Excellent service when sitting at the bar, good drinks to accompany our fried green beans, and a corn bread roll.

They really shine when it comes to meat dishes(Except fish), but their sides aren't really all that great, especially the Mac and Cheese, which seems to be VERY pasty. It was like eating macaroni in cheese-flavored glue. But overall, it's pretty alright. Your best bet are the ribs for a true BBQ experience.

It is a popular place with my friends. It is one os their favorites. It was my first time there. I ordered the Game Hen. It looked good and juicy from the outside. They put a sauce on it. Inside it seemed sort of dry and a late hard. Like they cooked it earlier and heated it up. The cheese... More

I ordered fish tacos with grilled corn. The fish was overcooked to the point that I could not chew some smaller pieces. It tasted good though. The corn was another matter. It smelled and tasted like bbq starter fluid. It was terrible.

It may sound like an oxymoron, (the name that is) but the steaks were pretty good despite being somewhat thin. I prefer a thick steak to one chosen for its impressive plate coverage. The drinks were well crafted and the service was stellar.

Our family friends and mine get together and come here for dinners. Papa being a very picky steak eater will only order steak here, that tells me it is awesome. Meals are well proportioned, kids split the meals, service has always been good. If you have sensitive ears pick a side room, they have an electrostatic ball, pretty impressive for... More

Amazing bar, with dozens of microbrews, and quality wines by the glass. Actually had a Japanese whisky at this place. Food quality is good. Main focus is on smoked and grilled meats, but they make an excellent clam chowder, and grilled oysters. You will spend $50 per person, including drinks

On the advise of the desk staff at our hotel we walked to Shamus T-Bones for dinner. The staff was warm and inviting. The hostess recommended the tri-tip and I am very glad I trusted her. Piled high strips of meat with a very tasty sauce coating was fantastic. The salads, vegies, and potatoes were all very tasty. Try this... More

Fun times with family and friends then add great food and drinks. Big family outing with guests from out of town and Shamus did a super job on a large variety of menu items. My personal side favorite is the Mac and Cheese. We will be back for a business lunch later this week!
