In Lockport for a bike charity ride we asked where we might get a nice piece of fish on a Friday evening. We were sent to Shamus and we were very happy campers. The waitress was quirky in a nice way, presenting specials and drink options with enthusiasm. A large craft brew menu gave us guys a Big Ditch IPA... More

Nice quiet restaurant, meals have enticing presentation, and staff people friendly! There is an upper room for larger groupings, and a friendly little bar, before dinner.

Smaller restaurant with a variety of entrees. Steak is always a favorite and hear the prime rib is just as good!

I decided to finally write a review on this restaurant after eating here two or three times a week for the last two years. The reason for taking so long in writing the review is due to the fact that for last two years I have taken the restaurants perfection for granted. I went out on a limb and took... More

As Lockport area residents the Shamus is a restaurant we frequent 4 or 5 times a year. The menu is extensive, food and service is excellent and there is a great room for gatherings of 20-30 people. Only complaint is that the dining rooms are on the loud side.

Menu is very limited. There were 7 of us and nobody was very impressed with the choices or how they turned out. Went a few years ago and was pleased with my meal but not so much this time. Won't be back.

We are very sorry that you were dissapointed & unimpressed with your recent dining experience. Our menu is seasonal and changing we are sorry you were unhappy with options and preparation. We make the majority of our menu from scratch and use only fresh, not frozen product wherever possible. We understand this is an inconvenience for some because it limits... More

Shamus is a unique restaurant in Lockport, NY The food is good and the sandwiches are hearty. The pecan crusted pork chops are excellent. It is worth the trip to Lockport for lunch or dinner.
