    This was our first time dining at Shamone’s. It was an experience to say the least. The dining room is very small and intimate. It was very, very dimly lit. The music was a little too loud but an awesome play list! I thought we got photos of every course and they didn’t add up to the advertised 15 courses, maybe we missed a few?? All that being said, we had a great time and enjoyed every course. We will definitely be going back again!

    15 Course Tasting Menu Dinner - Shamone is a "Must Bring Friends" when they come to the shore. Fun, Upbeat and really good Sampling Menu of 15 items. No Better value at the shore. One Seating at 7PM and that's it. Feels like a private dinner once it starts. Great staff , great viewing of the chefs once it starts. Just a great Time. Music is louder than usual, but it really drowns out the other chatter in the background and does not have you speaking any louder for your table conversation. Great relaxing pace, takes about 2 hours start to finish.

    Once again we had an awesome dining experience at Shamones. We were treated to 10 tasting plates, all different and professionally cooked and plated. Our waitress, Tori, made sure we were pleased with every course. She accurately described each plate as it was presented. Joe, the talented food preparer was conversing with us at the end of the night. We appreciated his taking the time to speak to us. Well done, Shamones.

    We thought it would be tapas like their dinner, but they were large portions. You can have as many as you want for $20. There are also alacarte items. It’s byob, and they have Bloody Mary mix for purchase, as well as juices. It is a small place but there was only another couple there, so it was quiet. Kyle gave us excellent service and suggestions. It is only high top seating…some stools with backs and some without. We will go again for brunch and try their tapas dinner as well.

    Unlimited brunch was great for $20/pp. Not buffet style, each order was made when placed. Quiche and guava spano were our fave dishes. The rest of the food was good (as you would expect from an unlimited brunch). It is BYOB so def bring your own champ for mimosas. Would be great if they offered a sample option or smaller serving sizes so you could try more dishes! Restaurant only sits around 24 ppl. Make a reservation or go early. Their website also says they are “unable to accommodate children” which makes sense given how the small space.
