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

Went with a friend. It was nothing special, wouldn't go back when there are so many more appealing restaurants in Sarasota. The service was OK, food not particularly tasty but nothing terrible. Just OK.

Some one suggested to me recently to go to Shaners, that was when I said ABSOLUTELY NOT! As our last experience here (@ Shaners)...was THE WORST I have EVER had ANYWHERE! It sort of began when we first entered...everything was dirty...it was busy, sure....but We kinda understood.....however, it just kept getting worse as it progressed. We had some cocktails....and two... More

We have eaten at Shaner's for years. Loved it when it was in other location. Since they moved, the menu has changed. We ate there twice, in the last month and noticed that they no longer have customers. Also, half of the restaurant is NOT air conditioned, so we HAD to eat in the bar. Last night, we ate there...

If you like thin crust style pizza, then you will like the pizza at Shaners. However, there really isn't much else about the menu this is worthy of discussion. You can't even order a steak! Limited beer selection as well, and ambiance is a 0 out of 10 (absolutely no charm to be found whatsoever). Yes, there are some flat... More

Withouth question this is the place for pizza and ice cold beer. Moved into a larger restaurant area and that was a wise move. Lot's of TV's to watch sports while munching on the sweetest pizza I've ever had. I' a pizza person and this place blows everyone else away.

Six adults, all of us friends, went out to eat at Shaner's on Sat night. They sat us next to a few adults (I use that term loosely!), 3 teenage girls (who were fine), and 3 boys about 11 yrs old. They were monsters, yelling, screaming, rough housing to where you couldn't talk or hear. No adult spoke to them,... More

We have been going to Shaner's since they were in Gulf Gate and bought a Groupon to use at the new location. Unfortunately our waitress had absolutely no idea how groupon works or what was going on. Upon asking if we could sit at 2 tables so we and another family could both use our Groupons, she very rudely informed... More
