SHirley's is a must. There food and ambiance is amazing. We got to meet the owner Shirley and we even saw her a few days after at Charly's (karaoke bar) with her husband!

Great service and food. She was nice enough but to cook for us between 11 and 12 when they are normally closed so we could make our flight. Large tip advised for this service.

Shirley takes pride in her menu choices and her food presentation. We ate at several locations on Great Exuma during our stay but enjoyed Shirley's the most. She even created a special menu for Thanksgiving. Bravo!

Fish Fry is a group of restaurants along the hwy. Shirley’s appeared to be the cleanest option. We had a variety of entrees and loved everything we ordered except for the pizza. It was okay, but nothing special. All of the fish, lobster, and shrimp...More

one word: COCONUT PIE. It was so unique and the fresh coconut is to die for. The house BBQ with peas and rice and plantains is a must. The conch fritters are some of the best on the island.
