Found this place just by driving by on a scenic drive on Hwy. 30 and decided to try it. The place has a friendly vibe and the halibut fish & chips and patty melt are above average. They are know for their house made corned beef but we didn't get to try it. The chips are also house made and... read more

We've driven by this place numerous times, and decided to finally stop for lunch today. Bad decision. It was a nice day so we decided to eat outside, as did most of the diners. The place was not packed, however it took 25 minutes for the waitress to take our order. She made no additional contact with us until 40... More

Stayed in Troutdale passing thru. Read on line about Shirley's Tippy Canoe and how great it was. When we walked in right away we noticed how dated and dingy it looked. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We ordered the tomato bisque soup and a French dip sandwich. The soup was so salty that it couldn't be eaten, the... More

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
