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.

I haven't been to this location as I just moved back recently from Seattle this & I seriously wish I wouldn't have waited until the end of summer to visit!

The soup and salad deal is such a great value and tasted wonderful - lots of variety and options for both! My boyfriend & I sat outside on the patio which was less busy surprisingly, but enjoyed the sunset over the Columbia in a relaxed setting. The staff were attentive & made sure you were being helped. A very wonderful experience & will definitely be back to try the breakfast!

Very good service and very good food. There is a view of the river. A weird thing is you pay at the counter not to the waiter. Also, they have separate tip categories - one for the waiter and one for the cook - never seen this before - weird.

We have eaten here a few times in the past when we come into town for a visit. They have recently "remodeled" actually tore down and built all new restaurant that takes advantage of being closer to the river. What a great improvement! The interior is very nicely decorated. The food is really good. Great place for breakfast, many many choices. Service is top notch. Seating outside on there patio/deck area was very nice. It has a full bar. Big salad bar. Eat here for breakfast, lunch or dinner and you won't be disappointed.
