Went here before St. Patrick's
Went here before St. Patrick's Day and they were ramping up! Had the corned beef and cabbage soup - absolutely DELICIOUS. All our food was good, service attentive and professional and the REALLY VIBRANT bar scene added to the festive weekend.

We came to Shandon Court for a birthday party on the eve of St Patty's Day-it was a bit loud (one party) but understandable given the festive mood. Our server, Ryan, wad delightful; he was warm, friendly and very knowledgable on the menu, how food is cooked and served etc... One in our party ordered Sheppard's Pie which she thought was okay but all other meals were great; I had the short ribs-thought they were outstanding. I really felt wait staff were on top of their game-that right of amount of being there without being intrusive; It was a great dining experience.

The food was outstanding!!
The food was outstanding!! The menu was a bit limited b/c it was a special holiday menu (so many of the items we had hoped to order were not on the menu). Some prices were also marked up b/c of the holiday -- I ordered a drink that was marked $10 on the menu, but showed up at as $12 on my bill. I didn't question it b/c it was so busy we just wanted to pay and get going. Overall, however the food was PHENOMENAL and the atmosphere was wonderful. They had live music and it was kid friendly. We plan to go back soon.

The staff was fantastic. They set up a table for gifts for the baby shower. They were attentive and polite. We unexpectedly had a toddler with the group and they were wonderful and friendly and supportive. The staff that served us and set up the tables deserve many kudos. We will definitely use Shandon Court in the future!!

Good food but Slow service
Our reservation was for 5:30 pm, we didn't get served, even bread, until 6:15 pm. We got our appetizer about 6:40pm and our meal at 7 pm. At 7:15 pm we told the waitress that we needed to have our dessert and check by 7:30pm. She brought out tea but dessert didn't come to 7:40pm. At that point we again reminded her that we needed the check. The check was brought at 7:50pm. We had to pay cash because we couldn't wait any longer. We left the restaurant about 7:50. We had to race to our show.
So, other than the fact that the service was extremely slow the food was very good. I noticed a large party in the back and another in the front, where we were sitting. Maybe, this restaurant can't handle other patrons when they have large parties.

Shandon Court is one of my husband's favorite restaurants. Although it was Father's Day we were greeted and seated immediately. The food was served at a good pace and tasted very good. Service was prompt and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a good meal at a reasonable price.

Fun, fun, fun
Fine food, fabulous service. One of my all time favorites. Be sure to find out in advance, however, if the band is going to be loud.

Shandon Court is a local family
Shandon Court is a local family owned restaurant - Geryy Finlay has sung the opening to NYC's St Pat's day parade more times than anyone I recall. Gerry or other terrific entertainers are there nightly - wonderful music.
Staff are very attentive and professional and allow customers to dine in an un-hurried manner. True concern for your enjoyment is quite apparent and appreciated.
Since there is also a catering hall in the back it can sometimes be a little slow to get your meal. But if the music is playing that is all to the good.
East Islip is lucky to have such a nice and enjoyable real IRISH restaurant. Thanks Gerry and family

Celebrating Fabulous & 50!
Our dinners were outstanding as always. The lobster mac n cheese and the scallop entrée we had was so delicious, can't wait to return to for more! Friendly service and our host & waiter, Sean, was very accommodating and gracious. Singing Irish songs with Gerry Findlay on a Thursday night was even more fun.

We went for WADE JAMM
Sean waited on us. He was terrific. The wine, food and music was great. We sat outside after dinner to listen to WADE JAMM. Mother Nature cooperated with the weather. It was perfect.

I dine at Shandon Court often. Sean does a great job as a member of the wait staff. I had the scallops over spinach appetizer. They were sweet and nutty with great flavor. The marinated skirt steak was OUTSTANDING. It was cooked to perfection - medium rare, and there was plenty of it. While I drink single malts (Macallan), their selection of Irish whiskies and beers is excellent.
It's a great place to dine or relax at the bar. Dining al fresco is also available. A real gem.

We visited for Fall Restaurant Week. Everything was really really nice and they didn't skimp on the portions or the quality for the $27.95 3 course menu. Would gladly revisit and look forward to it.

Wonderdul, heartwarming experience
My husband and I went to Shandon Court last week and it was fabulous! There was a large table having a party. The owner came in with his guitar and sang her a beautiful song. It made me cry. No matter where I go there never be a more personal heartfelt experience like that. Shandon Court has a great personal touch, it takes you right back home."

Really nice Thanksgiving dinner!
Shandon Court never disappoints! The Thanksgiving menu was perfect. It was a full dining room (plus the buffet upstairs) so service was a little strained at times...not bad though. Always nice hearing Gerry play & sing!

The entire experience at our recent visit to Shandon Court on Easter was a pleasure. The staff are very attentive and professional and allow its customers to eat their dinners in an un-hurried manner. The restaurant appears to be very attentive to details as everything was done very professionally and it seemed that every time someone was needed they appeared - very nice dining experience - we will come back again soon.

A night at Shandon court
The food was great. The service was prompt . The band the Rockinghams had the bar area packed and jumping. I have eaten there a number of times and the food is always wonderful . Try the strawberry fields salad. All of their entree are great whether you are having a burger at the bar or a sit down dinner you won't be disappointed .
