  • Kayla B.Minnesota's nearest coast is of the Great Lakes variety but somehow Smack Shack figured out how to bring delicious (Texas toast! fresh tarragon!) lobster rolls to the center of the country

    55555 by Kayla B.

  • Glenn L.Just a few years ago, you never saw a lobster roll anywhere in the midwest. Now just about every restaurant, cafe, and corner bar has them. Smack Shack was the first, and it's still the best.

    55555 by Glenn L.

  • MattLoved the Connecticut style lobster role.

    55555 by Matt

  • Josh GrutzaThe cold lobster roll is the one you want. The fries are a good upgrade. I would probably eat them until I threw up if I had enough.

    33333 by Josh Grutza

  • Doug W.The BEST wings I have ever had. Hands down. They are fried with bacon grease and served with bacon blue cheese dressing. Add a little OLD BAY seasoning, a beer, and your set.

    55555 by Doug W.

  • City Pages Street TeamThose with a bit of gustatory gumption should order the King Roll: a good half-pound of fat lobster hunks--studded with crisp bits of cucumber and celery, and dribbling a seasoned mayo.

    55555 by City Pages Street Team

  • Food NetworkStuffs the menu with freshly made lobster rolls, po'boys and the house favorite, lobster mac and cheese. Combining lightly poached lobster meat with a fontina and Taleggio cheese sauce.

  • Fred E.Happy Anniversary Leslie, Patt ,Fred . Honey mom & dad love you. Geo & Bird thanks for joining us.

    55555 by Fred E.

  • City Pages Street TeamLittle in this world is more satisfying than digging a tiny fork into an open claw and removing, in one fell swoop, a massive piece of sweet lobster meat and at Smack Shack this is endless.

    55555 by City Pages Street Team

  • Craig M.Get the fish tacos

    33333 by Craig M.

  • Christo C.Watch out for Punchy. He's in the lobster bath. Steaming. Waiting. Watching.

    33333 by Christo C.

  • Tom JThe steak was good , oysters good ..

    33333 by Tom J

  • Sara A.For a $80 meal I'm very disappointed.. Our food was cold and the Lobster was over cooked. :-(

    22222 by Sara A.

  • Craig B.Of course anything with lobster in it is great, but I will tell you the fried chicken is out of this world. The beef tacos are fantastic as well (the tacos are small though)

    55555 by Craig B.

  • Steve M.Best fried chicken downtown. Maybe in the state. Maybe in the region? Only had it once. Dopamine receptors are firing.

    55555 by Steve M.

  • Tia T.The Perch Po-Boy is KILLER! The Perch is local (Red Lake, MN)! Start with the Smack Wings! Secret is the sauce, can you say bacon? Best place to chill in North Loop/Warehouse District!

  • KC K.Fish boil!

    55555 by KC K.

  • Sara M.Awesome bartender, food, and environment! Try the lobster Mac and cheese. Best part: dog friendly patio for summer :)

  • KImberly L.Desserts!!

    55555 by KImberly L.

  • Eric S.The lobster roll and lobster mac are good, but don't come expecting portions to be that big. If it were cheaper, it would be amazing. But you are paying Manny's prices for food truck food.

    55555 by Eric S.

  • Zach D.Lobster roll and lobster mac and cheese are the food truck favorites, but don't forget the amazing po'boys and the lobster corn dog appetizer.
