Great bartender keeps you hydrated while you wait for a great variety of Island style food. Great curry dishes along with eclectic food choices. Great service, accommodating and not pricey!

Shirley's is in the town dock area of Exuma, known mostly for local bars/restaurants and fish-frys. Shirley's reminds me of that well-known saying by the famous Yogi Berra - "Nobody goes there...it's too popular." Right now, because it offers a great atmosphere, good food and...More
