"I'm pretty fussy about food so don't take the 3 stars as a big knock.
We had a family get-together for my birthday, party of 5 Summer Shack is convenient, it's near the Red Line and places to park. It's a big place and pretty casual, so we're not talking about high levels of personal service,. That said, we were pretty well taken care of, seated quickly, the server explained the specials and was able to answer questions about the menu and handled the pace for the meal that we set. Overall vibe was friendly and courteous.
Food selections are pretty seafood heavy, but the two people in our party who are not big seafood fans were able to find non-fish options. The rest of us shared some Duxbury oysters which were fresh and quite good. My wife's grilled sardines were also quite good. I really wanted a lobster for my birthday and had the wood fire grilled lobster. This was the big disappointment, in that while the tail was pretty good, the claws were quite overcooked. I'll stick to steamed next time.
After the meal they brought out the birthday cake and candles my wife had snuck in (from a bakery) and sang. I though that was above and beyond and got them an extra service star. All in all a fun place.

"Fantastic seafood, lobster and everything else (calamari, cheeseburger, chicken, letc) was cooked to perfection. The sangria was fantastic and the desserts are always great. They have a lot of fresh pies and super ice creams from Richardsons. The Shack is always reliable, and Jasper White was actually visiting the tables. Nice touch!!"

"Stick to lobster or simple broiled fish at Summer Shack and you may be okay. It's in a convenient location and I always want to like it. But it could be much much better."

"Went for the Easter Bluegrass Brunch--food was cold, no atmosphere, too noisy to hear music and coffee and decaf served out of metal water pitchers--coffee tasted metallic."

"We'had small 1 lb lobster served with corn on a cob and grilled bass served with green beens. Both were good but a bit overpriced."

"We really enjoyed our lunch on Sunday at the Summer Shack. Every detail was carefully thought out, coordinated and executed with precision. Best pie crust ever and I'm an experienced baker. All food items were prepared using the best ingredients, no question! The servers could not have been nicer or more attentive! A++ to Chef Jasper White and his team members!! Everything we ate was scrumptious! Also, there was something for everyone, including vegetarian options . I normally do not write reviews however this Easter lunch was organized by a true professional and beyond amazing Chef!! If you do not try the Summer Shack, you are missing out on an amazing dining experience in Cambridge! Many thanks."

"Seafood was so great that we went back twice on our visit to Boston. Great raw oysters, everything really fresh. Ambiance is a bit warehouse like, but food more than makes up for it!!"
