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.

We stopped here for lunch on a road trip and were really pleased. This is one of those great places with a beautiful wood bar. The service was great and lunch was delicious.

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.

the Shire is a little place in chehalis and it sets just off the main drag. It's small but the food is great and the waiters/waitress' are wonderful and helpful. We go there when we want a great meal and not in a hurry. A must try place to eat when in Lewis County.

We have never been to The Shire until tonight. We had the BEST dinner ever!! The chicken with crab had so much crab on top! Not the usual one measly piece with filler. It was excellent!! We had two appetizers, lobster & prawn, and the other one was steak on skewers. It was the best meal we have had in... More

A really great spot in an area like Chehalis. It's got a hole in the wall look to it but the food is not typical. I've had ribeye steak and recently a chicken crab vegetable dish that was wonderful. I've got about six beers on tap a nice wine selection and a full bar. There's a wide open area with... More
