Great Food In A Cozy Setting

Separated into a bar and dining area you are best to wait for a table. The bar is crowded with not much room to move the length of the room. The dining area on the other hand is larger and has a homey feel. It is always busy, but worth it every time. Favorites are the liver and onions, Ruben... read more

I had the steamed spiced shrimp. Also a small Village Garden salad. The food was very good. Shrimp were cooked just right. The salad was very good as well and quite large for a small. Service was good. The atmosphere was perfect for catching up with a good friend! Highly recommended!

Shannon’s is one of many eateries available to one traveling into Baltimore from the west and as such has taken a while to find the right opportunity to dine there. I haven’t done many reviews of late as we have been mostly eating at the places I’ve already covered. Finally, my friend and his wife stumbled into Shannon’s and offered... More

We've been to Shannon's many times. Good drinks. Half priced wines on Monday. Crab cakes are very good. Fried shrimp were overcooked. Burgers are excellent. Very friendly and good service. Fairly priced. there's a good vibe here.

Anytime we visit a restaurant for the first time, we always visit their restroom to determine the cleanliness which usually indicates their attitude when it comes to keeping the kitchen clean. This kitchen must be super clean. The food was really good! My partner ordered a burger with fries ( really good and piping hot ) and I ordered the... More

I recommended Shannon's to a business associate for us to have dinner. It was a neutral half-way meet for either of us, and I am always game to try a new place. After ordering drinks, my associate asked the server for bread. She returned to take our dinner order without bringing bread. The meal was delivered without much wait, but... More

This has become our "go to" restaurant when we don't feel like cooking. They have a fairly standard pub menu, but with specials every day to keep things interesting. All of the food is good, and the kitchen seems to know how to make each dish taste special. My favorite is a tenderloin sandwich that is paired with fries or... More

Friendly service and great cocktails. The seafood is always good and burgers are very good. We dine here often and are never disappointed with our meal. The Maryland crab soup and cream of crab soups are delicious, and the crab cakes are really flavorful. The food is also a good value.
