Seafood Shacks Worth the Drive

Summer is coming, and we’re already dreaming of lazy beach vacations and lining up for fresh seafood at little waterfront shacks. Read on to find 10 shacks worth the drive—smallish joints with no-nonsense decor, an unfussy vibe and fresh-as-it gets seafood. Slip on your flip-flops for walk-up counter service and incredible meals at picnic tables with a view. We’re taking you on a sun-kissed tasting tour of lobster rolls on a Cape Cod beach, crispy halibut and chips in Vancouver, and beyond.
