Received confirmation of our reservations, went to the Shelburne at the right time, and the place was closed. Was very disappointed. Obviously, making reservations on line is not reliable.
The restaurant was not open. It had been closed all winter. What a waste of time.
We went on New Years Eve and chose this restaurant based on their menu - looked fabulous. Upon arriving, they had a very limited menu of 4 entrees, a couple salads and soups, a few desserts and no appetizers!!! When ordering wine by the glass, they were out of several and left only a few to choose from - I can understand them being out closer to midnight, but this was at 6:30 pm... The entrees were steak, seafood fettuccini, crab cakes and a vegetarian meal. No fresh grill or baked fish, oysters, clams at all. My wife had a Caesar salad. She could not finish it due to the overloaded anchovies they used in the dressing. I had the fettuccini which was under seasoned, but the seafood in it was cooked just right. The crab cakes were good. We did not want dessert since nothing sounded good. Overall, it was a pricey disappointment of a meal. Maybe on a typical evening it would have been fabulous.
Excellent décor places you at the time that the Peninsula was first being developed. The food meets modern standards while showcasing the local, sustainable resources which have been unchanged during the history of the Inn. It's like using a time machine-but without the accumulated dust and cobwebs. Desserts are always outstanding so leave room to indulge.
Service was impeccable. Made us feel special with greeting and attention by owner throughout dinner on Christmas. Food was delicious, right size, and healthy. Superb wine list. Still the best dining experience on peninsula for us. Happy New Year.
We love this place. David is a culinary genius. The bar is always great with great bartenders. Breakfasts come with the hotel stays with lots of options. The first breakfast I had was biscuits and gravy. This was different than any biscuits and gravy I've ever had and they were spectacular. The second breakfast I had was the hang town fry. Oysters I love em. For dinner I had a double order of pan fried oysters...wonderful. My wife had the crab ravioli she loved em.
This is a wonderful place to dine. So friendly and awesome food.
It was our wedding night dinner and the Shelburne was perfect and very special. A cozy romantic atmosphere and delicious food. A perfect night.
Way to expensive for the dishes that were offered. I think they are taking advantage of being the only "nice" restaurant in the area. Waiter dropped the ball a couple of times. Also, made a reservation on Open Table and noted it was my husbands birthday, and told the waiter also, and received no free birthday dessert or just candle on the dessert we did order and pay for.
A authentic gem of early 1900's ambience. Attentive service, prompt fulfillment, good local sourcing.
I love this place and go there very often for Breakfast, Lunch and in the Pub with good local beer and wine and they serve there too with nice crafted fresh local food. They raise their own herbs too. David the owner is always there to service too and what a great humor and friend he is. Every one there is freindly and accomodating. The hotel is great, you have to go see the rooms for they are open to look see. Each is individual and set to a cuzy period with history and antiques and the most comfortable beds. This is a couples romantic Inn. Just down a staircase from upper rooms or the lower rooms, you can enter the bar or setting room to read or just hag out or go into the dinning room. This is a Home Type environment Inn. THIS IS A GEM>>>
We had a late lunch in the Pub. Food was tasty, reasonably priced, good service and a lovely ambiance with the stained glass windows and intimate seating.
We have enjoyed the Shelburne several times over the years. Reliable for good food, cozy atmosphere, nice people!
What a great place for dinner. Definitely a must go place. David Campiche was a wonderful host.
Service was good, food was not. The seafood chowder was more like a watered down, bland curry. The olive oil that came with the bread tasted like burnt nastiness. The crab Ravioli was also watery and bland. The steak with blue cheese that my lady ordered was flavorful, but it hardly made up for the test of the meal. Definitely does not justify the prices they charge here. Never going to return, not impressed at all.
Most of our visits to Long Beach include a dinner at Shelburne Inn, and sometimes the pub as well. We've enjoyed many visits with David over the years, but didn't get to talk with him this time.
On this most recent visit, there was something lacking. It might have been that our table of 9 was placed in the no-mans land between the restaurant and pub. It might have been the little plastic piece in my drink which didn't seem to bother the servers at all. It might have been the lack of "caring" about the food being served. We had attentive service from the 3 different waitstaff working between the pub and restaurant, but it all felt rushed, like we were an afterthought (oh, yeah...can you check on that table in the other room?). Our drinks were good. The food was good. It was all just missing that little extra that we'd come to associate with the Shelburne. We will definitely eat there again on our next visit, but hope for something more like prior visits.
David, the owner, was very pleasant, humorous, attentive, and interesting to talk with. The food was excellent as was the ambience. Prices are reasonable given the quality of the experience. We will return there next year when we vacation on the Long Beach peninsula.
Nice rustic restaurant. And waiter kept us laughing and they had very good food.
Wonderful restaurant. We loved everything. We had a great table with excellent service. The cocktails were wonderful. The music was lovely. The food! My husband had cioppino and said it was the BEST he's ever had and he is a connoisseur of cioppino. I had black cod simmered in a curry sauce, delicious. We didn't have room for dessert. Only suggestion would be the table could have benefited from a period relevant vase and fresh flowers.
Really nice small plates menu. Good variety made it hard to choose. Our server was excellent and made some great recommendations. Key Lime Pie for dessert was a great finish to the evening. Would definitely return and recommend to others.
