This review is based on my last two visits..I have been here several times - the Saltamboca is amazing. However, the service is OK. I have had the same server the last two visits, and both times, he seemed totally uninterested in my table and our experience. We were done with our meal (both times) and sat around fot 15 minutes waiting for him to come back. I usually don't like to diss places I enjoy, but I was extremely disappointed this last visit. I took my family hoping to show them a nice time, but they left feeling unwelcomed and dissatisfied with the service. BUT, they loved the food.
Food is good. Had the waffle cheese steak sandwich. Loved it. Wife loved her waffle salad. Kids liked the burgers, pizza, and Mac N cheese. Dessert was amazing. Had the chocolate mess. Cake, chocolate, fruit, and ice cream. One order was enough for the table.Pricy for what you get. I thought it would have been reasonable if every thing was $3-$5 less. Kids meals were $9, my sandwich $16.Service was subpar. Waiter inattentive and slow.
Given that they've got the view I expected the food to be really sub-par, and the drinks overpriced. It is pricey, but man that was one of the best -- and biggest -- dirty vodka martinis I've ever had. And the apps we got were really good. Mussels in white wine sauce with delicious warm bread for dipping. Go in the afternoon when it's easier to score a window-side table, and then it's worth it.
I only had the oysters and wine so my review is limited but what I had was great. The oysters were exceptionally fresh and expertly shucked, hardly a shell shard in them. The wine list was surprising for the location, there were a lot of excellent white seafood friendly wines to choose from. My oyster experience was better than Legal and almost as good as B&G.
We absolutely love The Shack!! The bartender is great and once he sees us walk in the door, he makes sure there are 2 seats at the bar and has our drinks waiting there for us before we even sit down. Can't get any better service than that! If you haven't been there, it's definitely worth it!!
We had mussels for apps which were good. My bf had the fish special of the day, but was not too impressed. I had the Clambake, deterring from my favorite dish, Shack Bouillabaisse. The Clambake did not have the flavoring of the Bouillabaisse. Slight d
If you are in Boston, Cheers is a great place to stop for a meal. It is always a winner for taking visitors from out of town with it being on the list of tourist attractions and close to the Freedom Trail.
I would highly recommend the Taj. We've had an enjoyable stay thanks to the friendly staff. The food is delish. Plus it is a great venue for a business meeting. Very impressed. Thanks!
We had the lobster roll and Chick Lobster. Loved them and checking out the lobster tank. I know it sounds simple but this is the best macaroni and cheese I have ever had.
Hands down the best service I’ve had. First time we went to Summer Shack, definitely coming back. Loved the food but we had even greater service. Thanks Pete!
