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

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 blueberry... 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
