Good Place to Eat

My wife and I were on a Fall Foliage Tour and visited Martha's Vineyard. We stopped here for lunch. Food was very good and the service was too. If you are in Edgartown, I would recommend checking out this restaurant. We had the Cajun Mahi Sandwich and it was very good.

The food is always fresh and delicious and there is something for everyone. They have the best clam chowder! This place can get loud and the tables are close, but you can sit outside or upstairs. We eat here upon arrival!

Having tried clam chowder all over the USA from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast and in between, I can honestly say this is the best clam chowder I have ever had. It was rich and creamy, lots of clam pieces, not large clumps of potatoes, and expertly seasoned. My wife had the award winning lobster roll, but I'd... More

After a long tour in Martha's Vineyard, we finally need something to revive our energy and so lucky we decided to dine here. The view was very relaxing. We ordered Fried Shrimp, Garden Salad and Chicken Fingers and all were very good.

A must stop for lunch or an afternoon snack and cocktail!! The service was excellent. The food was very good. Not too expensive. A tourist favorite but the view of the harbor and Chappy is priceless!

The food, drinks and service were excellent at this restaurant. I got a lobster roll and it had very little (very little) filler and was mostly all lobster. In addition my shrimp bloody mary was perfect with the meal. Our server was Shelley and she was very professional and took good care of us. She has a great personality.

What a great place we found to have delicious Lobster. This little town (Edgartown) was amazing anyway then it was a boost to find a place like this to eat. The staff was excellent and the price was reasonable for the food we received. I would definitely recommend the Seafood Shanty and would visit here again.

This restaurant was just a wonderful dining experience. We had the best service and food while sitting on the deck overlooking Edgartown Harbor. Just a delightful way to start the long holiday weekend. Highly recommend!
