I have been to the Beach Shack countless times. It is probably my favourite "every-day" restaurant. Before I was diagnosed with coeliac disease my favourite dish from the Beach Shack was creamy chicken pesto carbonara with snow peas. Thankfully I was able to replicate this with gluten-free pasta because I don't know how I could live without having it in my life! Now that I can't eat gluten, my favourite dish on the menu is the sirloin steak with a creamy garlic sauce, chips and a garden salad. The creamy garlic sauce is probably one of the best I have tasted, and that is saying something considering I always order that sauce (or equivalent) whenever I get the option at restaurants. They also always cook the steak exactly how I like it. When I say "medium, well-done" I want a little bit of pink but not having blood pouring out everywhere, some restaurant fail to realise this distinction. The chips are fairly standard, but still enjoyable and even though I am not a big fan of salad, I quite enjoy this one.
The ambiance of the Beach Shack is always friendly and calm, which is one of the reasons I enjoy going there so much.
