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

I've eaten here for lunch and dinners. The person they call a chef is heavy handed on green peppers so one needs ask if it's a part of the dish. For example, I had stuffed mushrooms that all one could taste was green peppers, a true chef uses ingredients as complimentary not overpowering. Steak has been tough and I order... More

My wife and I often go to Shamus for a late lunch after golfing, and she and her meet up group go every Friday for lunch. Three weeks ago we went early on a Saturday night for dinner. The food was great as usual even though they were very busy. The owner, Ann, is usually there helping out and acting... More
