Save Room For The Pie

I usually don't order off the senior menu (too few choices & small portions), but the waitress told me the beef stew and mashed potatoes was large. She was correct. The stew was very good and nearly filling. I had a glass of white zinvendel vine - it was very good and a nice size. The told me the... read more

Ok in appearance since it's a newer building but needs basic maintenance fixes throughout building. The food is basic in quality and the employees lack incentive due to the corporate structure they work under. Been a customer for years at both gorge locations and you can say I've seen them all go down hill. The lottery room brings in meth... More

I ordered a cappuccino and it was made from powder in and instant machine. I am a vegetarian and the food I ordered clearly tasted like bacon. I will not go back.

They have some very serious issues at this Sharis that Corporate must address immediately: 1) Waitress seemed like she was out of it. After taking our order, she quickly returned to our table to ask us for confirmation of our order. 2) Even though the restaurant was far from reaching capacity, it looked nearly empty when we arrived, we waited,...

We were in The Dalles on Sunday, May 4, 2014 and were staying at the Super 8. We were happy to see a Shari’s nearby. This one was easy to get to from our motel. It was very clean and the staff was cheerful and friendly. I noticed right away that this restaurant seemed quieter than most, but it was... More

We honestly tried 3x's to find a place to eat out here! Breakfast-How can a Shari's screw up a breakfast? No requested onions in the hash browns. Burnt toast/wrong toast...floppy fatty bacon vs requested crisp bacon. Lunch-their "new potato salad" is disgusting! Their sandwiches are scarce on the meat choice. Dinner-BBQ ribs--nothing on them--That was not a serving size! The... More

Typical chain restaurant food with just average service. If your looking for a bargain you get what you pay for. That's all that needs to be said.

If youve been to a Shari's you know what to expect. Good range of menu items, fairly clean but an in and out joint for old folks.

The Shari's franchise should close this place. It does not hold up to the Shari's brand. Not only was the service horrible but the food was worse. After waiting for 5 minutes to be seated/acknowledged, I had to say something to the waitress after she walked by us 4 times. Once our food arrived, we never saw our waitress again.... More
