A word from Shula's 2 Steak and Sports @ The Doubletree by Hilton (Independence)
Shula's 2 Steak and Sports @ The DoubleTree by Hilton is a hybrid sports-bar-to-casual-dining with more of an upscale menu. With Shula's 2 we offer SHULA CUT® steaks from our Shula's Steakhouse brand in smaller portions, newly introduced Certified Angus Beef® cuts, and the Certified Angus Beef® brand as a standard for all Shula Burgers®. Newer, more popular salads and fresh seafood address all taste buds. Appetizers and sides are simple, yet complimentary to the menu items. The bar area (a.k.a. "The Lounge") becomes the place for socializing, with wine and martinis for both the business type and groups/individuals looking for a warm atmosphere. For private dining and special events, there is a great variety and flexibility with the menu items, including limited and all-inclusive limited menus. The restaurant's look and design consists of some memorabilia and pictures celebrating local sports heroes and celebrities, including a 72 Dolphin jersey and helmet.

    we went in late afternoon. the asparagus was an unusual yellow color, perhaps they used preserved rather than fresh. that is a a bit disappointing since at this time of year fresh would be abundant. also i ordered the sweet potato fries, smash potatoes arrived. i pointed this out to my server [we were her only table] and she returned after the fries were cooked. unfortunately, they had put sugar on them... i believe that i they are going to do this the server should mention it when you place an order. i was also disappointed, that with a filet dinner there was a charge for a topping of onions and mushrooms, not a side portion- really at a steak house? my steak was not hot we were the only ones seated in this section.

    Shula,s for my birthday dinner recently, i ordered the Texas tails which i have ordered in past visits and this serving was the best yet! The tenderloin tails were cooked a perfect medium and each piece was melt in your mouth tender, in addition to being a generous serving. The tails were served atop garlic mashers and i ordered onion rings in lieu of veg medley. My wife ordered catch of the day mahi-mahi sandwich which she enjoyed.

    We wanted dinner.i was sooo tired of the same hum drum scene (not gonna mention establishments). I suggested Shula's 2 which wasnt far from the house. Great wine list for starters..ordered entrees..we all chose the penne pasta with shrimp..just MARVELOUS... We will definitely return for this Quality experience and have a larger group. :-)

    My Mom had oral surgery just before Mother's Day so we had to put off a big meal out. She'd never been to Shula's 2 Steak and Sports, I'd never had a disappointing meal plus I had a Groupon. The stars aligned beautifully. We were well taken care of by Jessica and Amanda from appetizer: Crispy Ravioli to Steaks (one, NY Strip and one Filet), delicious sides and dessert of Apple Cobbler. The Groupon was cheerfully accepted and we were catered to as if we'd paid full price. Plus on the way out the Doubletree Check In desk offered us the famous chocolate chip cookies. Truly a sweet and special meal. We'll be back.

    As a group of 4 celebrating a birthday I was pleased to recommend Shula's 2 and particularly the Chicken Milanese!! Two of us had that, while the guys each had the special Red Snapper and the Shula's steak. We agree that some of their best food is NOT steak so please try almost anything on the menu! Using Open Table we were able to reserve the table of our choice and really enjoyed our evening. BTW, our waitress admired our completely cleaned plates although the portions are large.....it was that good!!

    The buffet was average, but my main complaint has to do more w/ Open Table. I booked this reservation through their special Mother's Day Brunch section of the website only to find out from my confirmation call from the restaurant that I had reserved a table for their regular weekend breakfast buffet. VERY MISLEADING, & VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

    My fiance and I went here to celebrate buying our first home. I didn't think the atmosphere was anything special but her side salad was of excellent quality, both our steaks were cooked EXACTLY how we wanted them which is hard to find and the vegetables/potatoes were great as well. The steaks had excellent flavor as well and my strip was on par with Flemmings. My fiance actually said the broccoli was some of the best she has had at a restaurant. I love when the cook brings the meal and asks us to cut into the steaks right in front of them to see how they are cooked b/c frequently I ask for medium and there is no pink in a steak and I feel horrible sending it back asking for a new one. We had an excellent server and great experience.

    My boyfriend and I have been wanting to try Shula's for a long time and I'm glad we got around to it! The food was fantastic (filet mignon, baked potatoe and steamed veggies for both of us)! It was cook to order (medium and rare). Our server was very friendly and kept our drink full. The restuarant itself was clean and in order. It was a little loud because of a large group by us but obviously that is not Shula's issue and good for them! Will be back!

    Dined on 4/19/2014
    I was on a date and had a coupon for $50 for which drinks could not be applied to. Therefore we had to order entrees that were the most expensive on the menu, such as the steak and fish we ordered. This is not the place I would have chosen to have a nice steak since the ambiance was more of a burger and wings place. The steak was ok, accompanied by some mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables, but probably not worth the $33. It was a 7:15 reservation on a Saturday night and the place was rather empty. The servers attitude seemed she was not interested in even being there let alone how we were enjoying our experience. It just seemed distant and not very engaging. Probably a great place for some beers and wings watching a game!

    My husband and I dinned here on a recent snowy Saturday night. We showed up a little early but were seated right away. The place was surprisingly busy despite the weather. Service was attentive and pleasant. Since this is a steakhouse we of course ordered steak. They were not cheap, but anyone who goes out knows what a quality cut of meat costs. We used a Groupon and the server didn't make us feel cheap (our bar bill made up for the savings!)

    I appreciate the ability to watch sports events in an upscale, yet very comfortable atmosphere. I will certainly return having been away from here for about five years because of the multitude of options on Rockside Road. The main dining room offers adequate TVs along with a cozy fireplace. The bar area offers more TVs and is more casual. All offer a great opportunity to have a conversation without being burdened by the usual noise of a sport bar. The steaks we had were all reasonably priced, very well prepared as requested, and of high quality. One of our guests had a burger and was very complimentary of its preparation and value as well. All meals offer veg's and potato and an accompanying salad is very reasonably priced.

    The menu contained many fine selections and the steak I ate was grilled just right. A restaurant employee requested that I cut my steak and inspect it for doneness and give it my okay. That was a first and a nice touch. We were in a party of 4 and all said their food selections were prepared to their liking. I would highly recommend this eating establishment. It is also easy to get to and near the interstate.

    I have been staying at the hotel for a conference and have dined in Shula's throughout our time. We had the same server two days in a row and she was amazing. She served on Wednesday lunch/Thursday dinner shifts. She remembered my friend drank tea and how she liked her portobello sandwich prepared! We felt so cared for by her. The staff team at Shula's are very nice and friendly! Thanks so much!
