The Fish Fry shacks are the heart of the island and Shirley's is the crown jewel of them all. Do yourself a favor, be sure to visit the Fish Fry Shacks early in your trip. You will LOVE them so much, you will undoubtedly be back several times. By going early, you ensure yourself several opportunities to enjoy the local... More

There aren't too many places open that late in the Fish Fry area and overall in the island so that makes this place even more precious! Great food, great drinks and really nice people working at this place. We have visited two times, it's walking distance to some places in the Augasta Bay etc. but definitely a drive from north...

We ate lunch here after a visit to Hooper's Bay. A fish fingers meal and a burger, both excellent. Friendly service and a fair price.

We visited Shirley's for an evening meal and a lunch. It was busy in the evening and we had the last table inside. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food was good and no long wait even though busy. When we went for lunch we sat out the back with nice views across the bay.

Everything here was incredible. We got multiple recommendations to go here and they did not disappoint. I would say everyone should stop by here and get some grub if you're in Exuma!

Come as you are. Diner Exuma style. Cozy, clean, friendly staff. A little restaurant by the water. The conch fritters are excellent and the rum punch too.

This place is about as big as a postage stamp, so plan to be there earlier than later if you don't want to wait for a table. The service was outstanding and the food was absolutely delicious. I am gluten-free and ordered without a problem. The server was knowledgeable. True local eating!

Shirley's was one of the only restos open at Fish Fry in the late afternoon when we were looking for a bite. We ordered takeout but the restaurant seemed very clean and quaint inside. wish we could have come back one night for the atmosphere. The whole snapper was unfortunately a bit dry but the conch strips were awesome. Service... More

Wow. Never would have picked this place by appearance, but that is true of most places on Great Exuma. Food was very good all around. Conch fritters, stir fry shrimp, and blackened grouper were all excellent. Be aware that blackened fish here does have a light batter, but that is consistent throughout the Bahamas from what we've seen. Different than... More
