    My wife and I had dinner at Shannon's for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. The wine list was expansive, and the wine my wife chose (Cantina Malbec) was outstanding. The food was terrific, we started with blue point oysters, which were tasty. I had a 14 oz. strip steak with lump crab and asparagus in a bernaise topping and a small lobster tail on the side. It was cooked just about perfectly. My wife had a 8oz. filet and creamy spinach on the side, it was delicious. The place wasn't very busy on Wednesday nite, but the atmosphere was still nice. The only reason I don't give an outstanding for my overall experience is the price. We weren't holding back, and my wallet took a big hit! If the food was better it might be justifiable.

    We go to Mike Shannon's Steak & Seafood frequently. The ambiance, food and service are always outstanding. Love love love the oysters and dessert menu! In between the steaks are cooked to perfection. We like to split the Blue Cheese Potatoes Gratin. This is the perfect place to go before or after a St. Louis Cardinals game - well anytime is the perfect time.

    While visiting St. Louis, we always find an evening to dine at Mike Shannon's downtown. The steak's will compete with any steakhouse in any city and the service is superior. Extremely friendly and knowledgable staff, most of whom have been there for several years. The side dishes and steak toppings have a delicious twist. Not only is the restaurant a treat, the bar is a must for either a pre- or post-dinner drink. The bar staff is wonderful and attentive. If you are a baseball fan, you will love that the well-appointed decor is a baseball museum in itself without being tacky or sports bar-like. This is a classy place that appreciates and takes care of it's diners. Which is why we continue to go back time & time again!

    We had a party of 7, and our waiter was either overloaded with other tables or struggling to get what we needed. We waited a very long time to get drinks, appetizers came out in a reasonable time, but dinner took a long time. Food was great, just the service that was not where it needed to be for a place of this style and price

    I was a regular 5 to 6 years ago, job position changed and have not been by but occasionally since that time. Saturday night the steaks were not prepared as ordered. The medium well was medium rare to rare and the medium rare was medium well. Maybe note pads would help? Anyway, not giving up as I love the whole experience but there was a drop-off Saturday night for some reason. Thank you.

    We love to have lunch at Mike Shannon's before Cardinal day games. We enjoy the entertaining street scene from the terrace while we enjoy a bottle of wine and great food. Our server, Lori, is friendly and knowledgeable about both the food and extensive wine list. She went the extra mile to make sure that the prime rib on my Philly cheesesteak sandwich was just the way I requested it. We will definitely keep coming back!

    Debated whether to eat here or Ruth Chris's - went with the "when in Rome" and was severely disappointed. There was no wait and the place was pretty empty but it was impossible to get service. Manager came by and picked up out beer bottles from table but did not even ask if we wanted refills in our empty glasses. Food arrived and sat on a tray by our table while it waited for our waitress to realize it was time to come back and give it to us. We had Toasted Ravioli, Filet, broccolini and a wedge. The filet we ordered medium came well done. The broccoloini was fine and the salad was fine. Ravioli was bland at best. Quite disappointing as this place is not cheap! We can say we ate there and that is it.

    We attended for the 2014 Restaurant week. We were a table of 4. I was excited to let our friends experience restaurant week. It was their first time. I was very disappointed in the food. The filet had no flavor, and the lobster bisque was very salty, not good at all. The mashed potatoes were so salty, our table could not eat them. The bread that was served prior to dinner, was so hard, I thought I was going to break a tooth. I was embarrassed to have suggested going to Mike Shannon's. I don't think we will go back.

    Took advantage of Downtown Restaurant Week and had a fabulous dinner before going to the Muny! The bruschetta appetizer was very good, and the sweet potato fries were great, sauce a bit spicy, but very good! One of us had the wedge which was very nicely put together, great taste and the other had caesar salad. The wedge takes top spot. Then for entree one of us had sirloin with creamed corn and the other a 6 oz filet with asparagus, medium temp and both done perfectly. We topped it off with a house specialty apple pie alamode that was terrific. All in all it was a perfect dinner. A cocktail, a glass of red wine and off to the Muny very happy for the experience.

