Great place to eat with lots of choices at a very reasonable price. The staff were very friendly and the food was delivered in a timely manner even on a busy Saturday morning. Crowded but ok if you are willing to sit at the counter.

My husband and I stayed in Groton 2 nights. Both mornings we had breakfast in The Shack. Both days the food was excellent, we had substantial portions, consistently good service. We did have to wait a bit yo be seated but it was worth it.

Service was sparce but friendly. The food more than compensated--I would actually rated 5 star but the parking lot was full, as was this restaurant!....No one leaves from this place hungry, and the menu was huge, too !
