“Busy Saturday night”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

My lady and I went to the Shelter for dinner on a Saturday night. After a wait because the staff were all in a menu discussion meeting we had excellent service and great food. Highly recommended.

“Not as good as we hoped”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

Shelter was recommended to us, and when we walked in we were really excited. It had a great atmosphere and lovely open fire. Service was nice, but sadly the food was not good. I'd go back for a drink but not to eat.

“Good Food but pricey”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Had a great burger, extremely tasty, though i won't put great value on what i received. What restaurant doesn't include a side with their meals? My burger was $14 comes with nothing else?. I did order a side of yams fries and they were delicious and a fair sized portion Fireplace was a great touch

Cool spot. Very busy for a Wed. night mid April, good thing we had a reservation. Good service & tasty meal. Don't know what the chefs did to the kale, but I would have that a million times over...YUM! Great experience....totally recommend it as a place to try.
