Amazing pizza and they do half-half as making a choice is difficult. Chicken is perfectly done - as you would expect seeing it is a speciality. Great food, enticing menu choices, friendly service. I'll be back!

Very nice and clean with relaxed atmosphere. Everything that one needs to stay away from home. Dissapointed that restaurant was closed on 1/2 January.

Great pizzas, and chicken. Really great restaurant. Prices are good. I have eaten here a few times and never been disappointed with my meal. Always gone in a large group which is a challenge for the waiter but they do the best to manage. Great for family with young kids.

I have been visiting Chicken Shack since it started, and people do not know what excellent food that is served daily at this venue.
