This is without question the best restaurant in Lockport and surrounding area. We have been there a couple of times, once for lunch on the patio late last summer and then a romantic dinner one evening recently. The owner is onsite and makes a point to speak with you, she is a lovely lady with a lot of grace and... More

Before attending a Historical Society of Niagara function, my wife and I decided to explore restaurants in Lockport NY and found the Shamus Restaurant to be just the place we were looking. Its atmosphere was inviting and its food was delicious. My wife had the pot roast and I had the seafood pie and both entrees were perfectly prepared. The... More

Friends and I brought my sister here for her birthday dinner. Excellent food (even the rolls were warm when they were brought to our table); food is cooked fresh and to order; wait staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and takes care of you. Restaurant is decorated for Christmas. Atmosphere is quaint, homey.

This is one place that cannot be judged by the looks!! We wanted something different from the regular places visited in the area. This turned out to be an ideal place with the setting and feeling of being home. Very friendly service, delicious food and reasonable cost.

We had a pleasantly unexpected afternoon lunch on the patio!The hostess and waitress were very accommodating and informative! I had a delicious butternut squash soup that was to die for on a beautiful fall day! The corned beef Reuben my husband had he shared with me which was a good thing the slices of beef were so tender and thick... More
