The Shack has been around for many years. Before it was a bar it was a tiny cabin at the top of the hill it sits on the bottom of today. Men who would fish the river on their boats would stop in often for gambling and drinks. They would refer to it as "The Shack" thus the name is has today. The Shack went through many phases, as a bait shop and a bait shop/bar. In 2008 it was hit pretty hard by the flood and was redone as The New Shack Tavern. To the right you can check out some of the pictures from the flood. As you can see we didn't let a little water stand in the way of our good time. There have been many additions since then, expanding the patio in the front and opening more space for use in the back are just a few. Come check us out! We promise you won't find a bar with better views or people in town!
