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

My daughter and I went there for dinner during the week on off season. It was not too crowded when we first got there so were seated right away. The view was fantastic over looking water. Everything on the menu was expensive but I guess because of location and view. We both got lobster rolls was delicious but if you... More

The menu is full of lobster choices from sandwiches to full lobster dinners. You will find fast friendly service in a relaxing setting on the bay. They are children friendly. We took advantage of the supplied binoculars to bird watch while we waited for our food.

We all enjoyed lobster shanty very much. Nice atmosphere, very good service, it was a little loud, but so were we! Our family consists of a four year old, a vegetarian, and a person who does not care for seafood, the other three of us like just about anything. Something for everyone! Had a little wait but that was fine... More

My wife and I have been going to Ocean City, MD for many years. With Maryland Blue Crabs on our minds we never dined at The Lobster Shanty. Well, this time we went and sat at the bar. The bar is vibrant with a wonderful view of the water (if you sit at the bar itself, make sure that you... More

My wife and I had a wonderful lunch at the Lobster Shanty on Tuesday. She had the delicious lobster mac and cheese and I had the fabulous shrimp and lobster salad. Both choices were excellent! The view of the marsh and Assawoman Bay are beautiful. We watched a blue heron and a large heron in the marsh. We ate outside... More
