Salted Caramel is by far the best Ice Cream I've ever had. My experience there was wonderful. Gentlemen and lady at the window were very knowledgeable on the products they have in stock and extremely friendly. A little low on their food supply but, still enough to satisfy me and prompt me to come and write a comment. I will for sure be coming back and will encourage my friends to stop by as well.. Great job!
My husband and I moved to the Ocean Shore/ Palm Springs area on Oct. 1st 2012. We have tried every restaurant we could find in the area. We seen this particular place as we were leaving Bing's across the street for lunch, and decided to try Chef's Shanty Ice Creamery for dinner. We arrived about 7:50pm looked at menu decided on a hamburger and a corn dog both with fries. Had planned on eating there since the weather was nice.. But it was so dirty and cluttered. Which was no problem we live close so we will take home. I am standing at the front looking at all the ice cream flavors and I see this lady put our fries in the microwave, I decided to watch a little longer and believe it are not she cooked all of our food in the microwave. When it was time to get our order we ask for kept. mustard, salt, pepper and she had NONE!
In my personal opinion the lady working with long dark hair was more interested in showing off her cleavage, and closing up shop than serving us hot fresh food. I don't know about other people but I don't like paying 6.00$ for a microwaved corn dog that was just thrown in the garbage.
We plan on being in this area for a long time, but will never stop at this place again. And will warn anyone we meet of the cooking habits of this place.
This place is very dirty, I don't know how they stay open. I don't know why we thought to give this place a chance, anyway. Our burgers weren't just greasy - They were slimy!! And the babycake cupcake things tasted very stale. Service was bad, the girl in the window seemed to have a nasty attitude, and acted like a bored teenager. Usually I'd chalk it up to an off day, but when we sat down at the picnik tables we noticed that someone left a dirty diaper under it! I didn't know picnik tables that people eat off of could be used as a changing table!! That's so unsanitary, it makes me sick just thinking about it... I decided to let the girl at the window know that there was a soiled diaper in the eating area, she didn't even look surprised when I told her. And she had the nerve to tell me "It's not my job, if you don't like it, move it." ...Excuse me? Not your job? but I will be calling some people to see about making some changes or shutting the place down. Bottom line, Chef's Shanty is not safe to eat at!
Great food (crabcakes, burgers and yummy sweet potato fries!) and great ice cream (hard and soft serve). Also love the cupcakes. Very friendly service - perfect place to stop to eat and get some sweets.
Residing in the Hammocks is great, however when I first arrived here I realized there was nothing other than Publix's where you could grab a sandwich or a piece of chicken. When the gentleman who owns the Chef's Shanty took over the run down often undesirable snack shack, life in the Hammocks became more interesting. It offers the residents and travelers on A1A, a nice clean establishment, where you can get a very juicy burger along with either freedom or sweet potato fries or, a variety of hard and soft serve ice cream.at a very reasonable price. When you arrive at the Shanty you are greeted by a very cheerful and personable staff and on occasion by the owner if he is not at the grill creating a comforting culinary meal Just the other day I decided I was not going to cook and have a mess to clean and hopped on my bike and went to the Shack for lunch. I had a very juicy burger and soda, topped off with a creamy chocolate soft serve, all for $10.00. Beats traveling over the bridge and paying the toll along with consuming gas. Since the Shack has opened I have become a loyal patron. I wish the Shack success.
I really love this place. The foods great, ice cream yummy, cup cakes to die for!!! Everyone is very, very friendly. The hamburgers are wonderful and the fries and sweet potatoe frys are the best anywhere! I recommend it to everyone!
