Great atmosphere

The past 2 vacations we have eaten here and really enjoyed the food and ambiance. The smoked lobster dip is wonderful and Patt, who I mistakenly called Sandy, is a great cook and enjoyable to visit with. You must see the old time shooting gallery that is behind the bar and get some history on... read more

We have eaten here several times and it is our favorite restaurant in Geneva on the Lake. We like it better than the 2 'fancy' restaurants here. They specialize in seafood but have steak, pasta, and other things on the menu. We started with their smoked lobster dip. Honestly this might be the best appetizer I've ever had. It is... More

We should have turned around the minute we walked into this run down restaurant and found it completely empty on a Saturday night. Unfortunately we stayed and the food was beyond terrible. The "lobster bisque" was anything but. I'm not sure what was in it, but it definitely wasn't lobster and bisque it was not. I thought I'd be safe... More

The service was good, the food just so-so. The seafood itself was good but the accompaniments were less than stellar. We ordered the Lobster Bisque which was definitely not a bisque at all. If that is what you are looking for, don't bother.

We love the Sandy Shanty. Ms. Pat is an amazing person and chef. We can't wait to visit again in 2015. The music is always amazing. Kim and Jim Hummell

My husband and I have been going out to Geneva on the Lake for several years and had always wanted to try this place. This past Thursday we gave it a whirl. I regret it. First, it took our server about 10 minutes to even notice we were there (and there was only us and one other couple in the... More

My wife and I went there Labor Day 2014 and I had Never been there before. Had the mushroom burger, which was excellent! The service was great and the young red-headed bartender was very friendly.

This is not a fancy restaurant, but had a lot of character. The bar area has a big old shooting gallery from an old carnival, and they set it off every once in awhile. Loved it. The mushroom burger was to die for. Chunks of mushrooms with onions, no meat, and just delicious. Homemade potato chips also very good!
