Sunday Brunch at Shephards is outstanding, reasonably priced and very tasty with a LOT to choose from. My understanding is that Brunch only happens on Sunday, so if your in the area it is a must do.

Went to the Champagne Brunch on Sunday 3/22. and we had a great experience. It started with the valet parking that I wasn't expecting. What made it even better was the parking is free ($15 saved!) as long as the restaurant stamps your ticket. You have to pay $15 in cash when you leave your car, but it is returned... More

By far the best meal we had on our 8 day stay! Prime Rib was juicey and flavorful, the endless shrimp, crab and oysters on the half shell... More

We haven't eaten at Shephard's in ages and it was always decent. Today we went back (had a gift certificate) for Sunday brunch and was VERY pleasantly surprised. The selection on their Sunday Brunch Buffet is outstanding. Fresh and well presented appetizers from Sushi and oysters on the half shell to crab clusters and shrimp. Salads were well presented and...
