Sterling's remodel and re-siting on it's property is a success. And so is the expanded menu! The acoustics not so much. The open beams create a less than serene dining experience.

Breakfast with my mom. Food was excellent! I definitely recommend the Sterlings egg Benedict with bacon and avocado...so yummy. The view is gorgeous even when bleak and cold!

Walked into the New Sterlings at 8pm on October 26th. Four employees at the front desk talking to each other. I had to interrupt them after 3 minutes to ask to be seated. The first observation was the noise and loud music, coming from the bar area. What a downer. After 5 minutes in the booth, I got up and... More

WOW, they did a beautiful job creating the new restaurant! River views, an outdoor patio, creative decor, and a full bar. We had excellent service and the food was delicious. All of the windows give you a great view from anywhere in the restaurant, but the booths on the back wall are the best. I miss the old retro-style sign... More

I wrote a negative review about the Sterlings in Kennewick and that still stands. This is the original restaurant totally rebuilt just behind the old one and bordering the Columbia river. Huge windows give a good view even if you don't have a window table. Had a family gathering there yesterday and the food and service was typically Sterling's great.... More

We came on a Sunday after 11. That is about when everyone is out of church. We walked in and I was abbot worried because there was a full lobby. After leaving my name with the hostess my next concern was I would not hear her when she shouted out our name. Yes, shouted. Not walk up to me and... More

Sterlings offers a little bit of everything. Even the pickiest of eaters can find something they like. The soup and salad bar is exceptional. A huge variety is offered. The soups are amazing. I love the beef and barley soup. The restaurant offers steaks, hamburgers, sandwiches and pasta. One of our favorite places to go!

There are 3 of these in the Tri-Cities. It's a great breakfast place. They have an extensive menu. I like the shrimp salad, it also comes with smoked salmon but I have them substitute the smoked salmon with shrimp. The new building in Richland is beautiful with a view of the river. They have a $15 lobster dinner on Friday... More

These folks have a great salad bar, the service is outstanding, and the dinner and breakfast we ate there was excellent. The view of the river was a big bonus. These folks have done it right and its a great place to go.

Sterlings has been a staple of the Tri-Cities community restaurants, for as long as I can remember. For a good reason, they are the best all around American restaurant in town! Amazing services and food is always soooo tasty. They're menu has most everything for everyone and I have never had a guest who didn't want to come back, because... More
