Lovely water views, good drinks, good food - what else do you want! Go to the terrace if the weather permits it.

We have to say that the food was not quite as good as other times we have been here over the years. The clam plate looked huge when it came out but sadly the french fries under the clams made it look like a lot of clams but that was not the case. We ordered the shrimp cocktail as an... More

Kind of weird saying great quesadillas at a seafood restaurant but I had the fish and chips and it was not wow...the quesadillas my fiancée had were amazing to say the least. Friendly staff, great views but a bit windy on the day.

I had the blackened mahi over rice which I thought sounded amazing. Turned out to be quite bland and service was pretty disappointing as well. Just seemed like another table they wanted to finish up with. Nice view, we were trapped by it. Should have gone to the Atlantic for a better but more expensive meal.

Want to sit upstairs? Go straight on up - there is a separate hostess. Don't waste your time waiting in line downstairs. I had a salad which wasn't good. My husband likes his burger. Kids liked the free popcorn. I don't like lobster rolls, but if you do, I saw several and they looked HUGE.

Casual atmosphere and a heaping lobster roll. Can you beat that? Seafood shanty is the place in Edgartown to get seafood in a no fuss atmosphere. Good service and a wonderful view of the harbour make this one of my favourites on the island.

Every seaside summer community I've ever visited has a restaurant like this: it's well-located in town; it overlooks a quaint, active marina; and it offers overpriced favorites like fried clams and fish & chips. Unfortunately, because of its location, it has no incentive to offer good food. So at best I would describe it as "edible." Stick to the fish... More

The one place were I expected good seafood. Don't order the lobster any size they are chewing gum. The service is mediocre best case. Food came out cold and the wait wasn't worth it. If you want to get sushi, this is a good choice.

You can't beat the location overlooking the water. But the crab cake sandwich was mediocre at best, the tuna sushi roll very overpriced and the steamed dumplings were quite good. You're paying for the great location here, not the quality of the food.
