The food was plenty and delicious. We went to the bar due to 35 minute wait time, but found a table at the bar available. The 3 bartenders ensured we never ran out of drinks. The food came pretty quickly, and it was delicious. We will definitely stop there again.

We stayed at a hotel close by, and walked here for dinner. Service was great, and food was very good. Would recommend it for sure!

Great food and great service. 4 stars!!! These folks were very accommodating as we were a large group. The wait for a table took some time but they made up for it in service and quality of food. (To be fair the evening we dined was very busy and they had several large parties.) Being a vegetarian there were good... More

Well, I hate to give a good restaurant a bad review so I still give it 4 *s, but my dinner tonight was definitely not up to par. I have dined at Shakers many times over the years and have always enjoyed the experienced. Tonight, however, my Crispy Fried Buffalo Wings were undercooked. The flavor was excellent, but the meat...

Thank you for your honest review and awesome to hear your experience with us is normally up to par with your expectations.

We ate at Shakers on a recommendation from our hotel. They recommended the seafood, so that is what we ordered. The seafood was very well cooked. We had the seafood platter, catfish filet, shrimp, oysters. The fish was very tasty and cooked to perfection. My husband tried a flight of beer and really enjoyed that.

This restaurant was fairly basic, but it had good variety and the food was decent for the price. They had a decent selection of local craft beers, and you could keep an eye on football games if you took advantage of the open seating in the bar area.

Thank you for your positive review. We do offer a variety of American food but we try our best to be far from basic with our quality. Making most every dish from scratch, making our own salad dressings from scratch, hand cutting steaks, etc... I hope your next visit really wows you and you are able to taste the difference... More
