Inspired by the New England's coastal shacks, Jasper White's Summer Shack has been referred to as "a clam shack on steroids". The bustling, spacious restaurant, with locations in Cambridge, Back Bay, Hingham, Dedham and at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut, is a casual, roll-up-your-sleeves kind of place. The menu is laden with New England-sourced seafood with plenty of live lobsters, crab, raw bar, fried and grilled seafood, as well as family favorites like hot dogs, steak, fried chicken and other fun, delicious foods.

The bright, whimsical décor is funky and the music lively, but the food is serious - chef-owner and prolific cookbook writer Jasper White, a pioneer in Boston's once lackluster fine dining scene, hasn't relaxed his standards in the more relaxed environs at the Summer Shack. Exceptionally fresh seafood, procured by the restaurant's own licensed wholesale seafood company, is prepared simply and creatively. Service is friendly with a great selection of beers, wines and liquor.
