We ate at Shakers on a recommendation from our hotel. They recommended the seafood, so that is what we ordered. The seafood was very well cooked. We had the seafood platter, catfish filet, shrimp, oysters. The fish was very tasty and cooked to perfection. My husband tried a flight of beer and really enjoyed that.

This restaurant was fairly basic, but it had good variety and the food was decent for the price. They had a decent selection of local craft beers, and you could keep an eye on football games if you took advantage of the open seating in the bar area.

This visit was not their best effort, and I know they can do better....First what did go right: 1. Cobb Salad was a hit 2. Chicken Finger platter seemed well made, tasty and sufficient for the smaller serving 3. Service with Emilee was ok, she tried to make up for some organizational mistakes, this was appreciated. Then several misques this... More

We had dinner before a show at the Berglund Center. It was delicious. We had eaten here last year before a show as well and then stopped in for dessert after the show. This year we did the same!! Highly recommend this restaurant! The shrimp were amazing!

We have never had to wait to be seated at Shaker's. With a party of ten, we are always immediately seated. We LOVE this place for that. We have been here fresh from the hospital, on a knee-scooter and all, and they go out of their way to accommodate a special needs person. There are ramps and easy access areas,... More

We were seated promptly and served with a smile, gladly took the 10% off that was offered from the hotel. We would come back gladly when next in the area.

I really wanted this one to be better than it was. Should have known better when we walked right in, after seeing lines out the door on the first 3 restaurants we tried on a Friday night. Our server was very good, and that was the highlight of the night. We ordered onion rings for an appetizer, which were thin,... More

Nice appearance inside and out and good food. All portions were large and we left with take home boxes. The chicken wings were a huge hit with everyone. Our waiter was average, he did his job, but seemed to be just going thru the motions. We would visit again.

Apologizes for the subpar service you received. This is not traditional of our servers and we constantly preach the importance of not being just an order taker and to make your guests experience a great one. Our wings are my favorite in town (a biased view of course but hard to find a traditional hot wing that matches ours). Thanks... More

Our first time. We stayed at the Comfort Inn and were told we would get a 10% discount at several of the local restaurants. We decided to try Shakers. I ordered the shrimp and a house salad. My husband ordered a chicken dish. We loved it. Great waitress. Nice wine and beer selection. Food was prepared well, well seasoned.
