Great Views, Awesome Seafood!
Terrific service, with outstanding seafood...fresh and tasty. The Steamers were a delicious treat and it was fun to share. Nice wine pairing and the clam chowder was authentic and creamy yummy! We enjoyed the view of the lake and loved sitting out on the deck!

Good ... not great
The ambiance is lovely...the meals were generally good although my shrimp scampi had over cooked pasta which made the whole dish a little mushy.

Called for the wait list, still waited 15-20 minutes. Had nice views of the sunset while waiting. Food was good, waitress seemed monotone and uninterested as she was taking our order ( saw her looking around when my date was ordering). She was polite though. Timely service for food. Decent lobster roll and shrimp scampi.

Take a LUMS restaurant from the 80s, make it seafood themed, don't refurbish or upgrade the building, bathrooms, tables, chairs, or menu for 30 years and you've got The Shanty. Dopey run down tourist trap, but it *is* the only affordable seafood place around. Dated a really cool girl who worked there for a while, so +1 star.
