I love the Shack. It's such a relaxed atmosphere and the food is good and plenty! People say that Groton doesn't have a "Downtown"... well I think this may be it. All the locals can be found at the shack. Especially like going for breakfast!

Visited 2x within a week over labor day weekend on our way to Providence. Large portions, great fast friendly service, delicious food, homemade pies to die for. Will return whenever we travel to New England, which is several times a year. Next door to Walgreens.
