Tuesday night $11 Parmies....crazy selection to choose from! I usually avoid chicken when I eat out, not sure why but anyway ... so we hit the Shamrock for their cheap Tuesday Parmigiana. I was ravenous (having forgone lunch) and had considered ordering myself two Parmies. Glad I didn't because the Tropical Parmy I had was a decent size, and I... More

We were staying at the Quest and decided to go for a meal at the Shamrock, our last meal for 2016! We picked a table outside and hubby went in and ordered. On the weekends kids eat free, so got them a kids meal which includes meal, drink and ice cream. Hubby and I settled on the Parma. He got... More

The Shamrock Hotel is great for a $10.00 lunch, it is not a place for everyone to eat at in the Public Bar but very entertaining for broad minded every day people, there is a Beer Garden Bistro out the back for families.

Nice pub with a very fairly limited food range. Nothing too Irish about the selections. Staff not overly friendly to strangers but seem to know most of the locals. Beer was served nice and cold

Stopped in for lunch, the staff were friendly, the meals were beautiful, my husband was still talking about it at dinner time, at a very reasonable price. When we are back in Townsville, we will be having lunch at the Shamrock Hotel.

The Shamrock hotel provides a well priced good value and tasty menu. Their current specials are mouth watering and extremely good value for the hungry patrons. They currently have a special Parma day with their variety of 16 parmies on the menu, that in association with their crumbed steak, chicken snitzels, fish of the day and steak sandwiches makes your...

Choice of eating areas, we sat outside, beside Murphy's Bar. The menu reflects Aussie Pub Style food, and has a great selection of Parma's (Schnitzels), as well as the classic Queensland Crumbed Steak. Long list of toppings for Schnitzels, and price deals on certain days. Fresh oysters were magnificent. Staff very friendly and helpful, meal sizes generous, and very competitively... More
