“I'd rather starve than eat here again”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

The Shari's franchise should close this place. It does not hold up to the Shari's brand. Not only was the service horrible but the food was worse. After waiting for 5 minutes to be seated/acknowledged, I had to say something to the waitress after she walked by us 4 times. Once our food arrived, we never saw our waitress again. My husband or I had to get up & track down any waitress just for help. Which is not that easy when you have kids!! But it wasn't the service that made this place horrible. It was the food! It was uneatable. And what bites you did take did not settle with our stomach. If you have to stop & get some coffee or bite to eat. Skip this place, go across the street & get it at Safeway!! Eat it in your car. You'll be better off!!

ok for a meal while on the road. Have eaten there a couple of times. But, not really a place to brag about.

“We will NEVER return”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

The food is decent, pretty standard for Shari's, but the service is the worst. I live in this town and have been often...NEVER once have I experienced acceptable service at this Shari's. I will never return to this Shari's, I would rather drive the 20 minutes to Hood River Shari's.
