Latest Tiki Shack news and reviews

JM had a lemonade.
Nichole had a Diet Coke.
The bill was $4, or $2/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole gave Tiki Shack a C- (see our grading rubric).

Tiki Shack, formerly Mad City Crab House, was on the T list, but when it was time for us to go, they were closed for relocation. So we skipped to the next place.

When we returned during the post-U make-ups, they were expanding into what used to be one of those mycologically-reproducing State Street dress stores, and the kitchen was closed.

So we just got some soft drinks and called it good. The patio was expansive and had nice furniture...

Sodas at Tiki Shack

We hadn't been too excited about getting food here anyway, though the chalk menus advertised simple, non-hazardous things like nachos, grilled cheese sandwiches with jalapeños, and "hot Dougs."

We have no idea what any of that fare is like. If you do, share?

I don't know what the food is like either. We've had the same experience as you--every time we've tried to go there they've been closed for one reason or another.
