A nice, run of the mill fine dining experience. Really nothing creative. In addition, sits on Rt 1 - no view or beach ambiance.

Restaurant was closed when we visited the area in February but now open (late March)... it was worth the retry! Lobster mac n cheese was tasty, but may be better in an Alfredo or sharper cheese sauce... and with a few more lobster pieces. The lobster roll was delicious and merited an A+. I WOULD recommend, however, removing the accompanying... More

Very cute restaurant. Either Lobster for dinner or the lobster roll for lunch, always a great meal. Also you have to get the lobster bloody Mary, so GOOD!

Love this place. Been going since opening weekend. Food is good and reasonably priced. You must try the Lobster pot pie and the chowda

The view from this restaurant is incredible. It is very busy and the food is very good. I get the stuffed lobster tail but there is several things on the menu I enjoy. Give it a shot and catch a sunset there.

This place is packed every night so I figured it must be awesome. It was good, but not great. The lobster cake was very good, but the crab cake was undercooked. My son ordered oysters and was constantly picking little bits of shell out of his mouth. I'd go back, but there are better restaurants in the area.

I've been to the Lobster Shanty twice for lunch and I haven't been disappointed. The views out over the bay were fantastic! I've had the lobster roll both times ($15). It is served on a fresh butter grilled roll and comes with chips and a small coleslaw. My friend and I decided to share the Chunky Lobster Guacamole as an... More

Although this was not one of the best meals I've ever eaten, the service was. We had one of the best waiters ever, Karl. He was very personal, explained items on the menu, came back often to check on us --just a super guy!!!! The wings were fantastic (a suggestion from Karl), tossed in butter and Old Bay seasoning. We... More

Here in October on a beautiful weekend, no wait being seated. Had chowder, mussels, and the duo salad, which has shrimp and lobster on it. All was quite good, service was prompt and pleasant. No complaints.

We dined here in early October, and were treated to a spectacular sunset over the bay on the shore side of Ocean City's barrier island sandspit. The food was about average for a beach restaurant, the usual mix of seafood and burgers. My lobster and shrimp combo was well prepared, with Old Bay spice on the shrimp. The lobster was... More
