Lobster Shanty in Hightstown closing and reopening as....

... Jack Baker's American Bar and Grill Restaurant


Hope the new one is good or better than the 'ol Lobster Shanty. Website says to check back in July 2010. That makes two new restaurants on Route 33.

  1. That means it's just a new menu with a new focus, as it was Jack Baker's Lobster Shanty.

    I was never impressed with it. Ate there two or three times over the years. Barely passable, would only go if I was starving while passing by.

    1. I hope they make it something like a Pour House in Shrewsbury. Just burgers at a local place.

        They own Moore's and Escondito's in Freehold as well, I believe this is going to be more like Moore's. Sports bar , burger type place.

          The seafood wasn't the greatest at Lobster Shanty but I do love their NE Clam Chowder. Hope that stays on the menu.
