Went for supper, with friends. Got the Pork chop dinner! So good! A must try! Great price, great service! Wasn't disappointed one bit. Staff always makes sure you are taken care of . Kenny and Sherm great bartenders. Dave and the wait staff always make sure you get everything you need! Well return!

I've been here quite a few times. If you go with someone who is a regular, the service is faster and better. The burgers are pretty good and the drinks are definitely strong. It's usually pretty busy so the atmosphere is quite loud. The bartender Michael M. is great at his job and very friendly. It's a good place if... More

Busy sports bar with good atmosphere. We arrived fairly late for a quick meal and had good burgers and draft lager. The service was friendly and efficient.

Stopped in for a drink. Big place with not much appeal. Not sure I would give it another try. Did not try the food but just stopped in for cocktails.

The bar area and the rest of the place for that matter have many TVs with audio out for easy viewing! Food was good and reasonable price with nice selection of beers. Kind of far down Moody street but worth the walk!

I think Shoppers is a great place to go after work on a Friday night, they have lots of TV's with sports games on them, their staff is really nice and there is plenty of space.
