Looking for a feed after a night out at the clubs? Don't really want to sit on the sidewalk under an umbrella eating a kebab? Want to keep drinking while you eat? Want your food faster than other eateries can serve up? The Local Shack is the place to go.
We were attracted by the sign outside that tempted us with $10 wood fired pizzas. Walking in through the double doors, it was like we had walked into someone's party. Decked out like a surf shack, there were a couple of surfboards, some ropes and life buoys amongst the many tables, fully stocked bar, woodfire oven and a huge television screen.
The place was packed and full of lively chatter and laughter. Seating was in the form of booths, single tables and long tables. The staff are so casually dressed, you couldn't tell who were staff and who were customers. Although in saying this customer service was impeccable.
We were ushered to a large share table and had to share with 4 other groups of diners. We were offered games like Connect 4 to play while we browsed the menu. With a selection of liqueurs and alcohol, some were there only to drink, others were there for full meals. We were there for a combination of the two.
Suffering from food envy while scanning the food served up on other tables we decided to order a couple of pizzas, some fries and cocktails and spirits to satisfy our stomachs. We were very impressed with the quality of the late night food that was served. The seasoned fries were delicious and the woodfired pizzas served up on wooden chopping boards were gulped down quickly.
So if you're looking for a place to go at the end of the night without having 'end' your night, head down to The Local Shack. Join in with the party and have a bite to eat as well. The casual late night atmosphere in this place definitely makes it a winner.
