I wanted to surprise my wife with something special for her birthday, and tea at Shakespeare's Fine English Tea Room was the perfect solution. We each had the Afternoon Tea, a three-tiered presentation of traditional tea fare. The atmosphere and setting were elegant and welcoming. The quality of the food, the selection of teas, and the gracious service made our visit not just a meal but an experience. Cost for two: $31.00, a very fair price for the quiet time we enjoyed together and we will return again to explore the remaining menu.

Just returned from having a great "High Tea" lunch at Shakespeare's. This was our first and will not be our last visit. We have seen this place many times but never ate there; however, they were having a special fundraiser for Journey's End Animal Sanctuary so we couldn't pass it up. The food was great, plentiful and the service wonderful. We ended up having to get a to go box (doggie bag) to take home the great dessert. It was an experience that shouldn't be missed.
I really love this place! I had seen this restaurant for years as I passed it by to frequent other restaurants (which are now closed by the way). So one day I wanted to surprise my grandparents for their 57th wedding anniversary and do something different and the Tea Room came to mind. Well, let me tell you, every time my family is in town visiting my grandparents we try to have a delicious meal at the English Tea Room.
I ate a wonderful dish that was very similar to a shepherds pie with ground beef, vegetables topped with mash potatoes. Today, I hope to try something different.
I can't say enough how enjoyable it is to go to Shakespeares..no matter for a lunch or dinner or just a cup of tea. I love to bring company from out of town there; everyone loves it! The owners try very hard to please the palate and the patron, the wait staff is excellent. I've even hosted a few large gatherings there, knowing that everything will go smoothly and professionally.
