Food is excellent. After tasting the tenderloin (so tender and perfectly cooked), I've even ordered it instead of the lobster on lobster night. The staff is the best around. They really care about customers and treat us as family. Usually run in to friends while...More

Service relatively prompt and efficient. Salmon was properly baked. Asparagus = just right not at all stringy. General setting = very busy - noise level = OK.

For lunch I recommend the half sandwich and have a cup of soup. Their crab soup, whether it be cream of crab or Maryland crab It’s absolutely delicious. Large chunks of crab in the soup. They have a bar section and a restaurant section.

First thing I'll say is get to the restaurant no later than 2:45pm to be able to order from the Lunch Specials. There are usually about a dozen to choose from and they are all reasonably priced generally from $9.95 to $12.95. Don't be late.

It was another typical Tuesday evening dinner at Shannon's and my wife and I enjoyed two of the Seafood Specials. Excellent Food and excellent service provided by Maddie.

I have eaten at Shannon's about 6 times and I don't remember seeing a children's menu. I have never seen any children younger than teenagers.
