Living up to its nickname "the fruit of the sea," seafood pairs well with wine and is often chucked at bombing standup comedians. Harvest the ocean's bounty with today’s Groupon to The Fish Shack Restaurant in Rockport. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth or fresh seafood and lobster.
- For $25, you get $60 worth of fresh seafood and lobster for four or more.
Nestled near the shoreline that juts into the Atlantic’s waters at Cape Ann, The Fish Shack nets a menu of fresh seafood soups, baskets, entrees, and lobster, hauled in by their neighbor and parent company Roy Moore Lobster Co. Traditional chowders brace bellies for autumnal chills and baseball blues, with thick and creamy new england clam chowder or thin and milky haddock chowder stepping up to the plate ($4.95/cup). For more substantial hungers, enlist the aid of a fried-sole-fish sandwich with fries or coleslaw ($8.95) or a 7-ounce shrimp basket with fries ($11.95). To create a local favorite dish, chefs crumble a crunchy Ritz-cracker crust on top of fresh scallops before baking them and drizzling them with a provençal sauce, a motley infusion of garlic, butter, and capers ($17.95). With regular fresh catches, The Fish Shack prices its lobster daily, serving the crustacean boiled, casseroled, scampied, standardized tested, and rolled.
Because of its geographical snuggling with the sea, The Fish Shack occasionally closes during harsh weather, so the staff recommends calling ahead for reservations to ensure that they’re open and not victim to one of Poseidon's Monday moods.
