So, we have been coming to Shanty on the Shore for a lot of years now, mostly in the winter time because in the summer we go to Maine and get our fill of delicious seafood  there. Unfortunately the seafood at Shanty always  leaves us a bit disappointed!
The batter they use is so bland and tasteless, the coleslaw is so strong with

Beautiful location, great service and very good food..but SLOW!
We stopped in for lunch on a sunny January Wednesday while waiting for our dog undergoing surgery at a nearby veterinary hospital. The place is quite pretty and overlooks the Burlington marina and Lake Champlain Ferry docks. On this beautiful clear day, the mountains of...More ... read more

Zoom in on photo to frame the lake ferry against the lake and N.Y. shore mountains . The view is great, even on a snowless winter day. Service was prompt, professional, Vermont friendly . Seafood was quite good, especially so since so far from seacoast. We had calamari, Cajun salmon sandwich, lobster roll. All very well prepared ... read more

Known for great New England clam chowder. We were surprised they did have A Bike rack to lock our bikes to.

Wasnt to impressed. My baked potato was overcooked,  the clam chowder didnt even have any clams. The swordfish was also over cooked. The only thing good on the menu was the mac & cheese. It was not that busy and we barely saw our waitress.  This has been our 2nd visit in 2 months,  We Will not go back.

Service was great, everything was brought out quickly, but we just weren't impressed by the food for the price. We both got fish and chips with mac n cheese on the side, and they just weren't great. Underseasoned, and maybe the batter could've been improved? I'm not sure, have definitely had better though. Maybe I'd try this place ag ... read more

This is a Burlington classic. It's not necessarily the most fancy joint in town but the food is fresh and prepared well every time. The views also can't be beat!

Nice casual family dining (nice sea food when served fresh). Great friendly service & mostly good food at reasonable prices. Don’t order scallops on the weekend for they may not be fresh. I learned the hard way!

First we were the last people coming in for the night, no one rushed us, and the quality was outstanding. We had both the lobster bisque and seafood chowder, they were fabulous and extremely hot. I had a lobster which was tinder, hot, and delicious. My son' s fish was scrumptious.  The staff was friendly and helpful. Definitely worth ... read more

Having had to wait to get a seating, I was getting antsy and only a nice meal would have had me comment here. I have to say, the shrimp dish I took was very flavorful and the dessert was pleasant but not too heavy. Inside is outside since its view on the lake is very pleasant while enjoying a meal.

I have eaten here four times now and I have enjoyed each visit whether it was for lunch or dinner. I think the seafood is always good and the menu has a great variety. I like how they have both fried and broiled seafood options. The clam chowder is also pretty good. Beautiful views of the lake as well!

Lucky find !! Overlooks a marina. Sunset with mountains in the background was awesome !! Best was the food. Kims Scampi was fabulous; pretty much licked the plate. My fresh oysters, cup of chowder, and lobster roll might have been the freshest I've ever had ......... wonderful. We'll be back !!!!

Clam chowder was thick creamy and tasty. We had a sunset lake view table and enjoyed the food, craft cider and the service. Worth queueing for a table.

My girlfriend and I stopped by here this evening with some friends. Spencer, the bartender, made some of the best drinks we've had during our 3 & 1/2 years in Burlington! The Bahama mama (extra Bahama) was possibly the best drink Ive ever had, and the lakeside lemonade was a close second. Food-wise the clamchowder satisfied our chowd ... read more
