Jasper's Famous Pan Roasted Lobster
bourbon, chervil & chives
Classic New England Clam Chowder
Good meal with reasonable price.
Not bad. Expensive for what you get. The clam chowder was alright but nothing special (Boston Sail Loft has outstanding chowder). Oysters are $1 on Tuesdays.
Service was good. Food was great. CO2 levels were very low so we felt safe eating with our child who is too young to be vaccinated for COVID-19
Clam chowder, Lobster and clam were excellent
Very very slow service and waitstaff was not very knowledgeable about menu items
Price was fair although dishes were missing what menu said. My husband asked for brocolini instead of asparagus but still got asparagus. My dish was suppossed to have potatoes but didn’t. Between parking cost and the overall quality I’d give it a pass. If I were to spend 56 on crab legs again, I’d definitely pick a real seafood place.
Love Summer Shack! First time we been there in years, but the food was dead on great. Yes, I think it may have been the best lobster roll I've had, due to the tenderness of the lobster. Sorry guys (they were in the tank behind us). Cornbread and slaw surprisingly really good, crabmeat solid. Oysters great, wish they had Island Creeks though. Great service - not cheap but good value for freshness and well done simplicity!
This meal was better than the one we had the night before at Select Oyster Bar in the Back Bay.....
Loved the pan-roasted lobster and the lobster MacnCheese. The calamari appetizer was a bit chewy.
Lobster prices have gotten ridiculous need to correct or the restaurant is going to fail
Delicious lobster roll and fish and chips. Attentive server and a fun ambience. We will definitely go again!
The food was good but the service was only ok. The server brought the wrong food to our table then took it to the next table
Excellent food and service. My sister had a great birthday. Thank yiu’
Classic New England Seafood. Prepared well. Substantial portions. Great experience.
Enjoyed the seafood!
My girlfriend and I went here for the “Dine Boston” promotion. Overall we were not pleased. The service, although polite, was extremely slow. The food was cold and didn’t taste very good. Even with the promotion price, I think we over paid for what we received.
I don’t think we will be returning
Space is nicely decorated-a little loud. Food was good, but nothing extraordinary. A little pricey.
Great food as usual here. Server was a delight. Make reservations!
No waitstaff!!! For those prices and no waitstaff OR Hostess
Service was friendly and attentive, food was amazing
Ate at Cambridge for lunch the day before. Crab cake and side salad are just average...disappointing. I understand prices are higher due to the pandemic..industry is struggling, but Summer Shack COULD be great! Better value and really make local seafood shine but you have to know what to order. Ate at Back Bay last night 8/12. Service was courteous but a bit slow. Ketchup was brought; brand new bottle but the seal had not been removed so we had to do it. Win e is WAY overpriced and I am used to paying decent money for wine at home and in restaurants etc. Food was good and portions generous, but I'd prefer REALLY good and smaller portion size. Requests were accommodated and thats nice. My friend's fried fish was batter laden, like light and crisp making the fish oily. The batter did not stay on the calamari so something is off in the frying department. We did not do Dine Out Boston. It would be nice if they offered more fish specials, octopus and fresh. vegetable options. Legal is not GREAT either and it's getting harder to find really good fish restaurants that have raw bar options and are really good..just simple..,
Great time at Summer Shack before the Red Sox game!
Food was delicious as always!
Love the lobster roll...had a few issues with our order. Had to ask to get credited for the meal that arrived 30 minutes after everyone else.
We had oysters, shrimp cocktail, mussels and a crab cake. Everything was delicious and the food came out very quickly. My martini was perfect and we enjoyed the draft list.
We had a great time at the Summer Shack. I was a little worried because it’s located at the bottom of a parking garage but inside the decor was fine and the food was fantastic. I had the lobster roll which was fresh and delicious. My spouse had the haddock which was cooked perfectly and not greasy at all. My son had the lobster Mac and cheese which was also not greasy and very smooth with a good size portion of lobster. Our waitress was attentive and quick. We felt the prices were good too.
Good food and wine. Lobster roll a little soggy from too much butter. Lobster potstickers good.
Food is just ok for the value. Service was good, just not in tune with a problem with the meal.
The hostess, and waiters were very courteous, knowledgeable, and provided great service. The food was excellent! We will definitely be back the next time we are in Boston!
A little loud for my taste. Service was good. Food was standard fare seafood. They go heavy on the salt as most restaurants do. Son had haddock, but it was overdone and cooked in heavy butter. My scallops and shrimp were overdone as well, but still somewhat tasty.
Service was slow and mediocre. Food was good quality but nothing overly exciting for the price. Restaurant had fun decor but was very dark inside for a beach type, seafood restaurant atmosphere.
Best lobster roll, and Lobster Mac! Highly recommend for anyone visiting Boston!
Local favorite we tried. The seafood was ok but not what we are used to with regard to shrimp and lobster.
So disappointed that we chose this restaurant for our last night in Boston. It started with a reservation yet the manager sat us at a random table with a used water glass with lipstick on it. Everything was below average - the food and service. The crab cake was overcooked and all filler, the fried fish was oil soaked yet raw in the middle, and the best part was the dry subpar coleslaw.
Lobster roll. Amazing
Excellent service!! We arrived late as our family’s plane was delayed. The accommodated is without hesitation and we closed the place!!! Delicious food!!!
Julia our server was great! She had a great demeanor. Food was good
I love Summer Shack. It's casual, it's fun but they don't blast the music, and the food is consistently great. The passionfruit martini is highly recommended.
Great seafood place. Fantastic staff. Worth it.
Best lobster in Boston imo. Great fish as well. Get the key lime pie if its available.
Outstanding food. Don’t let the lax atmosphere fool you. They have some serious oysters and lobster. If your a traveler, on vacation or visiting Fenway, worth stopping by and eating here.
