Would highly recommend stopping here for some casual dining or takeout. Food was delicious and freshly made. The staff were friendly and engaged in conversation with us. We had the seafood grill and seafood pasta. Both were delicious and you get a good amount of...food. The prices were reasonable considering the amount of food you get. There was seating inside and outside overlooking the water.More

Good local food! Coconut pie was amazing! Friendly staff! Not the fanciest place and outside gets a little rowdy at night. Mainly seafood, not many non-seafood options.

A great meal in a friendly atmosphere. We enjoyed a mixed grill with lobster, grouper and shrimp. We substituted coconut shrimp. So good! We loved the made in house sauce so much we bought a bottle to bring home!

This casual, local place serves delicious, local food. OMG, was it soooo good. Our group ordered the red snapper (served whole), lobster and grouper. ALL had incredible flavor. The waitress was friendly and such a pleasure to talk to. I wish we ate here more...than once.More

We loved our experience! Our sweet young server was delightful and we loved our food! The place is in a happening local spot so there was lots of live music surrounding. Such a fun night.

Shirley’s is unassuming on the out and inside but WOW! We had amazing service & delicious food. The bean ragout? Holy yum and I hate beans! All 8 of us got different menu items and loved it all! The topper was all of the music...surrounding us at the other local spots.More

We only had a takeway meal, rather than the full service but the food was just as good. Would highly recommend.

I ate here in May. In August, when I was long back in the states, someone at Shirley's used my card to buy $1,000 of stuff from Amazon over a period of several days. I reported this to my CC company. I doubt they will...get the money back. Please don't patronize this business!More

We ate at Shirley's three times over the course of a week - the food was just too good! The place gets very busy at dinnertime as it's super popular with locals and tourists alke. I have severe food allergies and everyone was incredibly helpful...in finding me suitable dishes and made me feel at ease. My two friends, lucky them, could sample pretty much everything on the menu. We just cannot fault the food. Special mention to the plaintains. But it's not just about the food, the service here is absolutely outstanding, even on a friendly island like Exuma. Every single server was not just courteous and friendly, but genuinely treated us as friends. If you are in Exuma, you simply MUST go!More

The drinks were ok, but nothing special. Each person in our group was disappointed in the food. The garlic sauce was heavy and overpowering for the fish. Much better food on the island.

Best thing we ate in Exuma all week. Bought dessert from some girl walking around selling dessert, pineapple pie or something and it wasn’t great. Service was great!

2 of us had take out here early during our stay on Great Exuma, and then our adult kids joined us for a meal later in our trip. Very good as always. Our 1st visit was near closing time, so we could only get take...out.. We were still happy with the food we received. We tried the garlic grouper, the grouper fingers, the wings and the cracked chicken. The cracked chicken in particular was a hit but it was all yummy. On our 2nd trip we had the conch fritters, the coconut shrimp, the grilled lobster entree (x2), the seafood platter (x2) and the guava pie/coconut pie for dessert. Everything was again very tasty.  I could not recall if the lobsters were smallish-medium on previous trips but they were still very well prepared on this trip. The Sky juice was popular with those in our group who never had it before. The sweet chili sauce went well with our appetizers.More

My answer is above. A Bahamian “Snack” means entre and fries. (Entre above was auto-corrected to read “enter”. Sorry. Devices are too “smart”.
