We stopped at Shoeless Joes to catch the Saturday race. I was very impressed that our bartender went out of his way to turn it on as it was not on any of the tv's when we got there. Great service!

The cafe is convenient for those who stay at the Crowne Plaza hotel since it's in the same building. As you would expect there are lots of TV screens, baseball pictures on the walls and a fairly large selection of American food. My fish sandwich was good and my husband enjoyed his burger. We however had to cut our dinner... More

Glad you and your husband enjoyed your fish sandwich and the burger! I'm sorry you had to cut your meal short because you were so cold, though. I wish you would've mentioned this to your server. Of course, we want our guests to be comfortable, and we would've happily fixed it right away. We'll make sure it doesn't happen again.... More

My wife and I walked in around 10:30am to get breakfast. We were the only 2 people in the place. I had to go and look for someone to help us. The server repeated our order twice and brought out the wrong drink after she said apple juice twice.(not a big deal). She brought me coffee but never asked if... More

The good news is that when all the really good restaurants in the area have an hour wait, you can probably get into Shoeless Joe's. That tells you something. But the food isn't bad, there's a pretty good selection of items, the service is good, the prices are reasonable and the beer is cold. Can't ask for a lot more... More

We're a little disappointed to hear that the best thing about our place was its location. We'd definitely like to make that better. While it's wonderful that the beer was cold and the service is good, we want the food to be a highlight. Thanks for letting us know it was just okay. Hopefully next time it will be a... More

We are here every year (for the past five) and love it. Food is fantastic...where do I start? Pizza is perfect-- crust, toppings, right amount of cheese. Blackened fish sandwiches--huge. Fries done to perfection. Homemade chicken noodle soup The best by far! Staff is very friendly although somewhat overwhelmed as it seems as though they could use more. Otherwise, great... More

We ate here one night as we were staying at the Crowne Plaza. Our meals were ok as bar meals go, but most options seem to be deep fried, so I just stuck to the salad. My husband had the chilli soup, but he said it just ok. We like the option of sitting outside and there was a kareoke... More

Stopped by Shoeless Joe's bc of the menu (covers many peoples tastes) plus the patio is dog friendly. Patio is near a quiet street so no car noise.
