So surprisingly good

We ate here on a Saturday night.. I didn't really know what to expect but I was really impressed. For $10 I got a huge portion of chicken and dumplings, which was delicious, a cup of soup, soda, and a bowl of ice cream. I've never been to a restaurant where a soft drink and dessert is included with... read more

The Shrine Restaurant is a great cap off to a visit for the way of lights. A simple German dinner with very friendly service.

My girlfriends and I go out every Tuesdays and try to find a different restaurant to go to. We try to stay away from the big chains and go to some out of the way places. We wanted to take a photo at the Shrine so we decided to eat lunch there. I chose the soup and salad, all you... More

Went back here again (the restaurant) last Saturday with whole family and guests. We had a bit of a wait, only because it happened to be crazy busy. However, the food was top-notch. My parents even commented how there wasn't even a side dish on the buffet that tasted just ordinary.

We have been eating here since 2001 and have always loved it. From the food to the service it was always a great experience. Well, the service by Sandy was excellent but everything else was simply average. Further, I really didn't appreciate the managers attitude (tall lady with short hair). We unknowingly arrived 30 minutes before close and offered to... More

My family went to The Shrine for their Sunday brunch two weeks ago. We arrived early and were the first in line. The extremely rude hostess made it a point to take her sweet time when seating our group of 12. She completely ignored us and sat about 30 people behind us in line. It took about twenty minutes for... More

Excellent foods with a good selection. If they're having the soup and salad buffet, go for it. They have 5 or 6 different soups and they're all excellent.

The Shrine Restaurant seems to be a favorite of the senior set. The buffet is rather pricey, but the food quality and selection are good. I ate here primarily because I had coupons from my stay at the Shrine Hotel.
