This is our favorite place to go in Delmarwa. The food is great and the view is amazing. The service in the bar area is friendlier than the restaurant but the food and view more than makes up for it. Highly recommend this place.

Returned to the Lobster Shanty after a year away (thanks Covid)! Anyway, the food was excellent, and the service was the best. Jessica is a new addition to the Shanty staff and does a terrific job. Very knowledgeable, helpful and personable. Great service and food....Will be back often.More

My wife and I stopped in for a lobster roll and a beer. We were not disappointed. The lobster rolls were not what I consider to be the gold standard - knuckles and claw meat - but they were lobster and claw meat. Very good....Beer is only in a bottle.More

This restaurant has a nice eclectic vibe to it. Sat at the windows by the water which is a nice perk. Waiter was friendly and the service was good. We order the lobster pot pie, salmon and the steak. These were all great specials for...$19. All the food that went by looked delicious. I forgot to mention the wonderful rolls which were fantastic. Definitely worth a trip back!More

We ate dinner outside at Dawson's Hideaway at the Lobster Shanty. This is the second time we've been waited on by a server named Kevin. He has very poor customer service skills and seems to have an attitude. All three couples at our table tonight...felt the same way about the server. It left a bad impression on our dining experience.More

My husband and I had a Fantastic seafood combo salad , which we took to go on Wednesday. It had shrimp salad(8 large shrimp) and Lobster salad ( large chunks ) both lightly dressed, on salad greens, with fresh berries and salad veggies. $26.00 each.... well worth it. More a dinner size. Very delicious!More

We were at this restaurant after a few years with a large family crowd. we absolutely loved it the first time. This time was not good. While the ambiance was view was nice, the service and food nothing like the first time. Our waiter had...a somewhat annoyed manner, wasn't aware of gluten free options at first, was hard to get his attention. The steamers were ordinary. A few of us ordered lobster rolls. They were definitely smaller than we remembered and were lacking in lobster. The rolls were only cut halfway through with the lobster on top giving the appearance that there was more lobster in them. When we finally got the waiter's attention, the manager pleasantly had them refilled properly. After all the food was served, the waiter then brought over a bowl of rolls. We skipped dessert. Not worth a return trip with all the other choices around.More

One of our favorite restaurants in Fenwick. Great food, drinks and atmosphere. Love sitting downstairs looking our at the bay.

Had the "hot old bay lobster roll". Plenty of lobster buried and overflowing a really nice toasted roll. Cole slaw was good too!
