My husband and I ate here two mornings in a row. Food and service were excellent. Love these types of cafes. Come hungry because they give you plenty of food!

While this is a small town cafe and aesthetics are virtually absent, the food and service was excellent. The biscuits and gravy, eggs, and hash browns I dined on hit the spot and were well prepared. The pricing was fare and the waitress I had was gracious, yet very soft spoken. If you desire an atmosphere of a higher quality... More

Ate here for breakfast and got the Medium Breakfast which is 2 eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, 2 pieces of toast and homefries. I like my eggs over easy and these were cooked perfectly. The bacon was chewy, which is how I prefer it, so if you like it crisp, you'd better ask for it. The homefries were nice and... More

Not much to say but, good food in a hometown environment. They were very busy on a Saturday morning when we were there. We waited a bit longer than I wanted to for our food, but it was totally worth it! Also, the service was AMAZING!!

I actually couldn't believe this place was ranked number two. Good job Shirley's! Initially when I walked in I thought I made a bit of a mistake seeing a heating unit barely hanging on the door to heat the room. But the girl set us down and was prompt in taking our drink orders. It was a bit messy in... More

Get here for breakfast no later than 9am if you want any food other than mushy burgers. They always run out of gravy and breakfast staples long b4 they stop serving. If you do have the bad luck to miss breakfast pass on lunch it's not worth it.

Shirley's is a local little diner/restaurant without any fancy decor, etc but Shirley tries so hard to take good care of her customers. I have been involved in a small women's group that meets there every Thursday morning and she knows our orders by heart. We are allowed to continue to sit there long past our meal eating and would...

We have been going to Shirley's for 15+ years and have loved every meal. This is our "go to" place for breakfast when we are at Table Rock Lake. Everything we have ever eaten there has been excellent. It is a small place, no frills, no fancy decor, and serving breakfast & lunch only. It looks a bit old on... More

Breakfast was pretty good. Pancakes were really tasty. Small place, no frills, kind of a step back in time- liked that. Service was a little slow, the restaurant was not busy. We had time to wait, so it wasn't a problem.

I went for breakfast Friday am. Had eggs, hash browns and pancakes. The hash browns were those little squares, which were a surprise, but they were deep fried crispy, and tasty. The service was very friendly and I even got the chance to meet Shirley and tell her about Tripadvisor! It is a small place, so go early. The prices... More
