From the brightly-themed red pub shop exterior architecture to the two impressive large bars that stretch nearly the length of the 7,500 sq. ft. restaurant, each designed in a traditional Irish pub style, guests feel as though they are in Ireland.  The restaurant has three-hundred and thirty seats and features a semi-private dining area that allows guests to have a more intimate dinner or host a special private event such as a family or corporate gathering.  Sports are featured at the pub on large HDTV flat-screens located throughout the rooms with a multitude of sports channels including international sports, as well as two dart boards for guests to enjoy.  During warmer months, the patio will provide outdoor dining centered by a large firepit and surrounded by beautiful landscaping.

The Shannon Rose offers a full menu including traditional Irish favorites like homemade Shepherds’ Pie and Guinness Beef Stew as well as award-winning pub classics such as pulled pork & Reuben sandwiches, sliders, chicken, grilled steak, fish of the day and the famous Shannon Rose Burger, voted “Best Burger” by the Clifton Journal.  The Shannon Rose offers twenty beers on tap including Irish standouts like Guinness, Harp and Smithwick’s, other popular imports, regional craft beers and domestic favorites.
