Friday night was really hopping at the fish fry shacks. We enjoyed dinner at Shirleys and had the grilled fish (snapper). It was good but a bit over cooked. The grouper sandwich was excellent and I would go with this choice.

Stopped in for lunch based on reviews -- and grabbed a porch table (screened in). What a relaxing meal -- great food, good service, nice view -- and DELICIOUS drinks. Will eat here again on our next visit to Great Exuma.

This family owned restaurant was great food. We ate out on the patio with a lovely breeze. The grouper and shrimp were delicious.

A must visit on the island. Convenient with a view and wonderful cuisine. The Crack Conch is my favorite.

Amazing Local restaurant, local delicious food, if you want to take traditional bahamian food, this is the place to go , plus the fish was to die for, just unbelieveable.

We ate at Shirley's our first night in town and wish we would have went back more often. Since it was our first time to the Exumas, we wanted to try all the local restaurants but looking back I can honestly say Shirley's was the...best. Our group had the snapper, grouper, conch burger, and cracked conch and all were delicious! Fish Fry on Friday night is also a must!More

We are here at least once every time we visit Exuma. The food is reliably delicious, and the service always friendly and prompt. I’ve never tasted a curry conch that’s as good as theirs.

What happens when you show up without reservations with 16 people? Shirley's only needed a few minutes to gather a table for us all. Our orders were taken and ALL of the food came out correct and was so good! No one in our party...was disappointed, everything came out at the same time. Super impressed!More

Shirleys was recommended by a guest at our hotel. She told us it was fantastic and she was absolutely right. We had Curried Conch and a Conch burger. They were excellent and I dreamed about having a Conch Burger for the next two days. Absolutely...loved it. The second time we went Shirley was at the bar and gave us a big greeting. We sat at the bar and had another Conch Burger and a Conch Pizza - again fantastic. The third time we went (because we think it is the best place in George Town), I had the Garlic Flounder and my husband had the Seafood Pasta - again delicious. Out of five nights in Exumas we ate at Shirleys three time - a testament to how good Shirleys is. LaMont (Shirley's son) even helped us to jump our car when the battery died in the parking lot. Love this place!More
