Visited the Ellicott City area and taken by locals to this ‘bar-restaurant.’. Good bar...good food...good drinks. Win-win-win! Chicken wings, fresh shrimp, and caesars salad with blackened shrimp.

We go to Shannon's every time we visit our hometown of Baltimore! Their food is ALWAYS great and the bar serves a great mixed drink. Enjoy their crabcakes every time, and this visit included soft shell crabs too! Always a winner.

We eat at Shannon's every week and have gotten to know many of the same people---those who also go there because all the food is so good. It's a comfortable, neighborhood place where all the staff are so friendly and on the ball.

I have eaten at Shannon's about 6 times and I don't remember seeing a children's menu. I have never seen any children younger than teenagers.
