    Fantastic time celebrating New Years Eve Ball drop with Dublin and the kids. The kids especially loved the face painting and the noise makers! We are making this our family tradition! Thank you Shannon Rose team!

    Not sure if they are extremely short staff that night but it seemed there were only three servers maybe four for the whole restaurant and one bartender so everything was at a snails pace which is not the fault of the servers they were stretched out really thin. I preferred the look of the original bar, it’s much brighter now and a bit plain. Food was okay, not much different from before the re-launch.

    It's just so far been a great place for either Happy Hour or some comfort food. They have at least 5 Irish entree's & Boxty which made me think of my mother. Great outdoor atmosphere, weather permitting.

    The Shannon Rose continues to be a favorite place especially for Happy Hour outside in the garden area. Atmosphere , food , drinks & service are outstanding. Am sure going to miss when the weather turns & will no longer be able to sit outside.

    With the living room section in the back , apparently parents feel it’s ok to allow their children to jump, roughhouse and yell while others are eating. No one at the restaurant addressed them nor stopped them. Two sets of kids took turns throughout our meal jumping and yelling ruining the birthday celebration for my daughter.

    Went for brunch, and to check out the redesigned restaurant. The new chairs and groupings are beautiful, the autumn beverage “apple pie on the rocks” was delicious! I’m gonna need them to keep this on the menu.

    Went for Mother's Day Brunch. Place had special's but the server was unaware of them. She had to go ask for "clarification" or "more information" several times. Also, we would request items, like water or ketchup, a couple times and she would forget to bring them back. After a coupe of attempts, we told my 4 year old they were out of ketchup because I didn't want to ask anymore. Food was decent at least.

    Mallory needs to learn to stop flirting and check on her customers more often. Since Ive been a server for years in the past, I understand wanting to talk with people but yesterday, she only checked in my table twice.

    Service was absolutely horrible. All night we had to look for our server and flag her down. Drinks were extremely weak or watered down. I have a very low tolerance, it usually takes me 1 to 2 drinks to get buzzed or drunk. Last night I had five and felt nothing. Drink prices also vary from bar to bar which there shouldn’t be an inconsistency like that.

    As always, the food was AMAZING. There was a band playing that night — in retrospect not that suprising given it was the day before st patty’s — which made it hard to hear. Be wary of being close-ish to the band. Main reason I have to dock stars is that our waiter straight up disappeared half way through. We had to bother other servers for things like drinks or napkins and even the cheque. He also forgot to bring stuff like drinks when he WAS paying attention :|

    I went with my sister for dinner on one of the coldest nights of the year and we were sat at the table right next to the fireplace - it was perfect! The food is great, I had the fish and chips. My sister had the grilled chicken sandwich which I tried and was one of the best chicken sandwiches either of us has ever had. The service was also fantastic, attentive but not overbearing. Highly recommend!
