Shamus is a unique restaurant in Lockport, NY The food is good and the sandwiches are hearty. The pecan crusted pork chops are excellent. It is worth the trip to Lockport for lunch or dinner.

Four of us had New Years dinner. I was wonderful. The owner was doing the seating. The service was excellent. The entrees were the best. It was pricey. I would go back for a special occasion.

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.

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.

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.
