“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 12 July 2012 via mobile

Didn't read these reviews before having lunch in this historic former brothel. Glad because I wouldn't have gotten a chance to learn the history behind it. These are OLD buildings trying to find new life. The woman dressed in period garb inviting you in sold us. I had a simple hot dog broiled to perfection and not a skinny weeny either! Hubby had the roast beef sandwich which was fine as was the club sandwich and chili dog had by others in our party. We had a great tiime and if you're not expecting the Ritz then this is the place to be.

“Soggy sandwiches at a rundown restaurant”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

We stopped in during a rainstorm as the train was pulling in. This place supports the stereotype that the worst restaurants are right next to the tourist attraction since people are lazy and will not bother to walk a few blocks to better alternatives and the restaurant does not really need to worry about return-business. Interior is shabby and trying hard to look like someone cares. Food is obviously sitting ready on counters in the back for the arrival of the train and thus, the bottom of every sandwich was soggy and gross. Skip it and walk a few blocks to something better.

“Cheap everything, not worth a visit”
Reviewed 30 June 2012

This restaurant is only remarkable in how underwhelming it was... I think they are taking advantage of their location right off the train by not offering quality food to its customers. The service was OK from what I remember, but the food was unseasoned and not worth whatever we paid. I think the kitchen's idea for lunch was, "Let's throw a piece of bread on a plate, warm up some meat and call it 'lunch!'"

If you want a below-average restaurant, the Shady Lady is for YOU!

“Cheap & Cheap quality”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

Great grill cheese! Nothing else looked good- the place has an odd smell to it, like old grease. Nice owners!
