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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
