Relaxing setting with a view of lake Champlain. We went there for lunch and sat on the patio because we had a dog. The service was excellent and clam chowder delicious. The other dishes we ordered were average.

In town for a soccer tournament.   Go women USA in the World Cup.  Great place on the lake with a view. Hot food was served hot and oysters on the half shell are chilled. Not an extensive wine list but there is something for everybody. Staff is very pleasant. Thank you Michaela. Recommend for any age.

My server, Liam, was great! He checked in with me often and I felt well taken care of. He was able to suggest a dish that was perfect for me! I had the Lazy Lobster Dinner and it was delicious. I will definitely be back.

My annual trip from Philadelphia to Vermont with dinner at the Shanty on May 22 found a new deck with 23 new outdoor tables with fantastic views of the flooded Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks.

If I could give more stars I would! Located on the shore with fantastic views and newly redecorated with a well stocked bar this restaurant has it all. The clam chowder is the best I've ever had!! The shrimp and clams were lightly breaded so their flavors weren't hidden and were plump and delicious. Same with the large haddock file ... read more

The deck view of the lake was fantastic. The service was great as well. However the fried schrimp, clams, and haddock not so good. It was dry as if in the freezer too long.

This is a nice place to visit whether you're alone, a couple, with friends or a family. The staff is friendly and very attentive. The view of Lake Champlain?

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.

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.

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 google.com - 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
