Sharis Restaurant & Pies - Livermore, CA
Sharis Restaurant & Pies
1116 E. Stanley Blvd.
Livermore, CA 94550
Sharis Restaurant & Pies is a restaurant chain from Sherwood, Oregon known simply as "Sharis" with most locations in Oregon and Washington. They have a new location in Livermore, which was the previous location for Bakers Square Restaurant on East Stanley Boulevard in the Trader Joe's shopping center next to Burger King.
We came here to Sharis for the first time tonight and decided to order breakfast for dinner. He had the Cinnama-sation Platter with eggs, bacon, sausage and hash browns ($9.49) and I had the Eggs Benedict ($9.49) which came with hash browns. Both of us thought that our breakfasts were pretty good...definitely better than Denny's or IHOP!
The nice thing we learned about Sharis is that they are open 24/7, so in Livermore they will give the Donut Wheel some competition as an all-night joint. They also offer free wi-fi, so that's a plus for a lot of people as it's not a common thing at Livermore restaurants. We had good service tonight as well, so Sharis is a place we would come back to again!
Update 10/15/09 - We came back for dinner...and for their "Free Pie Wednesday" special! He ordered the Chicken 'N Dumplings Skillet ($9.99) which was pretty good...but my Savory Lemon & Dill Salmon ($10.49) was overcooked & dry, the red skinned mashed potatoes were cold and the veggies were an inedible mush. On a better note, his S'mores Pie and my Peanut Butter & Chocolate Silk Pie were both delicious!
Update 10/17/09 - Back at Sharis in Livermore for a Charbroiled Burger with Cheddar Cheese ($8.29) and another Cinnama-sation Breakfast ($8.49). The burger was cooked very well overdone (even though I ordered it "medium") and after I told our server it wasn't cooked right, he told me that they only cook burgers that way. I wish he would have said something when I ordered it because I would have just ordered something else...
