great purchase July 5 2006
By Justine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Was really suspicious, because this book covers some of the big touristy places (Woodman's, in Essex, for instance) but was pleasantly surprised. We spend 2 weeks on the Cape every year, and this book has some suggestions that we didn't know about, along with coverage of some of our favorite places. Lots of seafood trivia, too -- was expecting a straightforward guidebook but it's really more of a coffee table book. All in all, a really good purchase.

For Real Seafood Fans. July 5 2006
By BigEater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My wife and I are big fans of the Stern's books (eg Roadfood) and this book belongs with them. Fun to read, it's written for real foodlovers, who don't mind getting their hands dirty. The author hits on a few completely out of the way places that we've been going to for years but don't see much traffic. Only wish the book covered more restaurants in NH.

Fun book, great coverage July 10 2006
By Ms.MichiganNurse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We're originally from the Boston area, and this book took me back to my childhood summers at the beach. I ordered this b/c the family's having a reunion in Maine this summer -- we will definitely be trying some of these places! I really like that the author flags up tourist traps vs. hidden gems, and the book is written in a fun style. Lots of great photos too.

New England's Favorite Seafood Shacks: Eating Up the Coast ... Feb. 20 2007
By Philip L. Mendes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An outstanding seafood reference manual which I highy recommend! I am a Boston transplant to Ohio who re-visits the Boston/New England areas 4 to 5 times each year ... my favorite food is seafood and this book is my seafood "bible!" I have yet to visit a "shack" previewed in this book where the food has been anything but excellent! The book is all encompassing, addressing everything from restaurant descriptions, menus, locations, operating hours, etc. GOOD JOB ELIZABETH!!!

You have a winning reference indeed. Nov. 6 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you like seafood and are heading for the East Coast, don't leave home without a copy of New England's Favorite Seafood Shacks in hand: it reviews the best-loved eateries along the coast, offering over seventy profiles on seafood shacks and specialties of the house. Some are as brief as a few sentences, while others command a page or two of historical reference and description. Add in black and white photos and notes on hours, address, web sites and specialties and you have a winning reference indeed.
