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

We went to Shannon’s and my wife ordered the salmon. When the salmon arrived, it did not look so good to us and tasted awful. People at our neighboring table (whom we had been talking to) also had the similar impression. In fact, the gentleman said, “It looks like 2 to 3 day old fish that they had thrown in... More

We dine at Shannon's on a weekly basis. We can always count on a very good meal. They have nightly specials as well as sandwiches and salads. We frequently eat the fish which is prepared better than some fine seafood restaurants. The staff are great and are familiar with the "regulars". The restaurant is great for families.

We have enjoyed Brunch, lunch and dinner at Shannons many times. The food is excellent the service friendly and efficient. From hamburgers to prime rib, the food is always outstanding. Their soups are especially fine. As a couple, with friends, and with family, we have never been dissapointed.

I have been Shannon's for lunch three times over the past several months. Each time the service has been very good and the food excellent. They have some pub-type food on their lunch menu as well as daily specials. My dining companion had the soups of the day and a half sandwich twice and a full sandwich in the other... More

Shannon's calls itself an Irish pub, but it has an array of food choices including Italian! I had the Shepard's Pie, which was half lamb and half ground beef. I was a little hesitant at first to order this because I am not a big fan of lamb. But this dish was delicious! A nice balance of flavors and very... More

Wonderful food and wide selection on the menu of this local favorite. Ate there twice, I had the crab cakes and then tried the jumbo fried shrimp. My wife had the liver and onions both times. The kids loved their meals as well. The food could not have been any better. The prices were not cheap, but probably not too... More

How many places can you order French fries with gravy and not be looked at like you are crazy. Shannon's is a friendly local bar and restaurant where you can feel comfortable with family ( small children included) for lunch or dinner or friends for a beer. The service is always friendly and makes you feel at home whether its... More
