    The price was high for the amount food we received. Drinks were extra and they ran out of desserts. We were also unaware the waitress would automatically add a 20% gratuity to our bill.

    The staff at Shift went above & beyond during our visit during a Sunday dinner service. When making the reservation we had a special request about where to be seated and the host seated us in an awesome location (thank you!). This helped one of us be much more comfortable and really showed us that they pay attention and care about the little things. He ordered a beer and I ordered the cherrywood smoked Old Fashioned. The drink was extra strong but I couldn't detect the smoke. We both did the Sunday Fried Chicken dinner special which includes 4 sides and a dessert for $19.99 each. We chose green beans, side salad, mashed potatoes & Mac&cheese. All of the sides were EXCELLENT and they came out in perfect portions. The chicken dinner allows refills on sides & chicken if you'd like. We don't eat that much and found that the servings provided were perfect for the 2 of us and without wasting any food. We asked for our dessert to go and our server was happy to oblige. The fried chicken was excellently breaded and cooked. Our server, we didn't catch her name, was gracious, timely and accurate at every step a long the way. What a great impression! It's a 30 minute drive for us but we'll happily be back soon. We're so glad we finally tried Shift.

    What a great place. Had the Chicken dinner on Sunday. When it was served it came with 2 large chicken breasts and 2 wings. Server said… “when you want more just tell your server” I couldn’t eat it all. Mashed potatoes were awesome, Cole slaw the best, biscuits so good.

    We went on a Saturday night early to meet friends for dinner. None of us realized based on the openTable page or Facebook that there was live music that early in the evening. We arrived 5 minutes before our reservation and had to wait 20 more minutes past our reservation time for a table. And then….the music started. It was so loud you couldn’t talk without screaming. Service and food were good but definitely won’t return since it is not a casual relaxing place for dinner. Would hope you will post that there is loud music so people understand it isn’t a place for socializing i.e. having a conversation. It was really ridiculous. When we left the place was almost empty at 9 pm on a Saturday night, which is when you would think a band would go on and the crowd who want to hear it (or go deaf) would be there?

    Food was pretty good. Service was insanely slow, however waitress explained that other servers had called in and they were very understaffed. They also had multiple 10+ parties come in with no reservation. Those poor people were running themselves ragged! It took over 30 minutes to get our cocktails and an hour and 15 minutes to get our food. I’m not holding this against them under the circumstances. I will go back and give them another shot. My food was good. Hubby’s was a little overcooked. Cocktails were excellent and the waitress comped our first round without us even asking or complaining.

    No special occasion- just taking family out for dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meal. From the fried pickles and huge pretzel for appetizer, to the dinner- everyone loved their food. Parking is a tight squeeze. Can park next door at the church or across the street (not at dollar general). Definitely need reservation to avoid a long wait. Great dining experience and we will definitely be back again!!
