“Locally world famous”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

This is a wonderful, friendly, historical tavern in Marietta. If you get to our little town beside the river, you have to visit Shank's! Meet Bob, hoist a few and enjoy the food! Wonderful atmosphere!

“Food, Fare, Friends, Pho . . . . Shanks has it all”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

If you're looking for great food, great service, great fun in a warm welcoming atmosphere then look no further than Shank's Tavern !
From Tuesday's Pho' (and open mic acoustic night), to Friday's Seafood Specials - Shank's can't be beat.

“Great Neighborhood Bar”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Being from Marietta we have made Shanks our neighborhood bar however people come from miles to enjoy the food and the friendly atmosphere. The menu features some specialties. Pho Soup on Tuesdays. Friday Sushi and the Best Crab cakes this side of Baltimore. The owner also is a advocate of craft breweries from all over the country and always has something special and different on tap for those of us that love our beer. If you are from York, Lancaster, or Harrisburg and are in the Marietta area stop in and become part of our neighborhood. Open mike night on Tuesday and Thursday, Mexican night on Wednesdays and Seafood on Friday. If you are really lucky you will get to visit when Bob Shank (owner) and John Chapman put on their Rod Stewart show. Not to be missed. See you at Shanks

“Warm, friendly, comfortable, could go on and on!!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

My Hubby and I have been going to Shank's Tavern for years and years. I have gone separately at times and feel very comfortable doing that. The food is always good and served fast. Love the price of the drinks.

We have even had a few private parties there. Our Daughter and Son-in-Law had their Wedding Reception there. We surprised my Husband for his 60th birthday. I highly recommend contacting them. You will not be disappointed.

It is definitely the place where everyone knows your name!

Tina is the best!! Love Bob Shank!
