We had a very nice time eating at Shelbys for lunch the food was good and the service was fast. The little café was very quaint and they actually had a lot to offer as far and food and beverage.

Hubby and I went here for lunch. They have a very nice deck with lots of seating. The deck is tucked away and shady so it is a very pleasant place to dine. We both had really nice salads for lunch. Would recommend.

Stopped there for lunch and really enjoyed the outside seating area. The food was good and it was also just enough. Service was adequate.

Our meals were flavorful, perfectly cooked & served within a reasonable amount of time. We shared a thin crust pizza topped with fresh mozzarella, sausage, mushrooms &... More

We were shopping and walking and really needed a break. Nice small meals with cold lemonade. Very clean, prompt service from a small kitchen. We will come again. Thanks
