Baked stuffed lobster with no lobster!

After reading a lot about Jasper White’s Summer Shack and getting e-mails I felt that it was time for us to take a drive to Cambridge. We entered a huge restaurant which had abundant parking. There was no wait, Everything is listed on a very large chalk board in the dining area. We had crab legs and a few other a la carte items for appetizers. It was a great atmosphere.

Baked Stuffed Lobster

It was loaded with a lot of butter and crackers, too much for me. I felt sick eating it and was very disappointed! I had more fun eating the crab legs and some sort of raw oyster cocktail that I got. My appetizers were better than my main course. I forgot what my date ordered but he agreed that my lobster was gross. We were looking forward to going to the Summer Shack but were disappointed that we went after we ate. We both agreed that we should have stayed home.

Our server

Our server, Mike, was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu items and he was very helpful with recommendations. He was prompt, friendly, and served with a smile.

Yay! The ladies

Yay! The ladies room re-do is much appreciated! I am looking forward to seeing the new bar. More small bites on the menu would be great, and Joe is right to add some seafood pasta or risotto dishes. That would be excellent!