    We ate here before a Cardinal fame. We ate during restaurant week. Waiter not happy we only wanted water. All food was cold, shrimp was not edible, but steaks were ok. Prime rib was tough and overdone. Waiter was ambivalent, acted like we were a bother. They don't even give you ice in their water! Restaurant location is good for a Cardinal game, but would have preferred ball park food! We will not return.

    The food was good. The vibe energetic. The service - not so much. Our server waited on us and the two tables close to us simultaneously. He'd go from our table to the next table to the next table. He'd bring out all the drinks at once (which took forever) and did the same with all the food courses. It just felt wrong...

    We have eaten at Mike Shannon's in the past and that's why we were excited to get the resturaunt week deal, but unfortunately that's where the excitement ended. My wife ordered the bruschetta, she couldn't even cut it with a knife. I broke it in half and bit off a chunk, I seriously thought I was eating rocks. We told one of the staff and his response was "oh wow" but did not offer a different one or an apology. My wife's salmon came out raw and without flavor, they did re-cook it but we all know how it comes back, torched and dry. Our salads had a funky taste to them and the serving size like a cup used for soup. My prime rib was the stringiest I've ever had. We are going to try the Shannon's in Edwardsville

    I came here a couple of years ago for downtown restaurant week and I just loved the food. The service was great, the food was delicious, and I couldn't wait to come back. This year when I went for restaurant week it didn't feel the same at all. The service was still nice but the food...not so much. It's like I was not at the same restaurant I visited before. The steak was ok, I've definitely had better. I had to put steak sauce on it to make it taste better. My corn was very gritty for cream style corn. I feel like maybe we got the short end of the stick or the rushed food because of restaurant week. Either way I'm not sure, but I know I will not be hurrying to go back any time soon.

    We were put in the bar area...probably because we were "lowly restaurant week" patrons. Perhaps the dining room would have been less loud and obnoxious. The server was nice, but overall the wait staff was inexperienced and they were really understaffed.

    Dining time: 7pm on a Tuesday. Service: Exceptionally slow and mildly apathetic. But friendly at least. Water filler guys were definitely attentive. Took 10-15 minutes after seating before drink orders were taken. And another 10 after that before drinks were delivered. The pacing between the 1st course and the 2nd was good. However the main course (two filets med-rare) seemed to take considerably longer. When the steaks arrived, mine was nearly room temp. And after it took awhile to order dessert. Food: Quality was there. The steak seemed decent, although cool. Creme Brulee was excellent. Overall I would not say it was worth the money spent. There are other places with equal quality and much more attentive service.

    Dined at Mike Shannon's wying exith two friends on a Monday evening during Downtown Restaurant Week. Everything from the ambiance to the service were top-notch. Our steaks were prepared exactly as we had ordered them and quite flavorful. Portion sizes were just right. We loved the spicy ketchup that came with the sweet potato fries and Mike's house-made steak sauce. My guests swooned over the bleu cheese dressing that accompanied the wedge salad. Our friendly and attentive server recommended the apple pie, and it did not disappoint. Very satisfying experience overall. Mike Shannon's can help you make a good impression on a date or an out-of-town guest.

    My wife and I decided to revisit Mike Shannon's during the downtown restaurant week. We had been once long ago and everything was very good, but also everything was al-a-carte and portions large. We were hesitant, because the menu was 3 courses prix fixed. Not the price, but the amount of food. Everything, I repeat, everything was wonderful. Just the right amount of food, price was great, service was timely and not intrusive, food was exceptional. A very fun night for 2 weight watching adults.

    I took my mom to Mike Shannon's for her 85th Birthday as a special treat and it was everything I hoped it would be. Service, food, atmosphere are always consistently excellent. We went for "Downtown Restaurant Week" which offered a Prix Fixe Menu of three courses, with a wide variety of choice for each course. We each had the 6oz filet which was seasoned and cooked PERFECTLY. I'm grateful Shannon's participates in DRW each year because we always chose, because of their food and service.

    We enjoyed our meal at Mike Shannon's on a night when Cardinals were out of town, so it was fairly calm. The service was excellent and the steaks & sides were fine, if a bit overpriced. We opted to sit in the bar, which was very nice. Enjoyed looking at all the mementos and pictures.
