Shellhammer's has specials that vary by day of the week. One of the best is $6 burgers on Wednesdays (usually $10 on other days). Atmosphere is friendly and service is prompt and accurate.

My daughter and I stopped in this restaurant on a whim. It was across the street from the Ramada, where we were staying for the Fair Hill Three Day Event. Good pub style food. Good service. The food runner dropped part of my sandwich and they had to make another which took a little while. They offered a free dessert,... More

We've been here a number of times over the years. Each time we say "why don't we come more often?" The food is consistently good. The service has always been excellent. It is a bar atmosphere, with typical and upscale bar fare - that it is tasty. They have a good beer selection - don't look for bud or corona.... More

Had a get-together of 12 people here. Waitress was very good. It was happy hour and the people hanging around the bar were very loud. Our table was near the back of the room but we could still hear how loud they were up front. Food was average. Drinks were average.

We have enjoyed eating here numerous times. Food is consistent, service is good and is clearly a local place. Nice bar with TVs. Wed has $5.00 hamburgers - get there before 6:00. Will return if in area.

There could be excellent fine dining here, i go for the pub atmosphere. They have a beautiful dining room, but so far i have been alone so i sit at the bar. The staff is friendly and attentive, but not over powering. If you need something, they are there,but if you choose to read or watch tv, they are in... More

Reviewed Shellhammer's two years ago with high marks BUT with the recent dissolution of the Shemp Group (ownership group), the quality of the food has taken a significant drop. Been there twice in the past two months. Both times to food quality was poor - mostly because it was so consistently good in the past. Burgers now from a small,... More
