    Cinco de Mayo nachos special was so yummy! The black bean soup was too spicy for my liking. Burger/fries were amazing. Barbacoa tacos were loaded with meat and very tasty. The margaritas were a little too sweet. Had to park at the pharmacy next door. Excellent service!

    We sat near a window blocked by the handicapped parking spot right under the HVAC unit that vibrated our table. The person clearing the tables had an obvious vendetta against the job and let everyone know with each plate and fork that was tossed into the bin. Upscale mission, diner atmosphere.

    We have dined here several times and have always enjoyed it. It can be a very noisy place, so bear that in mind (great energy, but not for quiet conversation). The menu changes seasonally, which we love. The food is delicious and diverse, with decent options that are a bit more standard as well. It was extremely busy for a Thursday evening (all seats were full) and service seemed slightly delayed as a result. It was good this time, but not great like before. We will definitely return.

    Great menu selection. Our waitress Emma was wonderful. She was aware of allergies to foods and ensured the Kitchen staff was aware as well. All waitstaff were welcoming and had an upbeat attitude. Cool New England Tavern vibe, great rustic decor. Would definitely dine their again.

    The Shanty was excellent. It is a small place but you can see what they have done to minimize sound. We ended up parking next door because the lot was full but that seemed ok. Our waitress was top notch and great with recommendations. There was a new menu released which had lots of yummy options but we both ended up getting fish & chips. The food was delicious. And we split a dessert of lemon blueberry bread pudding. It was perfection. Thanks to The Shanty for a great meal!

    The food was very tasty! The server was fun, friendly and very accommodating! The noise level was a bit uncomfortable for me, but at least we didn't have to talk over loud music! The booth benches are hard on one's butt, but no tables for two were available in the back (my favorite place to sit!). Having been to The Shanty a number of times before, we knew what to expect, and because the food and service are almost always excellent, we put up with some discomfort with the seats and noise level! Overall, a very enjoyable dining experience!
