Food was good but not anything special. Way overpriced. Very small menu for food. If you are looking for a bar with a little bit of food it is good. Family of 4, no alcohol, $58 before tip. Love the looks of the place though!

The fresh wild caught salmon was amazing! Salads were fresh and sides were very tasty. The fresh hand cut fries were my boys favorite. They also enjoyed the burger and the fresh handmade chicken strips. My husband had the grilled chicken sandwich that he said was the best he ever had. The coleslaw is also top-notch. My sister-in-law had the street tacos and she said they were super yummy. I like the variety of the menu. Lots of good options.

The street tacos are really good. We were highly disappointed to show up, order the buffet, and go up to get food, only to find out they had cancelled the seafood buffet we were expecting.

The food was amazing we had the all you can eat wings. Our server was great! The only issue was the band they were good but it was very loud and hard to have a conversation. We ate then ended up going outside where it was not as noisy.

Our waitress was very nice and attentive. I also really appreciate Shift’s accommodations for food allergies. It’s hard for me to eat out at times, but they have a good amount of options.

Our server was good, although she was super busy! The food was tasty and prices were totally reasonable! The atmosphere was upbeat and fun. “Real Live Humans” was the live entertainment and they were great! A slice of hip right in the middle of Bright! We will be back!

This was my first time at The Shift, and I will not be going back. The food was overpriced, dry and flavorless. It arrived in shifts. There were 6 people in our party, and two people received their food, then 10 minutes later 3 more people received their food, and 15 minutes later someone came and said they were sorry that the other person's food hadn't arrived at all. They had ordered a hamburger. Of the six meals, one was decent but very expensive (the buffet), three were just average, one was below average and one was very good. The waitress did bring us a plastic, beer pitcher of water early on, because it was so busy. The manager did give the one person complimentary meal tickets, because she didn't get her meal until we were all done eating. The noise was so loud that I could barely hear the person beside me. I expected so much more, and was very disappointed with the entire experience.

Cam e in just past the lunch rush and it was empty, so we received quick service. We had an arrangement of a couple of appetizers with main courses including a salad, grilled chicken, burger, and a steak. The food was excellent. A big plus for me was their selection of spirits, specifically a bottle of Eagle Rare Bourbon, that was absolutely fantastic. I will definitely be coming back for the bourbon and the food.

Enjoyed the Sunday brunch very much. Food was fresh and hot and they were right on top of keeping the serving trays full. Omelet and waffle stations were a nice touch.

My cousins were in town for the weekend so we thought we’d try Shift for brunch. It was easy to reserve a table & the hostess greeted us with a smile. This was our first time eating brunch here & it did not disappoint! Drinks were reasonably priced & delicious. The food was the star though. A waffle station, & an omelette station! Plus buffet style eggs, ham, bacon, potatoes, fruit cobbler, etc.The meal was awesome!! We will definitely be back.

Shift definitely did not disappoint on Mother’s Day...they were very crowded and busy, and there was a line for the buffet, but the food and service was so good that we didn’t mind. I think they did a great job handling the craziness, and we will be back for both other brunch-type holidays, as well as for lunch, dinner and drinks. Kudos Shift!

We visited on a very busy day and it seemed like the serving staff and the kitchen were overwhelmed. It was a buffet and some of the items were out and were never replenished. It was very crowded and extremely noisy. All of the food we had was decent but the server did a poor job. Didn't even greet us just asked how many people were eating and then left. Also the machines they use to ring in orders is ponderous and she never looked at us. Just punched orders into the machine.

Excellent brunch, with good service. We were there at 9:30 and it wasn't crowded at all. Our server (Jenna) was very attentive without being over-bearing. Buffet options were good, and the dessert table was stocked with plenty of options. Only suggestion I would make would be to have a few more non-breakfast items on the buffet.

Food was fresh and good and it is nice to have more local restaurants/no chains however the ambience / seating / furniture did not match what I call dining out.....regardless of the want for an upscale casual and retro attempt atmosphere....nobody wants to sit on cafeteria/banquet table and chairs when your eating your 39/40$ steak dinner and 12$ cocktails. I travel all over the USA and most recently Atlanta and LA - my recommendation is add a little more quaintness to the open floor dining and do an area review of common pricing/menu items to "somewhat" be competitive....its good to up the scale but you need to deliver the WOW!

Went for dinner with kids on trivia night. Food was very good, trivia was fun. Service was excellent. Only issue was my son's chicken tenders seemed a little over-fried. Otherwise it was fun, we will go back.

My family dined with shift tonight to also participate in Star Wars trivia night. What a great addition to the dining experience!. I think there were 10 groups participating in this event and everyone had a great time! The food was outstanding as always. I had the salad with wild salmon, my husband had the burger special one of my boys had the famous street tacos and my other boys had burgers and broccoli. Jenna was our server and she was the best! We were all extremely satisfied. We will be back!

We only had beer & the selection was good, but more beer is always better. Our appetizers were ok. We had the candied bacon, which I thought was good. My wife, not so much. Not crispy enough, & not enough “candy” flavoring. Our friends had the pretzel, which was very good, but instead of coming out on the pretzel stand, or whatever it’s called, it came out on s plate. No biggie though. Our entrees we’re pretty good. The service was slow, our waitress was nice though. I think they were too busy & understaffed. I will definitely go back, but might wait a few weeks to let them get some bugs worked out.

There were eight of us dining and all of our meals were outstanding. I had the fillet that was amazing!!..cooked perfectly to my medium temperature request. Three of my friends had the codfish special that was unbelievably delicious. There was also a scallop special that was served over a Parmesan risotto that we all tried and it was absolutely phenomenal. I love all the healthy side options that are available! I had the steamed broccoli and a house salad. The biggest rave at the table though was the fresh cut fries. And to top that off, the atmosphere is wonderful!!..updated Decour in a comfortable environment. We will be back!

This was our first visit to SHIFT. We went on a recommendation of a friend and we were pleasantly surprised!! This gives us another reason to take drives to and through Indiana.

Our street tacos were fabulous....good wine selection and beers were cold!

The chef personally came to our table at the end of our meal to see how everything tasted. So nice!

We will be back!
