Went for lunch and drinks. We sat at the inside bar because there was a wait for anything outside. Good drink menu and probably 25 beers on tap. We ordered a cup of Clam Chowdah, crab cakes, and coconut shrimp. The crab cakes were bigger...More

After a tourist-y day, my bride and I decided on The Cabby Shack ... little did we know it had Food Network's Best Chowder Award ... they weren't kidding. The fish and chips and fish tacos were really good as well. Treat yourself!

The clam chowder was really good, the kids meals were good and on a nice day sitting outside would be awesome I'm sure.

Was not impressed at all. Had lobster bisque, no meat in it at all, turned thin & watery as it cooled down. Others had chowder, that to was very bland. Just a tourist trap selling below par food. Will not bother, much better places just...More

We went here after going whale watching as we wanted to warm up and were told the Clam Chowder was the best. Not having had Clam Chowder before, I didnt know what to expect. It was delicious as was the rest of our meal.

The fish and chips were very good and the staff was excellent. They gave us a lot of local knowledge that had nothing to do with the restaurant. We sat on the top floor on a beautiful sunny day and the view was outstanding. If...More

"The CabbyShack, on historic Plymouth harbor, is the spot for gorgeous views, tons of seats under the sun, live music all season long, and seafood so fresh it practically jumps straight from the ocean to the kitchen. The basic boiled lobster weighs in at about a pound and a quarter. But those in the know ask for the super-sized three-and-a-half pound Big Man's Lobster. Equally eye-popping is the 'Big Shack' Roll. It's the biggest lobster roll in town, overflowing from a grilled buttered roll. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, the CabbyShack sells thousands of them a week. It's the perfect summer meal, for the perfect summer day. The CabbyShack's menu is loaded with fun summer foods like hand battered onion rings, colossal shrimp cocktail, golden fried clams, and -- believe it or not -- some of the best bar pizzas on the South Shore. But the dish they're most famous for is their award winning clam chowder, served in a fresh baked bread bowl. Rich chowder, big lobster rolls, and fun all summer long, keeps everybody coming back, to the CabbyShack." - Phantom Gourmet
