I go to Shea"s all the time with my neighbors and when company comes in from out of town. The food is great, nice size portions, with a very friendly staff. The owner is always there and greets everyone in a very welcoming way. I love their spinach and cheddar cheese omelet with their signature delicious potatoes and huge biscuit. I also like their corn beef sandwich with the owner's wife's special mustard. If there is a line of people outside, waiting to get in, I suggest you wait, it will be worth your while.'

Not only is the food great but Lou, his girls, his wife and the rest of the staff our great. My grandson Giuseppi and granddaughter Gianna are welcomed like they're relatives and we're treated like invited guests every time we go. Needless to say we go at least once a week. Their cinnamon swirl pancakes are a must for your little ones to try! We love Shea's our family, meeting place!

Every town should have a place like Shea's -- great food, great staff, nice background music, pleasant decor, and an owner who always makes you feel welcome and appreciated. If every restaurant owner took care of his guests the way that Lou does, we'd have a lot of booming restaurant business in the area and a lot of satisfied customers. I have NEVER seen Lou or his staff having a bad day -- always a smile and friendly "hello." Much continued success.
