Stopped in for a lunch with 4 friends. It was shortly after St. Patrick's Day, so most of us had Corned Beef. The Reuben was good, but I missed the sauce, and would have liked my corned beef to have a little more flavor. There was plenty of corned beef on it, and the bread and sauerkraut were just the perfect amounts. It came with a very generous salad, that I could not finish. Others did the 1/2 corned beef or reuben and the potato and corned beef soup, and enjoyed that too. There were bangers on the menu, shepherds pie, and some traditional dishes as well. Our waitress was attentive, and food came out in a timely manner. When we finished, we were not rushed out the door, but allowed to remain in our booth and visit. There is a nice set of smaller tables over looking the street, and a roomy bar in the middle of the room. The booths offer great privacy as the sides are very high.

What a charming place with a friendly staff. Food is Pub Food. The front area is a small bar but go back and there is a covered outdoor area in the summer and a great closed in area for the winter.

Shannon's dining experience will bless you with the sense of being in the land of limerick. The food and drink are very reminiscent of Ireland and the service has been wonderful each time we have visited.

We set out to go to the Italian/Pizza place Flour + Wine across the street, and we couldn't even get in the door and were told a 90 minute wait. That wasn't an option so we went to the pub. We have eaten at the pub before. The service was slow and we waited for a while after being seated to place our order. I ordered the shrimp and chips. The shrimp were dipped in beer batter and deep fried; however some of the dough wasn't cooked thoroughly inside. My husband thought his Shepherd's Pie was decent. The food is average bar food. There isn't anything special about this place. My husband and I are used to having outstanding Irish pubs with great food back home, and this isn't it. This place will never be our first choice for food.

Have been here three times, first time really friendly waitress, second time not friendly, not great service at the bar, last visit friendly if not slightly distracted service. Food has been very good.
