We stopped today (Friday, August 31, 2012) for lunch after avoiding the Lobster Shanty for the last 3 months; we remembered a relatively poor, high priced lobster roll from last year. Today's lunch was better but still expensive.
We had lobster patty (think crab patty) sandwiches which were tasty and a change from the usual crab meat. We celebrated the holiday weekend with "Dark and Stormies" (dark rum and ginger beer).. The drinks were served with lots of ice in pint glasses, and they were great on a hot summer day.
The restaurant was about a third full, but service was very slow. Our server seemed capable of doing only one thing at a time. He clearly was never trained to look around at his customers and see if they had needs.
Overall: interesting/okay food, nice location, good drinks but indifferent service and high prices
