Friday night dinner at Shannon's. The staff is friendly and efficient and it wasn't too crowded. The first thing I noticed on the menu was there isn't any Irish pub food. I had the meatloaf and it was okay. The pint of Guinness quenched my thirst.

Don't be put off by the "saloon" in the name. It's a really nice local pub with really good food - not limited to just "bar food" but having a large variety - everything from soup, appetizers, sandwiches, prime rib specials, fish entrees, etc. My wife and I frequently go to Shannon's - it's a nice, local place that always...

We hadn't been to Shannon's for quite some time when we stopped in for a Saturday lunch. We sat at the bar, and the service there was great. Our bartender gave us a new cold glass each round. I had a lunch special sandwich of thin sliced prime rib in a bistro sauce with onion straws on top. My spouse... More

I went to lunch at Shannon's with my brother. I have been there several times before. The quality of the food and service is consistently good. First tip - parking at noon or 6pm is not easy. The restaurant is located in a strip shopping center on route 40 and the lot fills up. Eating off peak might help this.... More

Shannon's has a very loyal local following which is well deserved. A nice selection of specials every night in addition to a full menu. You can choose anything from a good burger, to fish, crab cakes, or steak. They also will work with you on any food allergies you may have. A favorite of mine are the frequent pork specials... More

My wife and I needed some dinner and we selected Shannon's as the place to have it. I ordered the Two Crab Cake Dinner and a coffee, and my wife got the Filet and an Irish Coffee. We of course shared everything and pigged out. Maddie provided us with excellent service.

This is what it appears to be a great local bar and restaurant. It doesn't pretend to be a fine dining establishment, but you can get a great meal here. It serves everything from burgers to steak. The meatloaf is excellent as are the hot turkey and roast beef sandwiches. It is a great place for lunch as well. The... More

Shannon's is a long time favorite of locals to gather with friends for food and drink. It's not fancy, but the food and service are good. The menu has something to please most anyone. From salads and appetizers to entrees, the portions are generous and the quality is consistently good. It's not gormet food, but it's a good value and... More
