Wife and I both had the whole fried flounder. Really, really good. Sides of cole slaw, french fries, hush puppies average. I don't recommend the rice with gravy...salt bomb! Back to the flounder. Exactly what it says....Whole Fried Flounder.

Shirley's is a mainstay here in Leland. It started out as a great place to get an ice cream, but soon turned into one of the best food places here. It is small, but it is worth it.
