We used curb side today and met the manager,Naomi. She is a delight! we didnt dine in today but she made us feel valued and welcomed.

Had an awesome waiter named Brandy! She was attentive and caring. The food was better than I expected. The pie was good....marionberry cheesecake. That was a side salad. Forgot to take a pic of my burger...too busy eatin! ?

Love the pies, french toast options yummy. Far better than IHOP. Disappointed in the Caesar salad with Italian dressing. But still 5 stars.

Seriously disappointing. This is the second time we’ve eaten inside a restaurant since March of 2020 and it was not worth the $40 I just spent ? the French toast was eggy and soggy. I’m really not picky but I couldn’t finish it. The bacon wasn’t cooked, my daughters fruit cup wasn’t even good. We felt super rushed the whole time, the waitress was nice and provably just overworked. But not really thrilled to spend so much on soggy French toast and raw bacon.

Went in for dinner waitress was very nice. Ordered a steak mashed potatoes and a salad with a slice of cherry pie very worth it. All the food was amazing and fresh

Shari's always does a great job, and I try to visit them wherever I go! Best customer service always, as expected. Plus, they give you free pie so how can you go wrong???

Service was about as good as an understaffed restaurant would be during a pandemic, so no fault to our server, my applause to him for working during this.That being said, $14 for a sirloin steak that was 4 oz or less, smaller than a beef burger patty, is incredibly steep for a Shari’s. Lesson learned that I’ll never order steak here again.

Been here 10 min and already want to leave, waiter was not very nice or welcoming and seemed in a hurry even though it was dead. One other family in the whole place and now I know why.Abruptly asked for our drink order as we were walking to our seat, as soon as we ordered he gave us the tab...before we got our food or even looked at desserts. Was short and consistently walked away while still talking. Then later overhead him saying how there's not enough customers and he doesn't make enough. I get it, I was a server for years, but more reason to be extra nice so I can give a great tip, instead I felt like I was an inconvenience. AnywayGot food: Salad was made incorrectly (Asked for no cheese on the salad ?) picked it out because I already felt like I probably shouldn't say anything. However he did notice me picking it out and told the cook who was new and the Mgr did come apologize. So that was nice. Forgiven.My husband's food came out 5 min after mine, and was cold. Hes not picky so he ate it. Ordered chicken fried steak which was essentially a breaded hamburger patty. He said it had good flavor. Didn't eat veggies at all, ice cold.I ordered a side of fries which never came out.Never got any drink refills...ok finally after were done eating, he came back and I asked for one to go.I really want some pie but don't want to give these guys any more money. Maybe I'll take one home. Hopefully it's better than the food.Update: Key Lime pie was good but tiny slice!Also there's a new menu that doesn't have some basics, like a BLT or Wrap. Not their fault but I'm definitely going somewhere else next time.

Love the location it is a quick stop for curbside pick up. Freshly packaged, pleasing arrangement, ordered a french dip sandwich, they sent horse radish sause and au jus, with delicious thick cut fries. My teen son got chicken strips, normally he is left hungry but the portion was just right.

Kurtis Benedict

Good food at a good price. The waitresses are very nice, and there is a wholesome feel. Thanks everyone.

Pies were delicious. Waitress forgot tea / beverage. That was a bit disappointing. But restaurant was clean and COVID-19 guidelines were observed.

Tried going to dine inside with my mother, the guy up front said she had to put a mask on, she can't wear a mask and we told him that. He said than he couldn't allow us in. So we took our business to IHOP, which had no problem with her not wearing a mask. We were regulars there, and this is first time since start of pandemic that they refused to let us in with my mom not wearing a mask. Needless to say, we won't be back EVER AGAIN!


This is the filthiest most disgusting place I have ever been. The food is awful I had to give it a star but it deserves a review by the health department.
