The outdoor patio is great, and its your prototypical sports bar. The food was out of this world, but took a little longer than we're used to. Then again, we're from Chicago, where everything moves a bit faster.

We actually stopped in for lunch on our way to checking into the Homewood suites next door. Surprised by the number of TVs. Waitstaff was attentive and even gave up tips on getting around the area quicker. We both had the Philly Cheesesteak and fries which were very good. Beer and drink specials so ask if you are interested.

Visited the restaurant on a Sunday night about 6pm. There were 3 sets of customers waiting as the sign was up to wait to be seated. A man arrived to answer the phone as it had been ringing quite a while. He did not acknowledge the crowd waiting to be seated. And, in fact left us standing there after the... More

It's unfortunate that you didn't like the pizza, and that the initial service was slow. We'll make sure that our hostess is always available and attentive to our incoming guests from now on. I'm glad to hear your server was fast and friendly, though. I'm especially disappointed to hear that your pizza wasn't even as good as a frozen one.... More

A great place to watch your favorite team on TV with your friends and family. My family group of 11 was seated and served quickly. My softball team of 15 was also there at the next group of tables. It does get busy on Sunday afternoon but there is ample seating for groups. I ordered the beer brat and kraut... More

It's wonderful to hear that you and your group had a great Sunday afternoon at our place. I'm happy you liked the beer brat, but we'll work on making sure we're serving the freshest buns. I'm also glad to hear your large groups were able to be seated so quickly, too! It's too bad we don't have more beers to... More

We spent four days at the Crown Plaza so had lunch a few times at Shoeless Joes. The food and service were both good. Better than your average hotel eatery. Nice atmosphere if you are in to sports bars. We are an older couple so that was not much of a draw for us, but it is well maintained with... More

Watch 3 games at one time, ate good food and drank, socialized with many visitors from all over. Cheered for others and cheered for my home team.
