“Excellent...A Breakfast Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I researched restaurant's before departing to Baltimore Inner Harbor this past weekend. Chicken and Waffles caught my eye immediately. I have been wanted to try them and found the perfect place. The wait was an hour but well worth it. Miss Shirley's has a takeout beverage bar so I ordered a "Shirley's Crush" which was so refreshing and delicious and they did not skimp on the alcohol....perfectly priced at $7.99... I had enough time to review the extensive menu before sitting down so I knew exactly what to order. Me and my daughter split an order of Chicken and Waffles, Funky Monkey Bread (smothered in chocolate, chocolate chips and cinnamon & was enough to feed 4-6 pp as a starter so we took the rest home) and Sweet Potato Fries (served with mango ketchup)...We satisfied our sweet & salty craving as well as our crunch factor....everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. I cannot complain about one thing. Our server was polite and attentive and the service was fast. Will definitely return to this Baltimore Gem.

“Good, but not worth the wait I saw...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

This place was very good. We had the mini waffles, a side order of bacon and a vegetable omelette. The coffee was good and of high quality. Prices were considerably high for breakfast food. We only ordered our two dishes, one coffee and one orange juice and we paid well over forty dollars before tip. We were able to get seated rather quickly because we opted for an outside table. We also arrived around 9 a.m. By the time we left (around 10:15) there were lines of people waiting outside. I highly doubt we would have waited that long for the food we got. While there aren't many diners in the area, there was nothing spectacular that would warrant the wait.

“Baltimore Gen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

It's a shame this Miss Shirley's is only open until 3 pm, because it's good food! We went here for a late lunch after my sister's graduation. Keep in mind, no reservations are taken and your entire party has to be present to be seated. It's on the smaller side, but don't let that deter you.

We ordered the funky monkey bread as an appetizer and it was delicious! Chocolate, chocolate chips and cinnamon bread served warm and perfect to split if you have a big party of people. I had the banana split, which is Greek yogurt served with banana and fruits. Perfect if you're wanting something on the 'smaller' side of the menu. Others with us ordered sandwiches and loved them. You definitely get a good amount of food for your buck.

A good place to come for good food!

“Miss Shirley knows her cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

I went for brunch on Sunday. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the menu had a lot of choices.
First the positive: The coffee was served piping hot and the service was solid. The food was very good & the highlight was the biscuit! Miss Shirley must be baking those herself in the kitchen because they were yummy! The bloody Mary was also very good and a popular item.
The negative was the wait time. We had to wait 45 minutes for a table for 2 but that was due to the rain so they had no outside tables. The only other thing was it was a little expensive. Still the food was very good and it's a great place for large or small groups. Hostess was very friendly and efficient.
