Since moving to Huntsville, we had been searching for a good place to have a nice breakfast. Shea's Express is excellent with a wide choice of very nice breakfast dishes and/or pastries. For some reason, the restaurant is not at all crowded at breakfast. The breakfast tacos were delicious and the restaurant serves high quality coffee and orange juice. There... More

We had three in our party and the food didn't come out together even though we were on the same order number. In their defense it was crowded, but typically the food is served quickly and together. The staff was friendly and helpful. My favorite is the seafood quiche. Desserts are tempting, too!

Marvelous experience! I may never be able to go to Panera Bread again, knowing the kind of superb quality, variety, and service of this establishment. The owner runs a tight ship, serving and mingling with the customers right alongside her courteous and professional staff. The food itself is exceptional, and the portions are generous. I brought home half of my... More

First of all, I have few complaints about the quality and flavor of the menu items served here. Very tasty bakery selection, good variety of entree selections, and appealing presentations are fairly standard. The breakdown is in ordering and getting your order in a timely manner as you requested. I am part of a Saturday morning breakfast group. We have... More

The food was excellent. I was not rushed, nice background music. Friendly atmosphere. Not your typical everyday restaurant. You feel good eating here.

I've been to Shea's twice. The first time, my wife and I had the place mostly to ourselves. I liked the decor and atmosphere - it is a very nice place and the food was fine. However, the second time was 180 degrees off. It seems that the kitchen and wait staff are incapable of functioning if there are more... More

Each meal I've had here has been very tasty, and I recommend the restaurant to others. Overall this place is a relaxing and enjoyable place to dine. Just a few negatives: I have ordered the Salmon BLT on three occassions, and each time the meal was delivered differently. The 1st time was wonderful and complete as stated in the menu.... More

Shea's Express is one of my favorite venues for social gatherings. They have a beautiful garden room that is perfect for small groups and the food and service are always first rate. It's my "go to" place when I want something done right. Wonderful atmosphere, great food, friendly service. Can't beat it.
