Four of us visited and we all agreed that we’d had a very good time.

We ate three different meals and all were tasty; service from our waitress was excellent and we thought it good value for money. The bonus was seeing the sun set over Lake Champlain - the view from the balcony would have been good but it was excellent with the sunset.

Four happy customers.

This very nice restaurant located in front of Lake Champlain, is specialized in seafood but the food is not up to our expectations, the staff too stilted, the old decoration and the clientele out of a house of retirement. pity, the terrace can be nice in good weather, but that's not enough ....

I have been going to Shanty on the show all of my adult life--the food is always fresh and delicious and as varied as a day at the Cape. Recently they have changed their footprint somewhat--and all to the better--someone new must have the visions for the place that I had all these years.

Sincie the place is so popular often time one had to wait for a seat--now they have a bar at the entrance and you and sit and peruse their many local craft beers while waiting for a table. They also added a wonderful outside patio and deck with THE most specitacular views of Burlington Harbor and in the distance the Adirondaks...---just breathtaking..and the only restaurant of its type to have this set up ini Burlington...

The wait staff is mostly University of Vermont Students and since that is where I teach--it is always great to see them at their work...

I try to get down there once a week or so and in the Winters take advantage of their Lobster fest; All the Shrimp you can eat and Scallop and Shrimp deals etc...oh...and I forgot their special Oyster deals...yum yum--

Always consistently good at fair prices with the added feature of Lake Champlain always being there to admire...Enjoy...

We had a very nice place overlooking the harbor. We ordered the fish platter and enjoyed the taste very much. Very attentive staff asking if everything is good. Also people who don’t like fish can find something to order. However the clear focus is on fish.
