Very good pub food!

One of my go-to's for good pub food. I actually have not had anything I didn't like and service is always good. Great for travelers as it is right off of 95. Don't let the strip shopping center fool you~~~~it's good food and good atmosphere!

Great meatloaf. If you like your meatloaf with mushrooms and gravy and garlic potatoes then this is the place to get some. It was very tasty. Would order it again.

We've been here three times in the past 12 months. Its somewhere between a bar with a lot of tables, and a restaurant with a big bar, and the crowd is a little on the younger side. But its really good. Service has been great every time, food is good, prices are appropriate. Well worth the 1/2 mile of I95... More

It's a bar and grill and meets that expectation. You get locals and travelers at the bar ( where I sat). It can be a challenge when the patrons give the TV advice on the basketball game... In any case, the food was first rate. Good chili, great wings and cold beer. I gave it 5 stars. I like this... More

Decided to give this place a try after reading other reviews. I'm glad we did. I had London broil quesadilla, it was very good. It had a lot of meat on it, rice and beans on the side were good too. My wife had the crab nachos she was very pleased with them. It was early lunch time so they... More

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. The hostess on Saturday night was not pleasant, did not give any eye contact and seemed bothered that anyone came into Shellhammer's. She threw menus and inserts together but not paired so it was just a... More

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.
