The food was just OK. We were seated outside and there was a loud table of about 12 near us. Very distracting.

Not sure why there are so many good reviews. Prices are way higher then what is posted on their website. $14.95 for a large fish and chips and they weren't all even in size.

The Sea Shanty was welcoming and comfortable, the outdoor patio is dog friendly if you have... More

Casual and fun atmosphere with phenomenal breakfast and greatest muffins! Colorful baseball hats hang from the ceiling giving you fun reading while you wait for your food. Great staff and service.

I have eaten here at least a handful of times over the years. The food is always good. My favorite thing to get here is the fish and chips. The staff is the best part of this place and the fact that it is only a walk away from the ocean.

The food was great and the staff friendly and helpful. Located right in front of our hotel. I took the burger and it was delicious. My mom ate a steak that she liked a lot too.
