We chose the Shannon Rose based on TripAdvisor reviews. It was busy, but we were seated right away. Both of us enjoyed a drink before dinner - a varied menu of creative options! We both chose the pot pie and shared an apple tart dessert. It was all delicious. The service was a little slow and the couches could use... More

Outstanding newer restaurant, a few years old and a huge menu to select from. The is always presented nicely and has always been excellent. They used to have valet parking which I found annoying, but have since done away with that. Great place to eat and always busy. Huge bar area, neat and clean restaurant very friendly wait staff.

Have been here numerous times for beers, but stopped for lunch recently. The beer selection is less than I'd expect for this type of place, but the service is always very good. I was very pleasantly surprised by the food. Everything had great flavor, was properly prepared, and came out quickly. I'll definitely be back.

The server was very attentive without being pushy. My side salad was cold and had delicious croutons and sparingly dressed, i.e. not soggy. The Shepherd's pie was simply delicious and accompanied by some warm Irish soda bread with soft butter. Coffee was freshly made. Started with unsweetened ice tea that was just right. Absolutely NO room for dessert -- another... More

Bar scene is what is this place all about, after it first opened and you couldn't find a spot, people realized that the food is nothing like other local establishments. Appetizers average at best, main courses not worth the visit.

Went for the first time for lunch. Service was a smidge slow, tough getting additional drinks, but overall very nice. The grilled Caesar salad was fabulous! Nice setting for lunch, great atmosphere.

We went to this venue for St. Patrick's Day dinner. The place was full to capacity, with valet parking, and a long waiting list to get in. Figured it must be worth waiting for, if so many people decided to wait. It was worth it. A lively young group place Irish music, the crowd was singing with them, and all... More

We took my son out to lunch while visiting him at school. Not wanting to go to the diner on rte 17 again we decided to try Shannon Rose and glad we did. The restaurant has the feel of an Irish pub. The menu has typical pub fare, traditional Irish bar food and a great selection of vegetarian options. A... More
