Without our GPS we might have never found Twinings Lobster Shanty on Fenwick Island! But find it we did - and were we ever glad! Usually in most restaurants, an appetizer is just an appetizer - operating on this premise, we decided to order 3 appetizers and a couple of sandwiches instead of one of the entrée "bundles" on the...

First, it is late December, and Lobster Shanty is closed until spring as usual (reopens in March 2015). Anxiously awaiting its reopening as it is a favorite of ours, year after year. Crab cakes are most excellent and I just love the seafood duo salad (enormous salad with shrimp and lobster salad, fresh greens, melon, berries, cucumbers, tomato, and restaurant-made... More

Our family (all adults) ate at this restaurant and it was very good. They sat us on the deck, with a nice view of the bay. Lots of families with small children made for a loud room, but otherwise the service and food was great.

scenic view from the porch and even inside. A great look at the bay and the shore birds. Service was good and the menu is more than ample. Great deals now during the winter months. Our "go to" place.

We stepped into the place on a weekend in November and it was so crowded we headed to the bar to wait. The bartenders were very friendly and alert and I got served a very good Bloody Mary with lots of olives and celery just the way I like them. We thought the food was a bit expensive so we... More

Very nice view of the bay, nice proch, but the food and drinks are overpriced. I like their Lobster salad on a New England type hot dog roll, but it is way overpriced for the amount you get.

The happy hour specials are awesome & you can enjoy them while looking at a breathtaking view. Bartender kept the drinks coming & gave us tips on fun things to do during our vacation.

Lobster Shanty is a wonderful place to watch the sunset and have a nice meal. My party of 6 dined there for dinner and had an enjoyable time. The food was very good - not the best I've ever had but worth returning again. I had the stuffed lobster tail and the lobster was delicious, the crab stuffing so-so and... More

Tried it for the first time will never come back. Tastiest thing on the plate was the chips. Not worth the money. Got hamburger and it was what you would buy already made up in the frozen isle in grocery store. Bread not fresh and cold. Tastless. Should have gone to TGIF lot cheaper and tastier.

Four of us went to Twining's Lobster Shanty Wednesday, October 14th. Since the season is coming to a close, they had specials to die for! My husband had the Flounder with Crab Imperial and I had the crab cake sandwich. The crab cake was perfectly cooked to perfection - very little filler and loads of lump crab. My husband's flounder...
