After one bad experience, we decided to return a number of months later. We had a good experience and are likely to return again. The food was quite decent, and the service was of good quality again. Happy hour menus are a really good buy, but there are not enough seats in the bar area - the... read more

Not a bad menu. Nothing exciting. Service is pretty slow. Almost no one there and still 15 minutes or more to get first beverage! I have preferred sitting at bar here. Funniest thing was even after I instructed our waitress who gets what she still reversed our meal! Ah well.

We go to Shannon's every Thursday evening. My wife goes for the pot roast and it is always very good. I vary my choice based on the specials. Tonight was baked shrimp wrapped in bacon over Cajun rice with a lemon butter sauce. Outstanding! Their shrimp salad platter is the best around. There is no better corned beef in the... More

Having grown up in the Baltimore area, I miss the steamed crabs, crab cakes and crab soup. So, when a "local" says "try this place" for them, I usually give it a try. The offerings here were excellent! The crab cakes were almost all crab meat, little filler. The soup was classic Maryland crab soup. Definitely will return next time... More

Food and service was excellent!! We are visiting from out of town. We found this place via Trip Advisor. Our family that live here confirmed that it is excellent and a local favorite. We truly enjoyed it.

Had lunch with a friend and enjoyed the extensive specials menu. Bison burger was delicious! Service was prompt and helpful. Pricing was reasonable and I would eat here again

I was surprised by seeing several negative reviewers posting on the site. Have been a customer here for years and I always enjoy taking folks there for the first time because of the excellent service and attention. The menu has homemade soups, salads, sandwiches and dinners. I tend to order several of the same dishes while I am there because... More

My wife and I have been to Shannon's numerous times, together, and with friends. Shannon's has a great menu, excellent food, comfortable seating, and a perfect atmosphere for dining and drinking. Reasonable prices round out the best way to describe this wonderful restaurant.

We dined at Shannons last night.....I order chicken wings and a beer. My husband order cesar salad with chicken $12.99 and a glass of wine.(he was delivered a beer) The salad was very small and we asked for a dinner roll at the cost of $.60. I have never been in a restaurant where they charge you for a roll.... More
