The Shanty Restaurant
The Shanty offers rustic appeal with great-tasting food. It is the ideal spot for a quick midday bite or relaxing dinner with friends. Live music on the weekends ensures an entertaining experience. The Shanty's building was reconstructed in 2010 with reclaimed barn wood from the area. The restaurant was also featured on the hit show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, as well as numerous other outlets, such as Food Network's "Let's Dish", NBC's "Around Town" and ABC's "Windy City".
With an continuously evolving menu of customer-inspired dishes, The Shanty aims to please their guests. A top favorite is the whiskey shrimp appetizer, which includes fresh jumbo shrimp in The Shanty's signature Jack Daniels cream sauce. Another hit is the tequila and orange grilled salmon.

Went for oyster night! It was delicious, or server was friendly and they have taken many safety precautions. Highly recommend you try the sriracha lime oysters!!
We finally went to The Shanty for oyster night and we were not disappointed!!! We shared both Oysters Rockefeller and the raw oysters. Very fresh, very tasty. We ordered the Blackened Conch Filet and Chicken Vesuvio. Both entrees were amazing. Drinks are always good and the service from the greeter, bartenders, servers and the wait staff is impeccable. The Shanty never disappoints!
Good food, great service, really nice atmosphere. The huge trussed beams look amazing and give the new bar area a nice open feeling. 😊
Oysters Rockefeller appeared to be microwaved. Cowboy steak was cooked wrong twice. Our server was awesome.
it's always a pleasure to be at the shanty for impeccable food, ambience, and service.
Great food and great service would dine here agian
Food was wonderful, as always. Good to see that it was busy. However I asked for a table in the dining room due to the noise level in the bar. Due to our ages and hearing, it was difficult to converse
Everything was great!! We had to change our reservation time and the restaurant was very accommodating and able to help us!! The food and staff were wonderful!! The food delicious as usual we had the best service!! Love The shanty!! Their catering is amazing too
Food was good, service for dinner was good. The bar service took just a little too long but it was prime time on a Friday night so I guess to be expected.
The food and service were excellent. The menu was extensive and offered a wide variety of choices. I would highly recommend the Shanty.
Great food and drinks! Pork shanks were superb!
We had my twins 20th birthday dinner.. it was fantastic.. great steak, seafood, drinks and appetizers! Excellent service as well!
We have been at the Shanty several times and each time has been great.
The Shanty never disappoints and I felt completely safe due to distanced tables and mask wearing. Food was great and full menu!
We went there for As Wednesday and my son's comparison of O'Toole's impossible burger tasted much better than the Arugula burger offered by Shanty. Otherwise, everything else is very good.
Place has been remodeled.. very nicely done! Always great food & drinks..
Been going here forever!
A little out of the way but worth it!!
Great food, friendly staff
Always great at The Shanty! Very well run, thank you for always providing us with the very best!
Great service, place and food. The social distancing was great too.
Disappointed that there was no brunch menu. But love the place.
We had a wonderful time! We were given a quiet corner table on the original side! Very sweet of them to honor my special requests! Food was perfect! Lobster bisque, lobster tail and filet cooked to perfection!
As always a great dining experience. Excellent service, great food and friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

Very nice atmosphere, even in the scaled down Covid setting. Food was excellent and service was outstanding. Very glad The Shanty went ahead and opened as it is a restaurant many people in the are love to go to.
Awesome place drove past it a million times. Happy to have stopped in.
Delicious food, great atmosphere and safety precautions done right!
This was our first time dining at The Shanty. The service was great and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back!
Food AMAZING and services EXCELLENT. Management came to our table to ask for feedback and I thought that was a personal touch!
Everything was awesome. We’ll be back. Service was excellent.
I’m happy to support this small business.
Delicious meal with excellent service from our waiter Tyler! The food came out quickly and he was always there to refill glasses or ask if we needed anything.
Awesome food. Great service. Top notch restaurant.
Excellent food and service - the owner Dimitri is amazing!
Excellent Food!! Outstanding Service!! We had one main waitress but was served by many wait staff for bread, water, etc. Very attentive.
Food is always consistently good and staff is friendly and service oriented. I enjoy the unique cocktails as well as the broad mix of craft draft beers.
Excellent waitress and food was absolutely the best...drinks were also good!
Highly recommend. Menu is varied, with choices you won't normally find elsewhere. While also offering your typical chicken, steaks, your choice of pasta etc. Portion are large. Taste spectacular. Our service was just right, not to much checking in, not too little. If you haven't been here you need to go.
