Seafood Shanty is probably our favorite casual restaurant in Edgartown! Sit upstairs and outside on the deck overlooking Chappaquidick, the views of the harbor are stunning! On a beautiful day there is tons of sailing and boating to watch. Their lunch menu is great with a good assortment of items and always some specials. Defiantly have their famous Bloody Mary... More

This Seafood Shanty is fun. We sat outside on the upper frack, had fresh lobster, great views and well made drinks. Service was friendly and swift. Will do this again!

Love the seafood shanty. Especially love the lobster special for 19.95 which went up last week to 22.95 :( but still a deal. Usually sit upstairs but sat at bar downstairs which although no view, not as sticky. Staff is in no hurry to wait on you nor bring your food or bill, but you're on the vineyard so you... More

Love this place - we always go upstairs to the roof deck. The food is pretty good - reasonable price and lots of choices. Burgers, chowder, sushi, sandwiches, pasta, salads, and lobster....the whole spectrum. But it's not really about the food - it's the view. On a nice night - you can't beat it up there. Enjoy!

Loved the view! Food was good. Great place to people watch and watch the boats in the harbor. Enjoyed the local katama oysters.

Fried shrimp was yummy, as was the buffalo chicken strips. The Shanty Salad, while a little expensive for salad and chicken, but was very big and delicious! Don't forget the Shanty margarita and the "root beer float." Great for sitting by the water, eating, and enjoying the view!!

My wife and i had an amazing dinner here in early July. The place was buzzing but we were able to be seated right away at around 6:30pm. The upper deck was great with beautiful views of the harbor. The service was amazing, our server Gabriella was one of the best we have ever had. Table service was really good... More

We stopped in and had the good luck of being seated harbor side. My Bloody Mary was well executed and the calamari was done to perfection. Our server was pleasant and helpful.Couldn't ask for anything more.

Seven of us dined at the Seafood Shanty and were disappointed. It is designed to attract tourist and clearly does. The prices were high for the quality of the food. I would skip this restaurant next time and enjoy one of the many high quality restaurant on the island.
