This is the second or third Shoeless Joe's I have visited. This one was as good as the others. Always good for ribs.

Not my favorite spot as it is very noisy and food only okay. I still go for a change but each time it remains just okay.

Absolutely ridiculous service and lackluster food. We made a reservation with a large group, were assured that they would have extra servers ready. It was over 1h 45min when the last person got their food. We waited over 30min just to get drinks? The servers mixed up orders, and quite honestly didn't seem to care. One server was wearing clothing... More

Came in with my family and the hostess' were very friendly. Our server whose name started with D forgot how to spell it; was nice and friendly and she was patient with the younger ones while deciding what they wanted. Everyone enjoyed their food it was pretty decent - nothing spectacular. The drinks however took forever to come out, but... More

Came for lunch in the summer and sat on the patio. Food not good at all, and wow could the server have been confused at where she worked? Her attire was embarrassing everything hanging out from the top and bottom. As well as kids being there too. We have not been back and don't plan on it.

The food isnt the greatest. The service is not prompt or very pleasant. Price is high for what you get. I will not be back

My wife and I visited this location for the first time and were impressed with the service and menu. My chicken tenders were good but not very tender but the fries were perfect. My wife's salad was delicious but too much rice. $50 for lunch seems a bit much. $3 for iced tea is a ripoff.

Service was acceptable, food was "if it was any better it would have been mediocre" I've eaten here before and didn't have expectations other than "meh" so in that regard it didn't disappoint. I know with the right cooks, the right menu, the right training, the right management the food could be SO much better. I would never "choose" to... More

Restaurant was clean and service was quick and food was pretty good. Was a perfect spot to stop to get off a busy 401 for a bit.

I've been to other locations but the food and drinks at this one don't seem to keep up with the taste of other locations. I'm happy to have them close by but it's not as good as the downtown locations I used to frequent.

Thank jibs
