“Good food, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2011

We were having a wonderful meal on the upper deck, when my wife ate a bad mussel. Then another. The was so upset that she completely lost her appetite. The manager happened to be making the rounds and asked how our meals were. When he heard my wife's experience he immediately took her meal off the bill and gave us a discount on future visits. I was so impressed with how the Shanty treated us. Definitely worth a second chance.

“Good meal with a fabulous view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2011

My family recently had dinner at the Seafood Shanty in Edgartown. It's a bit pricey, but you can't beat the view - big windows overlooking the harbor. The food was very good, as was the service. We will go back next time we are on the Vineyard.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2011

We got into town later that day and wanted something low key, but great atmosphere and great food. Our server "T" was knowledgeable and energetic. The food was great- we had both the clam chowder and lobster bisque followed by buffalo tenders and lobster quesadilla. We will absolutely be visiting here again.

“I can recommend Seafood Shanty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2011

The view from the restaurant was great and looked right onto the harbour area. We thoroughly enjoyed the food - I had the lobster roll and my husband had calamari. Even though he asked for a starter portion it was a HUGE portion. My only complaints would be that the staff at the reception area was very unfriendly and did not seem to be very happy to be there and to serve people. The rest of our experience was very good.
