Picked this one because of the salad bar and the advertisement of 6 different soups. We didn't feel like a huge meal. The soups were excellent! Went back for seconds on the clam chowder. My husband loved the soups so much he hardly visited the salad bar portion. The set up was a little awkward on the salad bar portion the toppers that go on the salad were at the beginning not the end. Was a little confused about whether you could add the salad bar to a meal, but since I only wanted the salad bar I picked that option. They did not have ginger ale for the mixed drinks and the ginger beer option did not work out for us. Can not vouch for any of the other food. But if you are in the mood for soup this is the place. Also, the restaurant is situated on the Columbia River and has a nice view from the dining room and take a walk on the riverwalk afterward.

This is a great restaurant anytime of the day. My favorite is breakfast. They have a great variety of omelets, and Sterling's has the best coffee in anywhere. They also have an excellent salad bar with great soups.

Sterlings has been here a long time. They have great breakfasts. They've recently rebuilt the restaurant right next to the river - with a great view and the ability to sit outside.
They have a great buffet table with a lot of choices for soups and salads. Very well prepared and comprehensive in selections. The servers are mostly great - especially ones that have been Sterlings a long time. Sometimes, the newer ones need a bit more training - but if you mention it to the owners, they take care of it quickly.
I do wish they would get some gluten free items - like some kind of bread - or pasta. Several people have spoken to them about this - but for some reason they are reluctant to do anything to accommodate those people who can't have gluten. They almost seem rigid in this regard.
Other than the gluten free issue - Sterlings delivers a good, solid meal at reasonable to high prices.

The last time we were at Sterling's they were still in the old (I mean OLD) building. It was dark, cramped and way past it's prime. The new building was built in the back parking lot of the old building. It feels clean, open, fresh, with lots of windows and light. We sat out on the covered patio and it was great.
The service and food are very good and the prices are decent.
