Delicious food. Enjoyed it so much we went back a second night and tried a different selection. Beer flights very good value. True Irish food! Great Service!

Visited Shannon Rose three times in the past two weeks while stopping overnight in the area. Harp-battered dill pickles are not to be missed. On different occasions my wife tried the lamb and Dublin (beef) shepherds pie and both were excellent. I had the Guinness-braised short ribs; Also excellent, as was the bourbon-glazed salmon. Had grandkids with us and the... More

Shannon Rose has good food and a good selection of beers, wines and mixed drinks. Their appetizers were pretty good. If you are looking for authentic Irish food and experience, you might be better off going somewhere. They offer a couple Irish staples, but the menu is mostly American. If you just want a good meal and good service, Shannon... More

You really don't go here for the food. It is about the atmosphere and having drinks. This place is crazy on St. Patrick's Day. They have a tent outside and there is transportation to drive you home when you get drunk.

We stopped at Shannon Rose on a Saturday afternoon for drinks and dinner. They had a couple singing Irish songs which was very good. We ordered drinks and waited forever to get them. I ordered a beer flight and a glass of water with lemon. I got the water 20 minutes after the beer and the lemon took 4 times... More

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
