Good locally owned restaurant.

Food is quality and the service good. Locally owned restaurant that is family friendly but also has an area where minors are not allowed. Varied menu. Was there with a large group and service was quick and everybody enjoyed their selection.

We've attended numerous events and have eaten at the Shire on more than one occasion. In the little town of Chehalis where like so many other places where it seems that you may only have the likes of "Applebys" and other large franchise houses its a challenge to find good food and liquor in a relaxed 'supper club" atmosphere.

We had to send one of our dinners back for more cooking, but end results were all good. Seasonings were flavorful without being overwhelming. Vegetables were properly cooked. This place is very small and intimate.

This historic bistro/bar served our 70 guests with wonderful hors de oeuvres and buffet dinner. We wanted a tasty and casual reception and Joel Wall and staff of four were incredibly easy to work with and delivered wonderful food from this tiny kitchen. Don't be put off by the vast spaces: rent bistro tables, cover with long cloths and flowers... More

This is the first review I have ever written but, our experience was so good at The Shire that I felt compelled to write a review. We are from out of town and made reservations at The Shire for 14 on a Friday evening. Our group turned out to be 20. The owner Joel and his partner/chef (sorry, can't remember... More

Went to a wedding reception there. Good atmosphere, friendly staff, good food. Haven't been there when it was opened to the public, but I'm sure it would be a great place to eat.

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
