This place is popular with locals. It's consistent and reasonably priced. Good service. Food is average, American fare is what they serve. The place is small - tables are close together and there a few booths. The bar is a decent size but fills quickly with regulars. Parking is difficult, the lot is small and shared with other businesses.

Started with the best & most generous martini in town followed by sweet potato soup and entrees of pork shanks and BBQ salmon. It's not New American cuisine, just excellent traditional comfort food. Both my wife and I have become regulars for the excellent food and service at reasonable prices.

My wife and I went to Shannon's for my birthday and had another wonderful dining experience. I ordered the Oyster Platter and my wife ordered the grilled Salmon. The food was delicious as always. Our server Tammy was the best. Shannon's is Super!

Looking for crab cakes, found them here. Had the fried ones, they were very good. The French fries could have been hotter and crispier. I liked their homemade tarter sauce.

We went to Shannon's Saloon for a dinner. We ordered two of their soups, a burger, lamb leg, philly cheesesteak, and a chicken dish. We liked soups a lot. Philly cheesesteak and chicken dish were good and the burger was average. My wife did not like the lamb. Service was great and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. I have... More

Loved the menu variety and food! We went there for a casual evening meal with friends (with kids). The restaurant had appetizers, entrees, and sandwiches for every appetite. I had the french onion soup followed by crab cake sandwich. Lots of fresh crab in the cake. No one had any complaints - on the grilled chicken sandwich, tenderloin of beef... More

This is an excellent restaurant. The food is always great, and the service is exceptional! It is usually crowded around dinner time. Most of the clientele is somwhat older which often tells you that this is a very reliable place.Prices are very fair for the food quality and amount.

Have always had a consistently great meal, however on our visit on 9/11 we were asking what happened? Arrived about 6 with plenty of empty tables in the main dining room and some tables occupied in the bar. Our server was not overly excited to be there. The cheeseburger was good, the tuna sesame was so so and the chicken... More
