Summer Shack -- Best Pies??

Are the pies there that spectacular??
The Summer Shack did a very good Mother's Day Gospel Brunch many years back. I was reminded of it by a current thread on southern food, and wished it were still around. The food was buffet and excellent.
Based on that experience, I think the kitchen could turn out a good pie if it wanted to. I would love to see a come-back from Jasper and company, but I have not had dessert there recently.
I have had both their strawberry-rhubarb pie and their blueberry pie. Both were excellent with soft-serve vanilla ice cream. I will have to say that the strawberry-rhubarb pie was the best I ever had.
