“Great Ruebens!!!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Shoeless Joe's is a sports bar and restaurant with alot of atmosphere and a fun place gto go after a baseball game. We've eaten there for years and after trying countless items on their menu I love the ruebens, I couldn't make them better at home than they do at Shoeless Joes. Plenty of tender corn beef that melts in your mouth. I love them.

“Rude bartenders”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Went to the patio to order food and never got a menu. My ice tea took 10 minutes after I made the order. The trivia box would not let me login to my user name and asked for help. Bartender was rude and I left the patio and went and sat at the bar inside the restaurant. I mention to the bartender the person was rude outside and cannot sign in with my username. She was rude too and said, sign in as a guest. I walked out.

I'm really sorry to hear about your experience, Herr. What you described is very uncommon here. Typically our service is very prompt and conducted by a friendly, personable staff. I'll definitely check in with the team about this, so thanks for bringing it up, but hopefully we'll see you again someday. I would really appreciate the opportunity to improve upon this first impression.

Have a great weekend,

Deborah, Assistant Manager

“Drink, don't eat”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Their famous fish sandwich was average at best - and an unidentifiable species. Where's the Florida grouper? Fries average at best. That's all I tried.

I'm really sorry to hear this, Gary. The Fish Sandwich is one of our most popular dishes and I want every guest to fully enjoy their meal and experience every time they walk through the door. Would you mind sharing specifically what you didn't like about your food? I'd really appreciate it.

Have a great weekend,

“Great bar food”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

Personal service at the bar. Awesome fish and chips. Could in no way eat one order for one person. Enough for two and then some!

“Great Dinner”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

After arriving late to my hotel, I was less than thrilled that a sports bar was my only option. I have to admit that my grilled mahi with a tropical salsa was surprisingly delicious and the staff very nice!
