The great seafood and specials we expect at Summer Shack, in a convenient location near shopping malls and highways. Nice fun seafood décor and piped in music as well. Hubbie loved his sardine special appetizer and bluefish and I my lobster risotto.
The delicious food, decor, and amazing staff! It was the perfect birthday!
Food is delicious! Bread and corn bread aren't great! Salmon salad was delicious! The pumpkin lobster bisque was one of my most favorite meals ever!
this is my second time my family and i have been at this restaurant it's a friendly place.
the service was outstanding, also the welcome
While SS will not knock your socks off, they are consistent with their food. Desserts however leave a lot to be desired. We ordered the chocolate silk pie to share and when served, it had clearly been around a while. The filling was shrinking and separating from the crust. The bottom crust was literally the texture of cardboard. You needed a knife to cut through it.
For the price, you barely get your money's worth.
Shrimp and scallops main course was very tasty, although not hot.
The food was good but not great. I expected better.
Went with 3 friends on Labor Day weekend (Sunday night). We all live in different towns, and Dedham is central, so it's great that Summer Shack takes reservations. The weekend bartender is so friendly and funny. When we had a friend running late, the hostess was really accommodating to us being seated 30 minutes later than our original reservation. Our server was fine. Seemed a little uneducated about the menu (didn't know if the Sea Bass was Chilean, Mediterranean or something else). Not a big deal though. Whatever it was, the sea bass was terrific!
Love it here especially since every time I go here I see Jasper coming out.
We had fried clams as an appetizer. At $16, we felt that the portion was either very small or the price too high. The few clams that were on the plate were excellent. Our fried scallops were tasty and perfectly prepared. The lobster roll was average at best, lacking any taste similarity to many lobster rolls we have enjoyed throughout New England. Finally, our server presented himself with a somewhat cocky attitude that certainly was not justified by his performance. His inattentiveness with our table showed in his inability to even refill water glasses for ten minutes after being requested to do so. Note - the dining area was, at most, maybe one third occupied. Maybe that should have been a clue for us.
