Great good. Price was to be expected for seafood and the view. Speaking of the view, we got to watch the sunset over the mountains and lake.

It is our family's go to place for birthdays and anniversaries. The food and service is always great. We even get my grandson to try seafood. He loved his lobster.

Awesome seafood. If you are in Vermont looking for fish, go here. Make sure to anticipate a potential wait for a seat. This place is a hot spot for a reason.

Very good seafood, especially the salmon. For the price there should have been more than 4 shrimp. Would I go again? Probably not. I can get better seafood in SC for half the cost. Also, I waited too long for check after I was finished eating.

We loved the Shanty! The food was mouthwatering and their portions perfect. They have a wide variety of fare, and we hope to come back often to sample all of it! The service is excellent.

Don't often review places, but Shanty was a nice surprise. Delicious, fresh fish tacos- fried haddock, with fresh coleslaw & pickled onions...were a treat, with perfectly cooked yellow squash/ zucchini side, seasoned with herbs de Provence, and a terrific house- made key lime pie. Very good service, casual friendly atmosphere. Thumbs ... read more

Made the mistake of ordering whole belly clam lunch basket for $20. Clams were great! All 5 1/2 of them! Very disappointed. Told the server, she responded "we hear that all the time". Would have been nice to be warned you were paying near 4 bucks a clam.

Great place by the shore of Lake Champlain, in Burlington's waterfront district. My whole belly clams were tasty, and the portion was generous. My wife, who loves haddock, said that it was the best she'd ever had. Breading was very light, and the fish was flavorful.
