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.

We ate here when we arrived late in the evening. The food was wonderful. Two of us had the salmon and both of us put it as one of the best tasting salmon dishes that we have ever eaten. I should mention that one of us is very picky about how salmon is prepared. One of our party has severe,... More

It's the simple things that make me return to a restaurant, besides good food, such as attentiveness by wait staff, clean tables (table clothes), glasses and silver ware, no flies, and staff that appreciates my business. The Shire knows how a restaurant should be ran, hands down, and the food is exceptional for Chehalis.

This is a great little spot in Chehalis, the people are very nice and it's amazing what the chef can do in his little corner of the place! We've been there several times and everything has always been well prepared and very tasty! There is the front part of the restaurant with some smaller tables, and another further back that... More

I didn't know what to expect in this little old town. Delicious garlic bread with marinara sauce, big salad with the dinner. Dinner was baked coconut cod - delicious. Don't let the outside fool you.
