Had a bad experience with the quality of the food. Seafood just didn’t taste fresh and the lobster bisque was particularly terrible. Lots of other much better places around

A bit sad to write this review as we have been loyal customers of the Cabby Shack for many years. The food is always consistent. The upper deck is what sets this establishment apart. Inside is noisy, good for families. The past two times we...More

Great location, fun atmosphere, great drinks - food is just OK...out of four meals, only one was really good. The other three were just OK, not memorable. Lobster tacos were very good, pizza was very mediocre, lobster roll was skimpy, and scallops were just OK.

"The CabbyShack, on historic Plymouth harbor, is the spot for gorgeous views, tons of seats under the sun, live music all season long, and seafood so fresh it practically jumps straight from the ocean to the kitchen. The basic boiled lobster weighs in at about a pound and a quarter. But those in the know ask for the super-sized three-and-a-half pound Big Man's Lobster. Equally eye-popping is the 'Big Shack' Roll. It's the biggest lobster roll in town, overflowing from a grilled buttered roll. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, the CabbyShack sells thousands of them a week. It's the perfect summer meal, for the perfect summer day. The CabbyShack's menu is loaded with fun summer foods like hand battered onion rings, colossal shrimp cocktail, golden fried clams, and -- believe it or not -- some of the best bar pizzas on the South Shore. But the dish they're most famous for is their award winning clam chowder, served in a fresh baked bread bowl. Rich chowder, big lobster rolls, and fun all summer long, keeps everybody coming back, to the CabbyShack." - Phantom Gourmet
