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...

Very nice almost upscale kind of place. First thing you will notice is the killer view of Assawoman Bay. There is not a bad seat in the place. Food is very nicely done, almost a foodie place. Lobster bisque is worth going for alone. While the food is good, I could almost overlook any bad about this place for the... More

Just left the Lobster Shanty. Had lunch with my wife and daughter. Loved our seats with view of the bay and Mike did a great job with service. Started with the Shanty fries (cheesy crab fries) and we really liked them. Then the Lobster Mac n cheese. It was better as it cooled down but the lobster wasn't really tasty... More

Everything about our experience at Twining's was outstanding. I can still taste the delicious chicken imperial. My husband's lobster cheeseburger was out of this world. The prices were reasonable. The portions were hearty. The food was cooked right. The server was friendly and excellent. The sunset was spectacular. Can't wait to go back!

Food is expensive and not good. You have to order happy hour items at the bar. Kind of inconvenient. Their sister restaurant, Nantuckets in Fenwick is awesome. Portions are also minimal.

Very nice restaurant on Rt. 54. Great service, varied menu , Good view of the bay. The lobster BLT was delicious. Plenty of lobster . The kobe beef cheese steak was more than filling. A little out of the way if staying in O.C. Just over the state line . Harpoon Hannah's is near by and is another great place... More

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...

Service was ok. Lobster was ok. It was completely packed, so people do flock there - just nothing special for the price. Same owners as "Nantucket"

We had a wonderful meal here at the end of the summer. The outdoor seating is covered with fans and faces the bay. Inside seating has large windows. The restaurant has a bar area. There were many family groups in the restaurant, but was also comfortable for couples. This is not fancy, but the food and service are excellent. There... More
