“Amazing food and service”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I love this restaurant and would highly recommend people to visit The Shakey Restaurant when they visit Hunter Valley. The food is reasonably priced and delicious and the service is attentive, personable and friendly.

I had the barramundi for main, some sort of chocolate bombe for dessert and a beautiful glass of semillon.

You will need to have your own car to drive to this restaurant, though not difficult to find but a GPS would definitely help as not much road lights that would lead you to where it is.

I love the Shakey Tables because of my complete service experience, and as a travel agent and do weddings and group bookings I would highly recommend this property/restaurant to my clients.

“Good food and service but”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Beautiful food and personal service but shame about the large loud group with lots of kids running around. I know business is business but it spoilt our night.Staff were sympathetic and placed us as far away as possible but that was beside the kitchen!

“Great food & service”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We tried Shakey Tables on recommendation from our motel. We enjoyed 3 courses with matching wines. Service was excellent. The restaurant itself is quirky but it was definitely worth the trip.

“Best dinner on our trip”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We tried Shakey Tables for our last night in the Hunter on a recommendation. The ambiance is lovely and the personal service is great.

We all enjoyed three courses of delicious food. The desserts are definitely worth writing home about. We also had the estate wine, which was very nice.

The service wasn't super speedy - we were having a good time so it didn't bother us, but you probably wouldn't want to come here if you were in a rush.
