Good Food and Great View

Agree with others that the food is OK but the location and views are the reason to consider this place for a meal. Frankly, my lobster roll sucked. Son's calamari though was quite good and I personally enjoyed the spicy Thai chili dip. Beer was cold and fresh. Dessert was ho hum. The menu did offer variety enough to please... More

The good was great but there was not any food that was not fried. If you are looking for something on the lighter side I would not recommend this. If you are hungover this place is spot on.

They boast about their huge lobster roll - and truly there is a lot of meat, but it is dry and tasteless. Almost like it was frozen? The kids had pasta - very underwhelming. It's a pretty spot in Edgartown, but if you want a good lobster roll - go elsewhere!

We have made the Seafood Shanty a regular stop for at least five years after the Independence Day parade in Edgartown. Our server, Jeff was attentive but not overbearing, just the right measure. We were slightly disappointed that a "custom" order could not be accommodated, but given the holiday crush, we understood and made an appropriate selection. The fireworks after... More

Ate here twice -- mostly because of the location. Beautiful views from every table. Service fast and lovely. Great for kids. Food good but not great. Nice to get sushi though!

Very good Cod fish. Very good service and didn't wait very long for a busy crowd. Reasonable prices! Took some great pictures outside.

Sat on the outside deck. The view was fantastic and the seafood meal was a match. Very nice service. Highly recommended.

We lived in Belgium for 2 years and delighted in the mussels (moules) available there. My plate of mussels was wonderful; transporting me back to our time in Belgium. Bret our server was attentive but not intrusive. The serve staff and bus staff were well organized for an efficient organization. Our observation about cleanliness was comforting.... tables were cleaned with... More
