Wait staff great. Waited 40 min for table despite having reservation. 😞
My dinner was delicious, the service was excellent and our server extremely accommodating. It was a very pleasant experience except that the conversation from all the tables around us was very loud. As the restaurant emptied, the noise level became much more comfortable.
Our waitress, Taylor L, was one of the best we have ever had.
The hostess was very friendly and welcoming! Our server, Andrew, was fantastic! He was also friendly and welcoming. His service was outstanding in every way. We love The Shelby and plan to return soon.
The Shelby does a great job all the time. Sinead was very personable and helpful.
Great brunch menu; a little pricey for what it was but overall great experience!
Our server was perfect. We sat outside with a nice summer breeze which I was surprised more people did not do. The food was fresh and tasty. Will definitely go back.
Great food and delicious cocktails!
This place is very well decorated and the staff is overly nice and attentive. There is a large drink menu and an active bar scene. The food was very good, I recommend the spicy Thai chicken!
I had read that this restaurant served comfort food. This was far from the case. The menu was very eclectic. The homemade lemonade was the most disgusting thing I ever tasted. Who ever thought putting hot peppers in lemonade was off the mark. The worst part was that the waitress never commented that I didn't drink the lemonade that she recommended was so yummy that I just had to try it. An observant waitress would have noticed and offered to bring me something else. We found something to eat that wasn't too crazy and that was pretty good. The fact that my 13 year old son ate more of my fries than his pizza with the cheese neither of us ever heard of before tells me the pizza was not up to his usual standards.
Nice meal - great portions - 2 of 4 could not finish their meal.
This was my first time at The Shelby. I met a few friends for brunch and we can't wait to go back. It took us a long time to decide on our oder, because everything sounded so good. Our food was amazing, but that didn't stop us from eyeing up what everyone else got, and picking out what we will get next time.
The food was delicious and big servings. The waitress and manager were also wonderful
Food quality and choice was excellent. Our daughter is a vegetarian, and there were many options for her as well. Service was smooth and flawless. We've been to the Shelby several times and have never been disappointed.
Very pleasant dining experience. Server was very personable and helpful. Food came out soon after we placed our order (was a Friday evening, 6:30), and it was hot, hadn’t been sitting in the kitchen. Chicken Parmesan was delicious, as always; is my favorite dish. The pistachio cake (which I had had before, and it was very light in texture), seemed a bit dry. Other than that, the meal was delightful!
Great adult Happy Hour scene. One of the best spots in the Lehigh Valley to have a few cocktails AND a great meal with family and friends.
Great food and service
Food is consistently delicious! This is one of our favorite Lehigh Valley restaurants.
All good really no issues.
Our service was extremely nice and helpful And now I’m filling space cause I need 50 characters.
We always stop here when staying in the Allentown area. The cocktails are great, the food is wonderful, the service is the best, and the ambiance is lovely.
Great food and drinks, albeit a bit pricy. Will go again, but only for special occasions.
Great experience, delicious food! I highly recommend the chicken parm
I love their food, cocktails + the overall atmosphere!
Christian and Clint and the whole team always do an awesome job. There are some newer servers but they only hire the friendliest and most helpful people so that's not a concern. My Mom needs gluten-free options and they were very knowledgeable on what modifications would happen to menu items. It was loud, but it was prime-time Friday night, so that's to be expected. Always a great time!
They took my wives go to... tuna tostada. 😞 didn’t fine a good substitute yet.... will keep trying or just bring it back better yet.
Nice atmosphere, decent food. My mother in law had some pretty undercooked rice in her dish, but I enjoyed my swordfish. Always good drinks here and a great bar.
We sat at the bar - the bartender was slow, got orders wrong, was arrogant / really, this is Lehigh Valley not Soho House
Our server was excellent, friendly and attentive, and made some wonderful recommendations for beverages and meal selections.
The staff is more than accommodating...always friendly and the food is always fresh and done well one of my favorite restaurants in the lehigh valley
It was delicious, we can’t wait to go back and try new dishes.
We are frequent diners at The Shelby and usually have great service, but this visit the service was very slow -- over an hour for brunch (a salad and chicken with waffles). Our waiter also never updated us during that entire hour or came over to see if we wanted more drinks.
We enjoyed it so much we may come back again tonight.
server Brielle was excellent and worked hard to make sure we were happy...
Wish the rice bowl was better
We were seated at 2pm, our resv time, however 25 mins went by with no server stopping by. Several servers walked by and it was clear we hadn’t been waited on. It wasn’t until I said something that eventually a server came over to us. When our server did arrive she did not apologize for the over 30 minute wait at that point. When our food finally arrived the salad was missing half of what it was supposed to come with. To cap our lunch off we were then given the wrong check. We’ve been to the Shelby several times and I’d like to say this was a one time disappointment, unfortunately that isn’t the case. We’ve had poor service as many times now as we’ve had positive. At this point I might rethink going back. For a $75 dollar lunch I expect a certain level of service.
Great new menu!
Food took FOREVER and the restaurant wasn’t even full. We waited almost 45 minutes for our apps and the entrees came out 20 minutes after we were finished with the apps.
