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.

Always love this place. Great Irish comfort food and my Vegan daughter can still find food she likes. I come for the wide selection of Irish Whisky but the kids enjoy the craft beer menu and the wife enjoys the decor and having food that reminds her of our trips to Ireland.

Food, service and beer selection always great. But for the love of God, either have the band play or blast the house music. Not both! I came out of there with a headache. Lesson learned, leave before 10 pm on Saturdays

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.

We came to the Shannon Rose in Clifton to see The Mighty Spectrum Band play on 9/8/18 .assuming that it was as good as the Shannon Rose in Ramsey, NJ. Boy were we wrong. We had a reservation for 8 people @ 8:00 & finally got seated @ 8:45. While waiting, we only got updates when we asked for them before finally getting seated at a table a low table that seated 6 adults comfortably if you were on the throne bench & became a squeeze when the 7th person arrived.

Our waiter, 517 Sims, showed up to get our drink orders & looked at us like we had two heads when we asked if there were any specials on the menu (Ramsey has specials). Once he took our orders at 9:28, we rarely saw him the rest of the night. The Corned Beef Spring Rolls were luke warm & he was no where to be found to send them back. We had asked for mustard to be brought to the table for my turkey burger when the entrees were served & we had to ask the waiter for it again when he came over to see how our food was. The food was okay, but the portion of Sweet Potato friens was small & luke warm as they had been sitting waiting to be brought out & while I was waiting for the Mustard.

After our food came & he asked how it was, the next time we saw him was when he was rushing us to pay the check so he could go home. We could not find him so that the 7th member of our table could order when she got there (she ended up not eating & got her drink at the bar along with refills of some of our drinks). When he came to drop the check, we asked for dessert menus so we could order dessert & finally brought them after we paid the check. He told us the other server would be able to take our dessert order & never told her we wanted dessert. By the time we flagged Catherine down, the kitchen staff said the kitchen was on the late night menu and could not make desserts.

We drove over an hour to see the band and have dinner and the only way we will come back is for the band and if Catherine is our server the whole night

We celebrated my son's 26th birthday with a great food! The atmosphere was very warm and inviting from the moment we entered. After choosing some beer from the varieties offered, we started with traditional buffalo wings. Cooked to perfection and a nice side of carrots and celery! The meals came out shortly thereafter and were perfectly delicious. Too full for dessert at that point but overall amazing experience.
