Great hospitality

Called from the road 30 minutes before arriving. They were all set for us (me, the wife, and two kids) when we rolled in, even calling me by name. The food was delicious, the waiter's suggestions and assistance truly helpful, and the bar itself a work of art. Wish we lived closer. A great spot.

Our friends took us to The Shire for dinner on our last night of vacation. It has a quiet, relaxing atmosphere with an upscale menu, beer selection and wine list. All of the dinners were delicious. We had our "tween" kids with us and thankfully they will eat anything, but this is definitely not a place to take young children... More

make you reservation early to make sure to get a cut of the best Prime rib in Lewis County, and to see a over 100 year old Bar made from Real old Wood.

My husband and I stopped in at The Shire just to try it out. We were delightfully surprised at how awesome it was! The atmosphere is very cool - lots of historic ambiance. The food was absolutely gourmet - DELICIOUS! My dinner was a crab stuffing on fish. It was amazing. My husband had a seafood pasta dish. We also... More

My husband and I visited The Shire in Chehalis, Washington last night, and had a great meal. I ordered the crab topped chicken filet, and my husband ordered the prime rib sandwich. Both were absolutely delicious. The prime rib was medium rare, exactly as ordered, and the crab on my dish was so fresh and delicious. We will be back.

FIrst let me say that I had a nice lunch there a few weeks before. So I took a small group to dinner expecting a nice evening. We had about 8 at the table and it was not crowded. The service was adequate if not great, but there was universal dislike of the meals that were served. Several had the... More

The Shire looks like a bar but what it really is is a pretty good place to eat. Judging from the menu, they take pride in what they do here. They serve food till 9 pm and I went about 8 pm. I don't know if they have a lunch menu, but the one I looked at was all steaks,... More

This is our favorite place for a good early evening meal. This is a bar, so if you want quiet dining go early. Catfish and Steaks are great. Try mussels for an appetizer.
