My fiancee had wanted to try The Shanty for some time, ever since she saw it featured on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives". So, for an early birthday gift, I took her this evening. It was, as she told me, the greatest meal she ever ate... and while I ordered something different, I have to admit this restaurant lives up to all the hype.
Make no mistake, this is not cheap eats. But you more than get your money's worth, both in terms of the quality of food served and the attention to detail every employee at this restaurant shows. Servers are constantly monitoring tables, making sure everything is to your satisfaction and refilling drinks before you can even ask them to. This is outstanding customer service.
I'm less daring in terms of my menu, so I stuck to the Shanty burger, which was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. My fiancee chose the lamb shank, and was so impressed with the presentation that she didn't want to eat it at first, because it was so pretty. When she did, though, she was amazed at how greaseless the lamb was, and that it was fall-off-the-bone tender.
Just because of cost, The Shanty isn't somewhere I'd necessarily go on a regular basis. However, for special events, they have moved to the top of my list, and they've proven beyond a doubt that you more than get what you pay for.
