This is an awesome place for business dinners, meeting up with friends, service is great along with just about any entree you order. Seafood tower is always a great place to start!

The food is just fantastic. Perfectly cooked and there's an extensive wine list. The service is also fantastic and professional. The atmosphere is very nice and a great place to dress up a bit or go after work. It's expensive, but worth the money for anyone that can appreciate fine dining. I will be back.

I was not impressed with the steaks. At least we went on a Sunday night when there was a price fixed menu. The sides vegetables were hard so overall it was a waste of money

We went for their Sunday dinner. Defiantly a lot of great food. All of the food came out warm which was nice. Never came for the Sunday deal but would for sure go again. Living up north makes it a bit of a treck out of the way but totally worth it.

Waited for 30 mins past our reservation time to be seated. Waited another 10 minutes at our table for anyone to help us. Steak was cooked well but was incredibly salty. Lobster Mac and cheese side was a joke as was the French onion soup. Lobster bisque was ok. Salted caramel brulee was horrifically salty. Lemon cake dessert was actually the only thing great about the restaurant. Cafeteria-like setting made it very loud.

We went for our anniversary, it was really loud and busy. We were seated next to the access door to a private room, and a lot of people going in and out walking past our table. The music in the restaurant was way to loud. We have 3 kids, and we were looking for a quiet low key atmosphere. Didn't find it here.
My steak wasn't that great, I've had better at back yard cook outs. Although my wife's was very good. I had NY strip and she had the fillet. The sides are over priced and so is the salad, as everything is priced seperatly. ( which is fine but very steep for what you get) overall rating is good, because the service is excellent, and in a decent part of Denver.. Parking was easy.
We are happy we tried it, but won't go back as a go to for our special occasions.

I would have given this a perfect score if the service was a little better when we first arrived. We waited almost 10 minutes to have our server bring us water and a cocktail menu. Other than that, the food was amazing.

Service was really good. My bone-in ribeye was a bit stringy. Not what I expected for the price. Wine is a bit on the speedy side, meaning more than other very good restaurants.

Terrible service. Two weeks in a row I had 7pm reservations and both times we had to wait 40 minutes. And on one of these occasions after the 40 minutes the hostess said they had no table for us and shunted us to a table in the noisy bar. Once may be a bad night, but twice means this restaurant is poorly managed. It is deeply ingrained in the culture of this restaurant's employees that people with reservations should wait over half an hour to be seated. Try Del Frisco's a better restaurant that cares about its customers.

We went there for our 15th wedding anniversary. Initially, the experience was not very good, we were seated at the bar and it was loud, with very close tables. I asked if there was a table available in the dining room. The hostess was very rude and simply said, “No.”

I was surprised and asked “really?” I shook my head and went back to the table, asking
my wife if she wanted to go somewhere else

My wife didn’t want to leave, so we ordered drinks. We didn’t say anything to the waiter and we didn’t ask to see a manager. A short time later the General Manager, Mary, stopped by the table and offered to buy our drinks and move us. We thanked her and told her it was our anniversary.

She moved us to a smaller dinning area, provided us an appetizer and wonderful service for the rest of the evening.

We would gladly go back to Shannahan’s, not because they bought us a drink or an appetizer, but because someone there took the time to notice their patrons and take care of them.

Thank Mary S. For your wonderful hospitality.

Our second time to Shanahan's and it did not disappoint again. It was our late New Years dinner celebration and from the drinks, to appetizer to main entree, (not to leave out the great service!) it was fabulous. I would highly recommend this place.

My daughter chose Shanahan's to celebrate her birthday. There were 6 of us. The service was excellent and the food delicious! We were able to talk and have fun without worrying if we were bothering the people next to us. There is noise, but nothing overwhelming. Great restaurant. We will definitely go back. Even the little ones liked it!

Natalie - our table server - was AWESOME!! She really takes the time to be sure all is good with food, beverage, comfort. The bar servers are nice. However, need to be more attentive to when one is ready to order/reorder. I felt a little bit like I was at a college bar that way. Just make more eye contact with your clientele.
