This is a must visit if you like sea food. The portions are HUGE and well priced. We had the lobster bisque, garden salad, and lobster roll. This was by far the best lobster we’ve ever had! So many options on the menu just plan to share because we could barely finish all the food we ordered!

Being from the Southwest, we’re always on the lookout for some great authentic New England Seafood. Well, we had an opportunity to visit Burlington, VT for a few days on a business trip. The locals recommended Shanty on the Shore for seafood. They were spot on! We ordered carry out to take back to our hotel. We got the lobster rolls, lobster bisque and clam chowder. It was amazing! The huge portions of lobster were embedded in toasted Texas toast. So good! The chowder was excellent as well as the lobster bisque. It was without a doubt the best meal we had on our visit to Burlington. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Centrally located near Burlington’s waterfront. Great views of Lake Champlain inside or out. Short wait for a table. I loved both the clam chowder ( voted in the top 10 in the Boston Globe) and the lobster roll. It was stuffed with lobster meat with just a very small amount of mayo. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive.

We chose this restaurant from a Google search for seafood, lake views, and a 4+ star rating.
We ordered shrimp cocktail, served over ice in a white ceramic boat. Mac & cheese, baked in house. Maple ginger salmon was a huge serving. The fish and chips were the big winner. Not the frozen greasy stuff, this was a large piece of fish lightly breaded. Fries were good.
Our table was in the top floor, inside, perfect sunset views. Our waitress offered to take our photo.
So far, my favorite Burlington meal!

We were lucky enough to be seated on the back deck, providing us a perfectly amazing view of Lake Champlain at sunset. It was relaxing to sit there, even in the midst of the other diners.

We started with lobster bisque and clam chowder - both were good, but we agreed the clam chowder was definitely some of the best we've ever had. For dinner, we had the Baked Crab Cake & Jumbo Shrimp and the Seafood Platter. The seafood platter and the shrimp were wonderful, but the crab cake was a little dry. All in all, a very nice dinner ... and we loved our enthusiastic server. The conversation with her made the dinner even better.
