Shoeless Joe’s

We know you’ve been missing Shoeless Joe’s at the Centrum, and we’re delighted to let you know that the renovations are moving along really well, with a plan to re-open in December. We reached out to the new management to get the inside scoop on what you can expect.


Please share any particular changes or upgrades you are making that you’re especially excited about. What will the “vibe” be?

The space is going through a major renovation that will bring our atmosphere in line with the current Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill look and feel. Our audio & video package will be second to none in Whitby!!

As to our “vibe,” most restaurant brands in Canada are categorized as casual family dining. They all place a few TVs in a small bar section and claim to offer sports to their guests. We’ve broken away from this stereotype.

We are all about sports. We are all about the fan.

We are all about providing the Ultimate Fan Experience.

Imagine being able to experience the thrill, comradeship, and passion of a sports game again and again. Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill is the leading, premium, sports-­centered restaurant chain in Canada, recognized as the community place for celebrating sports and life with family and friends. We aim to deliver the “Ultimate Fan Experience” by creating an environment that celebrates sports every day.

Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill provides an energizing, fun, come-­as-you‐are atmosphere, sophisticated enough to host your next business meeting and casual enough  for a night out with your friends. Every portion of our design has been crafted to create an atmosphere that focuses entirely on sports entertainment.

all about the fans


Will you have any opening specials or special events?
We will be having a private Grand Opening Party where we will be inviting local businesses/vendors/dignitaries to join us in celebrating our new space.

All big sporting events are considered special at Shoeless Joe’s; we make them all a big deal for our guests. So watch out for those!

And of course, we will have daily food and drink features once we open. Here are just a few:

Tuesday: Wing Night: $8.99 order of our Championship Wings
Wednesday: Gourmet Burger Night $8.99
Thursday: Thirsty Thursday: Mixed Drinks $3.99


What do you love about the company and its offerings?
Our ownership group is excited to open our second location, here at the Whitby Entertainment Centrum.

We love Shoeless Joe’s because the concept is all about celebrating sports with family and friends. Whether you’re celebrating your favourite team’s victory, your league game with teammates, or your child’s big win, we’re here for all these memorable times. We are proud to be known as the place to watch the game, enjoy great food, great drinks and great times!
We look forward to building great relationships with the city of Whitby in the years to come.
