The Chicken Shack

The Chicken Shack, located on Central Square in Seaside, Florida, is a family-friendly dining restaurant. Brought to you by Chef Jim Shirley and the Great Southern Café, The Chicken Shack’s structure is ideal for those wanting to share a delicious yet casual meal together. Whether you're craving Sweet Tea-Brined Fried Chicken on the bone, tenders, or one of their many sandwiches or wraps, The Chicken Shack has what you need for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Open daily.

Orders are made at the walk-up window, and then guests can either sit in the large, open seating area or take their food-to-go as they explore Seaside. With everything from family sized “buckets” of chicken to juicy burgers and Nashville hot style friend chicken, The Chicken Shack has a little something for everyone. Breakfast is served all day featuring beignets, honey butter chicken biscuits, chicken & waffles, and breakfast burritos.

Along with this all-star lineup, guests can indulge their side cravings with french fries, deviled potato salad, tater tots, and the best garlic butter rolls you have ever tasted. Don't forget to grab a cold beverage, beer, wine, or hit up their neighbors and fellow Shirley establishment, The C-Bar for a cocktail.
