Fod was pretty good. I had eaten here once before when it was smoking and the haze pretty much ruined dinner for me. Don't even remember the food from that visit.

This time, however, things were different. The steamed shrimp were very good. While I thought the crab and red pepper flavors clashed a little in the soup, my wife really enjoyed it. Her scallops were well-cooked and tasted great, as did the spinach risotto with lobster-infused cream sauce. My steak was cooked a perfect medium rare. Only down side of the meal was the upcharge to add "Oscar" to my steak was not inline with what it was. I expected Oscar--lump crab in a cream sauce. Turns out I just got a small dish of crab and asparagus. It frankly wasn't worth the $6.99 listed on the menu. Since I was only charged $4.99 maybe I didn't order what I thought I ordered. Disappointment was probably more from improper expecations on my part.

The waiter was very patient with us and provided excellent service. Our daughter has a milk and dairy allergy, so wife and I asked lots of questions about the ingredients. Those he didn't know he happily went to find out. I mentioned that I was going to share my steak with my daughter, so he went the extra step of having the asparagus cooked without butter as well as warning me that the mashed potatoes had dairy in them.

I'll definitely go back. Probably on Monday or Wednesday to take advantage of the half of steam shrimp special those nights. That should make for a very satisfying (albeit messy) dinner.

Pros: Non-smoking now; very good service and good food.

Cons: Be better if prices were a $1 or $2 less

We are frequent visitors to the restaurant?s half-price burger night on Tuesday?s, so we expected to have a good meal when we planned to have my mother ?in-law?s ninetieth birthday party at Shacklefords. The whole party was more than astonished by the superb meals served . Each meal was attractively presented, served hot and delicious. The waitress was efficient and very friendly. The whole experience was fantastic. Thanks Tripp and staff for making this a very memorable occasion for our guests.

Shackleford's provides a wonderful retreat for Far West Enders. The combination of an outstanding menu, great quality food and excellent service makes this a real find. And the prices are right, especially for the excellent cuisine! On our most recent visit we had an outstanding meal on the pleasant outdoor deck. At a nearby table, our waitress worked patiently with a customer to help her select a glass of wine that suited her mood. The specials she recommended were delicious and the White Chocolate Bailey's Creme Brulee was out of this world. A varied wine list by the glass and a comfortable, unpretentious interior make Shackleford's a great night out. Enjoy!
