I was in Burlington for a conference and went there alone for dinner. I ordered the fisherman's platter (broiled). Delicious. The atmosphere is very simple and casual (paper napkins) and not a place I would hang out in for too long so I got a slice of amaretto pie to go (also delicious). The view of the lake is beautiful.... More

Stopped in for another great meal. My cousin and I each got the lobster bisque which was very good. I had mine in a bread bowl which was a good choice. I ordered the special but asked for scallops instead of shrimp,it was served with butternut squash ravioli in a cream sauce and it was oh so tasty! There was... More

This is a very good place for seafood. Have visited several times over the years and have been satisfied with the food here. The service is sometimes spotty but at last visit was friendly and attentive. This is a family type restaurant good value.

The Shanty is located within water view of Lake Champlain. The views are relaxing while you enjoy great seafood. This is a distinct must go spot in Burlington.

Been back to the Shanty twice this year. Both times left sated. All the seafood is as good as you find on the ocean. The Shanty is rare as it is the one place in Vermont where you can actually find belly clams. All of the people that ate with us enjoyed the variety of meals and felt they were... More

We were in Burlington on Sunday, August 24 moving our daughter in to UVM for the year, and decided that we were in the mood for seafood and pasta with a lake view, since it was such a nice day. My wife and I both had the Seafood Fra Diavolo special, paired with a bottle of the house Pinot Grigio,... More

We were in Burlington celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary. We had eaten at the Ice House across the street and I saw the Shanty and checked out their menu. We thought it would be a good place. Although they don't do reservations, we called two hours ahead and Sarah said she would do her best to have a window table... More

My family of four, including two hungry teenagers, ate here on 8-10-2014 and were very satisfied. This is a nice, comfortable setting with a lakeside view. The lobster bisque had large chunks of lobster, the clam chowder had multiple clam pieces and were served (a bonus!) with individual rolls and coleslaw. The salmon platter had Atlantic salmon, deep sea scallops,... More

Whenever we are in Burlington Vermont we try and have lunch at Shanty On The Shore. We both ordered steamed clams, which were plentiful and delicious. Would recommend the clams. The view is always good and the service was very good. We have never had dinner at the Shanty, but would definitely recommend for lunch.
