    I can’t speak for the indoor dining, but the outside dining was nice and fairly quiet. The food was awesome! It was a little slow getting the food, but worth the wait.

    Have been wanting to dine at The Shanty for some time. It did not disappoint. Our server Andrew was excellent and offered suggestions when I inquired on Cabernet choice. We went with friends and all our dinners were excellent. Very nice experience.

    Food was great. Only reason four stars is because of the wait staff and particularly the bartenders throwing plates into bus pans located between bar and dining area. This is a poor place to put this and staff was not conscious at all about how loud it is when they throw plates into it. This went on all night. Otherwise, great meal

    We had a reservation and we had indicated our preference for outdoor seating (which would be first come/first served). We were greeted warmly and offered an outside table, but warned it would be in the sun. They immediately accommodated our switch to inside. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. The food was yummy. It was my first time at The Shanty and I’m looking forward to going back very soon!

    All four of us loved our meals- the scallops were plentiful and cooked beautifully, as were the shrimp in my salad. The portion of ribs was generous. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. Great dinner!

    The Shanty has a great aesthetic and an intimate vibe. The food, taste-wise, is never a let down. After being inspired by an Instagram post to visit again, I tried the Lobster Roll I was originally drooling over. My dinner and my partners dinner was out within 15 minutes. Fresh lobster and not overdone with too much mayo, it was great, but a little small. While the food was good, the drinks were not. I was excited about a Summer Sangria special they had and was surprised that it was watered down and flavorless... literally. After being delivered the check, my waitress then asked if I liked my drink, to which I said no, as we were literally paying and leaving. Would I pay $100 for two good meals and bad drinks, where they rush you in and out within 40 mins? Probably not.

    The Shanty is a great place to have a bite whether it's lunch or dinner. The food is just terrific and the service is great. My wife and I made a reservation for brunch on Father's Day. We were seated upon arrival and the service and food was outstanding. We had another bit of good news when the bill arrived as one of our adult children called in and paid for our food as a father's day gift! We had such a nice experience. Thanks to The Shanty! We will be back!

    We dine here regularly. Never disappoints. Always delicious and the service is great. The only recommendation I would have is that clam chowder becomes a regular menu item. It’s the best.
