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

Ordered our food. ...40 minutes later...no food....and that is after watching the couple before us and the couple after us get their food....eat...pay and leave. I am patient but this was ridiculous.

On a road trip looking for a healthy breakfast. Found Bob's Oatmeal on the menu. Comes with craisins, brown sugar and nuts. Ask for extra nuts. Yum.

Affordable, typical American-style menu with lots of fattening sweets (pies). The food was average, not great. The decor was 50s "diner". The wait staff was very personable but a bit overworked. Good for families. Not good for romantic dates or fine cuisine unless you are into diners. When traveling, this fit the bill.
