Lunch

Never heard of this place and a friend recommended that we meet there for lunch. It was fantastic, the people were very nice and the food was excellent. The bartender was so attentive and nice.

The beer crowd haunts the bar and the diners on the other side of the wall. The food quality is really excellent and staff super helpful and friendly. The steak tips were some of the best tasting in town but for $ 18 there were about 6 ounces of them. A really nice place to relax and enjoy friends and... More

Favorite local spot for our family of 5; makes everyone happy and doesn't break the bank! Super happy they are expanding so bar will be separate.

Went in w/Group-on like coupon & found it satisfactory. Special was a good value. They have different special each day. Serving size was decent, flavorful. Not a lot on net about this place but word-of-mouth appears to be working for them. About to expand into adjoining space in their strip mall. I shall return.

I work nearby the Shanty and was thrilled to have another option for lunch. When it first opened I thought the menu was much too extensive for any of it to actually be any good. I tried it in the first few weeks it was open and had the haddock sliders (since removed from the menu) with sweet potato fries.... More

Been to the Shanty four times, have eaten on three occasions. I find it to be frustrating, based upon weak bartenders/servers, a lack of flexibility when it comes to the menu, and confusion among the staff about what time they would close. After a while, I just stopped going. I think as a new place in town it is struggling... More

My wife and I ate here a week after the place opened, based on a positive sounding article in the newspaper. The owners apparently have a good history of operating other restaurants. The first thing we noticed was the slightly off atmosphere. The place bills itself as a "family friendly sports bar." It kind of exists in a Twilight Zone... More
