Mike Shannon's Steaks and Seafood is an upscale American restaurant located in St. Louis, Missouri. With its sports paraphernalia and televisions, this restaurant is very much a place for St. Louis Cardinals fans. Several items on the menu are named after famous figures, moments and landmarks in Cardinals history. The stars of the menu are the a la carte meats, which include an 18-ounce bone-in rib eye and a 16-ounce prime rib, among many other choice cuts. Guests can then opt to improve their steak by selecting one of several add-ons, such as the Au Poivre, which adds a peppercorn crust with a peppercorn brandy cream sauce. In addition to the steaks, Mike Shannon's also has several fresh-caught fish options, juicy burgers and satisfying roast chicken platters.
My wife and I had dinner reservations for 8:15, they told us it would be a 20 minute wait,which turned into 30-45. Requested romantic setting, and when finally seated, we were placed at a table off the kitchen by the bar with numerous patrons standing around. No one ever came to wait on us,and all we experienced was rudeness and inconsiderate hostess. Once we were fed up,ands we exited the restaurant, we see of the dining room 2 empty tables that we had initially had requested. Glad that they are closing because otherwise, I would never patronize that business ever again and would never recommend to anyone. The treatment of non-European patrons are not appreciated or respected.
We went to celebrate my son's 28th birthday. The beer was warm and the food was barely warm and overpriced. We have been there on several occasions in the past and enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. But this was an extremely disappointing experience. We even told our waiter that the beer was warm and switched brands but the next round was just as warm and we couldn't even finish it. It's not hard when you serve a beer to feel the bottle and note that it isn't cold. Even if it wasn't closing - with this experience - I would not recommend it to anyone, nor would we go back.
The steaks , baked potatoes and soup were like warm. Service was very slow. The only thing which was quick was the bill
Mike Shannon's has been my favorite dining establishment for MANY years. We extrememly enjoyed our last lunch ever at Mike Shannon's!!!!! We have always enjoyed our dining experiences very much and this was no exception! Delicious food and fantastic service as always. So sad to see them leave the downtown area, but now we will have to visit the Edwardsville location instead. Thanks for all the memories Mike Shannon's!!!!! You will be truly missed.
Had the most delectable medium rare 8 oz filet EVER!
Wonderful food in a great atmosphere. Always a delight.
This was my first and unfortunately last visit to the restaurant since it is closing January 30th. But my experience was phenomenal. Mike Shannon himself was there having dinner and went to each table and spent time with the diners. He couldn't have been more hospitable. He made everyone feel welcome and treated them as friends. The service was also on point and the food was outstanding. I tried various side dishes and a salad but I can't pick my favorite since it was all so good. And the atmosphere is great for anyone but especially if you're a St. Louis Cardinal's fan, or just a baseball fan in general. My family and I will definitely be visiting the 2 other locations in the St. Louis area where Mike Shannon has restaurants.
We had an excellent dining experience. Great food, great waiter, great atmosphere! Very sorry to hear the restaurant is closing. That will be a sad day
for the city :(
I had some people in town for a business meeting. We had dinner at Mike Shannon's before the Blue's game. Great food and great service! Would highly recommend Shannon's for a business meeting or a dinner with family or friends.
My husband wanted to dine out for New Years and we chose Mike Shannon's....I'm so glad we did. We sat in an enclosed booth and were able to quietly enjoy our meal and each other....plus the room added an extra bit of romance!! Our server Joe was AWESOME and provided us with excellent service! I hadn't been to Shannon's in a while, but we could not have made a better choice.
Family gathering the day after Christmas. Wasn't busy, excellent service and a great time. The guy refilling water had a tough time actually getting water in the glass, made for comedy relief.
The prime rib was goid the chicken was dry enough and so overcooked it could have been jerky. It was supposed to be a half chicken and was only a quarter.
We had a marvelous dinner at Shannon's from start to finish. We took friends who had never been there, and they were thrilled. Anthony was our waiter and did an outstanding job. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list and his recommendations were impeccable. The food was served just as we ordered and was EXCELLENT. Dessert was a real treat. We were fortunate to be seated at a table that afforded a beautiful view of the nighttime St. Louis downtown area. If you can't have a wonderful time at Shannon's, you can't anywhere.
Waiter & staff was extremely friendly. They took time to have conversation with us. It was special anniversary night
Aside from superb dinner, having a great host is what makes me enjoy a restaurant and makes the dining experience memorable. Shannon's offered both and I enjoyed dining here. It was walking distance (6 blocks) from our downtown hotel so we enjoyed the walk back after fulfilling our hunger.
Food was real bad do not eat here better restaurants
Great service, good food but a bit speedy. Food was quite tasty but filets were just a touch ove cooked. Great ambiance for a sports fans birthday party. Cajun ribeye was outstanding
My roasted chicken was unedible. Steaks were mediocre. Service was great. But, I will never recommend this restaurant and will not be returning.
When I am spend that much money for a steak it should at least be warm after the 3rd try.
We stopped here to eat prior to the Blues game, not really knowing what to expect. We had a few beers at the bar and the timing was just right. It was happy hour! Nothing better than a ice cold Budweiser at a good price!
After a few beers we were seated and treated well. The steak was awesome! The best steak I've had in a long time.
The food came out in a timely manner and we had plenty of time to enjoy the steak and get to the Blues game in time to get the beer stein they were giving away. Which was also awesome!
I will making a return trip back!
