We have been to the Lobster Shanty many times over the years - the most recent being August 2011 after a break of several years. Having seen some negative reviews, we were wondering whether it had changed. Not much, was the answer! It is still a very reasonable, casual and relaxed seafood restaurant - great for a good value meal at the end of a day on the beach. If you want a more high end atmosphere, then don't go here - this is a good value, unpretentious place.
Lobster is good value - whether steamed or baked with voluminous seafood stuffing; the kid's meals are fantastic value (served in a bucket that they can take to the beach next day!); and the all you can eat fish and chips is also great value. Four of us ate well, including 2 of us eating lobster, for under $100 including tip - not many places where you can do that on Cape Cod! Families are well catered for here and the kids will also enjoy looking at the lobsters in the indoor tank - actually a row-boat filled with water.
