  • Hidden Gem! Made signs for a girls weekend, they handled 12 wild moms/30-somethingsand kept us creative and hydrated with wine!
  • Great outdoor get together with date,spouse,friends,family. Good music,fun environment,fantastic food. Not many choices but good. Wine or beer if you like. Cover charge decent. Highly recommend
  • Loved the atmosphere - child and adult friendly. Helpful staff who definitely have a passion for the arts and enjoy sharing their knowledge with others. "Finding the fairy doors" was an added bonus to a day of painting pottery.
  • We enjoy this place. Good light lunch food and coffee, nice selection of gifts, and live music on weekends. Indoor and outdoor seating. It's a gem.
  • We absolutely enjoyed our visit to The Potter's Shed. We searched for Fairy doors, looked through the gallery, and decorated our own pottery pieces! We were even able to expedite the firing process for a couple of bucks so we could pick them up before our vacation was over. We'll definitely be back to...The Potter's Shed!!!
