    1. I've been to both. Was not at all impressed w/ Naked Fish and wouldn't go again. The decor/atmoshpere was pleasant though.

      I liked Summer Shack (I got a fish special - maybe Mahi Mahi, I forget). My husband was not thrilled (he got fried clams and said they were better at Kelly's). It was kind of pricey for lobster and the a-la-carte stuff, but my meal was reasonable for what I got. The atmosphere is not cozy. Big room w/ mostly long cafeteria style tables. We got a table for two that sits up a few steps and we were comfortable there.

      1. The food at Naked Fish is less than exciting and the decor is goofy - Disney does Cuba or something. I liked the atmosphere at Summer Shack, but the menu is uneven, with lots of mediocre choices at meteoric prices. Why not try the Barking Crab or Turner Fisheries?

          My friends and I went to Summer Shack and had a terrible time! Very expensive mediocre food, loud music, and screaming kids crawling all over the place. Never again! If you want a great dinner out, try Truc in the South End.
