This is our flagship location, our inspiration, our heart and soul. Seating 350 diners, this Summer Shack has become a favored place for all kinds of celebrations from kids' birthday parties and sports victories, to corporate holiday parties. We can accommodate groups from 10 to 100 or more. Check out our patented Lobster Line, which allows us to prepare our lobsters and clambakes perfectly for 1 or 100. With a fun and casual atmosphere, this shack is like a big party every night.

Beyond serving great food, prepared under the watchful eye of Chef Tim Willis, the Shack is a family of people who love working together. Our Hostesses will greet you at the door and our experienced servers will assure a great time. Look for Jasper at the 1200 gallon Lobster Tank and don't miss our star shuckers at the raw bar.
