Hours of Operation



DINE OUTSIDE! At Summer Shack Cambridge, we have built a large extended patio section in the front of our venue. During this time, we are doing everything to ensure our guests feel safe. Not comfortable eating inside? Ask to have a seat on the patio! 

*Please Note* You cannot make a reservation for our patio tables, as patio seating is available on a first come first serve basis. We try to accommodate as many guests as possible with the outside seating preference.

BREAKING NEWS! Summer Shack Cambridge is now offering a special SUSHI menu. As always, our dedicated to serving the freshest seafood year-round remains our top priority, and we're excited to share this new venture with you. We might be bias, but our favorite is the "Summer Shack Roll" - try one today for takeout or dine-in!
