Love the Irish fare at Shannon Rose. The corned beef & cabbage was delicious. My mom and sister had the chicken pot pie. They loved it. Service was great. We sat outside. Time to put up the umbrellas!

It was a very busy night there as it was St. Patrick's Day so I get that things were a little crazy but our waiter was largely inattentive and didn't seem happy when we returned our drinks (Shirley Temples) because they tasted weird. He was arguing that was the way they were supposed to taste. No need to argue. We just didn't like them.
The main entrees were good but it just took forever to get everything and the restaurant itself was not overly busy as they're still only at 35% capacity -- The take out line, however, was nuts.
So all in all - not great this time around.
We've been there before and it's been better. Food is always very good but unfortunately, the wait staff is always a little disappointing.
On a normal night, I would recommend for the food and the atmosphere. Just don't expect too much from your servers.

We went there for St. Patrick’s Day. It was the first time out in months, due to work schedules and COVID restrictions. The food and the service were great. The waitress was excellent. We made a reservation way in advance. The hostess was not good. She asked us if we wanted bar seating. When we said no and wanted a regular table, she purposely sat us in a tent, away from the restaurant, people and ambiance. We were the only people seated there except for a guy alone and some seated at the end of our time. When my wife asked to be relocated, we were told no, that she couldn’t accommodate us. We were only a party of four, three adults and a child. We were seated in the most undesired seating as a penalty for not not accepting her suggestion of high top bar seating. And we paid the same price for sitting in a white tent like second class diners. But like I said, the food and waitress were great. The hostess sucked.

I feel like the service is getting worse at Shannon Rose. It took forever to order an appetizer after our drinks came and then the server never even asked if we wanted an entree. Twenty minutes by the time we were able to flag him down and ask to order dinner. My friend ordered a ginger ale that came out looking like club soda, but it didn’t dawn on anyone that the machine needed attention. Food and drinks were delicious, thank goodness. Overall, I’d say the staff have a lack of attention to their customers and detail. Prior to finishing, I noticed a party that was seated nearby who also asked if a server would be coming to the table so they could place an order. Clearly, it’s an issue.

Ambience was great. Cocktails were delicious. The service was average with multiple reminders of the 90 min time cap which was annoying. Server was too busy and went missing for a bit and we had to flag someone else down to get our order in. The food was just ok. Fish and chips came out too brown and flavorless and the tacos were lacking as well. This is a fun bar, less of a dinner experience place.

We often eat at The Shannon Rose, but this last experience was bordering on dreadful. While the waitress was friendly enough, she made herself scarce throughout the evening. Another one of her tables was very close to ours, and she would stop by to check on them without touching base with us. Also, a large party with at least 8 children was seated in the corner, so the noise level was through the roof (we asked for another table, as the noise was ear-splitting). I realize there is little the staff can do about that, but it did detract from the overall experience. I got the lemon artichoke chicken, which is my go-to; the mashed potatoes were tasteless - the consistency was more like a very thin oatmeal. The breading on the chicken was mushy and flavorless. We decided to skip dessert because we weren't sure how long the waitress would take (understandably, there is a time limit for each seating). It will be a long time before we give this place another shot. Terribly disappointing.

Food is blend not worth the price. They do have a large beer selection but we would not recommend for dinning. Dessert was old , cookies dry and hard to eat, chicken wings not fresh.
Staff very nice.

Took a friend for their birthday and the food was amazing and the staff was really nice. The only thing was the table we sat at would have preferred a more private table but I would definitely drive the 3 hours to eat there again.

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.
