I was really looking forward to my first visit to Shirelys Tippy Canoe, a friend from overseas was coming into town and I wanted a really fun place with great food to take him. The atmosphere and the staff are fabulous. Shirley and her other half are completely lovely. The food on the other hand left me lacking a reason... More

Good service and food. A bit pricey. Good outside seating when the weather is nice. Plenty of parking.

The food was just average, the service was good and the patio area is just adorable. It was nice on a warm day.

We love a drive out to Shirley's! Extra good food- a little $pendy but a gorgeous drive. Homey. Wonderfully attentive staff and of course, SHIRLEY ! 💞

I had seen this restaurant on diners drive-ins and dives. We were passing by at suppertime and decided to stop. I had seen that the sloppy Joe was very good and that is what I wanted. It was not on the dinner menu but the waitress told me that it was on the lunch menu and I could still get... More

The food was delicious, but as we were leaving my husband and my dad heard them discussing my daughter and the mess she had left (she was 11 months and learning to eat). Yes, we left a mess and yes, they were probably annoyed but my dad had left ove a 20% tip and my husband ten dollars on top... More

This place was one of my favorite stops in Portland. We had a wedding in Troutdale and stayed there a few days. Driving down the senic highway we were on we decided to stop and glad we did. The location is top notch, their outdoor patio is one of the best I've ever seen. Lots of seating outside and firepits... More

Went here because my daughter saw it on TV. Good food and service but had a severe sticker shock when we got the bill for our lunch "specials". At least we can say we've been there.

Quaint place on Sandy River - not busy on a Monday night - which was fine. Food was OK - not what I thought it would be after seeing it on triple DDD, we've lived in area for 10+ years and this was our first time for dinner there. My husband and I thought it was just OK and not... More
