Really good food with a lot of variety in the menu. Several crab items. I had the Eggs Benedict with crab cakes on fried green tomatoes. Delicious but pricey at $26.99. Even during a season with inflated crab prices I've paid a lot less. Nevertheless, I would return. Nice outdoor seating area at the inner harbor location.

This was our second visit to Miss Shirley's and the food was good, but I hardly think the long wait is worth the wait. Go early is good advice. The menu is certainly different than any other breakfast place. I think we enjoyed the first visit, a few years ago, more than this last one. I read some of the... More

No they do not take reservations, and yes, you will have to wait. But....it is worth it. The funky monkey bread is a must, but don't eat too much--the portions are healthy here so save room for the rest of your meal. I think they have the best sweet potato fries I have ever eaten. Fresh, crisp and addictive. I... More

I really great treat! You may end up waiting a good long time, but it's worth it. Haven't had anything but delicious meals and plan to come again soon. Did I say to come early?

We happened upon Miss Shirley's as we were walking along Pratt Steet in Baltimore to take in the bay and to pop into a noted restaurant, or two. It's nearly across the street from the aquarium and, if you blink fast, you can walk or drive right by it. Big mistake if you do! This was truly a GREAT find... More

let me first start off by saying there are two locations one in downtown Baltimore near the aquarium and the other is located in Baltimore on cold spring. Both locations have great food and service. The location downtown is smaller than the one on cold spring, which seems to have longer waits. But the view is better downtown... So you... More

This is a very good restaurant. My husband and i chanced upon it after church on a Sunday morning. We were there for the weekend and wanted to try something unique to Baltimore. We saw the people converged around the front of the restaurant and decided to give it a try. We knew we were in for a wait -... More

Walked here from the National Aquarium. Fantastic menu. Hard to decide on a meal. I opted for a soft shell crab club sandwich. It was amazing. Dining guests happily gobbled up the chicken and biscuits and the crab cakes/eggs benedict. Loved the grits! Wish I lived closer to it. I'd be in there every day!

Casual, fast service, very knowledgeable about allergies, great food. On all counts the perfect breakfast and lunch place. Too bad they are not open for dinner. Could eat their food all day long. Huge menu.

Had an excellent breakfast on Father's Day. Get there early. We arrived at 10 am and waited 40 minutes for a table. The wait was worth it. Everyone in our party was very happy with their meals. I had the berry waffle sampler. It was delicious. Portions were very filling. The only negative was a mistake with the order. A... More
