The Vermont Maple salad is the best!! Their Gumbo and Reuben's are very good. It is a very relaxing and friendly place.

Cynshea's catered a company holiday party for us, and the food and service was great. The planning stage was very helpful with such an experienced group, offering up a variety of menu choices and ideas. The staff arrived on time, were set up very quickly, and were working very hard and attentively during the event. The food was delicious and... More

Gosh, to find such a great place to eat - mostly sandwiches but all were quite creative - and they were very good. To be among happy customers all relaxing and enjoying their... More

First of all, I have few complaints about the quality and flavor of the menu items served here. Very tasty bakery selection, good variety of entree selections, and appealing presentations are fairly standard. The breakdown is in ordering and getting your order in a timely manner as you requested. I am part of a Saturday morning breakfast group. We have... More

The food was excellent. I was not rushed, nice background music. Friendly atmosphere. Not your typical everyday restaurant. You feel good eating here.

I've been to Shea's twice. The first time, my wife and I had the place mostly to ourselves. I liked the decor and atmosphere - it is a very nice place and the food was fine. However, the second time was 180 degrees off. It seems that the kitchen and wait staff are incapable of functioning if there are more... More

Each meal I've had here has been very tasty, and I recommend the restaurant to others. Overall this place is a relaxing and enjoyable place to dine. Just a few negatives: I have ordered the Salmon BLT on three occassions, and each time the meal was delivered differently. The 1st time was wonderful and complete as stated in the menu.... More

Shea's Express is one of my favorite venues for social gatherings. They have a beautiful garden room that is perfect for small groups and the food and service are always first rate. It's my "go to" place when I want something done right. Wonderful atmosphere, great food, friendly service. Can't beat it.

And this last time we went we spent 15 minutes in line waiting to pay for our food , of which I have to say is over- priced. $10 for a sandwich and tea ? . 2 of us received our ordered food incorrect. My bread my tuna was on was stale. Not impressed. I won't go back.

We are so sorry you had a negative experience with us. However, we have been trying to hire additional cashiers/baristas for months now and are having so much trouble finding a qualified, reliable employee! If you know anyone who needs a job from 6:30-2:30 everyday, at a very competitive pay rate, please send them our way! More
