Awesome Establishment
Great seems not good enough for this place. Food was near perfect, the surroundings were fabulous, the staff was totally on top of everything. Couldn't ask for better of anyone.

Excellent service!  The best She Crab soup and Crab Cakes I've ever had.  Had some in VA Beach that were told were very good, but after Oyster Farm, they didn't come close.  If you're a connoisseur of She Crab and Crab Cakes you'll never find better!!!

A non-event
I'm a local . I arrived at 6:15 May 16 , 2017 with out-of-town guests , party of 4 seated in a booth . At 6:35 we walked out and had a nice , lively dinner at The Shanty . We were totally ignored for 20 minutes , not a glass of water , nothing , no sign of a waiter . The restaurant was nearly empty .

Absolutely loved the nacho appetizer and the Mahi tacos. Everything was fresh, tasted amazing, and we couldn't have asked for a better view. We loved capturing the sunset after dining and the atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed!

We were just driving north on 13 and saw the signs so decided to stop in. We weren't expecting it to be as busy as it was--multiple events going on and totally packed-- but the people were so nice, sitting outside playing some game while we waited, and the wait turned out not to be too long, so not bad at all. They even offered to (a ... read more

Perfect Occasion Dining Destination
My husband and I live in the area and choose this restaurant for special occasions or couples night out. Many delicious seafood choices but can become crowded in season so be sure to make a reservation.

Beautiful location and scenery.   Mediocre service and food value.  Waitress complained to us about having a table outside.  Our "dozen" oysters only had 11 on the plate, and were poorly shucked.   Our main meals tasted great, everything was just priced a little high to match the size and view.

Squeezed Us In for a Good Meal
Arrived on a Saturday Prom Night at 5:00; hostess graciously seated us without reservations. As of this month, they only book reservations for 6 or more. Hostess continued to check on us, server took order quickly, and food arrived as requested. Scallops were delicious and had no sand in them, flounder was a little dry. Filet was ten ... read more

Hostess with the Mostest
We were met at the entrance by a charming and fun hostess. This pleasantness continued throughout of meal with our waitress and the rest of the staff. My husband had seafood mac and cheese and I had the prime rib - both were excellent. The only negative I can say is that I thought their specialty drinks were pricey and bland.

Stopped in for a late lunch ! Soup and salads - my chef husband loved she crab - and the small taste I had was awesome! I enjoyed the ESVA clam chowder - so many clams - great flavor! Salads were fresh and tasty and the added fried oysters we perfectly done! Can't wait to go back in September.

Great View but something is missing.
As residents of the area, we usually eat here two or three time a year. I believe the restaurant has not improved since it changed owners. Previously it was called Aquas and was a bit more "upscale". It has changed to a less formal place and I don't think for the better. Our recent trip was on a Saturday night and the restaurant was ... read more

Pretentious
Hostess was snooty - and acted really put out that she had to show is to our table. The food was mediocre, the service slow.

The food is average but the view is worth the stop.Try to get there for sunset. There were very few people there but it might have been because it is still low season.
