This restaurant has been established here for decades. We dined here today for lunch. It was a beautiful sunny day. There were many tables outside with umbrellas for shade, or not. The service was excellent. The menu was pretty extensive, but pricey. Our food was good. I had the fish tacos $18. It had too much sauce on it, but was tasty. I would have prefered baked or grilled fish to the deep fried. The french fries were good because they were piping hot and not salty. My husband ordered the lobster roll $22. I would go back for the view and relaxed atmosphere, and temper my expectations on the food.

Service was excellent.Great choice of menu. Mainly a seafood restaurant but caters to all tastes. I had the chicken wrap which was superb. I don't know the price range as I was treated lunch.

I hadn’t been back to the Shanty since they remodeled. It is nice and outdoor seating is great. We had lunch with two fried clam plates, a planko fish sandwich and fried shrimp and scallops. All food was great. Prices are a bit high for lunch and the waiter struggled a bit but all was fine. We will return.

Went to the Shanty last Saturday night and loved their new renovation. Food was fantastic and timely.. The best part was our waitress Mia, attentive, but not overbearing. Spoke slowly and Clearly so a Senior Citizen like us coiuld undrstand.
