I always get excited to hear of a new restaurant opening here in Nocatee. More food options is always a good thing. I have heard many friends speak highly of M Shack located at St. Johns Town Center in Jacksonville. Everyone raves of their burgers and shakes. I didn’t get a chance to try out the Jacksonville location, however I was happy when I learned of one being built right here in my neighborhood. I had the chance to take my family to the new Nocatee location and review some of the food on their menu.

Welcome to M Shack, a collaboration by the Medure brothers – Matthew & David – fusing the old fashioned burger joint with style and fresh ingredients. M Shack burgers are made with all natural, hormone-free beef ground fresh daily. Juicy, all beef hot dogs, hand-cut fries, mouth-watering milk shakes and more help complete their unique menu.
M Shack currently has 4 restaurants, with the newest one being in Nocatee that opened this summer. The new Nocatee location seats 75 indoors, with additional patio seating for 50. When you walk in you can grab a menu at the counter and decide what you would like to order. Once you decide you order right at the counter, grab a table number, and sit down and wait for your food to be brought to your table. They have a great variety of items on the menu to order. They have a full bar as well with beer on tap and “Adult”spiked milkshakes. Overall the restaurant has a very nice atmosphere.
Food that we reviewed:
Small sized Cookies and Creak Milkshake ($4.00) and Small sized Marshmallow Brûlée ($4.00). My daughter ordered the Cookies and Cream and my son ordered the Marshmallow Brûlée. Both of them raved about how they tasted, and I must agree. I tried both and honestly was hesitant to give them back! They tasted amazing! We even got to see the bartender torch the top of he Marshmallow Brûlée shake just like they do to Creme Brûlée. As you can see in the pictures, 2 thumbs ups for M Shack shakes!!
Build your own burger is priced starting at $4.25 for a single patty which I ordered. Options are a single patty, double patty, turkey, salmon, crab cake, veggie or marinated chicken. They have free toppings such as lettuce, tomato, raw onion, pickles, banana peppers and more. There are also additional toppings you can get for a small charge. I ordered my single patty with lettuce, tomato, raw onion, and Avocado which was an additional charge of 95 cents. Worth every penny since they did pile on the Avocado! I ordered my burger as medium well and it was cooked perfectly. The burger was nice and juice and tasted amazing.
Swamp Burger ($7.50) is a signature beef patty topped with pulled pork, house made BBQ sauce, pickles, swiss cheese and a ranch coleslaw. My husband was craving pulled pork so once he was this burger on the menu he knew it was for him. He ordered his medium and it came out cooked perfectly. He said the BBQ sauce paired with the ranch coleslaw gave it a delicious flavor. He can’t wait to order this burger again.
We ordered a side of Taco Fries ($6.50) to go with our burgers. These are friend with house made queso, sour cream, chili, bacon, scallions, fritos® and house-made pico. We have never had fries like this before, they were so good! Even my kids loved them. The size was perfect for sharing between my husband, myself and 2 kids. The chili was delicious and give you plenty of it!
Off the Tiny Tots menu my daughter ordered the Grilled Cheese ($3.25) which has classic and american cheese on potato bread. She said it was very tasty and gooey with cheese. It was a good size to0.
Off the Tiny Tots menu my son ordered the Hebrew National All-Beef Dog ($3.50) on toasted bun. My son is currently addicted to hot dogs and said this one was one of the best he has had. It was a good size and nice and juicy.
All of the items are A la carte, so they do not come with a side. They do have a variety of sides you can order including tator tots, onion rings, fries and more.
All of the food was delicious that we reviewed, and we definitely will be back. I am very happy that M Shack is here in the neighborhood and look forward to returning with my family to enjoy another meal and seeing some of my neighbors.
