Love this place

The have a good variety of micro brews and most important Guiness on tap. Bar tenders seem to have tried them all so when they suggest one they know what they're talking about. Burgers are to die for.

Yummy meatloaf for dinner!! Servers were fun and atmosphere was lively! Would love it if they had a moscato on the wine list.

Always a favorite when we come to see our daughter at UD. Right across from the Towneplace Suites by Marriott as well. I had the bourbon steak which is always awesome with the mashed potatoes. Price is great for all the items and a good beer selection. Our waitress Katie was on the money all night checking on us and... More

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.

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.
