Some friends and I visited this restaurant since we had never been there. The waitress was very attentive. She got our drinks right away and asked if we were ready to order. We arrived at 11:30 so they weren't busy. We ordered and she was pretty good about answering. Then it was over 30 min before we got our food,... More

My husband's fish tacos were really tasty and my grilled chicken salad was very tender and marinated nicely. Our experience this time, on a Monday, was great. They were not packed for lunch. I caution everyone about the flooring; very slippery. The ceiling fans made the place too cold. Some of the tables and chairs wobble. Waitress Taylynn was excellent,... More

have eaten here numerous time & almost always satisfied. The salads are great. My favorite is the Italian. The wings are great with a variety of sauces. Don't care for their pizza. Good place to watch sport .

The food here is great. The Philly Cheesesteak and fish tacos are fantastic. A great selection of food and beer. I would suggest going before 5:30 because it tends to get busy especially on Friday and Saturday.

Tasty food, nice 50's style atmosphere, good prices, and the pleasing staff make this place hard to beat. Everyone from small children to old geezers will be satisfied.

They have a gluten sensitive menu in the restaurant. They need to post it on line too. I live in CW.

Have dined in with family at Shades numerous times. Food is always good. Enjoy the atmosphere as well. It is down town and have had an issue getting parking at times, but in general its not an issue. Pizza is pretty good, but they have an extensive menu as well. Would give location a 5 but service is a little... More

We visited this place for the first time about a month ago. It was a nice place with the feel of Roosters but not as loud and busy. The food was just "okay". I got a french fry dish that included steak meat and cheese over fries. It came out cold and the meat was tough and chewy. My husband... More

The service is impeccable. The entire wait staff are so friendly and attentive. The food is typical American fare from burgers, hot dogs, subs and pizzas, but served in large quantities.
