If you are looking for the freshest in seafood this is the place. I saw the guy in the window cutting the fish they were cooking that night. When was it swimming that morning. The fried food was perfect. Service was freindly and fun. Bring the hole family. This is the place.

Pros: good parking, Inexpensive, casual

This place is without question a top notch establishment! I have been to Summer Shack dozens of times and have only had great meals and fine service. Definitely worth the $$$ and the time!

This place is way overpriced for what it is. Jasper should be ashamed to have his name attached to this product.

Pros: Are you kidding?

Cons: Poor Service, Overpriced

The ambience is fun. The bay cannot be viewed from the restaurant but old New Orleans is there. Food and selection is excellent. Restaurant is casual and many familys were seen having a good time. Prices are highter than moderate but worth it.

The place is extremely overrated. Our shrimp cocktail was overcooked, mussels low in flavor, and drinks late.

And, the kicker was that after our 25-guest bill came to the table at $1,000, the manager had the fortitude to retrieve our bill to add a (their mistake) missing $20 item, embarassing our host. Take the hit for the customer's sake...

Go elsewhere for this kind of food, like Woodman's in Essex, MA. Worth the drive and wait. Summer Shack would be much better is it wasn't a factory, churning guests in and out.
