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

We have frequented sterling's for many years. The food and service has always been good. The new building is without question spectacular compared to the 30 plus year old building.really gives a great first impression. My only negative is that they need to hire more service staff. The staff was product for the old restaurant, but this place is 3... More

This has always been one of my favorite places to eat and now that the new building is up, it ranks a few notches higher. Great food and wait staff, however the tall ceilings seem to have made it a little noisier.

This resturaunt is locally owned and has been for years before local was cool. My friend who was a working mom called Sterlings her family's kitchen table. It was where their family gathered weekly and met for meals. A down home feel on classic food done well with great service. They have recently opened a brand new facility on the... More

The name says it all. This Richland landmark is indeed famous for its steaks, seafood and salad bar. It is also famous for serving a delicious breakfast until 2:00 P.M. daily. But, after 30 years, or so, I understand that the current building will soon be torn down and replaced by a new one next door.

My husband and I were looking for a decent meal after traveling all day. This restaurant had a terrific salad bar, which included soups as well. Everything was fresh, even though it was late in the day. I recommend it.
