Stopped at this spot for lunch today. Ate on upper deck.....a bit cool so stayed inside. Great view over the water. We had fried clams. Very good but far too many French fries with them. We also had wings.....huge portion. Basket of French fries was enough for 4 people. Fried shrimp good. Crab cake sandwich was a disappointment. Waitress was... More

While visiting the Cape Cod area, we selected the Shanty because of it's reviews. The lobster roll received fabulous ratings, so 2 of us tried it. What a disappointment as we have ordered lobster rolls on our previous trip to other areas of the state and thought they were wonderful. These were not tasty, had little flavor with little seasoning.... More

Lobster quesadilla was small, but very appetizing. Came with a salad. Lobster roll was delicious. Just the right amount of mayo. (light) on a very oversized bun (just break some of the bread off). Ate here based on 2 tour guides recommendation. The water view was fabulous. We loved it!

Located right on the waterfront, this restaurant offers a seaside view from nearly every table. The menu doesn't offer gourmet fare, but based on our experience it's good, solid seafood, well prepared. I had the fried haddock sandwich and my wife had the crab cake sandwich. They were both delicious, but ultimately impossible to eat without a knife and fork.... More

I love clan chowder and was more than pleased at the number and size of the clams in the Chowder. The fish and chips was good, but with far more chips (fries) than fish. Good view of the harbor from the dining room or from the outside deck.

The kind of meal that you laugh at how inexplicably, horrifyingly bad it is, then spend the next few hours bemoaning how truly bad it was as it passes (swiftly and noisily) through you, and then generates derisive laughter for months to come. It's popular - and not just among tourists who would not know better; but it is simply... More

We chose this restaurant so that we could eat outside and watch the boats in the harbor. It was a chilly night , but oh the view! Just a little too cold and windy to fully enjoy the experience. My lobster roll was delicious and a menu favorite. It came with a green salad which was a bonus. We would... More

Based on recommendations, we visited the Seafood Shanty for lunch and we were not disappointed. The drinks we started off with were well-made and perfect to sip outside on the upstairs deck on a nice Fall day. One lobster roll was ordered and it was amazing. The grilled Mahi sandwich was also a great choice! Very happy with our overall... More

We went for dinner and had a nice view of the waterfront. Two if us ordered the lobster roll which had big chunks of lobster and it was very tasty. We did feel that the restaurant was lacking in ambiance, however I would go back for the food and the view.
