building layout. The only drawback I can find, if any, is the flooring. The chairs and the tables slide too easily for comfort but I realize this this is good for the chairs as well as making it easier to keep the place clean. I will definitely be back. Thank you for taking the bitterness of Pizza Shack closing and skipping past bittersweet while turning it into just the sweet.

    We had a reservation so we were seated quickly. The hostess took us to a table, she put down one menu (party of 2) and walked away without a word. We watched everyone receive service except for us. Once we flagged down a gentleman for help he sent a server our way. We decided to try the salad/pizza buffet, sight unseen. The salad area was a mess, food items mixed into others. No one appeared to be tending to this area. The pizza was dry, without a lot of toppings, a sprinkle here and there. Just omit the spaghetti if you are offered it. The building is very nice, but the area with the buffet is loud.

    Our server and food was great but when we arrived and waiting for our table one of the other servers was really rude. One server was getting ready to seat us in a booth and yes I had a reservation when the other rudely says I’m not sure why they are seating then there it’s for reservations. I did have to say we have a reservation but the server was still abrupt and rude not appreciated. She didn’t even say oh sorry for her attitude. If that’s how they are going to treat people we won’t go back!

    The salad bar was very good as usual, we ordered the spaghetti to come with it, and it was not very good. Just had the mariner sauce nothing like the meat sauce they used to have, I hope that they will bring it back like they had before.

    Salad bar was fresh however it doesn't have regular breadsticks on it anymore. Pizza was not good, crust was tuff as nails , spaghetti wasn't anything to write home about , looks like it had very little marinara sauce with no meat or meatballs. We had the buffet. This food isn't nearly as good as the original pizza shack. Won't be going back.

    We went for lunch and it was very busy. We had a 12:45 reservation and I had asked for a table in the bar. When we checked in there was some confusion on where to seat us and we ended up in the main dining area. We ordered a deluxe pizza and bread sticks and both were delicious. Our server was awesome too. They have a salad and pizza buffet that seemed very popular. We had a good view and new pizzas were brought out pretty quickly. I would definitely go again but probably not during lunch when school is on break 😊

    The food was good, my wife had the tenderloin sandwich and fries. She said it was great and would order it again. I got half rack ribs and Mac and cheese. Mac and cheese were very good. The ribs were more than I could eat, and very tasty. Service and food will only get better with time. Can’t wait to go back and try something different.

    I'm not sure they are ready to open. Ate there on Thursday evening, March 28. 6:45 pm reservations had been made as recommended. My mistake for not realizing the pizza buffet wasn't open during dinner, but thought that was odd since that is the main draw. Our server was incredibly sweet but "kept getting pulled into parties in the back." It was 20 minutes before we could make drink orders, and another 20 minutes for her to get my date's drink and us order food. His personal pizza was fine, my breaded chicken sandwich was barely edible; thin, dry, rock hard, not warm. My water was never refilled, date had to ask for his to be. Another 30 minutes before we saw the server to get bill. Again she'd been "pulled into parties in the back" and apparently the server she tried to give us to got confused on the table numbers and never checked on us. We were there for almost 2 hours. The space is beautiful and a much needed change for this community, but a bit loud in the front dining room since there is nothing to absorb sound. I'm sure I'll be back as choices are limited in this town, but it might be a while. If reservations are highly recommended, then be prepared for the expected crowd.

    Thrilled. OG Shack breadsticks, pizza and sub (not over cooked so stellar!) were great! Service bumpy in spots, but it takes a minute to let a brand new team gel. Everyone was super nice and responsive. Next time I’ll try new stuff. Reasonable pricing, and quite honestly, interior was a perk we have needed for a minute.

    As someone who was wanting pizza snack; it just isn’t the same. They do have a lot of the same things -salad bar was 10/10, the pizza tasted good, the cinnamon sugar bread sticks were awesome, but the spaghetti had changed. The cheese curds tasted so good just not very many in an order. The dessert was good as well. I will also say, at the buffet make sure you check your plates. There was a whole stack that didn’t get cleaned in their dish washer. It’s a new restaurant, with new owners, and it won’t be the same. And that’s okay. It will take a while for everyone to get all of the newness out. Excited for the future and hope to go back!

    Made a reservation for 845. And they closed at 9. My fault for not googling the hours. The pizza buffett was empty and they were not re stocking it. Server asked if we wanted spaghetti (it comes with the buffett) and they were out. Also wouldn't refill my drink bc they had already taken the soda machine apart.
