From My Menu

Chef Jody Adams reviews Pan roasted lobster at Summer Shack
$$ | Seafood
Fresh Pond
"A perfect, simple lobster with my favorite herb, chervil, and lots of butter. I love the simplicity of this."
Chef Dana Love reviews Crispy fried Ipswich whole belly clams at Summer Shack
$$ | Seafood
Fresh Pond
"This simple dish is difficult to find done right, but chef Jasper White, known for his seafood specialties, uses only the freshest local clams from nearby Ipswich."
Chef Cassie Piuma reviews Grilled littleneck clams with garlic butter at Summer Shack
$$ | Seafood
Fresh Pond
"I grew up on the South Shore, and the Summer Shack reminds me of my childhood. Everything there is delicious and fresh, but the sweet grilled clams doused in garlic butter are ridiculous. Chew the clam first, then slurp the butter out of the shell."
