GREAT home-cooked soul food in Millard. I took my kids here today to celebrate a birthday... portions are generous and tasty! But wait for dessert!! The sundaes are ENORMOUS and you have to try the deep fried Oreos or Twinkies... my kids were in HEAVEN....This Millard staple is worth every penny. ❤️More

Ask to be seated in Jon's section, he is attentive and delightful. I have to drink decaf coffee, and the decaf at Shirley's is delicious, best I've had in town! Try the chicken fried steak with real mashed potatoes! Breakfast is available all day and...I love the Eggs Benedict. Their hollandaise sauce is Rich and creamy. Can't beat the price for the super quality food!More

Except for the prices, you could be reading a menu out of the 50's! Food is generous portions and excellent quality. Good place to take the whole family, children would fit right in. No pretention and signature dishes, just wholesome diner food.

Holy cow! Awesome food!!! I absolutely loved their breakfast and wish we were there long enough to go back! Someday!! Everything was fresh made, and I’m not kidding, best hash browns I’ve ever had!

We celebrated a family birthday brunch. We all ordered breakfast items. ALL of our orders were HUGE & DELISH! Even though Christmas eve our wait was short. Our wait staff was prompt, efficient and helpful. Making suggestions for a better experience. My omlet with hashbrowns...and pancakes was yummy. Several of us took some home. 1st time, but we will return!More

Go expecting good food in large portions! Many delicious home quality meals. All is good and makes you feel like your mama made it (if mama can cook!).

Visited Shirley's on a Sunday mid-morning after hearing many good things about it. There were people waiting when we arrived, but we were told there would only be a 10 minute wait. Well, 10 minutes turned into 30 and we were growing restless. We did...get seated and things started to turn positive. We all ordered breakfast items and were not disappointed in our selections. Eggs were cooked perfectly. Hash brown were crisp. Biscuits were large and the gravy plentiful. The real surprise for me was the coffee was not the standard food service blech - it was very good! Dave Webber was even visiting tables and handing out donut samples. Our waitress was an absolute jewel. She was attentive on drinks and brought out our food in a very quick manner. If we didn't have the long wait after the assurance of the 10 minute wait, this would have been a 5. I will give Shirley's a try as a dinner option sometime when I'm back in Omaha.More

this used to be a great place to eat, but now it's hit and miss. My wife and I went in for brunch and I tried their chicken and waffles. The chicken was so rubbery I swear it would have bounced if I dropped it...on the floor. Disgusting. At least the waffle was edible. Needless to say, I moved the chicken off of my plate and just ate the waffle. Disappointing.More

The food is abundant and good. The service is always attentive. Come with an appetite and be prepared to leave full.
