Great food , great service , parking was a little tight
Wonderful experience for my family. Drove an hour from Princeton just to visit this family favorite again. Seafood was amazing—shrimp, mussels, clams were so fresh that we were left smiling as we drove back to Princeton.
Lobster Shanty is our favorite restaurant in Point Pleasant. We ordered the Scallops special - something my husband didnt have in a long time and they were served on a shell and perfect! Surprised no Lobster on the Restaurant Week menu. Key Lime pie is our favorite here.
Excellent service and food
Gabby our server is the best and every part of the experience was exceptional. Don't change a thing we will be back. This will be our new haunt.
Food was delicious. Will be going there for thanksgiving dinner
First of all the music was horrible. I work all week and want to speak to my dinner companion
and I am hearing blaring electric guitar. How about trying smooth jazz, chill music.
Second....what made the old Lobster Shanty good is all gone. No more table service, bananas foster.
The decor is horrible. I guess this is a banquet hall primarily now...because the restaurant was empty.
Very nice place great food
Loved it here ! Food was amazing and so was the staff! Having my bridal shower there next year!
Wonderful dining experience, polite and attentive service, great tasting food
There was a wedding going on main ball room with the music being very loud . I would avoid this restaurant if there is a wedding in progress. Food was only fair
Great service, delicious meal!
Was not happy with the service . Our waitress was super old and she kept forgetting things and another waitress got our drinks. Not very classy at all the only thing that was great was the view . Your food is not at all top notched wish I had a better experience with my wife.
The food is delicious & our server, Emily, was wonderful, Attentive and friendly. Receptionist honored my request for a table by the window. This was our second time there and will continue to go back.
Lobster was over cooked but the corn was good. Had to keep asking the waitress for bread. It was just OK
Excellent experience; Natasha was lovely and we truly enjoyed our dinner experience.
Friday evening date night. Looking forward to dinner on the water. Menu choices made it tough to decide. Seafood sampler platters were very tasty!
We had a wonderful experience at the Lobster Shanty. I cannot say enough great things about it. Our server was fabulous, food was amazing, and some beautiful views. It was a great way to close out the summer for us!
Has not let us down. Food, service and atmosphere were super. Our server Ryan was pleasant and on top of things.
Great food, great service, welcoming staff, reasonable prices, easy reservations
Fantastic views, service, and food! The other customers were a little annoying, to no fault of the restaurant. A definite must for dinner whenever we hit the Jersey shore.
Met with childhood friends we had not seen in years. They came from out of state and we were concerned as where we could go for a quiet dinner where we could enjoy their company. We live locally and rarely go out during the summer months because of the hectic vacationers. We found tonight to be pleasant much to our surprise and the food excellent as usual. The service was superior. We were glad to be able to make a reservation too.
Understaffed, food was adequate. My wife enjoyed her lobster dish, my breaded shrimp was ok, nothing to rave about. Seemed to cater more towards seniors and families.
Scallops and Ahi Tuna perfectly prepared. Beautiful view.
We were in the mood for lobster & got delicious lobster dinners here for sure! And our server, Linda, was wonderful too.
Requested a window seat on my reservation & we were accommodated by the restaurant. Will definitely go back there!
Two friends and I enjoyed our dinner this evening they both had lobsters and I had twin lobster tails we were all very pleased with our meal. The waitress was extremely accommodating and my friends were very pleasantly surprised they had not been there before.
We drove around looking for parking and then realized there was free valet parking. Our request for a table by the water was honored. Our waitress was quite attentive and the food was delicious.
2 lb Lobster and King Crab dinners were excellent. Oysters and Caprese salad as well. Bananas foster to end the meal. Great table by the window in the water.
Only drawback was the service was lacking. Very slow and no one bussed the table fron apps to entree.
All In All we wrote it off but would have been 5 stars if the service acceptable.
As always the food was delicious, & Maddie was a terrific server. Beautiful day and we had a beautiful view!!
Lovely view of the bay. Server was efficient and friendly. Citrus calamari was outstanding! Bread and fried bread - delish, as were our meals. Blueberry cobbler definitely worth mentioning.
Lobster Shanty dinner was a pleasant and enjoyable time. Sitting at a window seat was the icing on the cake. Our server Ariell was pleasant, knowledgeable and checked often to make sure everything was fine. We will continue the dine here in the future.
Our server Janice was amazing. She was on point and did a great job will come back because of her. Menu was expansive considering how the owners of LS have destroyed the Cabins specials menu Was surprised by how great the food was
This was my first visit to this restaurant. It had an old feel. Could definitely use a renovation. Even the staff attire was dated.
Food was good location was really good.
Great spot. I requested a table by the water and we had a perfect view. Food and service were both outstanding which made for a very enjoyable evening.
Excellent dinner and atmosphere.
Terrible. Catering food. Nothing fresh. Sampler platter was gross. Frozen seafood. Broiled was more like boiled. Brought out appetizer and soup at the same time. Coconut shrimp not freshly made. Soup from a can.
It was 103 degrees outside and our A/C was not functioning well, so we opted for dinner reservations and letting the evening cool while ww dined. We ordered cocktails and our favorite JB appetizer, Citrus Calamari. So good to relax over a nice meal! Our entrees, Salmon (with garlic spinach) and Scallops Over Risotto, were perfectly prepared and soooo tasty. Our waitress was friendly, absolutely knew the menu, and stopped by our table often to check on us. The best thing I can say is that there was a wedding event in the next room, but the kitchen was not stressed and treated the patrons in the dining room with gorgeous, timely-dispatched, delicious food. Bravo!
I love everything about this restaurant. One of my favorites on the Shore. Excellent food, view and ambiance.
