I live in South Burlington and have been here several times. I've never been disappointed. I just took my parents and significant other here for dinner a week ago and we all loved it. I got the maple ginger salmon and it was fabulous! We all got something different and everyone raved about their dish. Our server was personable and at ... read more

Service was great, host was awesome. The views were awesome! The food needs a little work... Fried clam strips batter had little to no seasoning or salt. Lobster roll had shells in it which is awful, chowder was one of the best I've had, fish tacos were great. I'll return but hopefully someone takes the criticism and utilizes it!

Service not spectacular, but oh that view!
This was our 2nd visit to Shanty. The 1st visit was several years ago, so we were excited to find out they now had outdoor seating available. We used the call ahead seating on a busy Saturday night and our table was ready on the...More ... read more

I was really looking forward to eating here, the location is really nice overlooking Lake Champlain.  The food was meh (fish tacos) but their clam chowder was really good. The service was meh, a bit slow but friendly.  The local beer was tasty.Now I blame myself as much as anyone, but I never received my credit card back until I was ... read more

We came to this restaurant late and were pleasantly surprised that they were seating dinner guests until 10 pm while other local restaurants only served appetizers after 9. The decor inside is very cute and nautical. The tables features local legend, including Champ, Lake Champlain's monster. The lobster rolls were great, as well as ... read more

We went here for an early Mother's Day dinner. Being a Saturday night, it was pretty busy but we were seated immediately. The view of the docks on Lake Champlain with the sunset was beautiful. Our waitress was very good. She didn't rush us to order and brought our drinks out quickly. She refilled our drinks without even asking. Once ... read more

Still open while they're adding a wrap-around deck (which will ROCK in the summer)I had a basket of panko crusted scallops with curly fries and slaw, and it was delish. Lots of scallops - not a skimpy few.

Perfect spot to watch the sun go down. We went for nightcaps and dessert. Mousse pie + maple manhattan = perfect combination.

I had high hopes for the Shanty. It perches high above Lake Champlain with a scenic view of the lake from the dining room. The menu was interesting. With the maple tree sap running strongly as spring neared, my dining partner had a maple glazed...More ... read more

Ok food, awesome chowder though. Ordered a bowl that was really the size of a cup, not cool considering the price. Fish tasted like it was baked, not broiled as stated on the menu.

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.
