We had lunch on the last Saturday of September. Service excellent and food delicious and huge portions. I had the lobster sandwich which was excellent. We also had lobster mac and cheese, steak sandwich and veggie pizza. Great view and ambience.

I have had lunch at Shirley's many times as it's just a block away from where I used to work prior to retiring. The food is sensational and so is the service. Nice locale for a view of the lake as well.
