Bread is delicious. We usually go for oysters and they never dissapoint. Yes they are a bit expensive but most places are! I always get bloody mary's and they are consistently good. Service has never been an issue

The meals that I have had at the Summer Shack are wonderful ! Fish is fresh and cooked to perfection seasoned well. The wait staff are wonderful and work with you around GF and diet issues.

The Summer Shack is a fun, casual, restaurant. Specializing in New England Style Seafood. We offer 10 to 12 different types of oysters daily. Lobsters in varying sizes and styles including our signature clambake. Wonderful local grilled fish and crispy fried seafood. We do offer several non-seafood items as well. Steaks, burgers and award winning fried chicken. We are a children friendly restaurant and we can accommodate larger groups upon request.
