Whoever designed Shandong's sign did a good job. It's a fairly minimalist design but intriguing (just the name Shandong, with a Chinese character below it, and below that in smaller font size "Cuisine of Northern China") and after driving by it several times I had to try the restaurant.
The place is popular and often crowded but they have a sort of back room which turns out to be a cleverly designed outdoor area pretty well converted to semi-indoor dining, with fabric walls and plenty of additional tables.
But I still can't decide how well I like this place. I've been here three times, found it merely okay the first time, tremendously good the second time (it may've helped that I was with a large group that could order a lot of different dishes), and merely okay again the third time.
Sauteed green beans are a dish that I frequently order because practically every Chinese restaurant serves them, but some do a better job than others. Shandong does a merely okay job with them -- but on that second visit there were some dishes that we liked tremendously.
So it's a place worth trying out, but I can't give it an unqualified recommendation.
