Shandon Court consistently delivers excellent food, service, and ambiance. The dining room is very cozy and quiet, the food is delicious, and the service is always very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend Shandon Court to anyone looking to enjoy a great meal and have nice conversation without having to deal with a noisy room.

We went there for Thanksgiving dinner. The menu had advertised a price fix for Turkey or Prime rib that was supposed to include 1st course, main course with 9 side dishes, dessert and coffee.
The Turkey and Prime Rib were served initially only the meat and an ice cream scoop of mashed potatoes. Half way through the meal we asked about the additional sides, and were brought a small plate or 2 pieces of broccoli, a few carrots and potatoes and since we only received one, I guess we were expected to share. The food itself was tasty, but for the price, a complete waste of money.
I was a little embarrassed, as I picked this restaurant. I tried to take into consideration the pandemic and shorthanded staffing a lot of places are dealing with, but it was still so disappointing.

Wonderful cool, crisp jumbo shrimp cocktail and the Prime Rib and short rib special were on point and cooked to perfection. Though very tasty, the clams casino were very little (necks). Had a warm comfy 2 top in front of the fireplace. Havent been here before for dining and was very pleasantly surprised at the ambience, it reminded me of my dining experiences with my parents back in the 70's (Not a bad thing!)
Though obviously understaffed (pandemic) we were attended to promptly and courteously. Will be back!

I’m a regular customer at Shandon court. I’ve never had a problem before. This last visit I decided to have soup & share a sandwich with my friend. Soup was good , sandwich was disappointing.
We even ordered dessert. When it was time to pay the server/manager would not accept my Groupon because we didn’t order 2 sandwiches. I was extremely disappointed. She should have mentioned when we ordered if you are using a Groupon you need to order 2 sandwiches.

It was extremely quite while we were there. For most of our meal, we the only ones eating inside; other people were eating outside. When another couple was seated, they didn't seat them right next to us as is done in so many other restaurants. They were seated a number of tables away, so we both had some measure of privacy. The food was excellent as always, but the prices are on the high side. $3.50 for a glass of bar (not even Coke or Pepsi) soda with no refills! Probably the most expensive soda I ever had. The staff was very friendly & efficient.

FOOD CONSISTENTLY GOOD EVERYTIME WE GO!! Can't ask for more than that... Restaurant was short staffed, but Robert handled the entire dining room like a champ and all staff was helping out so diners didn't have any delays. Great local spot!

It’s a good neighborhood Irish restaurant that has live music in the evenings. Their service is very good - we were there last night when a big party was starting in their private room, and there was absolutely no sound coming into our dining room at all from that party! The food is reasonably priced and good. They made it through the pandemic especially since everything was shut down right before St. Patrick’s day 2020 and opened after St. Patrick’s Day 2021! I certainly will support my neighborhood restaurants before going back to Northshore & NYC restaurants! ❤️

We went during off-hours due to COVID and were happily accommodated. Tables were very well spaced, though only 3 of them were filled. Our drinks were great, as were the burgers. They were cooked exactly as requested. Fresh, crispy fries completed our meal. We would gladly return.
