Pulled over for bite heading back to Falmouth as the place looked cute. Service was pleasant and quick unlike the reviews before mine. Lobster and clams were good and a reasonable price.

we got clam and lobster bake. um yeah. baked my eye- more like boiled. The lobster was about half the size we ordered and the shell so thin we broke it with our bare hands- no tools needed. Lobster was tough and the clams had never even been cleaned, beard intact and just plain nasty in flavour. The dipping stock... More

Ok... Let's start with the fact that I usually have very low expectations of roadside food shacks... This place could not even start to meet those very low expectation... The settings: It really lives to its name. It's a shanty. Smells moldy and the bathrooms look like the last time they've been cleaned was in the 60's. The Service: Slow.... More

My husband and I were on vacation with our daughter and her friend. My mom kept saying that while we were there we couldn't leave without getting a lobster roll. We didn't know which place to go but found this one on our way back from Provincetown. It was expensive but we so enjoyed the lobster roll! We would deff... More

I can not rate the food as we left after an hour of waiting for our food!!! We arrived at the Shanty and walked through the restaurant to be seated outside. We didn't see a single table of customers seated inside and maybe 6 tables outside. We sat on a broken picnic table and ordered our food. The waitress was... More

Our experience started off with dull, dark and dank interior. We came for a bite and a cocktail, the bar was filled with all the usually choices, but the owners did not have a license to serve it. After taking our order, the wait staff left our table and started moving other tables in the room before submitting our order.... More

Kinda run down place ....food was acceptable but not great given all the choices in the area. Watched the bus boy sleepily wipe down a nearby table...knocking the silverware on the floor...only to pick it up and put it back on the placemats.

Lobster roll was awesome. However the service was better. Jamaican servers where very nice. My daughter wanted juice and they didn't have any. They actually sent an employee to the store to get her juice. Amazing after 15 years in the restaurant business I have never seen a restaurant sent an employee to the store for a customer never mind... More

We decided to try this restaurant when we were in Eastham. Guess the fact that it was dinnertime and empty should have raised a red flag. The greeter was a very friendly guy. However, he was the only good part of the place along with the server. It was her first day on the job but did really well. I... More
