We’ve eaten here twice over the last year, both times on warm summer days where it is enjoyable to sit amongst trees and nature near the river in the late afternoon. Our server was exceptional, friendly and informative. 2 of us had fish and chips and they were well enjoyed. Another of our party had the halibut special and I had crab cakes. The food was good, we’ll be back as it is close to home!

Was taking a friend out for a birthday lunch so she suggested Tippy Canoe. Being a warm sunny day, we thot eating out on the patio wud be refreshing. How wrong we were!!! The patio itself is pleasant but dusty n u cannot see the river unless one is right up on the fence. The “rock” tables n backless chairs r novel but unbearable for sitting any length of time. And there was no unbrella over most of these tables. There were a few “regular” covered patio tables n chairs with backs so we choose one. We ordered drinks n it was Happy Hour so this was good!!! We looked at the menu n were unpleasantly surprised!!! The cheapest item on the menu that we found was a sandwich at $16 n it went UP from there!!! Cannot comment on the food as we left when we finished r drinks.
This establishment has been around for many years n was a fun place to go in days gone by .. when it was affordable!!! Shirley’s was added to the name maybe 4-5 years ago but she seems to be having difficulty building up clientele. I recently read that it “has been slow because of the Eagle Creek Fire” last year. I do not believe at these prices that things will pick up any time soon. Pleasant atmosphere but VERY hard on the pocketbook!!!

My wife and I were staying in Troutdale and she mentioned that Guy Fieri had gone to a restaurant near there and it turned out to be Shirley's Tippy Canoe. We went on a Friday around 10:30, so there weren't a lot of people. The owner led us outside, since it was a beautiful Oregon day. It felt like we were at a camp (in a good way). Breakfast was really good. The only downside was the cleanliness of the bathroom. My wife really liked the decorations and remembered the owner was really spunky with Guy. I really wanted an omelette, but the prices were shockingly high, but my second choice was solid.

Big portions tast homemade. Had a refreshing mimosa to start and lunched on their veggie burger. Sat outside and enjoyed their beautiful grounds. Staff was friendly. A must go to when in Troutdale.

Fun place to go. Owner is hands on and fun to talk to. A little expensive for their menu items. Close to the river but no river views. Wonderful outdoor dining with fire pits and usually a band on the weekends.
