The restaurant has a wonderful, warm atmosphere. The wait staff were polite, offered great suggestions and never left us wanting for more water or anything we needed. The food was AMAZING. Best meal we've had in Lewis County since moving here in 2008. We arrived...More

Nice location in old town Chehalis. Cozy old time bar feel except for the lighting. Had one of the best Bratwurst dinners I’ve ever had. Bartender knows his way around a martini too. Made perfect. Only problem is the lighting over the bar. The ambiance...More

Places like The Shire are why I love Trip Advisor. I never would have found such a nondescript place without TA, and would have missed an excellent meal. The atmosphere is quiet, but with a good music selection. The waiter was just right -- attentive,...More

Looking for a place for lunch and saw The Shire while driving by. Reviews looked pretty good, so we thought we'd give it a try. What a nice surprise! The Bourbon Whiskey Mushroom Burger with salad was our choice and it did not disappoint! The...More

We stopped here en-route from Portland to Seattle. What a nice surprise...good food and local color. The wooden bar and a large wooden cabinet were most beautiful. There were posters, photos, antiques. All were very interesting. Service was great, as was the food. All four...More

The mushroom burger on the lunch menu is hands down the best burger I have had. Beer is good and cold, no domestic beer on tap but they do have it avaliable via bottle.

This was a nice quiet place. A little more expensive than I expected. It's a nice place to stop and have a drink. The food menu is limited.
