Loved the wild fires! I think the wings are too big. They don’t get done enough for me! Love the atmosphere there. Salads are good. Had a bad waitress. All In all I would go back.

Another hotel patron raved about this restaurant, so we gave it a try. Sadly, although not crowded, it took almost an hour to get two sandwiches, which were mediocre at best. However, our server, Lisa, made our visit much more enjoyable than the food.

My husband and I stopped here after dropping our daughter off at college and were pleasantly surprised. Service was great, food and drinks were delicious, reasonable prices. It was a nice day and there was a band playing out on the deck.

I was satisfied with my visit to Shade on State Street. The service is quite good, although beware of long wait times, especially during lunch. I went with a business group, and what was supposed to be a "brief" wait ended up lasting over 20...More

Sunday night after the rush and the restaurant was less than a third full. There seemed to be plenty of staff - yet three waitresses came to our table in twenty minutes, and only then could we place our order. The waitress disappeared again. Had...More

Staying at the Hampton Inn in Athens Ohio and this restaurant is right next to it. Short walk so I gave it a try. I ate at their sister restaurant in Heath Ohio the other day. Service was nice and friendly. Sat at the bar...More
