Very good lunch

We went here for lunch and were able to eat in their back yard. Had clam chowder and several different burgers. All very good, only downside was that it was just too much food.

Went yesterday for breakfast. We were told to seat ourselves.. ordered our coffee..decaf had to be brewed. Server took order. Finally brought decaf which she then stopped into my cup splashing it all over the table And me! All she said was sorry. Food prices are way too high. $16.50 for a ham and cheese omelette that wasn't special. We... More

What a beautiful location and charming place to eat, meet friends and family or just watch the world go by. My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast on a Sunday morning recently. He had the seafood omelet and I had the delicious bread pudding French toast. Yum to all! Our server was Shirley herself and she was a delight... More

After reading the menu on line, we decided to give Shirley's a try. Guy Fieri, host of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives can't be wrong, can he? We enjoyed indoor seating, although they have entertainment out on their patio. Along with that the foot tall Bloody Mary was to die for! Our seafood was excellent, huge portions. We had to take...

Despite it's location right off of the Sandy River, a river view is not part of your dining experience. You enter into the bar area, which has TVs for sports viewing and is decked out with sports pennants. Lodge like feel to the decor otherwise. We sat out back, in the outdoor area. Since we were a group of 9... More

The have indoor and outdoor seating and I recommend the outdoor patio on a nice day. You will probably have to wait once seated because they are usually busy during the summer season. The food and view are very good, I had the club sandwich. The turkey is real and tasty. The sandwich is huge!!

The outdoor patio was great! The food was delish and the portions huge. Well worth the trip! The inside is nice also.

Last Fall (2014) we stopped here on our way to Portland from Boise and had a wonderful meal. This July we purposefully went out of our way to stop here again. It seemed like the menu was different and considerably more expensive. I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak dinner; the CF steak as was the gravy it was sitting in... More

Excellent place to eat along the Sandy River just outside of Troutdale. The building has loads of character, and Shirley the owner is like a local Icon. It is fun to have her rattle off the menu by heart which she knows so well, with such unique descriptions and salesmanship. The food is good old fashioned comfort food and you... More

To be fair... We only ate breakfast there and on a Sunday. The food was good. We had the seafood omelette and the bread pudding French toast. The portions were huge and the prices average for a tourist type place although there seemed to be quite a few locals there too. I would try it again when passing through the... More
