    So Dog Friendly!

    We frequent The Shanty often with our pups. Always clean, great food and they even accommodate our pups with a fresh bowl of ice water every time! Best place ever to people watch in Salem while enjoying a lunch or dinner out with our pups.

    Don't waste your Time

    After having taken the time to thoroughly review their website and make sure they were dog friendly,my group and I eagerly searched for their location. We were excited to try out what looked to be an amazing piece of Americana. We got a bit lost walking there and when we arrived the patio was cleared but tables and chairs were still there just locked. So since you deemed them dog friendly we went to them and asked if there was anyway they could just throw down a table and chairs and we could be served. They without even giving it a thought turned us away to another establishment. So her you go friends take your money and dogs and go somewhere else. And let's not trouble them with our money or time. Leave them to the non dog owners.

    My husband and I came here with our dog to sit on the patio. The food was good and they had tables with umbrellas to help keep off the heat.
