On the porch at sunset cannot be beat! Clam chowder is some of the best I have ever eaten! The fish and chips were perfect as well.

Beautiful location. The staff is friendly but the food is just ok nothing to rave about. My biggest issue was the hornets/wasps on the outdoor deck. Ordinary food might have been elevated had my family and others on the deck not spent 1/3 of our time hoping not to be stung and swatting them away. Perhaps next season an exterminator w ... read more

So this is not fussy, but it IS fun.  The broiled haddock was meh - fairly flavorless, though well-cooked and moist.  The rice pilaf was a stand-out, as was my generously-sized Sauza margarita.  Husbie had lobster bisque - yum, and a very fresh, very tasty garden salad.  Beautiful outside deck to watch the Champlain sunset, plus grea ... read more

Good food, great view, and decent service. The dinner plates looked more impressive and full of food than the dinner platters. A little odd, but otherwise a tasty meal.

A must stop for when I travel back to Burlington! The last two times there I ordered lobster and WHOLE belly fried clams...for just myself! I miss the food terribly living in DE. Everyone wants to know down here, why anyone would want to eat whole belly clams. Oiy! Nothing compares. The staff there are always friendly and kind. I hi ... read more

Kind of Like A Good West Coast Cliffside Restaurant
Street view is unassuming and similar to something you might see on CA Hwy 1, or in Oregon. Nice inside, but great terrace view of marina and Lake Champlain. Can look down on VT Monsters HQ, "farm team" for Oakland A's. Great place to just...More ... read more

Lovely view, nice wait staff and pretty good food, mostly fried but all in all a very pleasant meal.  Nice family place, not too expensive.
Marian D. via - Aug 22, 2019
Great option for seafood when near the marina. They have a few speciality drinks to try and a great fish and chips. The view on the lake is also available from most table. Probably one of the best restaurant to walk to while waiting for the ferry.

A great place to hangout with a couple old fishermen and tell a few lies with a beer and a bowl of lobster bisque.

My experience here was excellent. The calamari was delicious, as were the fried clams and macaroni and cheese. But the family favorite was the incredible lobster bisque. We will return here the next time we're in Burlington.

We enjoyed dinner overall. The calm chowder could be thicker...but it had a great flavor. Our favorite dish was the lobster and shrimp with a mornay sauce! Oh yeah! The coleslaw was great. My kids didn't like the fried fish at all. It had a chemical taste to it. The wait-staff and view were great! We would go back if in the area. But ... read more

Went to the Shanty last Saturday night and loved their new renovation. Food was fantastic and timely.. The best part was our waitress Mia, attentive, but not overbearing. Spoke slowly and Clearly so a Senior Citizen like us coiuld undrstand.

This is the first time we had been to the Shanty since their remodeling and we like the new look. As always the food was great and timely. However, the best part was the waitress we had.

Spécialités de poissons et fruits de mers. Cependant, beaucoup de fritures au menu. Repas copieux, service courtois. Endroit agréable pour prendre une bonne bière locale avec vue splendide sur le port, situé tout près du traversier.
