We had a couple of hours to burn between hotel checkout and flight departure and the staff at this restaurant took really good care of us! They helped stow our bags and gave us a quiet spot in the back. The food was lovely and...the proportions generous. I had the blackened ahi. They have some fun cocktails to pass the time. Our server was like a good friend by the time we left!More

I am confused how this restaurant is currently ranked #7 in Roanoke. The family wanted to go out for a nice dinner so I suggested we try Shakers because of its high rating. I don’t feel like our expectations were too high because of the...#7 ranking and paying $30+ each for steak. At a minimum, you expect them to be cooked correctly. They were not. All steaks were cooked exactly the same - well-done and dry. We had ordered steaks medium and some medium well. My husband did complain which was awkward but he received a small refund - only for his steak. Maybe this high rating is for food other than steaks but our side items were not that great either. My family has now banned me from suggesting restaurants. On the way home we had a lively discussion about TripAdvisor reviews. They are only as good as the feedback given, so this is our honest feedback. We do not recommend Shakers based on our experience.More

Shakers has a great variety. It's a big place so there is seldom a wait to get seated. They have a nice bar area where you can watch games. Also there is a big room for private parties.

Fast seating. Great atmosphere. The menu is amazing. I'm a southern Geechee girl and was impressed by the selections. It was hard to choose due to every entree was unique and had a twist of flavors. I chose the catfish bowl with grilled chicken added....The portions were for two. The creole sauce with shrimp and sausage was a delight. The creamed spinach was mouthwatering.More

Super friendly and helpful staff. Great menu! Very patient with us - a tired family with 3 young, hungry kids. The manager even came over to bring the kids crackers while we waited for our food. Tacos and fries were great.

Stopped by for dinner and had the Honey Glazed Pork Chops and house salad . Nice flavor to the honey glaze. I was seated promptly and the server checked in with me often.

Stopped in with my daughter for a quick dinner and a drink. We got the bang bang shrimp app, it was $13 and was not worth it, small shrimp and the sauce was really flat. I also got the Ahi Tuna and it was average...at best. We sat at the bar and the service was slow, we had to keep asking for refills, utensils etc. Nothing was bad, but nothing I would rememberMore

Roanoke was our first stop over of a 10 day vacation. We had a great dinner and nice time at Shakers. Interesting food, nice craft beer selection, nice decor, and a fun wait staff. Price was right, we had fun, and left full and happy.

I have been dining at Shakers for many years and they are by far - one of the top 5 restaurants in Roanoke Virginia. I have tried many different items on their menu and they are all excellent. I especially love their unique salads and...their serving sizes are very large. This is local and non-chain restaurant and many national chain restaurants cannot compete with Shakers for great quality food and atmosphere!More

Prices keep going up and the quality keeps going down. Service was friendly but the past few times we've come we've noticed you no longer get value for what you get. My daughter's chicken and sweet potato were half the size it used to be....The catfish isn't as good as it used to be. Portions of everything were smaller. Won't be coming backMore
