We used to go here frequently but tried a few times since the change in ownership. Must not have the same cook since many of the menu items were not prepared the same. Why would anyone grill meatloaf? We will not return.

This our go to place for burgers. They cook them the way you want them. The meat is fresh from the local butcher and delicious. Homemade chips are light and crisp. Servers are friendly. No matter what we've ordered- it's always been good.

Haven't been for a long time since 3 out of 4 visits were poor. Went tonight, not very crowded for season. Ordered grilled shrimp with lemon butter and mashed potatoes and gravy, soup was cabbage. Soup was lukewarm at best. No flavor. Everyone else got their dinner, and my shrimp were written up incorrectly. So most everyone was almost finished... More

When my best friend invited me to lunch here, I was delighted since I had not been in several months. I was not even aware that it had changed hands!!! Our server Karen took good care of us, and the owner came out personally to greet us, and I thought that was a nice touch. Since my friend was in... More

The Shamrock Cafe is open all day - breakfast through dinner. It has an extensive menu and is very nicely decorated inside. Just the hours, the size of the menu offerings and ambiance inside makes this an unusual place. I would recommend visiting for a meal or two and making up your own mind. You can't go wrong, but I...

Had fish fry and BLT (renowned). Fish was Basa, a tasty white fish from Asia. Came with cup of NE chowder and was good. BLT and home made chips also good. Very decent pricing and server Karen most attentive. Have had Sunday brunch here before and it was quite good. Fyi parking also in back of building.

Stopped for dinner and saw there sign for fish fry. So of course I went with that as my option. Very good in fact cooked just right. My wife opted for there meatloaf and let me tell you she said it was better than her grandmas. All in all great visit nice clean laid back family restaurant.
