I had shrimp and scallop au gratin. I was disappointed I didn't think it had much flavor and tasted like they just dumped a little bit of milk in it.

Beautiful Location - Good Food - Great Service - Dog Friendly
We wanted a dog friendly restaurant in Burlington, with a view of Lake Champlain. Shanty on the Shore recently built a beautiful deck off the back of their restaurant, with beautiful umbrella tables to sit and enjoy the view of the lake. The service and...More ... read more

Seafood!
If you want lobster or oysters this is it. Lobster roll was not super large but just enough. Lobster was cooked perfectly. The clam chowder was ok. The crab cake was very good. Great service. The only drawback was, like everyone else, we wanted to...More ... read more

Yummy Food, Great View
The warm rolls and coleslaw they brought us at the beginning were so good. We asked for more of the rolls and the slaw had a zesty zing to it. We ordered the lobster bisque bread bowl of soup, fried clams, and a Cobb salad...More ... read more

Good Food, Average Overall
My boyfriend and I were in town for the day and went to the Shanty based on some online reviews and a menu that looked reasonable. While they had outdoor seating it was very humid/hot outside so we opted to sit inside near the windows...More ... read more

We visited on a Saturday night. I had called early and the hostess nicely explained their call ahead process. When we arrived, we only had to wait 10 minutes for our family of 4. They were not seating people outside at the time due to the forecast of storms, which I appreciate. Many places go ahead and maximize the outside seating an ... read more

Great drinks from the female bartender while we wait for our table. Clam chowder & lobster bisque had good flavor & were thick, not watery but hardly any actual seafood in them!

Recent Lunch at the Shanty on the Shore in Burlington, Vermont

Not the highest rated seafood place on Yelp* for Burlington VT, but one that perhaps should be. We were looking for a place to get some good seafood and there was something about this restaurant that seemed to appeal to us.Glad we went in.

Had arguably the best mac and cheese I've ever had the pleasure of consuming through my oral cavity. The burger was commendable and the jumbo shrimp along with the scallops were fresh and melted in my mouth. 10/10 would eat again.

The view upstairs overlooking the waterfront is breathtaking could have stayed there longer. The waiter was personable. Bake potato was well done, but the cod or haddock was greasy, less white fish with extra coated bread batter made the meal experience disappointed. Go for the drinks & the views, of course....

Wait time for dinner was longer than expected given I had added my name to wait list mid-afternoon.
