“Friendly and cheap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

If that sounds like a good lunch stop to you, try The Shanty Rose. We took the family, including both mother-in-laws because the sign stated $10.99 Lobster dinner. Two out of three got the lobster, but they ran out, so I got the fish n' chips. All was good and well prepared. My son enjoyed the scallops and my M-I-L enjoyed the clam chowder. Everything but the lobsters and chowder was fried so not a place we would eat often, but it was a nice treat for a day of walking around Plymouth.

“Loved this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Just loved everything about this small unpretentious place from the barman Rick, to the friendly customers to the good food. Hubbie had the crab and sausage gumbo made by Rose, fabulous, I had the clam chowder - one of the best in boston area during our trip. Thoroughly recommend it!!!

“No pretense, just good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Solid, solid place. In the middle if touristville, right on Plymouth Harbor, sits this little gem.
Ate at the bar, looking out on the boats, and ate one of the tastiest, freshest fried scallop rolls I have ever eaten.
Homemade onion rings on the side, lightly-breaded.
Solo guy with an acoustic guitar did a good job.
No frills place, not a hipster scene. Just real & real good.
Did I mention the fried scallops?

“downhill fast”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Went to the Shanty Rose with 2 friends, at their recommendation. Both had been there last year and said food was good. We ordered drinks and got large beer sized glasses of vodka drinks, so far so good! Then we ordered dinner, my friend ordered scrod and asked about the veggie and was told they had no veggie, however she could get the chicken noodle soup instead? WHAT, with fish??? My other dinner mate ordered steak tips, was never asked how she wanted them cooked and I ordered the lobster roll. Lobster roll was fine, how can you screw that up, fish came out fried, and was refused and sent back, she ordered broiled. Steak tips had half a bottle of cold teriyaki sauce poured on them. When the fish finally arrived, it was very under cooked and inedible. I will not return, very disappointing.

Don't do it! Lousy everything! Drinks stink and are measured, food is inconsistent! Huge turnover in staff. Makes regulars uncomfortable
