Very popular spot on Martha's Vineyard with good food and service. Chowder and lobster tolls were very good. Staff was very accommodating for our party of 12. Worth the visit!

Not too keen on this location. Has a great rooftop view but that's about it. Waiting staff is slow and more concerned with the music and socializing. Food is expensive. Lobster Roll was over priced and they short you on the lobster. You can find a better place if you look.

Lobster Roll was huge and tasty and the waitress was prompt and friendly. Overall experience was dampened by a rude hostess at the front desk and dozens of senior citizens bearded in and out with their tour buses. They don't honor reservations to sit out on the picturesque deck,

My party of 10 (5 adults, 5 kids) had a delightful meal here. The reason I write though is to recognize our server Jeff. I spoke to his GM Luis at the end of the meal to emphasize what a terrific job he did but it is truly worth noting what an incredible server and person Jeff is. We are... More

We visited it twice in one week. They have indoor seating as well as an outdoor open deck upstairs. Our food was well prepared & delicious. I also had the lobster roll, big & yummy. We were there during a storm & a power outage. The staff was cool & able to function without any problems. If you go to... More

12 of us strolled into Seafood Shanty for lunch --- with reservations and the table was ready for us and one of the sweetest servers took care of us -- and made the ordering and serving look easy. Maybe it was --- soups and lobster rolls or fish and chips seemed to be the call of the day. The lobster... More

Bussy place with friendy staff and a great location on the habour. The lobster roll is good and the brioche is one of the better I had.

This is a decent restaurant with amazing views. We sat inside because I am not much of an outdoor person. We had the following: Pound and half steamed lobster with a potato - a good lobster, not the best, not the worst. The potato was crusted with salt which was nice Lobster roll - very tasty hot dog - my... More

True...more than 4 decades since last visit. Back then there were singing waiters and waitresses and a musical director. Now there's just the food and it still pleases. Outrageous lobster roll. But I like the belly clams best. OK a little over-fried this time but so fresh! Give SS a shot...you can't go wrong with the views in particular.

Waltzed in with a party of five on a Friday night and we were seated right away. A bit suspicious that they were able to seat us last minute...no need to be! Food and service were great! Lots to choose from on the menu. No frills, but tasty meals. Sister, bro-in-law, and niece all enjoyed cheeseburgers. They all said they... More
