Best Restaurant in Galloway!

Fantastic food at reasonable prices. Lou and his wife are friendly, caring hosts who provide wonderful dishes and baked goods. Call ahead and place your name on their waiting list as they always have a waiting line.

Have gone to Shea's about a dozen times. Great breakfasts and very friendly atmosphere. Everyone that has gone with us also loved it. Large portions and some unique dishes.

I have been hearing great things about Shea's and went there for the first time today. It exceeded all of my expectations! Not only was the food delicious, the presentation was absolutely beautiful. I do not believe that I have ever see so many staff in a restaurant, all of whom were friendly, efficient and attentive. While Lou was multitasking,... More

We had given up trying to get into this place at weekends but were in the area on a Monday and decided to give it a try. Only a couple of minutes wait and worth it - food was good quality and lots of it. My only complaint would be that they are not very flexible, we finished our breakfast... More

First of all, reservations are not accepted, but it's worth the wait. You undoubtedly will be greeted by an eclectic host who will keep you laughing - enjoy the ride. The menu is extensive and everything I have tried is at least good, many things really good and then there are the pearls which are excellent. In the pearl category... More

Every time I go to Shea's with friends or family I have a good time. It's very clean inside and the staff is friendly. I believe the owner Lou is always there making sure everything is running smoothly, and his work shows because if you don't get there early you will end up waiting for a table. The food is... More

Shea's is famous locally for a great breakfast. The lines are long because it is popular with local patrons. The pastries are to die for....you can pick these up for takeout and avoid the lines. The service is fast once you get seated. Don't expect a leisurely meal. They need you to eat and get going. The choices are amazing.... More

The owner at the front was extremely nice playing with my kids. Server was attentive and brought over coloring books and crayons to keep one of my toddlers busy. Food was good and the wait wasn't bad. Overall good experience would definitely come back and recommend to people.
