I went to Shelly's once and ordered something very simple- chicken parm and the salad bar. My chicken was over cooked, gamey and inedible. The salad bar offered nothing but brown lettuce. Shelly's needs to step up their game...

We really enjoyed our lunches.. wraps and panini's (food was fresh and not greasy). We were greeted immediately by a gentleman (who we found out later was the owner, what... More

We are visiting the lake with another couple and went here after doing research of local places and seeing mostly good reviews. We expected a typical diner setting.... Not a back woods, hickville, townies welcome only kind of place. The waitress didn't even greet us before leading us to a table (later greeting another group enthusiastically and giving them the...

Look, if you're looking for atmosphere go somewhere else. If you're looking for a great breakfast at a reasonable price, then Shelly's is the place to go. It would appear the plastic flowers haven't been changed out since the 70's but.......... WHO CARES ? The food is good and we received service with a down home smile. Will defiantly go... More

Very disappointing! The ambiance is lackluster and gives a sensation of being in a drab place. The buffet trays were not clean and the food in them seemed to be there for a long time. Although one of the servers was polite, another was unfriendly and curt. We tried a couple of times with the same results. - Off the... More

We actually ate her for breakfast great food, large portions and fresh. Service was excellent. I returned for dinner with my sister and did an art event. We had a buffet dinner, the salad was fresh with lots of toppings. The fried chicken was excellent. We painted a cardinal and step by step they talked us through it. I was... More

Made many trips here for breakfast. The food is unremarkable. Service is good. The portions are a nice size. There is a breakfast buffet if you want to go that way. There is nothing bad I can say about Shelly's. There is also nothing great to say. It's a nice place to get a good breakfast and not break the... More
