“Great fish dishes - - especially lobster and raw oysters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

They have great 'raw oysters' on the half-shell with a great presentation. I had a fish chowder which was fantastic. All of their food is great. I try to go there every time I visit Boston. If you take the Boston Trolley ride - - it stops across the street in front of the Sheraton Hotel/

“Casual and good!”

We were in the area and a local recommended this casual place for our family for dinner. They had a great lobster special and the rest of our food was good. Fun, comfortable atmosphere for us!

“Good Seafood shack”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

I would rate this as only good, not very good because the chowder was nothing special and the fried clams were very small. Lobster pot stickers were very good. Lobster rolls were good.

“Amazing Food Aming Chef!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I was at the Summer Shack 23rd. We had a large group. We were promptly seated. Wonderful atmosphere! Our Waiter was amazing and attentive! I had my three children with me along with extended family, my children do not eat seafood, the Chef came out to the table to see how he would be able to accommodate my 11 year old daughter! And that was done with and amazing steak salad! I would recommend this place for anyone weather in a big group or a couple or bringing children this place has something amazing for everyone!!!!
