4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Great place and great food. Bartenders Chris and Damon super.

We like dining at the bar best. Nice view of the bay.

“Clam Chowder and Lobster Rolls Excellent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

My barber Luigi recommended this place and he was right. Excellent food at good value with a great view of the bay. A must for any Ocean City Maryland visit. Lobster roll and clam chowder are phenomenal.

“Good food, small portions, expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

My family of five went here on Father's Day. My boys are 15, 13, 9 yrs old. The crab cakes were good, but small for $25. The lobster cake for $14 was puny. The lobster salad roll for $15 was good but the lettuce in the roll made it look like there was more lobster salad than there was, disappointing. Decent size salmon for $26. The chips that come with the meal are bagged Herrs. Low class for a high priced restaurant. The music was loud and irritating 70's genre. My wife got the blueberry cake for dessert and said it was excellent. Overall, good food but small portions and overpriced.

“great views of bay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Lobster shanty has been in business for three years and is a great place to eat and watch the bay-they have lobster specials -newburg/thermador etc but is not like the lobster places in Maine where whole lobster is their mainstay-their menu has not changed that much and needs a seafood uplift -ok but not great -PS no matt3er what the sign says they continue to keep one of the twin exit doors locked which would become a great liability in an emergency

“Great place with a great view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The food and atmosphere are great. Make sure that you have reservations. Good bar and drinks. Excellent food. A funky atmosphere. Parking is limited. One mile west of Coastal Highway on Route 54. Worth a try.
