Yum!! We have been here many times and will be back again soon. We love this place.
The server was really awesome and the food was as my kid says Yummy!! I will c be coming back here for another great time with friends and good food.
Superb service wonderful food and a very splendid experience. The roasted Lobster was amazing.
We absolutely love The Shack!! The bartender is great and once he sees us walk in the door, he makes sure there are 2 seats at the bar and has our drinks waiting there for us before we even sit down. Can't get any better service than that! If you haven't been there, it's definitely worth it!!
Excellent bartender. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was awesome really had a good time thank you for your great service.
The Summer Shack is awesome. Vinnie the bartender is great and knows what we want from the minute we sit down... we never have to ask for another beer, he just knows. The beer battered fish and chips is one of the best things on the menu and the French fries are some of the best I've ever had.
"Went here twice - once for dinner with a bunch of friends and second time for lunch with my wife.
Both times food was very good and service was pretty fast. The place is not cheap (but what good seafood is?) but otherwise its great.
Will take Summer Shack over Legal Seafood any day."
I took a date to the bar at the Cambridge summer shack, the bartender Maureen and she was very informative in explaining the oysters which were great and shucked right next to us. We shared a couple of appetizers, fried clams, tomato and mozzarella salad and tuna special. All was great and so was the ICE COLD harpoon. I have been here before with my family but this was my first time to sit at the bar and I enjoyed it.
The raw bar is great and I especially like the condiments for the oysters, not just the usual gloppy ketchup and horseradish. My husband and I split a few appetizers (the daily specials are usually great) and some oysters and find it's plenty of food and the check is not bad at all. The wine list is exceptional for a place like this; the service is not.
Who can deny great seafood? No one. Summer Shack has some of the freshest seafood, directly from the fisherman in Boston. I had a 1-1/4 lb. Lobster for $20 last night, and it was phenomenal. Not only is the food great but so is the service. Awesome sports bar within the restaurant, with a projector and a pool table. They have five locations within greater Boston, so go to one near you!
