“Great seafood”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Don't be put off by the decor, the food is great. Fish is cooked perfectly. We went twice, but try and avoid a Friday night as the place is small and getting a table can be a problem. All food is prepared while you wait, so if you understand that it takes time to make your own supper, sit back, have a couple of beers and enjoy your companions. You are on vacation, remember?

“Absolutely Delicious Authentic Cuisine”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

I had the lobster curry with mac & cheese, coleslaw, peas & rice. The rice was very aromatic with coconut essence. The curry was top notch.

“Freshest seafood on the island”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

With an extensive chalkboard menu plus custom orders,in our opinion, Shirley's beats most restaurants here hands down. You can get fresh grouper steamed in a curry sauce with vegetables, the peas and rice are not the usual dry and sparse version but moist and full of flavor. Macaroni to die for and did I mention the cracked conch. My husband and I have tried most of the island restaurants here and this is our "go to " choice.

“This chef knows her spices”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

The crab cakes are served with an amazing mango salsa. I was served the spicy pork chops. Yum! It was served with sides of beans and rice, slaw, and macaroni and cheese. We took half of it to go and it was amazing for lunch the next day.

Halfway through dinner, the electricity went out and Shirley and her family were speedily replacing the lighting with LED lanterns. The bank of the ocean outside is layered with conch shells, so we took a couple of the beauties.

The service was fast and delightful. The food was delicious. My friends had conch fritters and curry conch. Wow!
