Regularly visit Shari's while in Boise. Love the food and service. Great value. I like the sampler and the pancakes the best. We always have a good server. Easily accessible and close to our hotel.

If you like Perkins Restaurant an d Bakery, this chain is neck and neck with all aspects of dining pleasure; including the free pie day. The food was great and the service exceptional!

We went here for dinner one night after a long day of traveling. The server was very friendly and helpful, and they were very considerate about our orders. I will not hesitate to stop by, next time I am in the Boise area.

The eggs are always perfect. I don't know how they do it. The lunches -- um, not so much. The servers are extra-ordinary -- attentive and personable. A better-than-average coffee shop, if you want breakfast. Just don't order a salad.

Don't bother ordering the sirloin. I know they cook the steak by weight but when a "steak" is around 4 mouthfuls in size it is an embarrassment. Very disappointed and not happy at all - especially when the 4 mouthfuls costs $12! I won't bother...More

Dropped in here for lunch on a recommendation. Service was not good. We sat there for a long time before someone finally realized that our order had not been taken, then apoligized because they were "swamped" with a large table "over there". A hamburger looked...More

I could not choose between all the menu choices. They serve the entire menu all day long. This is a great small chain. I went to another location and the meal was just as good. Thanks Sharis.
