The wait... True, worth it... True

Other reviews say the wait is long. Very true we waited nearly an hour. It is absolutely worth it. The plates are full, the food is homemade and delicious. While you are waiting go to the florist next door and hit up Lenny(owner) for all your concierge needs. The folks at Shea's treat you like... read more

Local reviewer... The wait here is always out the door in the summer season. Not worth the wait but once and awhile we will order take out. Pork Roll and Cheese on and everything bagel: (This sandwich was not altered in anyway other than me taking a bite out of it and then wondering where the pork roll and cheese... More

First time visit but certainly NOT the last time to this outstanding Breakfast Restruant. If your any where close to Galloway NJ this is a must stop. Skip the Atlantic City buffets and drive over to Shea's. The Crunchy French Toast stuffed with cream cheese is out of this world delicious. My wife had the blueberry pancakes and she was... More

Had lunch today and came away with mixed feelings. First, the service is excellent and cordial. Ordered short order of pancakes. I found the portion huge but tough and hard. I wouldn't order again. My wife had salad with shrimp and it was again huge and very good. I'll try again but not order pancakes.

My wife and I mostly enjoyed the Shea Cafe. Following are some pros and cons: Pros: The owner was very friendly as were the servers. They kept your coffee cup full of pretty good coffee. The slightly spicy seasoned home fries were tasty and a nice change from the usual diner home fries. They also offer non-seasoned. The biscuits were... More

We stopped here on our way home from a wedding. We waited about 40 mins, but it was well worth it. Everyone who worked there had a wonderful personality so you feel at home while you're there. They gave us coffee and hot chocolate for while we waited outside. Everything we had was delicious - especially the bananas foster french... More

This was simply the best breakfast we've ever had! We were a party of twelve, including one infant, and while the place is rather small, we were seated as promised within 45 min. We had a wide sampling due to the size of our group, from the cinnamon swirl French toast, to eggs, salmon benedict, home fries, biscuits and pancakes.... More

All the special dishes and Lou the owner ison top of everything. Known for their pancakes, waffles and omellets; everything in the restaurant is made fresh every day. The only negative is the wait.

It was rated the #1 place in Galloway so we had to try it! My husband and I went on a Thursday morning around 8am -- they were extremely quick and efficient. We were seated as soon as we walked in the door and were out before 9am! My husband had cinnamon French toast which he swears was amazing (and... More
