I stop in at Shoeless quite often and usually with a friend or two. The atmosphere is always as we like it with the game we are looking for on or easy to access. At any given time there are always regulars in and everyone is known by each other. The food is mouth-watering delicious and the draft beer is... More

Family visited and what a great experience. Saw some big music stars and we were treated like ones. Our server was Eva and she was so bright, smiling, very professional, and efficient. Thank you for making our experience a great one. See you all next year. I forget the hostess' name. Everyone made it a great visit.

If you want to watch football, this is the place! Also a great place for happy hour - great food and drink specials. Super bartenders Kathy and Sue and the gang.
