    Really good pub food served here, the pie, burgers, steak & parmi were delicious! Casual place, cosy, upstairs more chilled.

    Gone down hill a bit. Used to be cheap and great value with delic’ pizzas on offer at reasonable prices. Now packed and noisy with dearer prices and no pizza. Just the way most Sydney venues go!

    The mammoth chicken parma - which makes up in cheese what it entirely lacks in class - and the beer battered fish and chips are both great ways to pork on out.

    The lamb shanks are still seriously on point as are the T-bones. Get into it!

    Eat across the road at Mohr Fish. They let you bring it in to the pub if you order takeaway. Bit pricier but way better than the Shakey's kitchen.

    Upstairs rocks but during the week you want to get there before 7 to get a good seat. The chicken parma is my favorite, dont listen to that other guy!

    All the meals are 12.50$, and definitely good value for money! I highly recommend it :)

    Salt and Pepper calamari was delish. They are little rings of calamari. Tasty and crispy.

    Food is great. Prices have gone up a bit but things range from $12.50 to $15? Still pretty good for good pub grub. Beer is pretty standard.

    Best $10 meals in Sydney. The recent upgrade of the upstairs was welcome, but it has reduced seating capacity. Thursdays seem like the busiest nights and you might have to wait around for a seat.

    Very workers-class pub, the lunch specials are not bad.

    20 meals for under $10, tastiest pub grub in Sydney by far and double happy hour Mon-Fri makes the shakey the best pub around.
