Shoeless Joe’s is one of the restaurants that I always see around but never been to. Last Sunday, I was finally there for a friend’s birthday gathering. The one we went to was on Hwy 48. The first time I saw the address, I was like… where the hell is Hwy 48?!?! Then I went on the Google maps and search for it. Oh, I should drive north on Main Street, then pass 16th Ave., it would be changed to Hwy 48. So, at around 7:00pm Sunday night, I drove up to Hwy 7, and then turned into the “Main Street” of Unionville, hoping that I could just go north and get to Hwy 48. Unfortunately, that was not the case. This “Main Street” was different from that “Main Street”!
Anyhow, I finally managed to get there at around 7:40pm – took a bit longer than expected. On a Sunday night, the place wasn’t as busy as it should have been. (Maybe we were kinda early – more customers started to come in after we finished our meal.) Looking at the menu, the only item that stood out was the Spring training steak, which is a 5oz cut of top sirloin, with potato on the side and choices of other side items such as mushrooms, seafood, etc.. 5oz portion seems to be just right for the ladies – or for lunch time. I didn’t order that coz I didn’t feel like steak for that night. What I’ve ordered instead was the Rib and Wing combo, with honey garlic ribs and original wings.
The service was not bad. The drink was huge! Besides that, if you go downstairs, you will see a video game arcade on the way to the washroom… which is kinda usual. I don’t know if all the Shoeless Joe’s are like that or this is a special one. After all Shoeless Joe’s is a Sport –themed restaurant. (Maybe that’s one of the reasons why I haven’t been there before? ‘Coz I’m not that sporty :p)
