We are new to the area and just stumbled upon The Shannon Rose, great find. They had live music, the Spicy Marguerita was fantastic and so was the food. We have it on our list for St Patrick's Day.

The people were nice as well as the ambiance. However...the planko chicken and spinach entree was awful. The cook did not drain the water from the spinach and what was supposed to be crispy chicken was soggy after a couple of minutes. The veggie burger was pretty bad as well and the corned beef on the rueben was far over cooked. I barely touched my meal and the waitress did not see at all concerned about it. We will not return nor recommend.

Beautiful day outside. Very quiet because of the holiday but the Irish soda bread French toast and the Shannon Rose bloody Mary made it even better. My server suggested a another drink afterwards which was made with the Apple cider, it was delicious like dessert.

Three of us enjoyed a pre-movie Sunday lunch on the patio. The drinks were well made, especially the mint julep. The bar does NOT stock Campari, my first choice. The variety of food offered was impressive, with good vegan or gluten-free option. I recommend Shannon Rose and am looking forward to returning soon.

We were a party of 8, and early for our reservation, but they had no problem seating us. The menu has many creative and delicious selections. We ordered several appetizers, among them was the Provolone Crisps which were a big hit. Our waiter was very friendly, however not as attentive as I would have expected as he seemed distracted with the other staff members. Despite some lapses in beverage refills, and a missing en·trée the experience was very good and we all had a great time. We will definitely return.

My party of five on May 11 had a good time at the Shannon Rose . The two concerns that I have though are first the noise level before the band went on . It was extremely difficult to hold a conversation even with someone who was sitting right next to me . Second after the food was served service declined and the waitress was hard to find she probably could’ve used more help . Also when we sat down we received menus but there was no water on the table and no silverware set up .

I'll rate my first time at Shannon Rose as good. The service was the highest, the waiter was attentive and nice with us. The food was Ok, not considering I found a hair in the middle of my cauliflower steak. The beer menu is great, but, most of the items are out of stock, we were only able to have our beer after our fourth choice ;)
I'll give another try since they have live music and I would like to see the bands playing.

This is a nice Irish setting pub with several bar areas and a lot of seating. There food is standard and beer selection is pretty big. In the nice months they have a Froze which is amazing. They always have the sporting events on.

We were seated at a small round table for two with another table next to us and felt very squeezed in. The food came out and the plates were super hot, especially the cast iron pan! It could have been a disaster if it was a child getting that! Our experience was just okay.

The food, ambiance and server were fine. The wait for food was horrible. 45 minutes to wait for dinner while others who came in after us were getting their meals and desserts. We had 3 children with us. My wife spoke to the manager and they took the meals off our bill for the inconvenience.

Shannon Rose is overall a nice place with great friendly wait staff and authentic feeling ambiance. It was surprisingly not busy and fairly quiet for a Saturday night. For those that drink there are plenty of options including many beers and ciders on draft, the cider I had was somewhat flat but still very tasty. The corned beef and cabbage egg rolls are excellent, I definitely recommend them as an app. Had the bangers and mash for my entree- the sausage was very good and the garlic spinach was tasty but the mashed potatoes were nothing special and the gravy tasted like Heinz jar gravy but saltier.

My friend and I went for dinner after coming home from NYC and dinner was delicious. I had the Shepard’s pie which was phenomenal. My friend had the chicken pot pie, which she enjoyed but had noted it was rather dry inside, which is the only reason I deducted a star for the food. The corned beef spring rolls were delicious as well.
