My friend and I went for lunch here. I had been to the tavern for dinner a while ago, but am happy to report both times meant very good food. For lunch we had Chicken Caesar Wraps, which had the surprise addition of bacon. The combination of flavors was very pleasing, and I'm not a huge fan of bacon. I asked for mine to be light on the dressing, and that request was honored. They were not busy, and I felt the food service could have been a little faster, but this was not a big problem.

Great place to stop in for drinks, appetizers, food and companionship. It is obviously THE neighborhood bar with friendly staff and patrons. My husband and I were biking on the Northwest River Trail and stopped in for a break one evening. Well, 2 hours later we rode our bikes back to Maytown, happy and full. The staff welcomed us and made sure all needs were met promptly, We plan to return this week.

I bicycle the NW River Trail about 8 times a years, and have hit a few of the pubs in Marietta, I like Shanks alot, its definitely a neighborhood tavern. They will have the old windows open on warm days, I like it that way. The bathroom is small but its all part of the old tavern feel. The food is good and so are the drinks. Every bartender has been nice. Some of the other pubs get very crowded, thats another reason why I come to Shanks.

Best bar in terms of non fried food! LOL. All food is fresh and made to order which is amazing! Nothing frozen because there is no fryer! This is why this tavern is the best in the area! Best night to go is Friday’s because it’s seafood night and Shanks has the best hand rolled sushi and steamers!! I always get the Chesapeake roll, and mahogany clams with their hefe on tap. I also love Thursday’s because the special is beef on wheck which is so delicious here!!Great place for music too! A great party atmosphere but the party is usually done by 10 pm since everyone parties so hard all day!
