Good food, great atmosphere

Went for lunch and was served promptly and courteously - had the German Bologna Sandwich and a cup of soup - both were very good. I'll definitely come again.

Great place in nice village. We found out that it's open late, which is the best. They have a lot of menu items and the food is really good.

Shade on Canal is a pretty decent restaurant/sports bar. The menu is huge so there are plenty of options. I found the food to be pretty good too, if a tad overpriced. The servers are friendly and helpful. What I don't like is that the tables are jam packed and it can get very loud...almost to the point we were... More

This place is too expensive and service was not very well. Tables are on top of each other. A guy was at the bar cussing up a storm and nothing was said to him. TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE

There is always a line on the weekends for Shades. The food is good though so be patient. As with any sports bar it can get noisy in here. Their wings are great and so is their pizza.

Great loaded chips. My husband and I like to eat places that are local and not chain restaurants. We tried this place for a quick bite to eat and we loved it. The atmosphere was casual but the food was excellent. A couple of weeks later I had dinner with friends. I can't wait to go back for those loaded... More

First: the fish tacos were excellent! The serve was very very SLOW. It took 1 1/2 hours for the meal to be served. As the time limbered on, the server was more belligerent in her looks and mannerism. I tried to quicken the stay by taking my bill to the cash, but NO the server needed to preform this function.... More

My friend lives in Canal Winchester and suggested this place. It was perfect and the food was delicious. They had some really unique items and a lot of menu items to offer. You know it's a winner when the kids enjoyed it too!

Good food, nice atmosphere and a friendly staff. The menu is huge! It takes awhile to decide what to eat. I had a Fish Rueben that was excellent and unique. Enjoy!
