“Family Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Great location, nice walk from Days Inn. There were 7 of us for breakfast. The menu was very varied with many wonderful choices. The only problem was we all ate too much. Definitely a must go for breakfast. Their signature dishes with crab were out of this world. I loved the fried green tomatoes.

“Turn On the Fans””
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We went to Shirley's for breakfast. The diner is located in a former Ihop with basically the same breakfast menu. Even though we arrived during mid-morning Saturday rush, we were seated promptly. Our waitress was friendly and promptly brought out two fresh, hot pots of coffee, ala Ihop. Nothing special to note about the food itself. The only problem we had was that we left smelling like our meal. Evidently, their exhaust fan(s) were not working that day. Had to change clothes after the visit. Not sure we want to chance another saturation of grease odor.
