Stopped here for drinks and appetizers. Had the pork potstickers, which were good. Best of all was the view.

If you want a nice lunch/dinner with a view the Seafood Shanty is the place to go! Excellent food. The manager Louis is very involved in the restaurant & his customers. Love going for lunch in the summer to watch the boats.

Resort employees and others suggested that this establishment wasn't that great. When we saw the menu and unreal view from the outdoor seating area, we gave it a try. We were not expecting gourmet dining and we didn't get it. What we did get was...More

Hi Christina, We serve lunch from 11 A.M. until 5 P.M. but almost everything you can get at lunch is also available at dinner as well. And if there is anything you see from the lunch menu that isn't on the dinner menu feel... More

I think they take reservations if you call- it might be party of 6 or more. It usually not a long wait.
