The food was fantastic!! Good serving size and great service. This is not a 5 star restaurant but the food definitely makes up for a white table cloth and a few candles. I will visit every time I'm in the area. Great food and service.

We have gone twice to the Lobster Shanty for the Sunday special. It is well worth the $20 price tag. Once, we got the complete lobster dinner. The next time, they had run out of lobster, having already served over 90 that day ( according...More

Finally got a chance to try LobsterShanty tonight. Glad we did. From the outside it looks like nothing much, could def use a paint job or new siding. But the inside was very appealing. We went early, about 530, and was told about a 20...More
