We liked the view. The food was OK, but slow in coming out. And the service was not very good. It tool 20 minutes to get a cup of coffee, and then when I asked for a second one, two different people brought them. The...More
In this case, “shanty” is a cute name for ‘large restaurant with banquet rooms’. It’s on the bay side, adjacent to fishing boat docks, with lots of parking across the street.
We had the excellent Restaurant Week special, a real deal at $32 for three...More
First of all, the food is great. I've been eating here a few times a year for 40 years. But, I'm more of a refueler than a fine diner, so read the other reviews. I do like seafood, and I like this menu. What I...More

The steak and lobster are delicious. The staff are attentive and friendly. The Lobster Shanty is clean, well kept with plenty of off street parking. Get a wonderful breath of the ocean/inlet air by stepping outside on the boardwalk.
Busy area so wasn’t expecting much however my wife and I were very pleased with the service, food and water front location. Had to valet park so this isn’t a cheap night out but could be a special one.
