Great spot over looking lake(even on a snowy day) cozy and inviting. Had salad with salmon for lunch and decided to go back for dinner. Not a massive menu like chains give you but a varied and delicious selection of the familiar and slightly exotic. Reasonable prices at first glance and even more so once meal arrived...Loved it!

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 Chinese-food restaurant on Dunlop Street and taking them to the nearby waterfront – down by... More

We recently had lunch. Our server (Kim) was outstanding. She was friendly and professional. The food was incredible and not like the Brand Name restaurants but rather a quaint setting with fresh, creative, and appetizing food. Bill S.

Was at Shirley's last Tuesday night, and I must say this place is simply consistently excellent. The meal was FABULOUS, beyond expectation, the service was fast friendly and attentive, the portions were outstanding, and you really get exceptional value for your money. No place like this place in Barrie. Peggie B.

Have had many family celebrations at Shirley's (birthdays ,anniversaries) and they have never let us down. Food is always top notch and friendly service.

We visited town and went based upon the recommendation of friends of friends. The place could use a bit of an update inside wise and a menu refresh. Seems like it may be geared for the older crowd. Chicken was dry in my opinion. I did see some other dishes that looked good.

We've been to Shirley's many times in the past and it has been consistently good. This time we were lucky to have great live entertainment, which happens every Friday. For Barrielicious they have the same menu as other years, which is a good value and the service is always friendly and efficient.

Always love the food at Shirley's! The challenge is now that we've had to go gluten free and there's almost nothing on the menu that is gluten free, other than a salad. Would love to have Shirley's change up her menu a bit to accommodate those with food issues. Using corn starch instead of flour can be an easy fix... More
