Description: "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

“Decent, but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

We were referred to Cabby Shack for lunch by the cashier at the Pilgrim Hall Museum. My husband enjoyed his chowder, and our burgers were perfectly fine. Service was a little slow, and we had to wait to be seated, on a quiet weekday, because the staff clearly didn't want to open another section of the restaurant. Also, there are no refills on drinks, which is a little annoying.

“Great Pizza!!! Worth the wait!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

The chowder is very good per my husband, I don't like chowder. I love the baked haddock. I just wish there were free refills on ice tea and soda. The bill can be very pricey if you want more than one soft drink. but the water is free. We live in plymouth and patronize the restaurant frequently. The Plymouth bay view is nice with an outside patio, love the summer.

“Overpriced and Mediocre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

You are paying for atmosphere and location, keep this in mind and you might have a good time. Cabby Shack can be a fun place to go in the summer to get a drink but that should be where the line is drawn. Unfortunately their food gets a bit worse with every visit. The prices are insane which really makes me not want to go back again. Truly disappointing and a waste of an amazing location.

“Clam Chowder in a bread bowl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

They have the best clam chowder that they serve in a bread bowl. We love to go here for lunch on Fridays to get that clam chowder. The service and the atmosphere is great here.
