“Very good neighborhood joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I grew up in Orlando but now live in North Carolina. My family still lives in Orlando and whenever my husband and I visit this is one of the first places we go. I've never been there for breakfast or dinner but lunch is a favorite meeting spot for my family and about 10 of their friends (of a similar age).

The food is terrific and quickly served and the prices are very reasonable. They have daily specials for around $6. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I always get a gift certificate for my family when we go.

They don't take credit cards (at least yet) and they don't have liquor, but the tea is good and the beverages are self serve so it's all you care to drink.

It is a great local spot!

“Surprisingly good at very reasonable prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

We drove about 10 miles to try this place in not a very prosperous looking part of town. You order at the counter, get your own drinks, and find a table. Not a very fancy atmosphere, but very good breakfast! Eggs done just right and really good bacon! My hubby had the bacon, egg, cheese on a bun and thought it was very good!

“Exactly what you hope a neighborhood restaurant would be.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

Shannon's is a refreshing reminder of how nice it can be to enjoy an owner-operated restaurant. It gets 5 stars from me on every category because it so fully achieves its goals and expectations as a neighborhood restaurant. The owners are a father and son who keep and eye on everything as they oversee the kitchen with views throughout the restaurant.

The menu is classic diner/lunch counter with a lot of options. Great burgers and sandwiches, fish and chips, etc. Everything is priced very reasonably and comes out quickly. The staff are friendly and prompt with service.

The decor is fun with license plates, school pennants and a canoe. Very homey.

It is well worth your visit, especially if you live in the area. It is your neighborhood spot. Tables can be tough to get during rush times but turnover fairly quickly.

“Just a great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

This is a most reliable local restaurant. Not fancy but a perfect price point. Mr. Shannon is a good guy with a great little place. Great for breakfast, lunch or supper! A perfect place for the family to meet and eat. No beer or wine, so if u r looking for that, this is not your spot!

“A local favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

First, let me say that this is a true diner! Mismatched tables and chairs, memorabilia on the walls, locals greeting each other. We've had the opportunity to eat at Shannon's twice in the last couple of weeks - once for breakfast and once for dinner.

Breakfast was very good. Eggs cooked to order, fluffy pancakes with add-ins of your choice. Dinner was excellent as well. We went on a Saturday night, and the Saturday special is prime rib cooked to order, two sides, roll, and drink. Our meat was cooked perfectly, was tender, and seasoned well. A very enjoyable dinner.

You can't beat the prices. Even the most expensive special (and yes, that is the prime rib) was under ten bucks. The staff are friendly, and the atmosphere is definitely "down home". My kind of place!

We haven't had dessert there yet, but we did take home some peanut butter cookies. Homemade. Amazing.

We will definitely return to Shannon's; in fact, it is fast becoming one of our favorite restaurants!
