Located at Bass River Marina, The Summer Shanty is the Cape's coolest waterfront bar and restaurant. This casual eatery is open seasonally for lunch and dinner.


Our menu features Dan's crazy lobster rolls, steamers, scallops, salmon, swordfish, clam chowder, Dennis Public Market burgers & more!

In addition to having Cape Cod's largest music library, we feature live entertainment Friday and Saturday from 5 to 9pm.

If you enjoy good food, great sunsets & Mid Cape's best music scene, the "Shanty" at Bass River Marina is for you!! Come by car or by boat.
