“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013 via mobile

Was there on a Sunday for lunch. Service was awful. Waiting for drinks forever. Ordered one meal seperate / after others and never even Rec'd it. Entertainment was good. I am a generous tipper by would never have left the 18% gratuity that is automatically to your bill.

“Great atmosphere, but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here for many years, but never because of the food. The atmosphere is great and watching river traffic and people make it a fun place. The bad news starts with parking. Shooters doesn't own the lot, so it can cost $10 to park if there happens to be a concert at the nearby Pavillion. Street parking is impossible to find. We were seated within 15 minutes, which was good on a Saturday evening even though it was quite busy. Our server, Eileen, was the highlight of the evening. She had to chase down silverware so we could eat our appetizer, calamari, which was mediocre at best. We shared the strip steak, which was actually pretty good. But it arrived without a steak knife, which Eileen again had to chase down for us. She even had to hunt up the flavored vodka for my wife's drink.
So in spite of all this, we still come back for the unique atmosphere of the river, views of the city and sunsets which are fabulous, and the people watching.

“Nice location but lacking in service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

The location is the only good thing about this place. We waited forever for a waitress to wait on us out on the deck...and it wasn't even busy. There were 2 waitresses on the entire deck. The food was average until I found a spider in my salad. Blah :( It's a little pricey too....we didn't have any alcohol, just sandwiches and fries, 2 waters, 2 pops and the bill was over $60.

“A giant disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012


1. Plenty of spaces to sit ranging from inside to numerous outside spots.
2. If you get here a bit earlier and are going to Nautica you can avoid the parking fee and also get out a lot quicker than the cars in the lot directly next to Nautica.

As far as positive, that is all.


1. VERY slow bar service. They were completely understaffed and we actually had to go to every bar to find the bottle of wine we were looking for because the bartender wouldn't do so and neither would the manager. Unacceptable.

2. I ordered a coke and she also gave one to my friend who did not order one. She said, "here, I got one for you too". She then charged us for 2. Again, unnaceptable and dishonest practices right there.

3. Our friends shared a buffalo chicken pizza and got charged the price of the pizza + $4 for chicken.....it's a chicken pizza, figure that out. It took forever to get it fixed and then they couldn't even show them the first transaction was voided. The bartender than just walked off mid conversation. Such a mess.

Food and drinks: NOT WORTH IT. The moscato is disgusting, the beer list is lame- not even Guinness?? And the pizza we ordered was far from good.

OVERALL: Maybe a place to stop pre-concert because of convenience but overall, I'd avoid at all costs.
