Food was excellent, service exceptional. Lovely patio view overlooking Kempenfelt Bay. Quiet refined atmosphere, perfect for a quiet relaxing dinner Shirley's house salad with grilled chicken was nicely done and perfect for a hot summer night. Seafood penne was excellent as well

I have had lunch at Shirley's many times as it's just a block away from where I used to work prior to retiring. The food is sensational and so is the service. Nice locale for a view of the lake as well.

When I lived in Barrie for part of my teenaged years in the early 1960s the waterfront, at the west end of Kempenfelt Bay, was ringed by a railway line and there were no condominiums. I remember getting my first-ever egg rolls from Roy Lem's...More
