I come here everytime I am in Burlington over the last few years....I have never been disappointed and the food is so well prepared that even my children have tried new things..... And we all know how hard that is to do...

We loved the food. Our waitress was able to fill all our requests for little changes to our dishes. Vegetables was too heavily covered with herbs but all dishes were outstanding.

On the waterfront in Burlington VT just where the ferry boards to Port Kent NY. There is upstairs and downstairs seating with great views of Lake Champlain. There is a lot directly behind so you can skip those pesky meters.  I had lobster bisque and fried clam strips. Really good clam strips.

Good food, good view. A little pricey, but not too bad.

This is a great casual spot for some delicious seafood. It's right on the water so you get great views. Service is speedy and efficient. I've tried several different dishes here and they've always been great. I recommend!

This is a restaurant with one of the nicest views along the lake.  Ask to sit up on the second floor near the window for a breathtaking view. The food here was very good and the service was friendly.  No real complaints except that the decor is a bit aged and for a higher end restaurant I was hoping for a bit more.  Even at that thou ... read more

As always...when we are in Burlington we head to the Shanty for lunch or dinner. And after visiting this restaurant for over 15 years we have never been disappointed.  Great service and wonderful food!!! They offer the best in seafood and as we are seafood lovers you cannot get better in the area.

The Shanty is our go-to place for seafood. We happily drive 50 minutes to get there, knowing we'll always get great food and great service. The fried shrimp and scallops are always lightly battered and fried perfectly. And as much as I love their crab cakes, my new favorite is the maple ginger salmon. It's rich and just sweet e ... read more

We had to wait a bit for a table near windows.  Worth it and happy to do so.  Ordered the special and a lobster.  Both were wonderful, although the rice with mine was bland. Also got the raw app, not worth the money as you get two of each.  Nice drink options and the staff very friendly.

We love the fried shrimp and scallops! Always fresh tasting with a light crispy batter. Their coleslaw is uniquely seasoned and the hard rolls are perfect. We've been eating here for years and have never been disappointed in either the food or the service.

My friend and I stopped in just for a cup of coffee to warm up with after walking along the lake on a very cold day, Even though we did not order food, the waitstaff could not have been more friendly and did not rush us out, but let us chat for an hour.
