Shanty On The Shore - Couldn't Love It More!
My sister and I revisited the Shanty the other night and as usual, were very pleased with the experience. The all you can eat scallop and shrimp festival was going on, so needless to say that's the meal I opted for, much to my delight....More ... read more

For Vermont it's alright seafood. The owner really hates locals because they catch him at making up a Municipal tax on meals. You can go across the lake and get better , or just go to Florida and get the real thing.

Went for the Thursday " Buck a shuck" night. They had three different oyster varieties, all delicious. Had the fried oysters and shrimp for a main. It was good, cooked perfectly, but it could have used something more, but I'm not sure what. Add in $3.00 drafts and you've got a great meal.

I've been here twice, I feel like I always come away feeling a little disappointed. For whatever reason they don't seem to have the items on the menu that I'm hoping for in a seafood restaurant, but the food that is there is pretty darn good. The wait staff was very attentive to her needs, but we were also the only party of any size ... read more

Came in as part of a group of 10 people on a Saturday. Sure, we had to wait a bit to get seated, but it was absolutely worth it. Food was excellent and service was up to the task. Too bad none of us live in the area.

Went for dinner at Shanty's. Very good and fresh oysters. A lot of fried stuff, you want to be hungry and thin to choose those. Good clam chowder too.

Really loved this little gem. I sat on the second floor and had an outstanding view of the water as the sun went down, that alone made it worth the trip. My server Maggie was friendly and attentive, she made some great suggestions for my meal (I had the salmon) and I appreciated her great sense of humor.

This restaurant has great soup and both fried and broiled fish and shellfish. Laura, our server, was extremely hospitable and attentive. The prices are a little high ($3 per oyster???), but it's worth it for good service, good views, and good food.
