Shelby Campbell’s executive chef Carolyn Stec decorates plates with a menu of upscale twists on classic pub fare. An extensive beer list supplies sudsy refreshments and fuel for conversations about moon lassoing with bottles ($3.25–$6.25) and pints ($4.25–$5.25) that complement any entree, including the Steak Shelby’s ($18.95) a 12-ounce rib eye basted with wild-mushroom butter and served with fried onions and mashed potatoes. Pizzas ($7.95–$18.95) create saucy foodscapes with seven types of cheese, seven varieties of meaty morsel, and fruits and veggies to stoke palate imaginations. For bellies seeking an old standby, the hearty Shelby burger ($8.95) dresses for the occasion in applewood-smoked bacon, caramelized onions, and a choice of cheese, with a mushroom-butter cummerbund.
Sweet Baby Ray's slow-smokes and cooks savory barbecue comestibles for lunch and dinner.

A pulled-pork plate ($12.99 at dinner, $10.99 at lunch) is seasoned in a house-made rub and smoked for up to 12 hours before being hand-pulled and served up with Sweet Baby Ray's signature barbecue sauce for a stomach-grumble-snuffing meatsperience. If meaty isn't your cup of sports drink, order up a plate of smoked tomato rigatoni ($10.99), penne pasta bathed in house marinara and topped with parmesan cheese.
