Chez Shack

An off-the-beaten-track locale, tried-and-true menu, and eclectic ambiance all allow this restaurant to shine. Created by Duffy, one of the most beloved restaurantuers in the region, Chez Shack is modeled after Duffy's first restaurant "The Love Shake" (now known as Duffy's Love Shack) on St. Thomas. Duffy also created Duffy's of Esperanza, on the island of Vieques.


Grilled to perfection, the menu at Chez Shack is all chicken, steak, and shell fish. It changes often based on the whims of the kitchen staff. Although most agree that the food is good all the time, the weekly Monday night barbecue is where they really shine.

Chez Shack is a popular grill that happens to specialize in International cuisine. The style of dining and service here is considered very casual. Diners are welcome to come by to enjoy dinner only, so make sure to plan your visit around the limited hours they are open.


This rustic, wooden shack on the outskirts of town is eclectic and funky, but more in personality than decor (of which there is very little).
