Really hesitate to recommend this place, as it's small (seats about 45-50 max), and don't want to wait in line. All of our guests we have taken to Shaner's agree and can't wait to visit again. They have carry-out as well. The whole menu is very good. The Shaner's chopped salad is also great.

We have been coming to the various locations of Shanes pizza for many years! We love the super thin crust pizza! Every time we are in Sarasota we have to go there! They have great salads too! I haven't ventured out to try anything else here because I always have to have their pizza.

Best thin crust pizza in Sarasota. Been in town many years. Moved to this smaller location awhile back. Now need to look for a good deep dish pizza.

We have been looking for thin crust pizza for some time. We finally found it right in our neighborhood. Very tasty indeed. The place is on the small side and could use some sprucing up. It seemed that the owner knew a lot of patrons by name, shows that people keep coming back. Always a good sign. The service was... More

Enough already about New York Pizza. Despite the bravado about deep dish pizza, Chicago is not the second city when it comes to thin crust. And Shaner's does it perfectly, even though Shane is from Racine, WI and one of the best pitchers ever in the major leagues, he has down it right... the sauce, the sausage, the squares and... More

Nice neighborhood bar/ pizza joint. Only thin crust pizza, probably the best I had in Sarasota. A little pricey, but good quality ingredients.

I'm constantly on the hunt for pizza that reminds me of The Miami Valley. If you like "cracker crust" style pizza that's cut in squares...this is the place for you. Every time I see "thin crust" I have visions of Casano's & Marion's...only to find out I'm eating a NY slice...NO LONGER A PROBLEM! Shaner's is a nice little place.... More
