Truly an amazing surprise

I was traveling from Texas to California and discovered this by using Trip Advisor. It was highly recommended and we were not disappointed. We both ate from the buffet lunch Everything was amazingly good. We also enjoyed the family friendly rustic atmosphere.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The layout and ambiance is a bit like a self- serve homestyle location, but the service and food were way better. The salad bar included an array of fresh items including unusual additions like seaweed and stuffed grape leaves (both excellent). The open plate chicken and the club sandwich were excellent and massive. This... More

Well thought out salad bar and several soup choices. The new owners were there and are both very friendly. The clam chowder is excellent. They have a gospel band -- The Bear Mountain Boys -- very good -- enjoyed it after a movie on a Friday night

The new management seem to be doing very well. The food was excellent and the service was very good. We were greeted right when we entered and seated right away. It did not take that long for our food once we ordered and the serving size was on the generous side. I will definitely return to The Shed and bring... More
