First I would like to say this place on the outside is amazing to see it is huge! My husband and I drove two hours from Ohio to come and see it- we are kinda medieval time nuts. :) Anyhow it was very exciting to be driving through the middle of nowhere and see a huge castle! This thing is... More

The food at Shakespeare's is always preparec beautifully with fresh ingredients, but the atmosphere is what makes this a great romantic date spot. The interior reminds you of an old English castle, featuring tapestries and shields. Unusual menu options, including wild game in season, and decadent desserts mean you'll want to be hungry when you arrive.

My boyfriend took me to Shakespeare's for Valentine's Day as a surprise! The atmosphere, staff, food, and experience were all perfect!

This restaurant has had some food challenges in the past and has overcome them. The food is very good and the menu has many interesting choices. The service was great and who doesn't like eating in a castle. I had lobster ravioli and it was delicious.

No need for your best royal garments, but you may want to dress up for this atmosphere just for fun! The castle atmosphere is EVERYWHERE! From the minute you enter, the reception staff and the then the wait staff are treating you like the royalty that you now are. We had a party of 17 for the Sunday Brunch ($16.95)... More

I have been here for lunch, dinner, visiting at the bar and large gatherings upstairs in the banquet facility. The food is always good. You can dress in jeans or suit and tie. Does not matter. You are in a castle!

Very good meal, unique setting. very attentive staff. The castle setting was quite different . The surroundings outside were very beautiful. It was late October an the leaves were beautiful. There was a wedding reception that afternoon and that made our meal special.

The restaurant and pub are housed inside a commanding looking castle which is really well done. It's on the property of a golf course called Old Stonewall. We were there at night so it would be best to see it in the daylight, but inside was warm and inviting with lots of dark wood from floor to ceiling, suits of... More

We were one of only two tables seated at 5PM for dinner. Waited over 8 minutes for someone to even approach our table to get the drink order. Server did not tell us her name, did not welcome us and did not even bother to go over dinner specials or daily soup until after being asked. Poor, poor. This place... More

We stopped by the Pub in Shakespeare's after playing a round of golf (great course!) and had a very enjoyable meal. I ordered the almond crusted chicken salad. It was delicious with a large piece of chicken, and cranberries with raspberry dressing. My husband had the gyro flatbread. It had pieces of lamb, onion, feta and mozzarella cheese on flatbread....
