Severeal errands in Huntington had a looking for a place for a late lunch. The Shed was recommended to us, so off we went. Since we already had a parking space on a nearby street, this was a “no brainer!” If you cannot get street parking, there is a municipal lot directly across the street. Although I was told on the phone that the restaurant is wheelchair-accessible, this is not quite the case. There are two steps up to the single door entrance, which I was told about. We were directed to go around to the right of the outdoor patio and enter through the patio. Unfortunately, there is a step down to the patio. From here one can walk across and up the incline to the entrance.
Since it was a nice day we opted to sit outside. Although it was a bit cool, the two heatlamps on the patio were great for keeping us comfortable. In case you are still chilly, The Shed has blankets for you. Seating on the patio is a bit tight, but inside is a different story. The large dining room is quite spacious, with plenty of space to navigate. The full-height bar/lounge area has several booths. The website says they serve, “…homey American dishes from morning to night in a relaxed venue with rustic-chic touches.” (website)
Our server was polite and efficient, making sure everything was to our liking, our water glasses and coffee cups filled. We had a lovely, unhurried lunch in a relaxed setting.
The restrooms are located in a hallway to the right of the bar. Unfortunately, they are not handicapped-accessible. The stalls are small and do not have handrails, something important to many with mobility challenges. There are no baby-changing stations.
If you can do the step, and are OK without handrails in the restrooms, this is a great place.
As always, we atDestination Accessible, advise you to check a venue’s website, www.intheshed.com, when planning a visit, to know before you go.
