“Encore at Seafood Shanty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Just want to let the folks know that I had the pleasure of lunching at the Seafood Shanty last week, I was not at all disappointed the food was great I had the burger and mounds of fries, the other guest had the shrimp appetizer which was large enough to be considered a meal.
now to the wait staff: Rachel, a charming and efficient young woman saw to are every need with a manner most engaging and helpful. If you are on Martha's Vineyard anytime this summer give the Seafood Shanty a try.

“Good location, nice view, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Started with 'best damn Bloody Mary Evah!' And they turned out to be a weak version of my mother's tomatojuice. Nothing to see here folks. Food was good, not great. Kids ordered hamburgers and hot dogs. Again - Edgartown in general lacks healthy food alternatives for children other than greasy burgers and plate full of fries and Seafood Shanty was no exception. View was marvelous though but couldn't wait to get out if there.

“Nice view, average restaurant”

Nice view, and service was good, the food was pretty good, but bit too pricey for what you were getting.

“Delicious food, wonderful atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We sat outside on the deck and enjoyed the gorgeous views. I ordered the lobster roll and was delighted with each bite I put in my mouth! The roll was overflowing with huge lumps of lobster and I was happily forced to eat it with a fork! My husband ordered a chicken sanswhich which he said was very good as well. Plus the prices here were reasonable as well. We left here very happy and satisfied. We would definitely come back!

“Simple but good food with a fantastic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Sit on the top deck and look out over the harbor. Very weather dependent as it can get cold and windy quickly. If weather is a problem, eat downstairs. The view isn't as good but the food is adequate.
