    The food had alot to be desired. Steaks weren't cooked as asked. When they were recooked, the manager said she would take some off the tab for the wait. When you are eating after the rest of your party has eaten and they are sitting waiting on you, 2.50 is not much to take off of a 25 dollar meal. It was very loud in there for 7pm on a Friday and the wait staff was a joke. Running out of water numerous times. Will not ever go back or reccommend.

    When we arrived, we told the host we made a reservation online and he couldn't find us on the list. He made a big deal of it, even though there were only five tables being used. He looked and acted as if he had just done some type of illegal pick-me-up, my wife described him as wirey. He sat us next to the only window that wasn't clear, it was an older window that, from time, had turned foggy. Our server got 3 of our 4 drinks wrong, we all ordered sweet tea except for me, which was unsweet. My wife and friends ordered burgers, which they said was good, but my vegetable plate was juicy. Everyone working acted as if they were super busy, but again, there were only about 6 tables full. It was not enjoyable, we will not be going back.

    I had a great experience but I feel more appetizers should be added to the menu and maybe do a pairing with a certain drink.

    Things started out ok but went down quickly. Ordered soup which came after meal. Told waitress when meal came to cancel the soup but it came any way. The beef on the French dip was tough and over cooked. The burger was just ok. Fries are frozen and not house made. The French onion soup came out of a packet and was soooo salty. In fact, the au jus for the French dip tasted just like the soup. Just not a good experience. The waitstaff seemed to turn on us when we pointed out the soup came late. Their attitude was poor. Eat elsewhere....

    They were understaffed for the traffic in the restaurant. There was a sold out concert a block away. The hostess was rude. Our waitress did the best she could. We received our drinks in styrofoam cups. My chicken Caesar salad looked wilted and brown. I was told it was from the dressing. It looked awful. This was my second and last visit there. Paducah offers too many other options. Disappointing experience.

    We had reservations for 6 made on Open Table. We were told we had no reservation, and were told they had no table. I showed them my reservation confirmation which made no impact on the sour hostess. We went down the road. Stay away!!

    Good thing we made reservations, we were standing in line and the seemingly frustrated hostess "I'm only helping people with reservations" she marched us to a very dark cove with 4 tables across from the restrooms..I let that go since she was in a poor mood and we wanted to be on time for our concert. It was over 20 minutes before our waitress (Holly) took our order, so we decided to save time and ordered drinks, appetizers and the meal when she did show up. After another 20 minutes all she brought was my iced tea and told us the other drinks weren't ready yet. She forgot 1 of our meals and 1 appetizer but served the egg rolls to my brother in law as his meal, she brought his meal just about the time we were finished with ours.. very poor

    Had dinner, was just ok as far as the food goes, the waitresses and waiters were delightful and had a small group singing which was very nice and not too loud for the small area of dining in the restaurant. Sat out side on the walkway for our cocktails and was waited on immediately. They even brought out a doggie bone and water for our pet.

    My family and I went to Shandies for an Easter brunch...buffet had plenty to choose from, but nothing was that great...herb roasted chicken was dry, hot brown had burned places in it. Service was absolutely horrible...our waitress was working our table and a table all the way across the restaurant...WHEN we could catch her, we had to ASK for drinks...asked for sweetener and salt (neither was on the table)...finally had to get up and go ask another table for theirs. One of my family members ordered a plain cheeseburger, it came out with everything on it...sent it back and it came back without cheese. On top of that, the buffet price was $22/plate, it MAY have been worth $8, and that's pushing it. Only good thing was the dessert table.

    The food was amazing. The hostesses had my name spelled wrong so he couldnt find me listed.My server looked at me from the corner doing nothing for 15 min and the moscato she bought me was flat. I willnot let this ruin my return to Shandies its a great place overall.

    We went to Shandie's before a show at the Carson Center. It is a great place to go because it is within walking distance of the theatre. The food was excellent as well as the service.

  • Most Creative Food in Paducah

    I have dined all over the world in every kind of place imaginable. If you want a pleasant departure from the usual boring meat and potatoes food around Paducah, and you are tired of the amusingly pretentious "attitude" at Max's, Shandies is definitely your place. David, accomplished chef and owner, has created the most interesting and near gourmet food in the area. His food creations combine a unique cosmopolitan flair with "down home" appeal. Match the food with an inviting turn of the century setting, a well stocked bar, occasional entertainment and friendly attentive service, and you will make Shandies one of your favorite places for food and fun.

    The french onion soup was so salty you couldn't eat it, the waitress brought us side salads for dinner, when we ordered the dinner salad...first clue...If someone only orders a salad, either ask what size or guess that since that's all they ordered they might want the large salad! We called ahead to see when they started serving the dinner menu...we were told all day. We got there, and they don't even have a dinner menu any more....they have reduced to one menu (not what the show on the web page) and what we had decided we wanted wasn't even on the menu anymore! No one ever told us...

    This is the place to get burgers! Also tried the French onion Soup with Bourbon, which was really good too, but pretty spicy (they don't tell you that) My Dad doesn't like anything spicy (hot) and he didn't like it. Can't really taste any burbon in it, but it probably adds a hint of favor.

    Made a reservation for 5 pm but only one other table there. By the time we left at 6:45, it was busy. Their website and sign on window advertised Wine Wednesday...a bottle of wine and appetizer for $20. We were told that it was no longer available. The waitress was very nice and brought it anyway. Dinner food for me was grilled chicken breast...dry. Others had NY Strip and pork chop. They were good. It was a very cool night and the restaurant was airish and needed we needed a jacket to stay warm. Only one waitress for entire dining area. She was great but way overworked when it became busy. Overall, I would return.

    Shandies is an amazing place if you are wanting a good steak. The prices are reasonable for the amount of food you get as well! Some of the menu items are different but everything I have had there was excellent.

    I was so pleased to find Shandies, truly a gem in Paducah. The brunch was not huge - but every part of it was delicious. They make eggs to order, included with the brunch, and take that order when you are seated. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It was a good experience. Especially the creme brulee french toast...and the unbelievably good biscuits.

    We went for our 10th wedding anniversary. We were treated like royalty! When we asked the waiter to give a tip to the chef, the chef came out personally to ask about our dinner. The food is absolutely wonderful and there are plenty of choices. We cannot wait to go back!
