Yummy lunch

Our group stopped for lunch while visiting Edgartown. Beautiful view, attentive service, and good food. We sat w/a view overlooking the harbor which was nice. The atmosphere is really nice. I would recommend that you visit if in the area. You won't be disappointed.

The food and cocktails are a little pricy for what they are, which is ok. No complaints but nothing to get excited about either. Great view, over -looking harbor and Chappie.

We went here for lunch because we wanted to enjoy the view while we ate. It was very nice. The lobster rolls were overflowing with meat so the $20 wasn't too bad; however, I have had better. My daughter had the shrimp pesto pasta which was very good and there were several nice size shrimp. Once again a $20 dish... More

This is exactly the kind of place that you would hope a restaurant called the Seafood Shanty, with an outdoor rooftop location overlooking Edgartown harbor, would be. The seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection, there is a great view all around of the scenic, bustling harbor (beautifully lit up at night), and the drinks and atmosphere can't be beat.

Great location, right the Edgar Town Marina Stick to the basics and you will be fine. Fish and chips for example. Sword fish was bland and over cooked. Same for the rice that came with it. Sushi not good either. Service is not great. They don't know he menu and can't recommend anything. Can do better.

My husband and I took our three small children there for dinner. The location was fantastic. The views were terrific. However, the food left much to be desired. We both ordered the surf and turf. The sirloin was cooked to medium and was still tough and tasteless. The lobster was delivered with no claw crackers. Totally underwhelming. Our daughters burger... More

Lobster Bisque and a cocktail on the waterfront. The waiter was great; management was far less welcoming. I think we had three policies quoted to us before we were seated. The lobster bisque was bland and had little meat in it. Not recommended. The cocktails were refreshing. You're paying for the view and the location. May as well eat elsewhere... More
