Description: Thin Crust Pizza / Sports Bar
Reviewed April 11, 2013

If you like thin crust style pizza, then you will like the pizza at Shaners. However, there really isn't much else about the menu this is worthy of discussion. You can't even order a steak! Limited beer selection as well, and ambiance is a 0 out of 10 (absolutely no charm to be found whatsoever). Yes, there are some flat screens to watch the game, but I think that a good establishment which is worthy of patronage should have more than just a couple of flat screens and a boring menu. Also, the bartender (a Svengali type) seemed to be so fixated on the 3 or 4 females sitting at the bar that it was difficult at times to get service. We won't return any time soon. My 2 points is just for the pizza, nothing else. For good pub food, good service, and good ambiance, try Shakespears!

Withouth question this is the place for pizza and ice cold beer. Moved into a larger restaurant area and that was a wise move. Lot's of TV's to watch sports while munching on the sweetest pizza I've ever had. I' a pizza person and this place blows everyone else away.

Six adults, all of us friends, went out to eat at Shaner's on Sat night. They sat us next to a few adults (I use that term loosely!), 3 teenage girls (who were fine), and 3 boys about 11 yrs old. They were monsters, yelling, screaming, rough housing to where you couldn't talk or hear. No adult spoke to them, but I spoke to other customers who were shocked, and they complained to their waitress, who then went to the mother and pointed out the table who complained. It is the restaurants business to handle such matters! I will NEVER eat there again as they don't know how to treat good customers. Well, good luck in staying in business with that attitude! You'll have no customers who will want to come and be treated like that!

We have been going to Shaner's since they were in Gulf Gate and bought a Groupon to use at the new location. Unfortunately our waitress had absolutely no idea how groupon works or what was going on. Upon asking if we could sit at 2 tables so we and another family could both use our Groupons, she very rudely informed us that since she knew we were together there's no way she could use 2!!! Everywhere else that we've went with 2 Groupons have no problem with them being used together. In fact their excited to have people in the restaurants!!! To say the least we won't be returning since it appears that the heart of Shaner's has changed drastically!!!!

All dishes are great, even the hamburgers. Atomosphere is cool. Shane is awesome, and his menu is best by far for a sports bar.
