Great New England style seafood with a great view of Lake Champlain and outdoor seating. It was a bit typical in styling for a sea food restaurant, but the tables were spacious and accommodating. Service was on point and fairly quick for how busy the place can get. As for food and drink, I thought that the Bloody Mary was a great a ... read more

Great food, a little pricey
The food was great and the service was timely and friendly. The menu prices are a little much for the type of foods and location of the restaurant. Worth a visit but can't eat there often because of the prices.

Shanty On the Shore was recommended to our group while we were on business travel. The restaurant has an amazing view, and had the weather been warmer, we would have loved to sit on the patio. The food was average - not amazing, but not bad. They had a good selection of seafood and everybody enjoyed their meals. The server was so nic ... read more

A good Sea Food Place
It's not easy to get good sea food in Vermont, but Shanty succeeds. Whether it be lobster, shell fish or white fish, Shanty has it going. You will need to have a reservation for dinner, but lunch has more room for you.

James Austin via - Mar 9, 2019
Shanty by the Shore's name used to be true to the place- and perhaps from a food perspective it still is - but then, around 2018, they opened a huge out door deck and this changed the whole vibe of the place from "shanty" to "chalet" or at least to an '80s era house that has been featured in a home renovation show. And this deck does ... read more

Nice ambience. The quality of the food was good but the taste of the two (out of five) fish dishes was bland. If you prefer bland food this is five stars. If you like fish prepared like in Spain, Portugal, Italy or France this is not your place.

Went on xmas eve. The Captains platter and fried shrimp dinner was wonderful. The fried calamari with banana peppers and sweet balsamic drizzle was to die for! Tried the maple whiskey cocktail that really warmed the soul. Maddie our waitress was great! Thank u Shanty for an exceptional xmas eve celebration. Merry xmas to all!

Great location, cozy ambience and amazing food! A good place to eat and experience local fare. The black bean burger is okay, but the crab cakes, jumbo shrimp, Mac&cheese are superb. The in house sauce has a unique flavour. Service is great. And the clam chowder soup is AMAZING!
