Allmusic.com gave Night Shift a 2 1/2 star review:
After hitting it big in the arena rock sweepstakes with Fool for the City, Foghat continued along the same lines on 1976’s Night Shift. This time, ex-Edgar Winter sideman Dan Hartman took the producer’s chair. The result is a well-produced and solid hard rock album that nonetheless feels disappointing because it lacks the consistently high levels of energy and inspiration that marked its predecessor. This time, the hard rocking highlights included the title track, a powerhouse tune built on a strong combination of an ascending guitar riff and rumbling bassline, and “Drivin’ Wheel,” an automobile-themed slab of boogie rock that glides along on a stomping, cymbal-accented beat and plenty of fat power chords. … Foghat enthusiasts should probably sample Night Shift’s highlights on a compilation before deciding whether or not to pick it up.
