The food was just average. A friend had raved about the place and perhaps built up my expectations. The people seemed nice enough, but it didn't leave much of an impression. It's a good place to get an everyday meal, but not a destination restaurant by any means.

This refers to the Gulfgate Shaner's. Went after the theater for a quick bite. Ordered the pizza. Wow! This is a "contender" for the best pizza in Sarasota. Quite honestly, when we first moved to SRQ several moons ago, Shaner's was recommended as best in town and we gave it a try. Unimpressive. Now, fast forward all these years and... More

Small selection of draught beers and none that I liked. The selection of wines was also very limited.

Four of us ate supper at Shaners; mainly pizza. We have eaten at their two earlier locations and while this one is small we had no problem parking and the food and service was great. We will definitely return.

We were frequent visitors to the two previous Shaners and this location is quite a bit different. Walking in you get the sensation you are in a small warehouse; high ceilings but no atmosphere. As we always do, we ordered the Antipasto and Shaners favorite pizza. The Antipasto at $11 was small for the price. The menu reads that it... More

It is a smaller venue but more in line with the type of food served. I got the usual Shaner's favorite pizza and it is just as good as I remembered. It is by far my favorite pizza in Sarasota. Now at 6500 Superior Ave. Sarasota, FL 34231 941-927-2708

We're glad you enjoyed the new location! Every dish on our new menu is made from scratch, all the way down to the homemade croutons and pickles. More
