Off season here is good - not too crowded and not real loud - so you can talk to your dinner companions - we love the soups here!! Service is always good and food choices can please pretty much our group! great sunset views too!

When in Fenwick Island, DE - there's little finer an establishment for surf-n-turf dinners than the Lobster Shanty. Just be careful when walking in, the wooden doors are too easily slam-able. Once inside, though, the service is fresh, the crowds are hopping, and the view of Assawoman Bay is next-to-none in the area. The value may be leaning towards the expensive side depending on what you order; but if you're in the mood for seafood while you're on route 54, then start with Twining's!

Located on the bay west of Fenwick Island, the Shanty is related to Nantucket’s... but much less formal... food quality is excellent in a bar-like setting...

Lobster roll was akin to Cape Cod quality...

Went for lunch and enjoyed it - we plan to bring the family/grandkids back another visit...

Group of 10, off-season, served quickly, friendly, and accurately. Everyone enjoyed the meals very much. Food was hot and cooked to the satisfaction of all. Deserts were ordered and also impressive. Good portions and appealing presentation. My first time.
Highly recommended. Jennifer, our server, was terrific.

we went on a Wednesday night about 7:30 pm and it was not very busy. we were seated immediately and waitress came right over for drink order.We ordered drinks and got them very quickly. Ordered crabby cheese fries that were very good. I got the original lobster roll that was fantastic but i will say it is very pricey.
