Why the name Shaka?

“Shaka is a hand gesture in which the thumb and little finger are extended outward from a clenched fist,” the reps explained. “It is used as a greeting or to express approval, solidarity and more. In the 1960s, surfers adopted the Shaka sign from Hawaiians, and it spread around the world. It is part of the surf culture.

“If you know Reynolds, you know he is a man of few words and an avid surfer. The Shaka represents the positive, laid-back vibe he expels,” they added.

Shaka Shack was designed to provide delicious local fare that hungry surfers can afford. The recipes are family recipes and have proven themselves. Shaka Shack is a take-out restaurant, but customers are welcome to dine outside at Shaka Shack’s picnic tables, which are set on sandy beach-like terrain. Customers can take a selfie next to one of the custom-made decorative surfboards. Customers can even play a game of cornhole while dining or sipping their favorite smoothie.

For those with a large group of surfers or groms coming in to eat, Shaka Shack can whip up large amounts of food for a party. Shaka Shack’s party menu consists of larger quantities of items, and some items are not on the regular menu.

Most of the recipes used by Reynolds were passed down from his grandparents. His maternal grandparents, Margaret and Sanford Justice, opened the Pitchcroft Restaurant on Smith’s Island, Ewell, Md. in the early 1970s. Shaka Shack’s menu includes East Coast recipes from his grandparents’ restaurant , including Smith’s Island cake.

Reynolds’ paternal grandparents, of Laurel, Del., were also “excellent cooks” and their recipes have also been passed down. Reynolds sticks to traditional East Coast cuisine, including all major seafood staples, such as crabcakes, soft-shell crabs, shrimp and fish, but also brings its own modern twist. to many dishes, such as its fish and shrimp tacos and various wraps.

Smith Island’s cakes are all made on site from the same recipe used by Reynolds’ grandmother. It is eight and nine thin layers of cake between layers of frosting – traditionally, a yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Smith’s Island Cake is the official state dessert of Maryland. Smith Island cake dates back to the 1800s. Island women would send the multi-layered cake along with boatman husbands for their fall oyster harvest. The origins of the cake are debated. Shaka Shack offers many other flavors of cakes and frostings, by the slice or whole cake.

Shaka Shack offers several Smith Island cakes to take out, but also does custom orders with advance notice, as well as cake balls. Homemade candies are offered for the holidays, and customers have the option of ordering many seasonal candies throughout the year.

Shaka Shack offers daily specials, which they post on their Facebook page, or people can call them as well. Orders can also be placed online with the Clover app or Door Dash delivery.
