“One of the best sports bars in Oakville!”
Review of Shakers Smokehouse

Shakers Smokehouse
Ranked #154 of 513 Restaurants in Oakville
Price range: USD 7 - USD 15
Description: Like many other Canadians, we love southern barbecue and almost always eat it when we travel to the US. Even with its incredible popularity we had trouble finding quality authentic BBQ locally. So when we decided to revamp our menu, we knew that a true southern smokehouse was the way to go. We took our staff and ventured to the heart of BBQ country in Southern Illinois to perfect this culinary style and learn from the most decorated pit master in the world: Mike Mills. We worked with Mike and his staff to develop our own unique recipes for rubs and our own signature sauces. We invested in a custom smoker that was hand built by Ole Hickory Pits, the #1 builder of smokers in the world. Our smoker can perfectly smoke over 100 full racks of ribs in a single run. At Shakers Smokehouse we smoke the highest quality meats using local fruit wood at low temperatures. Our goal is to provide the best BBQ in Canada within a unique, comfortable and friendly atmosphere.

Great place to watch the NFL on Sundays or any sports event! The BBQ food is outstanding, try the brisket, you'll be back for more!

Great bbq in Oakville. I go once a month. Everyone I take there loves it to. Great bartenders also. They do a great bbq turkey for American thanksgiving.

Have had many good meals from here.... today was not one of them.

Fish had way too much batter on it , cooked on the outside, definitely not on the inside.

You can tell from my previous reviews I'm a fan of this joint. The BBQ really is the best in southwestern Ontario, and the service is friendly. Tonight the wife went with the brisket sandwich, sweet potato fries and slaw. The brisket is moist and tasty, generously heaped on a chewy bun. The serving of fries, however, was on the skimpy side (and we paid $1 extra for them), prompting a reorder which was quickly and generously supplied at no extra cost. The slaw was OK, chunky and crunchy but a little too vinegary for my taste. I had the slaw, but also the beans and 1/2 rack of ribs. I love the beans here - really smoky and plump. Of course, the ribs did not disappoint in their succulence, juiciness and true southwest smoky flavour, with just the right measure of charring. (If you like heat like I do, assk for tabasco instead of using the house hot sauce, which it ain't.) It's why we keep coming back here. With a pint of Creemore, a 9 oz. glass of house red, $66 before tip.

We have eaten here twice in last few months with friends (50-65 yrs old) and in total we experienced 12 people having dinner here and everyone loved their meal! King's Arms has been our favourite pub for years but the food at Shakers is just as good if not better! They have a very unique selection of side dish choices that (besides the common items) they offer: delicious brown beans, sumptuous large bowl of clam chowder and yummy cornbread. Beer was available in pitchers. Service was excellent. Darts and pool are available. Lots of flat screens displaying a large variety of sports events in progress. When we left manager gave us a big wave of thanks.
Hey Oakville - strongly recommend you give this friendly sports bar a try and you won't be disappointed! Free ample parking! Cheers!
