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

Food was excellent. Great service for as crowded as it was. Beer prices are a little high but overall, very nice establishment.

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.

OK wings. Good kids menu. Always a crowd of people in a good mood which is nice. However that causes service to often be slow.

Shade offers delicious, American-style food, with a warm friendly atmosphere. Entrees are most generous, prepared with care, served with pride. Service is excellent and timely; all staff seems to really enjoy their mission, and that makes a difference to their customers.

This is literally a Roosters restaurant under a different name. From menu, to dinnerware to tabletops and decor...it is a Roosters. Primarily fried food with high school servers. Garners a crowd regularly for sports on tv. (Sidebar, I once was asked during the Daytona 500 to unplug my cell charger from the wall because the manager was coming and wouldn't... More

Most of their stuff is really good. We love their burgers and wings, with a cold beer it can't be beat.

Good place for a pit stop, we enjoyed our lunch and our server was thorough in checking for allergy-sensitive options. Nice ambience and a few small TVs if you're looking to catch a game.
