After reading all the positive reviews, my wife and I decided to give it a try. In a word, we were disappointed. The hostess didn’t exactly welcome us with open arms. Our server was competent and pleasant. The food was just okay and certainly didn’t...More

Lobster Shanty is our place to watch the Triple Crown races. Good food and drink specials and race pools. Very friendly staff. And views of the bay are outstanding.

Located on the bay west of Fenwick Island, the Shanty is related to Nantucket’s... but much less formal... food quality is excellent in a bar-like setting... Lobster roll was akin to Cape Cod quality... Went for lunch and enjoyed it - we plan to bring...More
