My wife, daughter and I went to Shellhammer's on 5/2/15. The first measure of any dining establishment is the hospitality expressed by the host/hostess.

We ate here last week and boy were we surprised for the good food. The place was clean and the service was excellent! They have a large sandwich menu and a full bar. Stop in you won't be disappointed.

We met some friends here and got a bunch of $5 appetizers. They were all good. The service was great and they gave us separate bills. We will go back.

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.
