Talking about sports, like winning the lotto and undergoing surgery, goes better with a cold beer. Make every hour happy hour with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of American style fare and drinks at Oliver Shakewell's on 4th Street.
Oliver Shakewell's combines traditional American dining with a full-scale, television-stuffed sports bar. Those afflicted by hunger are treated via immersion therapy and immediately dunked in a veritable flood of food choices. The sprawling menu contains over 125 different items. Starters include the likes of loaded mini pierogies ($6.49), sautéed with onions, topped with mixed cheese and bacon, and served with sour cream. Appetites thus whetted, diners can move on to specialty entrees including chicken giovanni ($14.99), chicken breasts sautéed in marsala wine, topped with prosciutto, and covered in melted cheese. Shakewell's also offers house-smoked barbecue including the baby back ribs ($19.99) slathered in either the Yukon jack honey or original barbecue sauce. Burgers, sandwiches, grinders, and other slices of American cuisine are served up to hungry guests (most entrees are between $9.95 and $14.95). Those desirous of beer or spirits while eating may take advantage of the full bar or ask a Ghostbuster out on a date.
Whether sipping or chewing, customers have two choices as to where ingestion will take place: a cozy, road sign-decorated dining room or the separate sports bar. Patrons worried that sports teams will disappear if not constantly observed can take solace in the 22 available 27" televisions and three 48" plasma screens spread about the establishment. A jukebox and widdy dartboard are also available for multimedia entertainment.
