We have never been to The Shire until tonight. We had the BEST dinner ever!! The chicken with crab had so much crab on top! Not the usual one measly piece with filler. It was excellent!! We had two appetizers, lobster & prawn, and the other one was steak on skewers. It was the best meal we have had in... More

A really great spot in an area like Chehalis. It's got a hole in the wall look to it but the food is not typical. I've had ribeye steak and recently a chicken crab vegetable dish that was wonderful. I've got about six beers on tap a nice wine selection and a full bar. There's a wide open area with... More

Anniversary dinner with hubby. Not quiet and intimate, but we knew what to expect. Great food. Shrimp was cooked perfectly (garlic shrimp) and hubby had chicken crab savoy. Very rich and tasty. The menu is small (which we like) but it was still hard to choose. The kitchen appears to be up front ? and when the exhaust fan came... More

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.
