This place is dirty, and the food is awful!! The carpet in the bar has been there since the 80's and still smell's like cigarette smoke. The smoking area outback is filty and moldy. The owner doesn't care about anything but the money. Bar fights...occur and drugs are done on the premises.More

This place used to be great. It looks dirty and rundown. The food is greasy and unreliable. The kitchen floor looks awful. No cameras anywhere!

Shy’s doesn’t look 👀 like much on the outside - but inside is old style welcome. The service is good - the menu has a great variety and you can usually get gluten free bread 🍞 options. Cook time is generally quick and the food...🥘 is tasty! My grandson picks Shy’s over any others place when asked where does he want to go!More

I love that whether you are one person or a large group you get good food. I would highly recommend any restaurant to make a few things exceptionally well and always have service with a smile. Shy's is definitely a small town café/diner with good...food.More

Stopped to try a diner in this town, and was disappointed. There was a large party already seated, so knew it would take some time. Both of us ordered the hamburger steak. I asked for extra butter for my baked potato. Had to go to...counter and ask for extra and had to go take glasses to counter to get refill on our drinks. Waitress was to busy talking with a friend sitting at the counter to pay attention to us. The green beans were the frozen kind and were not flavored or seasoned at all, Yuck! Would never go back there.More

Good for breakfast, avoid the fish and chips and fried chicken. Some how some one got the idea to use dehydrated hash brows for the coating on the fish ??? The fried chicken is advertised as large pieces, honestly I think they should change menu...to say "fried chicks" Unbelievably small pieces...More

typical small town american breakfast--very large portions. Not as greasy as most of this ilk. Clean restaurant, and occupied by locals at least in the early morning. Excellent omelet one morning. Average chicken fried steak on another morning. Friendly cook and staff.

Shy's is a local café style restaurant with friendly people and great food. Large servings fill you up and the price is fair. It's usually REALLY busy Sunday mornings so you might have to wait a little longer for service but it's worth it. Folks...this is no Applebees or Dennys ... it's very much a small town atmosphere.More
