It's taken me a while to write this because of mixed feelings. Miss Shirley's is a special place where the lines to get in were long and the wait interminable. Then they expanded and the wait wasn't do bad. The food was always high quality and innovative. So I looked forward to a visit after a not eating there in... More

A real miss! Poor service prevented us from trying the food. My husband and I arrived at 10:30 am after he was discharged from the hospital. It was between the breakfast and lunch crowds and there were several available tables. We said we could not sit at a tall top and we were offered a tiny table spilling over into... More

went to the original Miss Shirley's here in Roland Park on my first day in Baltimore and it was a great start to my weeklong trip. Only a few minutes after their 7:30 a.m. opening on a Sunday and the restaurant was already filling up as I arrived. That was a promising sign. If I had waited until 9, I... More

Really enjoyed the food. Started with the Spicy Shirley which was very enjoyable. I ordered the Eastern Shore Skinny which was excellent! My son had the Maryland Omelet which he enjoyed as well. Service was very good.

I got the triple play at lunch (soup, salad, and 1/2 sandwich) for only $2 more than the double play. Thanks so much to my waitress for this recommendation. I then had lunch for the next day when I didn't have time to leave the hotel.

Between the atmosphere (friendly, typical Baltimore!) and the delish food and the amazing mimosas and (check out the garnishes!) on the Bloody Marys, this place is all that and a bag of chips! My favorite local place for brunch!

This is a must visit restaurant. Excellent Southern food. Great fried chicken and waffles; also followed our waiter, Josh's recommendation for the Low Country Oyster eggs benedict. Best fried oysters I have ever had. Can't wait to go back for his other recommendation - shrimp and grits. So many good looking dishes on the menu, will take many visits to... More

On a trip to Baltimore, my husband and our 11 year old daughter stopped in at Miss Shirley's for Brunch, the service was superb, provided by Ron, and the food was very delicious!! I am a food blogger, needless to say picky with food and we had a picky kid with us, everyone was happy! I don't usually like grits,... More

I have been here a few times for breakfast and it was always incredibly good. However, this was the first time I've been here for lunch. I ordered a cod filet sandwich. It was possibly the best sandwich I've had (not just the best fish sandwich - the best sandwich). My wife ordered fried green tomatoes with the crab. She... More

We stopped here for brunch on a Saturday around 11. It only took about 15 minutes to be seated and we had drinks while we waited. We were in a bit of a hurry so we placed our order as soon as we were seated. It was busy so we were a little concerned we might not make it to... More
