Service and food were both excellent. I had the fried clam platter the clams were delicious and plentiful. My wife had the lobster roll it was overflowing with lobster. Clam chowder was decent, very thick with lots of butter.

This restaurant, one of many in the area, had a nice selection of food with a wide range of prices. We had clam chowder, which was excellent, along with a large sized Lobster roll, which was pricey at about $36 but well worth it. We...More

Great place to visit in America’s home town. You can’t beat the pub pizza, clam chowder, or the waterfront view. Highly recommended!

The food here is good, the nightlife is over the top loud. You have to yell across the table to talk. Very young crowd, mostly locals.

Came across this place by chance. They were able to seat our larger group quickly. It was very noisy and the food was just okay.

Cabby Shack is a local favorite. Be prepared to pay a good amount for drinks and food. They do have deck and roof seating but they fill up quickly. Make sure to try the creamy chowder!

"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
