Service was great ! Best lobster roll I’ve had in MA
Waiter was awesome
Best tuna plate ever!!!!
The food was favored and the service was great.
We loved our meal here while visiting. Thanks for the crab prepared exactly how my son likes it!
My son wanted lobster for dinner and this was a perfect place for everyone to get the seafood/fish of their choosing. I had the salmon—it was fresh and delicious. My son had the stuffed lobster and loved it. It was the first time I ate indoors since COVID started and I felt very comfortable there—tables spread very far apart, servers masked and gloved. We look forward to eating there again!
Great quality fresh seafood done right. Oysters were delicious!
Awesome last meal with our daughter sending her to BU❤️loved the food and music. Service was great!
the dennis oysters were legit the best i ever had. waiter brought a special oyster with seaweed, tobiko, diced cucs and sliced tuna and it was delicious! will definitely be coming back here. drinks were on the expensive side but they’re located in an expensive area of boston, so i still found it a great value.
It was ok but have had better seafood elsewhere. I was full but as for taste nothing special.
Food was delicious. 2 adults and 2 preteens. Everyone loved dishes.
This was our first time to the Summer Shack. The staff were courteous and friendly, the place was clean and the food was delicious! We will definitely go back.
We have been here many times, and have enjoyed ourselves. This is a tricky, confusing time for restaurants. The food was good, but not as inspired as we have had at other times. Things should get better in future, as the economy reopens, and we look forward to returning as the pandemic passes.
Good time and good food
Excellent seafood and great service make this a great spot if you want some New England seafood while visiting Boston. My husband had their "Best in Boston" Lobster roll chock full of white meat lobster and claw meat mixed with a little mayo and celery on a toasted brioche roll. I had the scallop and shrimp skewers on sauteed summer veggies. They were cooked perfectly, not too well done or too underdone. Tender and lightly seasoned. I will say I was not fond of the veggies...too much spinach. I would suggest rice pilaf or a risotto. The buffalo chicken wings were awesome. Drinks cold, beer cold and Victor our server was sooooo nice. The music was 90's with some Skynard, Hall and Oates and other favs. You will love this place. It was very clean...give it a try!
Food was great. Not crowded and our server was friendly and attentive
During this time of COVID-19, Summer Shack has done an excellent job. Tables are very far apart, servers are gloved and masked. This makes for a more subdued atmosphere than they usually have but we're ok with that. The drinks and food were still excellent.
Only thing is less customers means less staff, so they were a little overwhelmed and there's a wait for food. But otherwise, service was great.
The Summer Shack is irreplaceable, and it has great food and great service. I have been regularly dining there for years and years, and it is always great.
Delicious and fresh seafood. Many options on the menu and great service!
Sunday July 26th. 6 p.m. . 95 degrees outside. It was fun to go to Summer shack and I'm glad to see them open again. There weren't many other customers in the restaurant however everything was just as good as always. We sat up in the front in the bar area at a table along the wall. Plenty of space and "real estate" on the table to fit a lot of plates. We ended up making a meal on oysters and appetizers. We have barbecue shrimp kabobs that were really good as well. The music was a lot of fun and not too loud. They have such a diverse menu there's really something for everyone here. If you haven't tried it you really have to. Really good quality seafood for short money. If you have tried it get back there. Let's help them and other restaurants get back on their feet. It's our DUTY as hungry bostonians!
Good food, fun atmosphere, service was a little slow.
Food was great! Service was even better. Our waitress was fantastic. It was not crowded!! Support this business. We need them around!! We will definitive back.
Very good seafood with a great vibe makes it feel like your in a beach hut not Boston
I loved it the food was great the service was great the place was clean and the music was great
Great service great food and good location
Have been several times before but food far inferior this time.
Worst was the fish & chips - the breading was so hard you could beat it
with a knife & it didn't move. Literally cut it open & peeled it back to get
to the fish. Other dishes (oysters, chowder, lobster roll...ok but that's about it).
Great place to eat seafood . Stuffed lobster and crab legs are delicious . Definitely recommend
The food was excellent. Our waitress was courteous and safe. Restaurant looked spotless and was quiet.
Great night out food was excellent and service was great.
Super good food and affordable for seafood
Great place to eat and family friendly. Would recommend
Family meal while traveling. Great lobster and crab legs.
Summer shack was good. The food was good. Ordered from the Restaurant week menu. To start, ordered the R.I. style calamari. Very good. For an entrée, ordered the fish and chips. Too much batter on the fish and fries were a bit under cooked and soggy. For dessert, ordered the apple crisp. That was very good. Overall, not bad, but for a seafood place, I would have thought the fish and chips would have been better than it was.
Food was good, service was disappointing.
We visit the Summer Shack every time we're in Boston. Excellent food and a true Boston experience.
It was an amazing dinner. Our server Riley was helpful, very knowledgeable of the menu. Great service!
The food at Summer Shack was absolutely to die for! Our waiter was super friendly and also let us know about specials. The decorations and ambiance were really cool and the place was not too crowded. I was disappointed in the small size of the portions considering how expensive my meal was.
J'ai étée manger du homard, c'était excellent, j'y retournerai
Great food at great prices- service was perfect - looking forward to going back!!!!
