About 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.

My steak and my colleague's steak were unremarkable and both under-cooked (how do you mess up two steaks?). They took them back to the kitchen to cook them some more. In a few minutes I had a slightly over-cooked steak and luke-warm vegetables.

I am a frequent visitor to Shula's but this trip may have made it my last. There was no hostess when we arrived, she had been delivering room service to the hotel attached. That was first indication this night was very understaffed. We chose to take a seat at the bar, one person behind bar for bartender, server, runner. Same employee we have seen numerous times, nice enough, but certainly not aware of the extended wait time to order, the dry mahi mahi delivered, the steak was fine ;), and the extended wait time to pay our bill. I can't recommend Shula's as it's not a seamless experience, nor a consistent meal. Sorry guys! not this time.

The restaurant was cold, a $38 Shula cut dinner was really rationed meaning I was served 5 asparagus and half big spoon of smashed potatoes. My wife got microwaved chicken Milanese, leaves and soggy cheese for 19 plus bucks. The waitress tried to make it right by giving us fries and an extra fudge lava cake for our anniversary. But on a 90 plus dollar bill. Its a never go again. Gave three stars, cause I'm being nice.

We were there to celebrate two birthdays. My wife asked if the restaurant did anything special for birthdays. One of the restaurant workers responded "yes, we give you a table". I took this as sarcastic. All they had to say was "sorry, we do not do anything for special occasions". I won't be returning.

The entire experience was depressing! 3 people at the bar and no one else in the restaurant except us on a Sunday evening. No waitress, just the bartender. My medium rare filet was served almost rare so I had to send it back. I should have gone to Delmonico's or Harry's Steakhouse. I will not be back

·Dined on September 23, 2017

The food was fair but, both dinners were lukewarm at best and my mashed potatoes were actually cold. Charged $1 extra for 4 asparagus. I don't care about the $1, but is an additional charge of one whole dollar necessary when a side is switched? No bread or rolls offered - No salad included.The more I dine out, I'm seeing more and more of this which I don't agree with. I had a Groupon Voucher. The tip (18%) was automatically added into the bill. I don't agree with it and felt insulted! I believe the amount added to my bill was $10.08? I would have left a $15 cash tip had it not been already added in!

I live in between Akron and Canton, over 40 miles away. I don't mind driving at all. The food was O.K., but I don't think I would make that drive again for a return visit. Sorry!

I used groupon to go here. To start off I ordered draft beer it was very flat. My wife ordered sangria, that was flat awful. The food we a ordered was mediocre at best. The steaks I saw ordered did not look very appealing. I have been to Shula s in Florida and have had great meals not sure what's going on in Ohio

Steaks good, but a little salty with the optional topping. Smashed potatoes good, but lukewarm. Veggies grilled nicley. Had to ask for water and bread; the latter was delivered with the entres.

OK overall. Steak prices competitive for a high-end restaurant.

We are frequent visitors to this location. First time ordering Salmon - blackened - excellent. Will be back for this dish in particular! Tip: Most entrees they will tell you include two sides. If you order the daily veggie medley it's included. All other side dishes are an upcharge $1-$2. The standard price of a side is $6. Heads up the Asparagus side is only 4 stalks :) The loaded baked is a great potato. All in all, a nice dinner. Tip: Dining room is always very cold, bring a jacket even in the summer months :) Nice staff.

Pedestrian steak house -

Average food in traditional steak house decor - nothing to write home about. Menu includes non-steak items - that's a plus. Portions are reasonable, sides are good, service was excellent. Quiet restaurant, the "stay on the table" items could use a good cleaning -

I had heard about this place from time to time. Thought I would give it a try, perused the menu online, and looked forward to the experience. It calls itself a "steak house" and, I must confess, it drew me there. What a disappointment, as far as steak is concerned. I had the strip steak. Maybe a 1/2+ inch thick, dry and average tasting at best. Truly, I have had a better, and larger, and thicker strip steaks at Applebees for about $10.00 less! This is not a steak house like John Q's in Cleveland used to be. However, my wife's meatloaf was good. The wedge salad was good and large enough for two, the wait staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, and the evening wasn't a total loss. We are going to try it for lunch one day, and see how the burgers are, but for the money, special evening dining is a much better value at the Burntwood Tavern in Brecksville, just down the road.

I am a frequent visitor to Shula's because I purchase a discount certificate from I-heart media. However, even with the discount, this visit was a disappointment. This time we sat in the bar area. Note, cocktails are excluded from the $50 voucher. Wine was $9, Beer $6.50 so right off the bat it's $20 with 18% automatic gratuity and tax. Our steak sandwiches were ok. Seemed light on the sandwich fixings, cheese and onions were light. Onion rings and baked potatoe side upgrades were really great. Will not likely be back there for a while.

hit Shula's before going to theatre downtown and it was much better than last visit with all the construction, cold temps inside, no fireplace etc...we ate with our coats on and so was everybody else. We were seated promptly right next to fireplace and ordered drinks, no apps and went right to our entrees. My steak was a tad over the medium I ordered but was fine nonetheless with good flavor, our server was quite helpful with the menu as every vegetable they had on menu were the veggies I happen not to like...oh well. My wife enjoyed her chicken dinner as well. A very quiet enjoyable dinner and that's what we were looking for.

My wife received an email from Shula's offering her a complimentary meal for her birthday. All went well until the bill arrived. We had two meals, one for $38, steak, mine and hers for $26, fish special . We agreed with all expenses except the $15.84 service charge and it was explained they were allowed to add this charge yet no where on the email did it state there would be any service charge. So my wife's $26.00 meal cost $15.84 so we actually saved $10.16 so forget the Complimentary Entree deal with Shula's. If we knew this beforehand we would have gone 5 miles to Pier W and not driven the 20 miles to Shula's.

Stay away at all costs. The menu online is not the menu in house. That is from Shula's. not Shula's 2. Ordered the nachos and calamari for appetizers. Received a bowl of stale chips, barely enough toppings to cover a dozen chips, marinara sauce from a can, and calamari from a bag. The bar menu is at least twice the size of the dining menu, not uncommon, and could be overlooked if not for the obtuse steak selection. Just three cuts to select from, and none being a porterhouse. My ribeye was cooked medium. Lightly seasoned as to be imperceptible, it was average at best. The "loaded" baked potato is not loaded at all. In fact, the "loading" of the potato consists of sour cream and butter which the unfortunate who ordered the side must apply. My meal came with a side of grilled, mixed vegetables, omitted at first.

Such a shame that Mr. Shula would lend his name to this shrine of mediocrity. Especially with Delmonico's, literally, at the doorstep.
