Extremely thin tiny pieces of pizza - not crispy at all. No taste - barely any sauce. Was recommended by friends. Terrible!

I hope you will try us again as the cut is what it is however, we could only hope the taste and overall freshness will speak for itself. We hope when you stop in you will ask for Shane.

Very nice, fresh salads. Great thin crust pizza. It gets very crowded. Call ahead for a table or sit at the bar. Valet parking is available.

The latest iteration of Shaners in Gulf Gate Village is different. This is more of a diner with a homey feel. Former MLB pitcher Shane Rawley is frequently working the counter. They have salads, sandwiches, and Italian dinners, but I always get the pizza. It's...More
