About

Guests 1 to 375

This is our original location, our flagship, the heart and soul of Summer Shack. Many of our employees have been here since we opened 15 years ago. With an extensive menu and dozens of specials each day, created under the watchful eye of Chef Tim Willis, be prepared to experience traditional, modern and ethnic variations of the freshest seafood in town. We also have great fried chicken, burgers, steaks and kid friendly dishes.

Our newly completed renovation features the largest oyster bar in Cambridge, as well as all new furniture and decor. We have also added a beautiful private function room that can accommodate up to 120 people. We excel at handling large events as well as the smaller, more intimate groups. We will work with you to customize your event to your specifications and create an unforgettable experience for you and your guests!

    Hands down, the best food ever. Hilary and her staff were eager to assist with our ideas and requests. Spectacle Island was transformed from a very public venue to an intimate setting for our wedding. The signature drinks were a hit and our families are still talking about their first tastes of lobster. We highly recommend the Summer Shack.

    Clambake on wheels was wonderful! I loved putting on the plastic lobster bib over my wedding dress, but more formal couples might want to consider this for a relaxed rehearsal dinner instead of the wedding.
    Everyone was super and the food was delicious! guests loved it.
