Sometimes it can be noisy, but the food is always good. Great location and great owner. Worth a look

We've had several meals at the Shanty but am wondering why we still go there...
The food is ok but nothing I'd rave about. The atmosphere is nice and the service is great.
With the family owned fish market right next door you would think the seafood would be excellent but at least the Cod for the Friday Night fish fry was one of the worst fish fries I've had, and I've lots of them..
Bland, tasteless and dry. Hey, but the salad was good!
Lukewarm beer...Whatever...
Nice try guys,
I must say that the appetizers are good. Try the whiskey shrimp..
The afterglow of being on Drive-ins, Diners and Dives can't last forever...

A very unique dining experience in the middle of nowhere.Extensive menu offering many great choices. I had one of the featured specials ,the walleye fish , very generous portion broiled to perfection .Five steak filets all but one cooked to perfection .The shrimp dejongh was a tasty appetizer. I opted for the oysters.We have eaten here several times with our family who reside in Lake Villa, I'll. A great locals stop .... Check it out if ever in the area.
