Friends wanted to come here. My last experience was so bad food and service I was cringing thank god when we got here it was closed permanently. This POS place should have never been allowed to go on as long as thwy did. Yay for small favors. Red lobster was great go there.

Well, my wife and I went there last week, and there's a sign on the door stating that they have ceased operation. It doesn't really surprise me, as their food and service had progressed from average to bad since they opened. In fact, the reason we were going there was to give them one last chance before we took them... More

I'm sad to report that this place is now closed. I really had hopes that they could turn things around and I'm not sure what the REAL problem was, but what a shame. They had revamped their menus and those were easier to read now, but I fear their changes were too little too late. I had one last lunch... More

The food was not good. My husbands meal never came and when we asked where it was our waiter said they did not have what he ordered. On another day I made the mistake of ordering a seafood clam bake which comes in a tin bucket you cook at home. It was suppose to have 2 pounds of shrimp and... More

Took my 9 year old son here because he likes seafood and had never been here. I should have known when I only saw 3 cars parked in the lot that it wasn't going to be a good experience. Our drinks tasted weird. I asked for a diet soda to replace the tea that I just couldn't drink because it... More

Overall it was a disappointing Saturday night out. The service was very good, our waitress was very attentive and everything was done quickly and efficiently. The other staff members were also very friendly and went out of their way to greet us. The decor is somewhat drab, it's a dark colors all around and not many interesting decorations. I decided...

Took my son and a party of six to lunch on a Sunday afternoon to celebrate his birthday. Three had the steamer pots, one had a custom made plate of chicken and crabcakes and the rest had perfectly steamed snow crab. Our server was wonderful, I wish I could remember his name. I had gone to the Seafood Shanty in... More

I have been to this restaurant almost 10 times since it first opened and for the most part the food has been good so my husband and I keep coming back. The prices are a little high so we usually only go when we find the BOGO free lunch or dinner coupons that are in the local newspaper. The house... More

I was excited to hear that seafood shanty was reopening With some of the original recipes. The restaurant seemed unorganized our wait time for food was way too long. We were looking forward to a good seafood meal Instead what we received was a mediocre meal and small portions for high prices. Disappointed skip this one
