If you are willing to take a small beautiful drive up the Columbia River Highway, the trip is well worth it. This is one of my favorites places. The staff is friendly the scenery is gorgeous and the food is wonderful. They have a beautiful outside dining area and are located on the banks of the Sandy River. Evenings there... More

Me and my mom stopped by here on our way back from the Bonneville Dam and she heard about this place on the Food Network, so she wanted to try this place out and needless to say she and I weren't disappointed. They serve really good portion sizes and then some. The Sloppy Joe's are the bomb and they do... More

I had to take some of the meat off in order to actually eat my club sandwich. The staff could be a bit friendlier as it wasn't busy and our server seemed rushed or annoyed with our presence. It could have been the toddler with us but whatever, it was still a pretty good meal.

Shirley's place is a cute, friendly spot by the river where you can relax, listen to great music, and eat awesome food. The drinks are wonderful too, but be prepared to spend a little extra. It's not a cheap date, but well worth it to check out in the summertime especially when you can sit outdoors and listen to the... More

We went after seeing the place on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives." The menu seems very comprehensive, but a bit expensive for the dinners. Even the daily specials we over $30. I ordered their Ruben which differed from any Ruben I had ever eaten before. It had turkey added to the corned beef and the whole thing was shredded onto a... More

My mom saw this restaurant on TV so we decided to check it out. It was about an hour drive from my house but it was completely worth it. I got the swiss french dip and my mom got the sloppy joe, both were amazing. They give you HUGE portions, I ate half of mine and then took the rest... More

Several days ago, my wife and I stopped at Shirley's along the Sandy River on our return from a trip up the Columbia River Gorge. We weren't expecting much, but we were quite pleased with what we found. There are several seating areas, including a first room with TV's, which was typically a bit loud, then a quieter room where... More

Large portions, homemade fries, it was a cold rainy day and we walked in the place and it was warm, great smells, and great service. the place was casual and nice and... More

Read the reviews and decided to give it a try. Mom drove from The Dalles and we were 30 minutes away. Wow, we saw an adult Bald eagle while we were in the parking lot, waterfalls and the Sandy river on the drive up. It's like walking in to a cozy cabin, fireplace, and knotty pine walls. Charming not tacky.... More
