RESERVATIONS: While we do not ALWAYS accept reservations and never online, we do encourage large parties of 6 or more to call and request a reservation. Please call in advance and leave a message with the following details; your name, phone number, party size, seating preference, handicap considerations, and time. The restaurant is an open air environment and while the interior portions have heating and air, it is encouraged that guests dress “weather appropriate”. A manager will attempt to return your message within 24 hours. All honored reservations will only be kept for 5 minutes and the entire party must be present in total in order to be seated.
CALL AHEAD SEATING: Our Saturday and Sunday brunch service has become very popular. We encourage parties of 4 or more to call the host and request to be added to the WAIT LIST at least 30 mintues prior to their arrival. The seating arrangement of the dining room, porch and deck dictate that parties are seated by size and server availability and not party size. Calling ahead will afford the host the opportunity to make the most efficient table usage and afford you a timely seating. Please keep in mind that CALL AHEAD SEATING does not guarantee you a table upon arrival. It is important to provide the host with an accurate arrival time. Parties on the list but not present when called will be moved to the next available table based upon the aforementioned party size seating plan.
PRIVATE EVENTS and CORPORATE and BUSINESS FUNCTIONS: Please feel free to call the restaurant between noon and 4:00 PM Monday through Friday to discuss any large gatherings. We NEVER “charge” for large party event space and will always try to accommodate private events.
The Shelter’s al fresco design and uncommon seating arrangement and dynamic staffing needs dictate that we encourage you to give us a ring in advance and afford us the opportunity to plan for your arrival, thus making your Shetler experience as pleasant as possible.
