I saw this on the food network last night so my husband and I drove 1 1/2 hours to check the place out. It wasn't bad, but it certainly wasn't great by any means, but the service was very good.
Before the appetizers they brought us bread

Pros: good people and good food

The Shanty is one of a kind. I arrived with my family at 7:30pm, last night, and was greated by a friendly host and was quoted a 15 minute wait. We were surprised the place was that busy and yet still got us seated quickly. While

Ok, I REALLY wanted to like this place. I see the reviews, my friend saw it on one of those local food shows. Yes it's pretty "rustic", and that can be cool, but that's when the food measures up to what we see posted here. I and the other

I was a little leary about even going into the building but after seeing the Shanty featured on triple D I felt that I should really give it a shot and Im glad I did. Demetrius (owner) made suggestions on what to try and he recommended

I drive from Lake Forest at least three times a week to eat at The Shanty! The food is incredible and I am a former chef so rarely do I find great food for the right price, and this place tops the rest! I'd have my last meal at The
