Had a wonderful time eating dinner at the Seafood Shanty. The view was great out on the deck and the weather as perfect for a late July. The waitress was the best I have had in a long time. Her name was Brielle, she said she was new to the island and had a wonderful personality. Definitely worth the view,... More

The only reason I'm giving this place 2 stars is because the clam chowder was decent and the view was awesome. Other than that... This was exactly the opposite of what a seafood restaurant in Martha's Vineyard (you know... An island with seafood all around) should be. I'm not talking about the ambiance- it's a fine place; rooftop deck is... More

Basically good food and atmosphere. I thought it was a bit overpriced. Service was good. Very busy so it must be a popular spot for locals. Onion soup was very good.

We visited the Seafood Shanty for lunch while out shopping in Edgartown on a cloudy day. While I wouldn't say you naturally think of pulled pork when you go to Martha's Vineyard, I was pleasantly surprised with the sandwich. It's mostly about the sauce anyway, right? It was sweet & tangy with the right amount of brown sugar & vinegar.... More

the upstairs deck has one of the best views of Edgartown Harbor imaginable, the service is pretty good, as is the food. Fish sandwich works best for me, but the menu is perhaps overly broad.

Mid Sunday afternoon after driving tour of first visit to the island we decided to have drinks on the deck at the Shanty. Had one drink at bar while we waited, then got a table for six (note - that though saw or read any sign they add 20% gratuity and I assume it is for groups of 6 or... More

We went to the Shanty for lunch and it was quite busy with a party of 30 taking up a lot of the waitstaff time. But we were acknowledged and apologized to. My husband's salmon came out overdone, it was quickly replaced. Shout out to Luis the manager who was very accommodating.

This place is either new or recently remodeled and it is gorgeous! It's so nice to find a clean, well maintained restaurant in an area where alot of places are not well kept. We had salads, burgers and seafood and it was all great. The kids menu is typical and has good sized portions. A little pricey but it was... More

My family and I have been visiting Martha's Vineyard for 10 years and this restaurant/bar is still one of our favorites. It is in a great location, looking out in Edgartown harbor. Great food and drinks too!

Last year, we went on a date to the Seafood Shanty. It was a July night and, as usual, things were busy. Not extraordinarily so but Martha's Vineyard in the summer busy. Last year's dinner was disappointing and even after speaking to the manager, we left unsatisfied. Once we returned home, we sent an email to the restaurant and the... More
