We drive over to this little strip shopping center restaurant occassionally. It's a simple, basic restaurant but their seafood is as good , if not better than those resturants charging 2-3 times as much. I also like seeing the same wait staff, indicator the owner treats them well.

I used to have breakfast here on occasion, but as soon as they started serving frozen potatoes, I have not returned. I enjoy fresh ingredients.

We visit Shirley's most every trip to their area. Been going there for over 30 years. Food is always great, service is excellent and prices fair. I don't, however like the policy of charging 50 cents for ice water, but it is still my choice to dine there. The owner is a great guy and his "Belly Buster" burger is second to none. Not a fancy place, but well worth the trip. They now serve a great breakfast on Saturday and Sunday.

The owner micromanages the place. He watches through the videos of his employees all of the time as if they have been stealing from him. But all of his wait staff has been there forever and he does not trust anyone. The food is pretty good and they run specials quite often.
