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 Monday-Friday. Reservations on holiday weekends cannot be accepted. However, we are able to accept some large party reservations on slower weekends. Please call in advance and leave a message with one of our employees including the following details; your name, phone number, party size, seating preference, handicap considerations, food allergies, and time requested. 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 after expected arrival time and the entire party must be present in total in order to be seated. Having a reservation cannot always guarantee that you are seated immediately, but we will do our very best to have your table ready for you on time.
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 Shelter experience as pleasant as possible.
Completed applications should be left with the host or bartender Monday thru Thursday 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM only. Applicants walking in and requesting or dropping off applications outside of those hours will be turned away. Attaching your resume is strongly encouraged.
Finally, please do not call to check on the status of your application. We review applications as they are received and we keep them filed as positions become available. We will be in touch if we are in need of your employment.
We strongly encourage persons requesting donations to submit a complete donation request packet to our physical mailing address in person or via USPS. The demand for donations far exceeds our ability to meet those requests and persons requesting are encouraged to make a concise and compelling case for their request.
Your request has been sent to the restaurant. We will contact you soon.
