They are the best in Salmon for fine dinning. I had the Copper River Salmon and it was awesome. Great Staff.

Visited twice over the weekend. Steak pretty good. Salad with ahi the next night tasty. Beer cold. Bartender and waitresses sweet. Clientel local and older. Music hopping. I can see why some reviews are not so great, but if you have low or no expectations you may be pleasantly surprised.

Had wonderful food last night at the Shady Nook after walking over from the Stagecoach Inn. Quiet dining room just off the bar where it was really happening! It was fun talking to our waitress who grew up in the area. You could tell she enjoyed her job and complimented the chef and had great suggestions for our late dinner.... More

I had some of the best food and service I have ever had in my life at the Shady Nook. Their prawns were amazing. Must try their cilantro lime dressing, and fried oysters. WOW! Service was out of this world! Our waitress was so sweet, she told my mom and I to call her if we needed anything during the... More

Alligator was excellent, dinner excellent the service was good until they bring your entree before you are even done with salad ask you about desert before your third bite and want to bring your check before you are even 1/4 thru dinner. They rush you and all you want to do is enjoy your over priced bottle of wine and... More

The menu is standard pub fare -- the quality is very good. It seems to be the place locals like to frequent, maybe that speaks to the quality itself! Good vibe and friendly atmosphere. Service was nice and prompt. Shockingly I may have had the best gumbo I have ever had at this restaurant! I would recommend this to a... More

One of the worst tasteless, not cooked correctly steak and the mashed ordinary potatoes were cold. WE waited a long time... Place was empty and that should have been the 1st clue. Took 17 minutes to get water, had to ask for bread. Menu is not the one that is on line. Don't bother here... Place needs a chief, staff,... More

The salmon with baked potato was of quality and adequate, the salad right out of bag, not even washed but a heap of dry leaves piled on a bread plate with a dressing served on a side. Over the years the carpet has soaked in many drinks and meals, looked and smell so.