Before my husband past away, we would occasionally stop at the Shelburne Restaurant and Pub for a nice lunch. They never failed to meet or exceed our expectations. Since he has past, I now bring friends to the Long Beach Peninsula for a weekend stay. Whenever we are looking for somewhere nice to eat that also has great service and wonderful food, we end up at the Shelburne Restaurant and Pub. After all these years, it still rises to the top of the list as a great place to dine when in Long Beach, WA.
Every time we are down from Canada we make a point of dining at the Shelburne. Host David is always gracious and the atmosphere is perfect. We'll be back.
We had a wonderful Mothers Day/Anniversary Brunch at the Shelburne Restaurant today. The Crab Ravioli was loaded with succulent meat and covered with flavorful bechamel sauce and cooked perfectly. We also had the Five onion Soup Gratinee which was delicious and made from five varieties of onions making it exceptionally yummy and topped with their homemade bread crouton and Gruyere. The Malted Waffles and the Roasted Turkey Sandwich rounded out our brunch also delicious. We were full, but couldn't pass up some homemade ice cream and chocolate soufflé. What a great meal, exceptional service and atmosphere. We highly recommend coming here for breakfast, lunch or dinner and the Pub is lots of fun too!!!😉
Food was fresh, very tasty, and beautifully served. Well worth the cost. Service was friendly and accommodating.
Had to return the steak because it was slightly overcooked, but the server agreed, apologied, and very professionally handled it. The second one was perfect!
Whenever I'm in Long Beach for business, I like to bring colleagues to the Shelburne Restaurant. The building is a period piece, inside and out, which makes it fun and interesting. The owners keep rotating modern art through the dining room, making it more interesting for those who prefer modern over historical. Service and food quality are uniformly high and the menu, although not as extensive as chain restaurants, always features meat, seafood and vegetarian choices. My best advice: safe room for dessert! They always includes a new take on comfort sweets.
This is a very quaint, old-fashioned hotel, restaurant and bar. All beautifully appointed with old style Decour. The food was very good.
We enjoyed the food very much, though can only address one of the menu items because we all got the same thing! The ambience is charming.
Perfect... Less fresh ground pepper!
Incredibly charming historic Inn and restaurant. Friendly, excellent food, always a special place.
Overpriced with mediocre food! The choices were normal but just average and way to much money for the quality.
we had reservations for 7pm on a Friday night. As soon as we walked in, the server said she'd been walking around, waiting for us to show up since 4pm. She also said that the restaurant closes at 8. I don't like to rush, so this caught us off guard. This isn't her fault...there just simply hadn't been anyone else there, which made me suspicious from the start. In addition, for a place that had been pushed as "high end", there was no cocktail menu, and the french onion soup and fried cauliflower appetizers were void of flavor (sorry for using all your salt). My date's crab ravioli was lacking crab and the dish's cheese and butter took over what crab there was. That said, I was happy with the cioppino - tons of fish, clams, and squid. Overall, I was disappointed in the ambiance, the appetizers, and the lack of patrons in a place that is really, really cool. It was just a shame.
We enjoyed three night stay--all three breakfasts good, and excellent evening, during a regional public service conference. We are glad we scheduled the weekend as a result of several pleasant lunches in summertime. Thanks and keep the flag flying!
A first for my son and daughter - in - law and they thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Gracious and attentive server and great food. Glad we took them there.
Place was amazing. Stopped during the day for a cocktail and ended up hanging out for 3 hours drinking, watching football and meeting new interesting people.
Upon leaving we made reservations for dinner that same evening. Antique furniture absolutely stunning. The meal was prepared to perfection with a large wine list.
I recommend and looking forward to visiting again from Seattle.
Gorgeous place. My dinner was OK, everything else was really poor. Disappointing.
Food was gourmet and we'll prepared. They work with people who have food allergies. Staff is knowledgeable on the food and selection of wines.
It used to be a northwest destination restaurant. Sadly the once great menu is now very limited, what we had was good but compared to restaurants in the NW metropolitan areas not in the same league. The service was at best confused.
During our visit to Washington, we spent one night at the Shelburne Inn. We had dinner and breakfast before checking out of the Inn. For dinner, we had an excellent server that worked hard to make our meal very pleasant. The chef came out and spoke to us and asked if we were satisfied with our meal. The salad was fresh and hid homemade dressing was excellent. He told us the ingredients and how it was prepared. The Razor Clams were new to us. The chef explained what they were and how they were prepared. They were excellent. The Cioppino was delicious. Of course, the Key Lime pie was to die for!!
Our breakfast was complimentary, included in our stay at the Inn. For breakfast, we had eggs cooked the way we liked. Being from the South, we missed our grits but his potatoes were excellent. He made the ketchup, preserves, and biscuits. The fruit was so fresh. Our entire dinning experience at Shelburne Inn and Restaurant was just delightful.
The Shelbourne Inn is an amazing dining experience . The menu is very creative and stunningly . The service inpecable and this is now one my top 10 favorites .
A hidden gem in the tourist town of Long Beach! Treat yourself to a wonderful restaurant you'll see why we will back again. Also the Inn is elegant and cozy and will be staying there next visit into town.
