This restaurant is one of my favorites in Barrie. It can be very noisy and difficult to hear conversation, the ceilings are high. On the weekend they have live music which only adds to the noise level. I'm not bothered by this as I like...More

We have enjoyed dinner at Shirley's a couple of times since we relocated to Barrie. My wife recently took me out for my birthday dinner and the meal was just excellent. The service has always been exceptional.

Our 2nd visit to Shirley's with the same great food. It was very busy on New Year's Eve and although the restaurant was packed and understandably slow the food was beautifully presented and served hot by a most pleasant and delightful waitress. It was delicious....More

Took a date to Shirley's in the summer as I heard it was good. WRONG!! Microwaved stale bread, empty water glasses and a way way over cooked steak and a stressed out rude server. To top it off this place is an echo chamber and...More

This is a favourite place for my husband and me, and for birthday lunches with friends. The many interesting food choices make it difficult to choose; the entrees, salads, wine selection, martinis, desserts are all good. Prices are very reasonable and the staff are helpful...More

I am planning a small event that will take place in early May. Since a number of the attendees will be elderly and may have mobility issues, I am wondering what the parking situation is at Shirley's... Is it possible to park close to the entrance? Thank you in advance!

There is only street meter parking. If the restaurant is busy. it will be near impossible for many guests to park close to the entrance.
