The Summer Shack is a Back Bay seafood restaurant with enough nautical kitsch on the wall to start your own marina. It has an entire section of the menu dedicated solely to lobster, and you should definitely start try the pan-fried version. It’s a great option for high-quality seafood in a fun and casual atmosphere, and it’s usually pretty easy to get a table.
