Fantastic food! Service was great.
Sat in outdoor seating, the staff was very nice and efficient. Good was pretty good, steak was well done and ordered medium but didn't want to bother staff with everything going on. Could have used some music outdoors to drown out the hustle and bustle of the lot
We did dinner outdoor and I was impressed with their adherence to COVID precautions. Tables were under tent and well spaced. Food and service were typically excellent.
First time back with new rules, same great food. Went for lunch, and though a sparse late lunch crowd staff was ready and attentive. Food was great as always.
Great to be back here - staff and management very aware of all regulations.
With the new social distancing they are really doing things right. They have been doing a lot of take out so nothing awkward-everyone well trained. Almost full menu, a few delays with a lot of competing take out orders.
Great meal and felt very safe.
Had a great Father’s Day Dinner. Staff did a great job with our new normal!!!
Really enjoyed the outdoor seating. Set up well for social distancing. Food and service was very good.
summer shack has always been one of my favorite restaurants and I’m so glad that they have opened back up. The outdoor seating was awesome! Right in the parking lot with pretty lights and soft music playing. Felt safe the entire time. will definitely be dining again :)
Food was fresh and amazing. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. Will absolutely be going back soon
Currently outdoor seating only was great! Good just a delicious as ever including the new sushi options!
clam chowder: very watery
"Shack Style" Seafood Paella: mussels, lobster and clams are all bad(not fresh, all dead and have to spit out)
ToKo salad: taste like regular marinated baby octopus that u get from Costco.
Tower of power: cevichi is the part I gave it 5 star. Very refreshing and robust flavor. Oysters are really fresh, but the littleneck is a little bit off.
Everything was exceptional. Had the paella and was the best I’ve ever had.
The waiter promptly attended our table. The dinner was delicious! We always enjoy out time at the Shack! A favorite when we are in town!
The bartender was also the raw bar attendant. The fish was not properly prepares and we sent it back. The portion for calamari plate was sub par and overpriced. We will NEVER waste our valuable time to go back to this location.
Over all just ok. I was expecting better service . Food was fresh but could have been prepared to better degree
Disappointing- didn’t meet expectations- Calamari greasy, tacos bland , desserts over sweet and low quality ice cream . Won’t be back .
We were there for Dine Out Boston and their selections were all tempting. Everything was delicious.
Food was delicious, as always. Fish so fresh and ample portions. Nice menu options--hard to choose! We did miss the free cornbread, which we were told is now a charged item. Also, for the 2nd visit in a row, I was disappointed to hear the South Bay Blonde oysters were unavailable. We will definitely return soon, though!
Best clams ever! The food was awesome and the service was fantastic. Highly recommend.
Seafood that we ordered were not fresh and overcooked.
Good was excellent. They ran out of crab claws and substituted one shrimp in our Tower of Power. The waitress noticed that the substitution was not fair so she asked the manager to give us a discount. She also brought he is extra shrimps. Very nice of her.
I love the ambiance at this place. The server was nice and helpful and The food was Very fresh and delicious. I would definitely go back again.
I enjoyed enough.
No corn bread? Clam chowder was extremely salty with very few claim....shrimp liguingi seemed to have a hot sausage added and portion of swordfish was small and partially cook on one piece
Always a great option for meeting family and friends. Great food and wonderful service.
Love the food & staff esp our server Jeffery. Keep up the great work guys, will be back soon
Great food and great service. Highly recommend for seafood lovers!
Business Dinner: we were a group of 24 people and the service and food were great. Thank you
We were there late, but everyone was friendly and cheerful after 10 pm. Soup was hot and good. Lobster roll and the salmon was cooked perfect. Looking forward to next time to try the whole lobster.
We went there for my daughter’s birthday. Everything was great! Had a nice table, wonderful waiter, and the food was excellent! Prices very reasonable. We will definitely be back!
Great for groups and great for families with young children.
The seafood paella was fabulous and the oysters were great as always
This is not a favorite of mine. It's styled as an 'in the rough' type seafood restaurant but with high end prices. We found the service slow, after waiting a long time with nothing but bread, the appetizer salads came with the meal. We ordered the special, very expensive, pan fried lobster which came in the shell. Dripping with excessive amounts of sauce, it was a mess to eat. We were given one napkin each and no towelettes until we asked. No picks were available and I was unable to access a large part of the lobster meat. The space is caverns and loud and simply doesn't gel with the high prices and poor service.
