One again the Shack is back for 2018. Menu items are always consistent in a fun friendly waterside venue. Staff treats everyone like family. The season should be great fun again. Don't miss the special events around 4th of July and pirates and wrenches weekends.

I saw dogs out on the dock but didn't see any on the deck. I didn't see any signs. But then they didn't have signs up for smoking and you weren't allowed. You had to walk out towards the front. Sorry wish I was more helpful.
