I work nearby the Shanty and was thrilled to have another option for lunch. When it first opened I thought the menu was much too extensive for any of it to actually be any good. I tried it in the first few weeks it was open and had the haddock sliders (since removed from the menu) with sweet potato fries. My co-worker had the steak tip appetizer over rice pilaf (also since removed). Both were very good and we were pleasantly surprised. Today, working on a weekend, our team grabbed lunch. I was happy to see the menu had been cut back substantially from the original options. There are still plenty of choices for most tastes and a better chance at getting it right. At least that is what I thought. I was clearly wrong. I ordered the chicken Caesar wrap with a side of sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries (how can you go wrong) were clearly cooked in oil that might very well be the original from when the Shanty opened. Although they were not burned, they had a slight taste of it - just old oil. The chicken in the wrap was slightly overcooked and the dressing did not have a nice flavor at all. I am extremely disappointed knowing it is so close but yet I will not go back.
