Great sports bar!

Wings are great! Meat You! Any sauce you could want. Great salads! Big menu. Good bar choices too! New outdoor patio is a nice touch

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!

Food is great along with the prices. The atmosphere has that small town feeling which is great although it can get loud at times. My wife and I have visited on several occasions and were never disappointed.

We have lived in Canal Winchester for the last five years and we typically visit Shade on the Canal about twice a month at the very least. The menu is diverse and there is basically something for everyone. The only area that is lacking would be for vegetarians. The atmosphere is nice. It can be loud and very crowded at... More
