This is definitely a place to go for atmosphere - outside patio is full on the weekend. A place to people watch and take out of town guests. A place to sit and sip adult beverages. The food is very average. Oh and definitely DON’T...More

I called Shady Grove and was told, "No". There is usually only live music at Shady Grove in the summer during the "Unplugged" series. This is the Shady Grove phone number: (512) 474-9991
