My hub and I went here in June and returned in October with another couple. It was crowded, but we got our ice cream and played the juke box - trip down memory lane. Contemporary yet retro. Fun place recommended by Steve and Jenny at...More

I have not tried everything on the menu but the chicken strip dinner with gravy is heaven on earth. It comes with fries milk gravy and even a piece of buttered bread. It's delicious!

Shell's appears to be a converted Dairy Queen. The ice cream menu is pretty good and counter staff is friendly. The grill menu is varied but the burger I ordered was large but just ok. All in all, it was a decent place.

Ordered the spicy chicken sandwich and it sucked. Their spicy is banana peppers, pepper cheese, and some kind of sauce on a chicken patty fried in old grease.

We were downtown Vevay trying to figure out where to eat. A local resident suggested Shell’s. How can you get a better recommendation? We were pleased. The menu offered many options. Food was good. The place was clean, staff friendly, and prices reasonable.

So, I probably shouldn’t call Shells an ice cream shop because they sell all kinds of diner food. However, we always go there for ice cream treats when we pass by. You can customize their version of a blizzard or shake. The servings are generous....More

The hamburgers and cheese french fries and shakes are very good. The chicken basket is also good. The people are friendly.

Have eaten inside and accessed their drive through many times. Great food - burgers, hot dogs and other good stuff. Their ice cream is great, comes in many forms - I prefer their soft serve and their hot fudge sundaes. Can't go wrong with anything...More

Decorated like a 50's diner with some cool stuff on the walls. Food was made to order which was a good thing but I think the fish I ordered was Mrs. Pauls frozen stuff. French fries were hot and good though! Wife's burger was good....More
