The Lobster Shanty

Thursday through Sunday 11:30am-9pm
37310 Lighthouse Rd, Fenwick Isle, DE 19944
(302) 436-2305


Located in Selbyville, Delaware; directly off Route 54 with a magical view of the marsh.    The Twinings opened their doors for the first time in July of 2010 to an instant success.  Twining's Lobster Shanty 's secret of success is a pleasing decor, attentive staff and an interesting menu with quality ingredients.
All tables have a great view of the marsh, so you don't have to make a reservation to get a good seat!  Come join us in our funky little place where the magic begins in the marsh at 12pm!
