Stopped in to try Radium City Brewing local beer and ended up spending a couple ours visiting with the patrons and staff member. Nice beer option when passing through town. Shared a pizza with the couple sitting by me and it was very good. Nice and thin and crisp.

Beer selection and bar staff were great but the place smells of fried food due to the open kitchen in the back!

Saw a band here recently and had a great time. The food was all delicious and the beer ice cold. Big place where people don't feel too on top of each other either. Really enjoyed it here!

Nice bar, typical bar food was good. I ordered the Italian sandwich. It was packed with lots of meat. I was in town for a week and went in 3 times. Neat atmosphere.

We're traveling across country and we stop in Ottawa, IL for the evening (at a newly redecorated Holiday Inn Express - pretty nice) right across the street. We walked over and found a terrific sports bar that's been here for 22 years. With a rotating draft menu (3 - 5 oz. beers for $4.00). The extensive "bar -food" menu was... More

Three of us stopped for an early (4:45 PM) dinner. We sat at a table near the bar because of the sparse amount of diners at that time of day. There are a lot of TVs around the bar area making it a very noisy experience. Our waitress was pleasant and efficient. We ordered hamburgers, hot dog and fries. The... More

We were in town shopping for a car and decided to check out this place. Very large and not super busy. Found a table near the bar and was waited on pretty quickly and friendly. Ordered drinks and the waitress brought me the wrong beer. Ordered some food and the second waitress brought me the wrong food. The food and... More

Welcome to Shakers Sports Bar and Grill in Ottawa, IL-home of great food, great spirits, and most all, great times. Family owned and operated since we opened in 2000, Shakers has that naturally welcoming atmosphere of fun and friendship no chain can compete with.

No other bar around offers the quality of fresh food from the grill like Shakers does, whether it be lunch, dinner, or that late night snacking we all tend to crave from time to time. And without ever charging a cover, Shakers also offers the best in live entertainment week in and week out, whether it be bands, bulls, or that ever-unquenchable desire to sing and dance your guts out with the courage only cocktails can summon. Shakers also has the best TVs in town to watch all the sports any fanatic can handle, from football to hockey to Nascar.

So if you've been looking for a reason to indulge your appetite for fun, friends, and fresh food, look no further. Shakers is just around the corner waiting to serve you with a smile and (maybe just as important) a cold one.
