Their dinner menu was fairly good, but their breakfast buffet was the worse I ever had. I couldn't stomach the eggs or the potatoes. They only had a choice of french toast, hard pastries, out of season fruit, no pancakes, and an omelet station. I was highly disappointed since we paid for a bed and breakfast package. Even with the... More

For dinner food was okay. Some dishes tried too hard and didn't quite meet the mark. Salads and soup were good. Entrees were overly creative causing them to not work Kids pasta was even over seasoned. Breakfast buffet was ok. Standard fair.

This restaurant is off the lobby of the Shawnee Inn so it's very convenient if you don't want to drive anywhere to eat. The food was good especially the chili and portobello entree. We also enjoyed the beer from the local brewery.

We visited Shawnee the first weekend of November. It was 75 degrees. The A/C was off from the season. Needless to say it was uncomfortable inside with no air movement. The service was good and from there it was down hill. We were there for lunch and ordered burgers fries and beer. Thinking it would be a safe choice. There... More

The house salad comes with pretty much any entree, and it's outstanding. The lettuce blend is magical - it's crisp, large, and flavorful. The entrees are all pretty rich - I didn't see anything light - but the eggplant stack pasta was very tasty. Our server Jose was outstanding. The entree is big enough to split for lighter appetites. The... More

Our server Dan was so wonderful to us! He made some great suggestions, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We went during the off-season, so the vibe was very casual, but we had a great time trying different appetizers and the Shawneecraft beers! The lobster mac and cheese was sooooo creamy!

The selection at the breakfast buffet was plentiful and the food was very good and fresh. It was a good value. The only reason that I have only given this restaurant a 3 star rating is because the tableware--utensils and coffee cup--were dirty. They had the table pre-set and it was not just my setting but others at the table... More

We had breakfast twice and lunch once. Breakfast was a buffet with an omelet station. A large and nice selection of food. It was a busy Labor Day weekend and the breakfast staff had to hustle just to clear the tables and get them re-set. They were kind but too busy to notice coffee cups were empty but happy to... More
