My wife and I used to hang out here with friends on Fridays after a tough day al Lawrence Tech. It's been about 18-years since our last visit and it's great to find the pizza is every bit as good as we both remember. The building is worn down a little but the atmosphere is still as fun. We were... More

Food, beer and service are very good. It sure was loud! Couldn't hear my table companions talk. Maybe I am getting too old for pubs?

Shields has loaded pizzas cooked to perfection. The cheese bread is essentially a cheese pizza cut into smaller portions. We went as a large family group and everyone enjoyed the experience. Service was fast and courteous.

Good but not great pizza. Somewhat inconsistent where sometimes it is undercooked. I prefer the "other" Detroit style pizza establishment but I frequent this place on occasion.

I was in town for business and we ended up doing lunch here. I was told their pizza is more of a deep dish style, which made me doubt right away if it was any good, I've had bad deep dish before. We ordered the Athenian and oh my word, I will have dreams about this pizza now!!!! It was... More

After dining at Buddy's the previous evening and not being here since the 70's, I was a bit surprised that Shield's had not kept up its appearance or its quality over the years. The deep dish pizza was just OK. While the salad was decent, a steak sandwich I ordered was without lettuce and tomato (that will be 50 cents... More

I have been to shields twice now for lunch. Ordered pizza both times and was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the food. The pizza is simply great. No issues w/ service and they have a reasonable beer selection with several Michigan brews (Dragonmead Final Absolution is what I ordered). No complaints.

Wow, first time led astray fellow reviewers. Nothing special about the pizza. Deep dish crust tastes like Pizza Hut pan. Gold Medal sauce is very spicy. Beer selection barely above minimal. Server was a young kid who was really trying, but he did get my dessert order wrong

We met friends for dinner and between the four of us had pizza, antipasto salad w/bread sticks, the italian ciabatta w/fries, and wings. More than we needed, with plenty to take home. All were delicious! Our server was attentive without being annoying, and kept the drinks filled and the dishes picked up. I love the detroit style pizza (who knew... More

Shields use to know for some of the best pizza in this area. Not the case anymore! The antipasti salad was the worst I have ever had. The ham on the pizza was sandwich slices cut into pieces the pepperoni was so thin you could barely taste it. We will not be retuning in the future. Extremely disappointed.
