Been there multiple times and they always seem to have the same excuse for their terrible service. They seem to happen to always have someone call in sick and are short staffed every time we go there. You will wait any where from 25min to 45min to be served after you sat down and that's just to take your order.......I wouldn't recommend anyone go there!

Absolutely loved the caprese salad (fresh mozarella, basil leaves, tomatoes and delicious, slightly sweetened balsamic vinegar. Unfortunately, it was pulled from the menu recently. Wish they'd bring it back.

Tortilla soup, featured on Mondays, is delicious.

Lemon merengue pie is to die for.

Be sure to ask for condiment tray if you like your sandwiches dressed with mayo, mustard or ketchup.

$8.99 lunch specials are a great value.

While I am happy to have the local equivalent of a Denny's or Carrow's in the area for the all-important late-night pie run, Shari's could definitely take things up a notch or two.

The booth seating, child-friendly menus and staff were all great. The food was very average and uninspired. In a town that emphasizes "Farm to Fork, we were glad to see a menu or strawberry-oriented offerings. They were out of strawberry crepes, but my 7-year-old partner in crime opted for the pancakes. They tasted exactly like any other pancake you've ever had at a chain restaurant. I had a fairly dry and uninspired veggie burger with flavorless tomato slices, on an okay bun, the two-year-old went for the Mac and Cheese, which was, as near as we could tell, right out of a box. The other adult chose a chicken salad, which she said was okay.

Shari's has a nice little niche in this neighborhood, and it would be nice if they upped the quality and offerings a little more. We'll probably be back because it's so child-friendly, but won't be particularly excited about the food.

Waited 45 minutes patiently after giving our order to the server. Could not catch the servers eye to ask even for a coffee refill or the status of our meal. Finially I got up, found the server and asked for an update. I was very rudely rebuffed. "It's being handled." Actually she lost the order but never once stopped by our table after taking the order to give any exlpanation. Finally the manager stopped by to apologize and offered a free piece of pie. Needless to say, we won't be returning.

Shari's is starting to become one of our regular dining places it seems. We are never disappointed. We were there last night, and they run a special every Wednesday where you get free pie with dinner, so the place was packed.
In spite of how busy they were, the staff were relaxed and friendly, found us a table quickly. The dinner was superb. The service was attentive, friendly and personable.
We have been there several times now, I can recommend the pot roast... to die for! well, I exaggerate, but the food is to savor for sure!
And the portions are not so big that you leave feeling bloated. They are just right!
thanks to the staff!
