The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

With an awning that reads “Clams & Chaos,” The Shack makes its entrance onto the Huntington eating scene. The place is a full-service, year-round spinoff of the original Centerport version of The Shack, which only offers outdoor seating and closes when the weather gets cool.

Owner Mace Colodny described it as a “Continental seafood restaurant” that’s “brutally casual” with a convenient location near both municipal parking and the AMC Shore 8 multiplex movie theater.

Co-chefs Phil Salerno and Rafael Reyes turn out such dishes as blackened shrimp quesadilla ($12), Long Island clam chowder ($4 cup; $8 bowl), a grilled swordfish sandwich ($13) and seafood fra diavolo ($16). A roster of burgers, from a simple hamburger to a turkey, veggie or chili burger with cheese, runs $8 a la carte; $12 with fries and a soft drink.

Colodny said that within a week, the place will offer craft beers on tap. There's also a modest selection of wines.

The Shack is at 46 Gerard St., Huntington, 631-923-2126.
