The escargot was fantastic! It's served in a puff pastry and quite delicious.... Very HOT though so lift the pastry lid to let it cool before you indulge. I had the pickerel served with a house salad and poached pears on top. It was quite lovely, although there were little bones in the fish but the waitress DID warn me... More

This was our first time here. I had read great reviews and wanted to try something different for a change. We both ordered steaks and I have to say that mine could have been better (strip loin), a little underdone and it certainly wasn't as tender as I was lead to believe. My partners ribeye was better though. The caesar... More

We showed up at Shirley's expecting a burger 'grill'. I was pleasantly surprised by the menu and atmosphere. We sat outside, which has a different menu than inside (though our waitress was kind enough to offer me the indoor menu as we were first-timers). The wine special was too good to pass up. The margherita flatbread was nice. The steak... More

However, i did not leave impressed. The patio/bar menu had a special on for $6 appetizers. Everything looked good, excpet for the fact that every single... More

Always enjoy a delicious meal at this favourite spot. Never can decide if I want an appetizer or hold out for something decadent after a tasty meal.

We went in a large group (7 adults, 5 kids) and had a wonderful meal. Wine selection and martinis were excellent and so was our food. The pickerel was incredible as was the steak .. everyone else's meals looked scrumptious as well. I always have their caesar salad ... so flavourful! Lovely location, attentive service and great food!

Pleasant ambience, excellent food and service. I particularly enjoyed the escargots. I have one complaint.They have a summer special: a $25.00 fixed price menu. We weren't aware of it and were not offered a menu. After we ordered we found out about it from the couple at the next table. We asked our server about it and were told that... More

This is a lovely spot near Downtown Barrie and the waterfront. A consistently good restaurant with good food and nice atmosphere. Live music on the weekends. A nice place for a date, family get together or just hang out at the bar for a drink with friends. Would definitely recommend Shirley's.
