Wouldn't be my first choice

Dined on April 25, 2016

It wasn't very busy when we arrived, but the place was totally understaffed and we couldn't get refills and it took too long for our burgers to arrive...like 50 minutes for a burger. The waiter was sprinting through the restaurant, so he was trying but was set up for failure.

PASSING THROUGH

Dined on April 9, 2016

Husband & I were passing through Paducah, KY. Went on YELP which recommended this restaurant. This was 'Bar' food not dinner quality in the slightest. Certainly would not recommend for anyone who is used to dining in 5 star restaurants.

The food was wonderful and very nicely presented. Our server was not attentive, and the restaurant was not busy so there was no reason for her not to have taken better care of our table. Love the ambiance and it wads lovely watching out the window.

This was my first experience with Shandie's Sunday brunch. $18.99 per person, so go hungry! You will not be disappointed in the quality of the food. We ordered off the menu, and had the apple bourbon pork chop. Oh my goodness! What an excellent meal! The quality was worth the price.

Reunion of friends

Dined on November 8, 2015

Reunited with friends after 20 years at Shandi's. I had reservations and was seated promptly. I was alone awaiting friends arrival. Took about 15 to get a drink. After friends were seated, it took another 15 to get their drinks. Waitress took our food order and we asked for another drink. I recieved mine but the others had to wait about another 15 mins. Service is much to be desired. After dinner we went upstairs to listen to live music, which we were charged $5.00 a piece. After 30 minutes they quit charging....really!! Two bartenders at the bar and it was almost impossible to get a drink. The ambiance was ZERO! GOOD MUSIC but all the lights were left on. I used to be a regular at this restaurant years ago.( CC Cohen). Actually worked there in my younger years and it was great!! It could be a wonderful place again, but the wait staff needs to be properly trained.

The burger!!!!

Dined on October 28, 2015

My husband and I were in Paducah for a bass tournament and I was looking for a great place to eat with some 'history' and what a gem we found! Shandies was great and it is in a great spot and the food was awesome! My husband said his burger was the best burger he has Ever had! That's impressive! He's hard to please!!! We would go back again and again!

1st Time but not the Last

Dined on October 24, 2015

Very good dinner and service. Nacho Mama's Fried Won Ton is a great appetizer for a group. Two of us shared the appetizer and the meatloaf dinner, and we were stuffed. Both dishes were excellent. Only downside, no chilled glasses were available for the beer. Will definitely be back.

Poor service but excellent food

Dined on September 7, 2015

We weren't sure about this place since we had to wait almost 15 minutes to even be acknowledged by a hostess but the food made up for it! I think they were understaffed due to being Sunday evening on Labor Day weekend & the staff that was there were worn out from being so busy. We would still recommend this restaurant for their delicious food!!!

A whim that paid off

Dined on August 8, 2015

Stopped in on whim while visiting from out of town. It was one of the restaurants recommended by the hotel clerk and it did not disappoint. Food was good, although the tuna was a little over cooked which dried it out a bit...ask the chef for rare and you may be happier. The steak was good. Wine list wasn't huge, but we found good quality. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the horse and carriage tours go by. It's a short walk to the river too so you can "walk off dessert"....always a plus. We would visit again.

Good Find

Dined on June 26, 2015

My wife and I enjoyed our experience and will diffidently be returning. Staff was friendly and food was prepared quickly. We enjoyed fried green tomatoe crips as an appetizer, a different take but very good. We both had burgers, I had their mac and cheese. The burgers were cooked exactly the way we wanted and were delicious. The mac and cheese was awesome. Don't pass up the opportunity to visit Shandies.

Dined on April 5, 2015

The Sunday Brunch Buffet was very disappointing. Service was adequate, hard to say since waiter just had to bring us drinks. The buffet itself was ONE 8-foot table of food and a smaller table of desserts. There was not a good selection of dishes. Food was cold and desserts were not replenished after several guest had gone through. A half-eaten smashed cake is not appetizing. Maybe the food on the regular menu is better. Even though we were not impressed with the quality of the buffet, we had considered coming back to try their regular menu until we received an $80 bill. There is no way that buffet was worth $24.99 a person, won't be coming back.

