Salad Bar is excellent. The atmosphere is relaxing. Enjoy eating here. Place we bring co-workers from out of town.

One of the worst meals I ever had. Terrible service and everything tasted like it was from the can.

Gotta agree with everyone else. This place is grotesquely overpriced. The quality and portions do not live up to the price. And the service is terrible!

Terrible service and mediocre food. Waiter looked directly at my empty drink and walked away. Vegetables for my dinner entree was a half cob of corn and two boiled potatoes. I can get this at Denny's.

The place was filthy. Called the owner to complain and he could have cared less.

Wouldn't recommend either. The food was not as expected. Shrimp appetizer not what I expected. Shrimp was not properly prepped (cleaned) and sauce tasted like it came out of a jar. I agree about the bathroom comments. I too expressed my concern with the host. He seemed to care but hadn't been back in the bathroom to see if things changed. All in all, for the price, in Allentown, I would definitely NOT recommend it!!

I have to agree with everyone else. We waited for 45 minutes for cold food and our server told us it was b/c the regular cook was on vacation. The vegetables served with our meal were cold. Complained to manager and she appeared to be unaware of the problems. Not managed well.

I ate at the Shanty with 5 others. We had a great time and food was great. Prices unreal, service was good. The new owner seems to be doing a great job. Thanks.
