I went to Shannon's for lunch. This was my first visit but it definitely won't be the last. The menu was diverse and well priced. I had the soup and 1/2 sandwich combination. The crab soup was spicy but not overly so with lots of veggies and crab meat. The tuna sandwich was all white albacore and very tasty. All... More

Shannon's is always a great place to go! Go casual, go a bit more dressed. Still a pub atmosphere, but nicer! Dinner specials every night. House salad w/house dressing...the best! Excellent club. Reasonable prices, great service. I've been going there for 20 years, never a bad experience!

Generally taken over by the 75 and older crowd , especially at lunch. But the food is really fresh and the servers are really pleasant. I love the carb counter bacon cheeseburger.

Decent food, friendly service and fair price! What's not to like. Can get crowded during lunch time.

The food is always good, served warm and presented well.we have done brunch, lunch and dinner, never disappointed. You can get simple dishes to very complex dishes and the desserts are phenomenal . You can never go wrong with Brian's bread pudding or key lime pie.

We went to Shannon's for dinner. The place is modeled on an Irish pub. The bar and decor are nice. We were seated right away but the staff was slow to come over to our table. We got our drinks quickly after that but it was 30 minutes after we arrived before we got our dinners. I had the meatloaf... More

You really have to hand it to Shannon's. Always excellent food from meat loaf to chicken pot pie. Great salads and deserts. All the while keeping prices really reasonable. Great place to take the family for lunch, brunch or dinner.

We have dined at Shannon's every time we return to Ellicott City to visit old friends and neighbors and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is pleasing, and the service and food are always excellent. I usually have MD crab cakes and they were excellent as usual. My wife had the whole lobster special and was very pleased with the... More
