If you are staying in edgartown and looking for a good place for dinner look no further. It is a causal place and family friendly. The have lobster rolls, platters, and full lobsters. I wouldn't go expecting a fancy meal but if you are looking for more low key with a good vibe this is the place.

The Friolator: the epidemic continues. With two exceptions (Lobster and Cod), everything is frozen, previously prepared, breaded, thawed, and mostly fried. Seafood Shanty is a very efficient, very friendly family type restaurant. It can be very crowded and noisy. Be certain to ask what is fresh. The Cod was delicious. The place is extremely expensive. You will not leave here without spending at least $40. per person.

While visiting Edgartown, just walking the main street area, I noticed the Seafood Shanty a little set back from the sidewalk near the waterfront area. It looked cute and had a menu posted outside.

The menu had a variety of items from seafood, salads, sandwiches and a few assorted dishes as well as specials. The restaurant also services sushi made to order, a real bonus if you like fresh sushi.

Service was quick although we stopped around 11:30am and when leaving we noticed that there was a wait for seating. That is always a good sign of great food.

Our waiter, Jake, was prompt and friendly. He checked on our food as well as kept our drinks full. Nice little children's menu as well.

Prices were not too bad, typically for the area but not excessive.

We enjoyed the grilled chicken sandwich, fish and chips and child's grilled cheese sandwich. Lots and lots of really great fries too!

Recommend if you are in the and ask for window seating. We sat in the mid section and it was nice but the views are blocked.

Nothing is fresh. The taste is below par. Only thing good is the view. Don't believe the hype. You will come out better making yourself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

We're sorry we didn't reach your expectations. We will certainly consider adding peanut butter and jelly as an option to our menu.
