My boyfriend and I ate at this place on our way back to our condo. I read reviews about this place before and so glad we decided to give it a try. Very woodsy and rustic decor, had a nice seat by the fireplace it was so cozy and very down to earth. The food was so delicious, I had the steak bits and the vegetables were so fresh and my boyfriend got a bacon cheeseburger with blue cheese and he loved it also. Plenty of good beer to choose from and it was a very quiet and laid back atmosphere. The waitress was very nice and accommodating. It was pretty quiet when we first got there but by the time we left there were more people sitting down to dinner. Also looks like a great place to sit down by the bar and have a few drinks. Would definitely recommend.

Visited this Pub on our way back to our Inn, we chose the house burger and it was lovely, served with crisps (chips), homemade coleslaw and a large pickle. To follow we had blueberry pie/apple pie, both were delicious.
Our waiter Clem, was very helpful and polite. As we left the pub it was just beginning to fill with locals, a good recommendation. We found both the food and service to be very good and priced well too.

During our 3 night stay in Jackson we ate at the Shovel Handle Pub on two occasions.
We visited it on our first night and were so impressed that we returned on our third evening. We ate sitting at the bar on both occasions - with views out over the mountain.
The food on both evenings was excellent, well cooked and well presented offering good value for money. There was a good selection of draught beers available and the wine selection offered good variety and value. The staff were friendly and helpful on both visits. On our 2nd visit there was live entertainment - a Country / Folk singer who was great. When we visit Jackson again we will certainly make a "bee line" for this pub.

Went to the Shovel Handle Pub after a long day skiing at neighboring Black Mountain. We were at the mountain skiing with several friends of our who are Ski Patrolers at the site. What a great experience!!!!.

We had enjoyed a huge order of Nachos covered with chili and cheese and several locally brewed beers. The food was outstanding and fairly priced. The brew selection was great and the server was helpful to us folks unfamilar with the local selections. After all why would you travel all that distance to have a beer you could get at home.

We loved the feel of this place, big open fire, high vaulted beamed ceilings and just a friendly rustic atmosphere. We plan on making a trip to the Shovel Handle a must stop every time we visit our friends
