I have been there 4 times now, a repeat because their food is very good. The reason for the 3 stars, is that each time there was only 1 person for the bar, the restaurant, serving and bussing. 1 or 2 times is one thing, but they need more staff as I feel guilty for stressing the server out, due...

We stopped for lunch. The food was very disappointing. We were hoping to find a place near our home and we were so sad to have a less than pleasant experience. I never see any cars in the parking lot and for the most part the place is pretty empty. We will try again if we see some signs of... More

I just had the most amazing dinner at this restaurant that I am still smiling, I had the Chicken Marsala, cooked beautifully with garlic mashed potatoes and a wonderful sauce containing fresh mushrooms, accompanied by roasted brussel sprouts with bacon and a balsamic vinegar sauce. It was really good. We moved to Camas 5 years ago but never tried this... More

Washougal is a very small town and finding a good restaurant is a challenge. Shelby's was overall pretty good. The atmosphere was definitely BBQ but could use some updating to present a cleaner sense. The food was ok and not ridiculously priced.

The food was tasty, but the lunch servings were small and overpriced compared to other places in Vancouver. The staff was friendly, but it took a long time to get our beer & food. We will go to other places that are a better value for our money.

The food was awesome. Had bacon wrapped jalapenos and a variety of smoked food. Pulled pork, brisket, and pulled chicken. It was all good. Price was comparable to Vancouver and Portland restaurants but without the hassle of the drive and the traffic. Very much worth checking out.

Being from Texas, we had to check out the BBQ in town. Great smoked BBQ, ribs, sandwiches, brisket, bacon, pork, & smoked prime rib. Family dining, outside dining available, with a bar area as well. Staff super friendly and service great.

the food is not what I expected, way over priced. Never busy. The serve staff was friendly and willing to please. This is not a restaurant for this small town.

You know... I have liked Shelby's ever since I moved to the Shoug a few years ago. They used to have the best burgers in town (until K&M took that market). Regardless, the service is always friendly and the food has always been good. Needless to say we were excited to see they opened for breakfast (not sure if they... More
