Sullivan's in South Boston May Open a Second Location in Hingham

An iconic snack shack in South Boston is looking to open a second location, with this one being along the water on the South Shore.

The Hingham Journal is reporting that Sullivan's at Castle Island is working with the town to open another location at the Hingham Bathing Beach, which is just off Route 3A near Monument Park. The article says that the eatery would take over the beach's concession stand and tentatively be open from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM daily from March to November, with the bathhouse being replaced by a new structure that would be between 2,000 and 2,400 square feet in size. If all goes as planned, the new location of Sullivan's could be opening sometime in 2016.

[March 29 update: The Boston Globe mentions that plans for Sullivan's to open in Hingham are still on, with the town's beach trustees allowing the owner of the eatery a 60-day extension for issues related to engineering (including utilities). The article says that the new location would have a similar feel to that of the original snack shack at Castle Island, including 2,400 square feet of space and new restrooms. If all goes well, the new Sullivan's could open next spring.]

Sullivan's, which first opened in Southie in 1951, is a seasonal spot by the water that our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) has featured as a place to go for hot dogs, hamburgers, lobster rolls, ice cream, and more. The review can be found at the link below:
