  • The bare-bones, rustic feel may not play well with the island's hoity-toity crowd, but that's reason enough to set out for this Nantucket shack. Let them back you a picnic,
  • This was probably the best lobster I've had in my life. Beautiful, delicious lobster, great calamari, great beer. Somewhat casual. Definitely come here if you're in the mood for lobster.
  • Ask for Tara- makes the best mudslides on the island.
  • Get the elbow bender, if you don't, youre making a mistake...
  • Buck-a-shuck on the patio on Tuesdays from 5:30-7:30!
  • The archetypal shack. Buck-a-shuck at the raw bar can be deadly...set a limit and stick to it. Service is hit or miss but the lobsters are the islands best. Wash it all down with an Elbow Bender.
  • Get the 1.5 lb of baked lobster and enjoy fresh succulent lobster meat paired with a glass of Chardonnay. We also got the clam chowder which was one of the best chowder I've ever had.
  • Just drink here
  • Sometimes, while on this island of fancy food, you just want to put on a plastic bib and break a lobster open with your bare hands. This is your spot.
  • Liked draught beer they recommended and the choice of red wine ; shrimp cocktail served with ginger n salsa sauce (but was chilled ;)great fried clamps ,the traditional lobster roll is must have
  • Great staff, drinks and food. Have a bender or two, play rings and enjoy.
  • Shauna and bender are two peas in a pod
  • bad service. No alcohol in the overpriced drinks
