Great service, average breakfast

My server was friendly and efficient. The omelet was very good, but the hash browns were a bit greasy. I felt the price was a bit high for the quality of the food.

I was there with my family to eat breakfast. I took a bite of my hash browns and instantly felt something poke me in the roof of my mouth. I spit the food out immediately to discover a partial toothpick in my food. I notified the server and her reply was "Yeah, we have been having some issues with the... More

The food is average and most of the time when we go for late breakfast or early lunch we get a terrible waitress. My heart sinks when we see her. Very unpersonable, sloppy and bordering on rude. Slow and unattentive... makes us feel like we are bothering her to ask for anything. Sometimes we get sweet attentive younger gals, but... More

The only good thing about our visit was the heat was blowing on us. In the summer the air conditioning blows on you and freezes you. The worst thing was that the service was SLOW. It wasn't busy at all but took forever to get our meal. My salad looked like it was made yesterday. My mashed potatoes were so... More

I mostly eat there at 2:00 a.m. after a night out with friends. This is a 24 hour restaurant and the servers there are so great to put up with the drunk people who go in there. They know how to laugh and have a good time. The food is always fantastic. Great place to go.

The air conditioner is via water in the roof, which leaks all over the highway creating a traffic hazard especially if icy in the winter, and is a waste of precious water in the summer when we are fighting forest fires and rationing water everywhere else. I heard that corporate sets the temperature for the restaurant. Anyhow, the food is... More

Visiting from out of town, companion and I asked a local for a breakfast recommendation. Without hesitation, Shari's was suggested. The breakfast I wanted to order was in a section on the menu only available until 10am. We arrived after 10am and asked the server about availability. She replied they were available but never said they would be several dollars... More

Shari's is my favorite for late night when most restaurants are closed. I like their service, food, atmosphere and I know at least one of their employees, most of the time. When I have worked half the night or have been at a concert I take my friends to eat somewhere where I know the food and people.

I"m a local, this is your run-of-the-mill Denny's type place. Basically it's a Denny's that gives the illusion that it's somewhat "fancier" by dimming the lights and raising the prices. I try to avoid places that have the big full color laminated photo-menus. Let me be a bit more positive: GREAT pie, wonderful Prime Rib (although the portion leave a... More

Our food was cold and cups empty. I've eaten at other Shari's and they were great this one was terrible. The waitress brought our drinks and we ordered our food and it was like she forgot about us. When they did bring our food it was cold and everyone at our table had empty glasses. I recommend not eating here.
