Well, what can I say? This had to be one of our "diners, drive-in and dives" best. The food (breakfast) was unbelievable. Fresh and tasty. They really do use local food. Homemade cooking at it's best. I had Eggs Benedict, my husband had a Seafood Omelet. Both meals were Xcellent.

One of our favorite places to dine outside in nice weather, Shirley's has a huge outdoor patio. The food is always well prepared. Be forewarned it is a little on the high priced side which may be because it has been featured on national TV in the past two years. The last time we were there we were serenaded by... More

Nice food, good service, great live music, and beautiful outside feasting. My bride, mom and dad, aunt and uncle, and me all enjoyed it.

Avoid this place unless you have all day to hang out. Had to get up and ask for service after waiting and watching employees go by for over 10 min. The food is just OK definitely not worth the exorbitant prices. Burger was under cooked and the fries were drowned in oil on the plate.

We needed to entertain some clients for my husbands work and they said they were wanting to eat seafood so we picked somewhere close. Their salads were cold and crisp which is a must in summer months. I tried a bite of the clam chowder and it was pretty darn good. The only thing that was annoying was not allowing... More

Absolutely one of the best burgers ever. Period. Great, great clam chowder. Disappointed in the deep fried prawns. They were a little overdone and not very many for the price. Fantastic french dip-one of the best ever. Great fries, and good portions. Anxious to try their fish 'n chips and their breakfasts.

For last night in Portland, we went to Shirley's Tippy Canoe and although we arrived before dinner menu, they let's us order dinner. Sea Chicken was excellent and Alan was a great waiter!

This doesn't look like much when you are driving by. It's bigger and better than it looks! Sitting on the Sandy River along the Historic Columbia River Highway it is worth a stop. The patio during nice days is great with stone tables. Polished granite! We have breakfast often here and I have to say that Shirley has the best... More
