Our family learned about this place through friends....we've been vacationing in this area for years and never even noticed it! It's a hidden gem in the Bass River Marina...if you are in the area don't miss it!

Very limited menu, everything fried and most of the tables outside. No vegs, no rice, potatos, just fried foods.

Had a great lunch with a great friend on my first visits to the Summer Shanty in West Dennis on Cape Cod on the last Saturday in July. We sat on the deck looking out over the tables on the lawn and onto the docks, taking advantage of the shade while not losing the benefit of the continuous cooling breeze.
.
My lunch mate is a boater and was able to point out a lot of interesting happenings on the water taking place before our eyes. The food and drinks were great, too, served by excellent waitress Danielle, who I never saw as she served us from the back.
.
The most industrious worker I observed was the self-confessed oldest busboy on the Cape, Dan, owner for ten years, he told me, of the Shanty.
.
Thanks, Dan and Danielle, the D-Team, for making this both a wonderful meal and a great experience. Hope to see you here, my Trip Advisor reader, next time I am here.

The setting is fabulous, a Cape Cod marina as your backdrop how can you go wrong. Well the wait was way to long even for the summer, and the food was not anything to write home about. The Chowda was the most expensive I paid while on the cape $7.50 a bowl and came in an 8 ounce 3/4 full paper cup and was not up to Cape Cod standard. The scallop and clam combo was so greasy we couldn't finish it. But hey at least the evening sun was blinding me the whole meal. Recommendation look elsewhere.

Delicious food, reasonably priced and casual relaxing setting by the wharf on a beautiful summer evening... what more can you ask for?
