I happen to be a big fan of there food. I have been going there for a couple of years now and fairly often. I think the owners need to make a few changes however. First they need to decide if they are going to be a real nice eating establishment or more of a bar / pool hall. I would lose the Horseshoe bar and move the bar possibly to the left as you come in the door,or some place other then the middle of the room, I would lose the pool table too. Which would allow you to seat more people. Parking is a huge problem. I would see if I could make a ramp and blacktop behind the building. Just food for thought. As amatter of fact I am eating there tonight.

WHERE DO I START. CAESAR SALAD WAS MADE WITH THE WRONG LETTUCE. COCONUT SHRIMP WERE BUNT AND TOUGH. MY DELMONICO STEAK WAS VERY BIG BUT WITH NO FLAVOR. IT TASTED MORE LIKE A BEEF ROAST THAN DELMONICO. WIFE HAD BEEF FILLET TIPS IN BURGUNDY SAUCE. TASTED MORE LIKE SIRLOIN. CHEDDAR CHEESE HASH BROWNS WERE VERY GOOD. SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. BUS BOY WAS EXCEPTIONAL. SEATS WERE VERY VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. OVERALL I WOULD GRADE THIS ESTABLISHMENT A 6.7 ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10. AND FOR ALL THIS I GOT TO SPEND $86 INCLUDING TIP FOR TWO DINNERS...........

My husband and I visited Shanesville this evening for dinner. I have to say that it was more then I expected. The food was GREAT!

6/25/05 We found the service to now be quite attentive @ the Shanesville Hotel.Most of the servers and bartenders are new. The food is excellent, with large portions. The steak night specials (tuesdays) are top of the line, I recommend the twin fillets with lump crab meat with bernaise sauce. Sometimes the food is a bit timely getting to the table, after considering how small the hotel is and how crowded it becomes, its understandable. Mr and Mrs James Wolfgang

At first glance at the menu you will be stricken by how expensive everything seems, especially considering the decor. It's your average barroom. Once you get your order & see the generous portions, you are likely to change your mind and recognize that it's actually a decent value. The main reason to check this place out is the hand-carved bar beef...they truly do a very good job with this right down to a hard to find excellent authentic au jus. No boullion cubes and water at this place. Avoid Saturday nights as there is absolutely no parking due to the hill-billy karaoke jamboree they seem to hold weekly. I've always had a difficult time trying to eat while being forced to listen to the guy who works at Turkey Hill doing his off-key rendition of "Takin' Care of Business". The service is also usually quite bad. If you can stand the smoke, then I'd suggest sitting at the bar. This way you'll be closer to your server because odds are good that the bartender will also be trying to wait on half the tables in the small dining area. This causes a problem for both those there for dinner and bar patrons. Essentially, it's a bar with above average bar food. If you know what to expect, then it's, for the most part, pretty OK.
As you are probably well aware, the restaurant situation in Berks is very dynamic. New restaurants open and old restaurants close on a regular basis. We need your help keeping this restaurant listing up to date. If you know of a new restaurant that isn't on our list, or a listed restaurant that has closed, we would appreciate it if you would let us know. Thanks!!
