“Good food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

A small restaurant in downtown Murphy NC, Shoebooties is a great value with great food. There are the usual choices, burgers, etc, but everything is done with a certain flair that lends itself to much more expensive locations. We have enjoyed Shoebooties for many years and will continue to bring friends and family for a great meal.

“Great place for lunch or dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Shoebooties is wonderful for a girls birthday lunch or a nice quiet lunch with your *husband unit*. The food is very good, selection is wonderful and the dessert shooters are a scrumptious ending to any meal. Prices are extremely reasonable for both lunch and dinner as they offer a lunch special and dinner for two special. Once of our favorite places to go in Murphy.

“Try somewhere else”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

I had high expectations for this restaurant because of other reviews but came away disappointed. When we went in for lunch the person in the front had us wait several minutes while she attended to something else without even an acknowledgement. When she did acknowledge us, there was still a wait while she finished what she was doing even though showing us a table took a matter of 30 seconds. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich with a side of orzo salad. The chicken salad was bland, served on thin white bread and basically just tasteless. The orzo salad was strange. It was manyonaise based just mixed with orzo and not much else. I was expecting something entirely different so was really disappointed that it turned outto be one of those mayonnaisy pasta salads you would find in a grocery store deli counter. Once we were seated, the service was fine. I'd be hard pressed to want to try this restaurant again.

“Very good local restuarant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Shoe Booties has many pluses...
It has an excellent downtown location.
Good parking may not be easy to find in front of the restaurant but it's probably not too far away.
It has a comforrtable "home-town" atmosphere.
The wait staff are pleasant and knowledgible and, if you are a tourist, can help you find other local venues as well.
I have never had to wait an excessive amount of time for my meal.
The owners are on the premises and are equally pleasant.
As well as having traditional "pub-grub" items on the menu, you can always find a few unusual things, like Tomato-Roquefort Soup, which I have never seen in any other restaurant.
Everything I have ever ordered has been perfectly cooked.

“Snow crab seasoned perfectly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Best crab seasoning outside of New Orleans I have ever had.It's an all u can eat deal and the first serving is more than enough.For a small town eatery it is a first class place.
