Shocked, shocked... decent fried clams at Summer Shack

StriperGuy | Apr 18, 2008 06:24 AM

Hit the Alewife Summer Shack for lunch yesterday.


Smallish-belly fried clam app. was perfectly executed.


- The banquette we were on was ripped and held together with duct tape which itself was falling apart. Kind of disgusting/appalling.

- Generous meat on lobster roll that was mostly flavorless. Not sure how that happens, but just did not taste like much. Roll was acceptable but untoasted.

- My two DCs had scrod and bluefish both of which were just okay

Overall experience confirms my earlier: not really worth it sentiment.
