We came here with four kids and enjoyed the view from the deck. This place is a ritual visit for us every year. It is typical upgraded bar food but oddly enough the salads are delicious. The staff was friendly and good came out smoothly.

We had a nice -but expensive lunch here. The view is fantastic. Lobster Quesadillas were delicious and different. Great part of our Martha's Vineyard excursion.

Nice atmosphere, family spot. Lots of options. We clearly chose the wrong one. Had lobster roll (it was oK), prime rib (not so good), chilean sea bass with feta (not good), thai salmon (got good reviews), shrimp po boy (so so). Food is a big MISS. Everyone was displeased with their meal. Not a lot of flavor and staff wasn't... More

I highly recommend the clams at the Seafood Shanty. You also get a great view of harbor from your table. Fast service and many choices on menu.

Lively atmosphere with a great deck overlooking the Chappy ferry. Good menu with plenty of options. Great place for dinner and drinks on a nice night for families or partiers.

We dined here for lunch after a bike ride from Oak Bluffs. The weather was nice enough to sit outside but we opted for a nice table near the window perfect for watching the boats and passersby. We had a light lunch - clam chowder and salmon rolls from the sushi menu. The chowder was filling and fresh-tasting with chunks... More

I have been going to the Shanty for well over 10 years and always have a good experience. The food is not the best on the island however the drinks are cold, views are great and the service is good. A great spot for meeting up with friends and having a drink and light fare.

Upon arriving in Edgartown this was my first dinner, my favorite spot in previous years is as good as ever. This was the first of two visits while in Edgartown for the Fourth of July. If you want a view of Edgartown Harbor, head for the upstairs deck. From there you can see the On Time Chappy ferry, the sailboats... More

This restaurant has good views of the harbor, especially if seated on the balconies. The clam chowder was great! The Cesar salad and Greek salad were as expected. They had tasty rolls and the service was efficient and pleasant. I would recommend for lunch.

My friends and I were on the Vineyard for 4th of July weekend & had a fantastic time at the Shanty! We were there for the fireworks and had great cocktails and unbeatable service. Two servers who called themselves, "Damzen" were a riot with their outrageous outfits and fun personalities. What a true experience! We will definitely go back for... More
