One of the special treats I enjoy when visiting the Portland area is at least one (and usually more) stops at Shari's. My two visits to this restaurant this trip were excellent in every regard: Service was efficient, friendly, and accurate. Menu was varied, and,...as their greeting plaque says in the lobby, loaded with comfort food of ample portion size. Prices are competitive with similar type restaurants, such as Denny's and IHOP, but the menu is better. Pies are always good. Shari's app tracks visits (amount spent) and one earns a $5.00 discount for each 100 points earned ($100 dollars spent). To accumulate points, scan the bar code at the bottom of your bill into the Shari's app. App also offers special deals from time to time, plus a free slice of pie when one signs up. Very satisfied with this Shari's location.More

Had long relaxing lunch with a friend here today. We had Tuscan Chicken and Steak salads. Both salads were good and arrived after only a sort wait, Even though we had long ago finished our lunch, there was no pressure to pay the bill and...vacate our table.More

Shari's was recommended as close and easy to get to from our hotel. It was that but the food was average at best and the service was slow. Server was friendly when we saw her. Chicken was overcooked and tasted old. Overall not a good...experience.More

My husband and two daughters went here on Christmas Eve for lunch with my mother-in-law. Service was incredibly slow (we waited 35 minutes for our order of soup and 1/2 sandwiches), and then the 4 oz cup of soup was lukewarm and pasty. My sandwich...consisted of a piece of dry toast, one slice of bacon, one thin slice of tomato and a wimpy lettuce leaf. Not worth $10. Getting a piece of pie to go (the whole reason my MIL wanted to go here) took another 15 mins. By the way, the place was not busy -- we were only the fourth or fifth group there. Our waitress disappeared half way through (maybe on break?) but there was no one to pick up the slack. There were several other people working, but no one came up to check on us while she was gone. Finally, we saw the bus boy taking dishes out to tables, just before our waitress came back to take us our food. Bottom line: We won't be going back. There are so many other options in the area that serve much fresher food, with much better atmosphere and much friendlier service.More

Our 2nd waitress stated “I guess she left you” (referring to our original waitress). When the food was received, hash browns were over cooked and toast was burned. The other servings were very tasty.

Good food, variety of menu items for any time of day. Informal dining, friendly waitstaff, sort of a smaller version of Denny's. Clean, friendly place to eat.
