It was not clear to us or obvious when this restaurant is actually open for business. We wound up taking our business elsewhere. Once we did it an open time, we had no complaints! The service was very good, the food and portions were quite satisfactory and the price was right!

Everyone's meal was great (sandwiches). The service was also great, even though we showed up just as a Sunday lunch crowd was building up. Good healthy menu items available, along with some maybe not so healthy, but delicious items also. If we return to Tubac someday we'll definitely go back to Shelby's.

We live locally, so sample many of the restaurants in the area regularly. Shelby's is a stand out. Whether we are eating in or taking out - they have great "grab and go" specials in the summer- the food is always fresh, well prepared and delicious. They have some of the best ribs in the area and a chicken picatta... More

All six in the party seemed pleased. Interesting variety from burgers (including a black bean burger) to inventive attractive salads. Andrea was an attentive server in a clean and cute venue.

Today (7/31/14) I visited Shelby's and ordered a Shelby Burger, I I found that it was OUTSTANDING. The restaurant had a sense of home while not being cluttered. The staff on hand were very kind and said to make myself at home. One of the main reasons I enjoyed Shelby's so much was it didn't have the loud atmosphere that... More

Three friends and I had dinner here last week. Once again it was excellent. The service was excellent even though they were quite busy on a Friday night. My friend's martini was one of the best he'd ever tasted. When he asked our server who made it she admitted she had and did a special job because her grandmother drank... More

I have dined at this restaurant off and on for more than 10 years, and have always found the food excellent, and the service and ambiance good enough to make the meal a delightful experience. The last time I ordered a gin martini which was so good I called the server (a very nice gal named Melonie) to inquire as... More

What a perfect evening to eat outside overlooking the mountains. We sat at an empty table and were quickly welcomed by the staff. We started with a bottle of their house Chilean wine. What a great deal with 1/2 price on their wine through the entire summer! I had the Thai curry mussels. They were tasty & tender. Our next... More
