Reviewed 15 July 2018 via mobile

We saw the reviews when we visited the Vaal for a night. We thought we simply couldn’t miss it, but we were disappointed on arrival. Perhaps it was too early at 11:45 because it was still very quiet. The atmosphere improved once the live music started.

We were in a bit of a rush and our food (a simple order) took ages to come out. Tables that arrived after us seemed to get their food at about the same time and it was impossible to get a waitress’s attention.

It looks like a nice place. Interesting decor, but we were disappointed with our first visit.

Thank Brent B

Good day Brent. As part of management, I would like to apologise for the experience. We usually strive to be better than this. May I ask when your visit was to The Shack in the interest of quality management and improving our service offering? Thank you, Stephan

The Shack is a very unique little restaurant on the border of Sasolburg and vanderBijl in the Vaal. This little gem has the best food in the area. Decorated like a shack with taxi and all, you cannot go wrong. Have a rest on the veranda, or inside under the canopy. Whatever you do do not miss out on the good food and the ambiance of this family orientated restaurant. The new management is young and looks out for those families with children that wants to get out of the city and just chill on a Sunday afternoon. Let management take care of your next birthday party, office conference or just to chill.

I really enjoy the uniqueness of this restaurant/pub. It is like a run-down shack, but nicely decorated and full of character.

I love The Shack, it's a must visit place. If you see Eisbein night, make a plan to go! My favourite standard thing on the menu is the chicken liver starter which is huge, perfectly spicy and served in a fresh homemade bun.
