We had a wonderful time here. This place has amazing food. The story and history of who Shy was and how Shy's Place came to be is unique and one of a kind. I have not been to a place like this. It really felt like home. Shy's hockey and baseball memorabilia is fascinating and brings you right down memory lane. I cannot wait to bring my friends and family here.
Excellent food and service. The food is fresh and flavourful, and portions are generous. The waitstaff were all friendly and attentive. We ordered the baked artichoke linguine and steak marsala linguine. The freshly-made pasta is fantastic. We enjoyed every bite. We will be back!
This has been one of my favorite places to work. Excellent management. Amazing food. And, wonderful clientele. I look forward to going to work every shift. I could not be happier.
