This was my first time here for a Sunday happy hour lunch. We met with another couple at their outside bar overlooking the bay area. The other couple was here first so they held our two bar stools prior to our arrival. The bar stools...here don’t have supporting backs, therefore, are not so comfortable compared to other bar stools with supporting backs at other bars. The views of the bay were spectacular. I started with and enjoyed two of their Outlaw Rum Runners with white rum, blackberry brandy, orange and pineapple with a Myers floater for $10 each. I also enjoyed my lobster quesadilla with chunky lobster, green onions, mushrooms and three cheeses with a side of house made pico, sour cream and guacamole for $23. Our bartender Ben was very effective to serve our needs. My total bill was $72 less gratuities. We agreed we will continue to visit here for happy hour and more happy hour lobster lunches.More

We wanted to sit outside due to covid concerns. They had no to-go option on a Tuesday evening, and said we could not sit at the empty outdoor picnic tables. We ended up waiting & sitting in the partially open air section, which was a...nice view of the birds (though the waitress didn't know what kind of birds they were). But the whole reason we went was for the hot lobster roll. It was TERRIBLE. Hardly any meat & extremely overcooked & chewy. Very disappointed!!More

Just okay. We love Nantucket's (the sister restaurant) and we have been coming here the last two years but this year we were disappointed. Sat at a high top outside not meant for 10 people (please only sit 8 here in the future). Drinks are...always delicious! The crushes and mojitos were good, the Malibu bay breeze was terrible! The gluten free chowder is a must. The lobster mac and cheese my son loves. Dad loves the Kobe style steak sandwich. The stuffed flounder was a little tasteless and blah. Our waiter Jake was good but you could tell they have a staff shortage, he was running from table to table. Waited FOREVER for drinks, and the check! Overall not the "must go here" restaurant it used to be. Hopefully, this is just a one off night, we will try it next year!More

We are locals and have been here twice. Location is great, atmosphere and view are wonderful. Unfortunately we have been disappointed with the lobster twice now. The first time as an entree (whole lobster), and then more recently with the lobster rolls. Overcooked and quite...rubbery, not much taste. Service wasn't great either, nice server but long wait for drinks, a few mix ups with what we ordered. I don't like to write negative reviews, but... if you're like us and don't treat yourself often and want to make sure you won't be disappointed, you may want to go elsewhere. Sorry... I wanted to love it.More

Husband and I ate dinner here and it was a great way to end our day trip. We did not have reservations but they sat us immediately. Which was great because they were busy. Our server was very attentive and friendly. I had the Hot...Butter Old Bay Lobster Rill which was delicious. Husband had the Surf and Turf which he said was very good. Very relaxed atmosphere and beautiful view of the water and marsh land. This was our second time here and we will be back again.More

After a round of golf, my buddy took me to this joint ... and I am so happy he did. We threw back a few beers and then placed an order. We started with some steamed shrimp ... perfectly cooked. Then, we each got a...lobster roll. Wow! Very well prepared ... and fresh! Not overly dressed so you can really taste the lobster. This is one of those experiences where you wish you had a second stomach. You just want more. Can't wait to return.More

Great selection of seafood items with interesting specials. Our group of 6 enjoyed combos including a 1 Lb lobster, 1/4 Lb shrimp, corn & cole slaw which was very good & slightly pricey at $45. Others had crab cakes which were mostly crab & not...fillers, baked grouper & shrimp scampi.More

Even if you don’t eat shellfish this restaurant is a gem. The salmon was prepared perfectly and was delicious. Jessica, the bartender, was an excellent hostess and gave my bourbon a country club pour. Add to that the views and the relaxed atmosphere and this...is the perfect beach town restaurant.More

We had a 55th Birthday celebration at the Shanty with 25 guests. Our server Jen was the best I have ever had, Jen was attentive to each and everyone of us, she never made a mistake in our orders, even when we changed some of...them for other menu choices. Our drinks arrived in a timely manner and the food came so that we ate all at once, amazing. I made a request to Jen to serve our birthday guest a slice of cake so that we could sing happy birthday and she presented her with the most delicious dessert filled with ice cream, whipped cream and fruits enough for one whole table. Thank you Jen, for making our friend's birthday and all of us so happy!More
