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

We heard of this place on one of the food shows but it was even better than they said. This is a great place with an awesome outdoor sitting area. We split the Philly with cream cheese and it was definitely the best we had ever had. The margaritas were also a plus. We plan on going back again thus... More

I read all the mixed reviews and was leery to try this place..... After all, it was featured in Guy Fieri's DDD, that's usually not a good sign in my book! Located in a beautiful dense treed area along the Sandy River, this place looks like an old roadhouse. The interior isn't anything exciting... Large Bar with lots of seating.... More

I'm a Triple-D follower who made the detour to visit Shirley's and I was a little disappointed. The restaurant is beautiful and in a lovely location. The environment couldn't have been any nicer as it was a comfortable 75 degrees with good live jazz music complementing the setting. Honestly, I can confidently assert that this place is no diner, nor... More

This place rocks! They are so nice. They let us bring our bicycles into the patio while we ate and they filled our water bottles with ice water. No wait and the burgers and fries are amazing. Shirley is so kind and does a nice job of keeping customers coming back. I did notice on our way out on our... More

Got there about 30 minutes before closing on Sunday. Service from the bartender was awesome. Everything we ate, was to die for. My wife ate every morsel of her salad. We could not finish all the food. She had a massive pork chop that we both were pained to leave a bit of there. I had everything that swims, (it... More

We were there for breakfast on a Sunday morning. It was very busy and we had to wait for a table. The servers were very friendly and we ordered bloody marys and some breakfast items. The bloody marys were good as well as the food. The place has a nice atmosphere and it was fun to eat there.

We had some sandwiches and salad here for a late lunch. The Reuben was huge with 3 slices of bread. The salad dressings are homemade and delicious. This is a cozy spot to hang out. All wood interior. There is a nice outside area also. The server was friendly and professional. This would be good for families or groups too.

Yes, this place has been featured on Diners, Drive -ins and Dives, but that is where the excitement ends. I happen to live very close to Shirley's, but had never actually eaten there. I was honestly a little thrown off by the less than stellar reviews and high prices I found online, however, having lived in the area our entire... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find this place after a day spent hiking and exploring. It's an easy ten minute drive from Latourell Falls and the menu is extensive. Portions are huge, whether you are ordering a soup, salad or sandwich. I suggest sharing, unless you are a very big eater. The reuben and the veggie burgers were both excellent,... More
