When Shanks is busy it's crazy and when it's not you could be the only person in the bar. Either way it's next to impossible to get service. When you wait 30 minutes for a drink you start brainstorming other things to do.

This place is huge, mini golf, basket ball, golf simulation stations, pool tables, bowling and on and on; however for such a big place should be staffed better. We went to play golf, didn't get service at our table to begin with, had to go to the bar to order our drinks. Then had to chase the waitress down when we wanted to order our food. Food was good but it wasn't warm when we got it. The golf was great, a lot of fun - service could have been much better.

Went to watch a hockey game on Monday night and it wasn't too busy which was nice. Had a pizza, it was good but it could have easily fed both of us there. Service was great and they had giveaways during the Flames game. Virtual golf had a big crowd gathered around, it looked like fun.

We sat there for about 15 minutes before the waitress came and took our drink order. Then it took another 10-15 minutes to get our drinks. Food was good, but service could have been better and faster.

I've visited a few bars in my time, and this one has so much potential squandered by an incompetent kitchen staff.

I LOVE BILLIARDS, MINI-GOLF, BOWLING AND THIS PLACE STILL SUCKS.

The food is not bad, but it takes forever to get to you, if the server is interested in doing her job, which is to sell you things. If you are not drinking you become invisible. It's how they know you won't be happy and tip. The food takes forever, the place is always packed and there is usually, three maybe four servers in a place the size of the northland walmart.

Someone in management is trying really, really hard to ruin something with unlimited potential. In the end, it is a lackluster sports bar with servers who don't really care. I could get that anywhere.

I suggest only going there if you really, really must have minigolf. I could understand that.
