    Between the amazing service and the incredible food, this is easily the best meal we've had in the week we've been in the Baltimore/DC corridor. Wishing we had time to come back again before we left. Our server Troy took fantastic care of us, and made sure we were safe.

    I ate there several times during my week in Baltimore. The staff are very conscientious of all food allergies and ask as soon as they wait on you. The food was delicious.

    We were asked if contamination was a problem for us right when we sat so they could take careful care for us. Food delicious and menu terrific. Would def go back with my celiac daughter.

    Huge portions. Extremely cautious. Our waitress, Jessica was very adamant about my celiac. She checked with the manager and chefs several times just to ensure my well-being. The crab soup is amazing...simply the best I've ever had in MD.

    My review echoes what everyone else is saying- Miss Shirley's takes Celiac and food allergies seriously. Their staff is incredibly educated and takes the greatest precautions with food. The first question the waitstaff ask is whether anyone has food allergies. Be still my heart! I had a sandwich that was pretty good. I'll definitely go back for the pancakes one of these days.

    My daughter and I went to the one in Baltimore. She ordered the Cinnamon Danish pancakes and said they were dry and did not feel well after. I had an omelette, grits, and toast. The toast was rock solid, the grits reminded me of wallpaper glue, and I ordered parmesan cheese in the omelette and got a few other cheeses in there that i did not order as well as hair IN the omelette. The only reason it has a star is because of the service.

    We have a child with Celiac and the staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They even start the dining experience by asking "are there any allergies we need to know about?". I heard them ask that question to every other table within earshot of ours. Will definitely come back when in Orlando again!

    Wonderful experience. First question was "Does anyone have any allergies I should be aware of?" My son ordered the GF pancakes, an omelet with fresh fruit and GF toast. He was so happy. He tried to eat everything but got full. He can't wait to go again.

    Service was slow but it's closing time so I'm sure they wanted us out of here. I ordered gluten free pancakes but they were so dry & tasteless. I put 3 containers of syrup and still couldn't eat them. With all the great reviews I read prior to coming here I am very disappointed.

    All I can say is wow! As soon as we sat down, the server asked if we had any allergies. I told her I had Celiac and she told me what was gluten free and assured me that my food would be made separately. I had the cinnamon danish pancakes with turkey sausage and everything was delicious. The portion of pancakes was incredibly large too! I will definitely be coming back here more often, it's not too crowded on weekday mornings.

    Very knowledgeable staff! First thing we were asked was if any of us had any food allergies. Then the manager came out to tell me that since hash browns are cooked in the same area as others, grits would be a great 100% GF alternative if I were highly sensitive. Grits were delish!!! Next time I go, I will have to try their pancakes. But what a treat to be able to have GF breakfast out!

    Lured in by the promise of pancakes that were both gluten and dairy free. The pancakes were amazing and did not disappoint in the least. The portion is pretty huge so come hungry and the staff are attentive and knowledgeable about individual needs.

    Very knowledge staff. We notified our waiter we eat gluten free because I have Celiacs. He acknowledged and initiated conversation about gf options and sent the manager over. The manager went over their protocol to prepare gf food stating they have a separate area and use separate utensils. The manager also stated the entire kitchen staff is alerted to an allergy order to increase awareness and avoid cross contamination. The food was DELICIOUS!! And came out with a beautiful presentation. I can't wait to go back. It's the first place I've enjoyed breakfast since my diagnosis.

    This place was awesome!! I had the cinnamon roll GF pancakes. They were delicious. They don't have a GF menu but the manager came out to discuss my needs and suggested which items on the menu are GF (mainly pancakes and sandwiches). They prepare everything in a dedicated GF area. I would go back again. They serve breakfast and lunch only.

    Number one I loved the customer service of Miss Shirley's-- they bring a manager to talk to you if you mention you have allergies and when I called first before coming they were very accommodating and reassuring that I would have many options to eat. I got the GF pancakes which are also DAIRY FREE. So excited about that. Delicious, I got them with blueberries. They also have Gf bread for sandwiches they said. Love that I can go out to eat with my non-gfdf friends and still eat happily and safely. It is a little expensive but it's worth it for a treat.

    I loved the gluten free options. I never get to eat breakfast out and this was such a treat. Danish pancakes! Full of Cinnamon and sugar. I asked for cream cheese icing on the side--just like eating a cinnamon roll. Delicious! Told waiter I was gf and he asked it was a preference or an allergy. Great way of putting it-- Owner came and explained what was gf. Will go back when in the area.

    SUCH a good gluten free experience! Let the waiter know that both my mom and I had celiac and he shared that he understood the cross-contamination since his Aunt had it as well. Was happy to go back into the freezer and double check any ingredients and even offered to bring box out for us to check ourselves. Gluten-free pancakes were amazing and cooked on completely separate griddle, as were hash browns. SO many gluten-free options and drinks! Manager also came over to assure that our "allergy" was being taken care of! Would go back in a heart beat.
