The food was good and the server was sweet. Some syrup got spilled when she was serving us and got on my son's shoe. She insisted on taking his shoe and cleaning it herself. This is not a "glamour" restaurant but the service is great and the food was good and you definitely get value for your money.

The good: Nice wait staff. Large and varied menu (standard Shari's fare). Decent tasting and presented breakfast, although portion didn't seem to justify the price. The bad: The noise level from kitchen and wait staff throwing clean and dirty silverware and dishes into respective clean and dirty receptacles near our table made conversation impossible. After 10 minutes of this auditory... More

I ordered the country fried steak and eggs and hash-browns. It was absolutely the perfect amount. Well done!

Friendly staff, good food and great pies. This is where my fiance' and I would come for a date before we got married. It stays open late and your cup is never empty. We come for the memories and PIE!

Pleasant staff, but out of what I ordered for dinner on a Saturday night? Someone needs to do a better job of ordering. Pie was good. Store is really dirty.

Dinner was terrible,service was worse. Pie was good that's all. To many other options to go back. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. Restaurant was full and only 3 servers, long wait to get in. I thought it was because of good food NOT

Always stop here when visiting our daughter in Lacey. Though it is a chain, they run it like a family restaurant. The food is always made just right and service is great. Wonderful pies.

All Shari's seem to be the same place but the people make the difference. Our waitries was very good and attentive. Did not seem real busy but the food did take some time to get to our table. Had the Pot Roast and it did need some extra gravy. All in all the food was good and the price fair.... More

Shari's is a great place to stop while travelling for a good meal and super friendly service. The burgers are great, and be sure to save room for dessert. They have a HUGE selection of pies that are excellent. If you are really in the mood for dessert, try the pie milkshakes. They literally take a piece of pie and... More
