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

Disappointing
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.

I didn't remember the last time I was in a seafood restaurant with the old decorations, ie using bueys over the suspended lighting, etc. We came in the evening, as the sun was setting, the view is charming, the food was great, we went for the clam chowder, the best I ever had, fish & chips, which was quite good and the calamari, whic ... read more

The eating areas are have great views of the lake, Ask about their seasonal brews they have on tap. They do have great deals like all you can eat shrimp and all you can eat scallops for good prices.

Shanty On The Shore - Couldn't Love It 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.

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.