First Visit

Dined on December 20, 2014

Over all was an okay visit. The only problem we had was our ribeyes where ordered med-well and when they arrived at table they where cold to the touch (like they had been sitting in back and not cooked to order) and we are not people that complain so we ate a little of them and took the rest home to heat up and enjoy then. the sides on the other hand where amazing. the mac and cheese was by far my favorite. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

wouldnt reccommend

Dined on October 25, 2014

The food had alot to be desired. Steaks weren't cooked as asked. When they were recooked, the manager said she would take some off the tab for the wait. When you are eating after the rest of your party has eaten and they are sitting waiting on you, 2.50 is not much to take off of a 25 dollar meal. It was very loud in there for 7pm on a Friday and the wait staff was a joke. Running out of water numerous times. Will not ever go back or reccommend.

Meh

Dined on September 27, 2014

When we arrived, we told the host we made a reservation online and he couldn't find us on the list. He made a big deal of it, even though there were only five tables being used. He looked and acted as if he had just done some type of illegal pick-me-up, my wife described him as wirey. He sat us next to the only window that wasn't clear, it was an older window that, from time, had turned foggy. Our server got 3 of our 4 drinks wrong, we all ordered sweet tea except for me, which was unsweet. My wife and friends ordered burgers, which they said was good, but my vegetable plate was juicy. Everyone working acted as if they were super busy, but again, there were only about 6 tables full. It was not enjoyable, we will not be going back.

Not worth your time

Dined on August 3, 2014

Things started out ok but went down quickly. Ordered soup which came after meal. Told waitress when meal came to cancel the soup but it came any way. The beef on the French dip was tough and over cooked. The burger was just ok. Fries are frozen and not house made. The French onion soup came out of a packet and was soooo salty. In fact, the au jus for the French dip tasted just like the soup. Just not a good experience. The waitstaff seemed to turn on us when we pointed out the soup came late. Their attitude was poor. Eat elsewhere....

Dined on May 18, 2014

They were understaffed for the traffic in the restaurant. There was a sold out concert a block away. The hostess was rude. Our waitress did the best she could. We received our drinks in styrofoam cups. My chicken Caesar salad looked wilted and brown. I was told it was from the dressing. It looked awful. This was my second and last visit there. Paducah offers too many other options. Disappointing experience.

Good Food VERY Poor Service

Dined on May 18, 2014

Good thing we made reservations, we were standing in line and the seemingly frustrated hostess "I'm only helping people with reservations" she marched us to a very dark cove with 4 tables across from the restrooms..I let that go since she was in a poor mood and we wanted to be on time for our concert. It was over 20 minutes before our waitress (Holly) took our order, so we decided to save time and ordered drinks, appetizers and the meal when she did show up. After another 20 minutes all she brought was my iced tea and told us the other drinks weren't ready yet. She forgot 1 of our meals and 1 appetizer but served the egg rolls to my brother in law as his meal, she brought his meal just about the time we were finished with ours.. very poor

We had reservations for 6 made on Open Table. We were told we had no reservation, and were told they had no table. I showed them my reservation confirmation which made no impact on the sour hostess. We went down the road. Stay away!!

Had dinner, was just ok as far as the food goes, the waitresses and waiters were delightful and had a small group singing which was very nice and not too loud for the small area of dining in the restaurant. Sat out side on the walkway for our cocktails and was waited on immediately. They even brought out a doggie bone and water for our pet.

Won't go back...

Dined on April 20, 2014

My family and I went to Shandies for an Easter brunch...buffet had plenty to choose from, but nothing was that great...herb roasted chicken was dry, hot brown had burned places in it. Service was absolutely horrible...our waitress was working our table and a table all the way across the restaurant...WHEN we could catch her, we had to ASK for drinks...asked for sweetener and salt (neither was on the table)...finally had to get up and go ask another table for theirs. One of my family members ordered a plain cheeseburger, it came out with everything on it...sent it back and it came back without cheese. On top of that, the buffet price was $22/plate, it MAY have been worth $8, and that's pushing it. Only good thing was the dessert table.
