For lunch I recommend the half sandwich and have a cup of soup. Their crab soup, whether it be cream of crab or Maryland crab It’s absolutely delicious. Large chunks of crab in the soup. They have a bar section and a restaurant section.

First thing I'll say is get to the restaurant no later than 2:45pm to be able to order from the Lunch Specials. There are usually about a dozen to choose from and they are all reasonably priced generally from $9.95 to $12.95. Don't be late.

It was another typical Tuesday evening dinner at Shannon's and my wife and I enjoyed two of the Seafood Specials. Excellent Food and excellent service provided by Maddie.

Since the last time I met someone here for lunch, I have changed to a gluten free diet. I was disappointed the menu does not have more gluten free choices.

Shannon’s has plenty of menu items that are heart healthy — salmon, chicken, etc including dessert, e.g., sorbet

I have eaten at Shannon's about 6 times and I don't remember seeing a children's menu. I have never seen any children younger than teenagers.
