Slow service

We really wanted to go to Mama Jane's but it was a Sunday around 10 and people were standing waiting to be seated so we went across the street to Shari's. We were seated right away and drinks and the order werevtaken quickly but the food took forever to get. I had the cinnamon French toast with... read more

Ate breakfast here with the family and really enjoyed it. Very good. Service was also outstanding and prices were reasonable.

While the service was friendly enough, it just wasn't up to par. Service was slow and the kitchen was definitely off the ball. Perhaps the cook was having a rough night, or perhaps they were new. Whatever the problem, almost every order they sent out was wrong and had to be sent back. We did get free pie in the... More

Had their 1/2 sandwich with fruit and pie. Sandwich was good but fruit consisted of 10 grapes and 2 really hard slices of melon. Never got the pie - waitress disappeared. Left a $20 for the bill. Comforted by knowledge that I'll never be back.

The managers were jerks, everyone's order was wrong in some way, and drinks, soups and salads didn't come until about 2 minutes before the meal-they weren't even busy. This place is a poor experience from start to finish. We wanted a pie to go, went through 3 choices from the menu before they finally came back and said "yes, we... More

I asked for my meal to be slightly special made and they were happy to cater to my dietary needs. Not all places are willing to do that or if they do it takes twice as long to get your food. Not here at Shari's. We were seated quickly and checked on several times.

Open 24/7/365. Company is Oregon based. They source a lot of their food in the local region. Moderately priced, good sized plates of food, and yummy too. Just remember this is diner food, not an ecletic eatery or a Chicago steakhouse.

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
