My group (4 diners) met at Shooter's on Friday. I wanted the lobster special but that was sold-out, so I ordered the prime rib, which I've ordered before. The prime rib remains outstanding! We also enjoyed the nachos.

We're fans, and it's a favorite when we want a quick burger & fries and a good brew. Good prices. On our last visit we decided to sit outside for the first time but won't sit there again. There is street noise and the smoking area is literally right there. Inside is nice - updated not long ago. We'll be back - but will sit inside.

Our Sunday got away from us; now what to do for dinner? We were going to grill up burgers, but no one went to the store. Never fear, Shooters is here! Consistently very good service, excellent wings and burgers, and respectable wine and draft beer selection. Did I also mention appealing daily specials and 1/2 price wine on Sundays? What's not to like? The only thing for me is the tightly packed tables in the center section of the restaurant. Pull out one four-topper from each side and allow us more room, please!

the ribs are the special on Thursday nights. They are amazing, just fall off the bone, not overly fatty, and seasoned wonderfully!
The mac and cheese is a wonderful side dish also!

Were a little skeptical as we walked in for our first time this weekend, but the food and service were great. It's a great casual spot for hearty portions of good American food. Chili nachos were super. Jambalaya is good too. Hand-cut fries are great!!

the Burgers and sweet potato fries are great! I love the salads and the ribs are the best around. They have daily specials that are always a treat!

My family and I saw the advertisement for the Valentine dinner special two weeks ago and the flyer never stated that it started at 5:30pm. So my reservation was at 4:45pm and we had to wait because the kitchen wasn't ready for early reservations. They had plenty of people in staff to get the meal and restaurant ready before customers arrived for the Valentine rush. They also had a computer system to view the time of arrivals, therefore there was no excuse for their lack of preparation.

Shooter McGee's is a neighborhood gem which has been around for many years. The food is what I would describe as "really good down home". Not fancy, but well prepared and tasty.

Prices are very fair, and portions are hearty. If you are looking for a nice cozy place to have lunch or dinner, you can't go wrong with Shooter McGee's.
