#FoodieFriday Feature | Where to Dine in #Baltimore Inner Harbor PART II @MissShirleys #ShirleysLove

When seeking a family friendly brunch while in Baltimore, make sure to place Miss Shirley’s Cafe at the top of your list. I was visiting family and friends during Thanksgiving and wanted to enjoy non-traditional Thanksgiving food during Brunch where I could indulge in some regional cuisine featuring my fave: SEAFOOD!

Miss Shirley’s Cafe | SobeSavvy.com shares #ShirleysLove for Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch

During our stay in Baltimore, we dined at two restaurants that not only feature delicious food, but served as the perfect family friendly places to fuel up for holiday shopping. Phillips Seafood (which you can read PART I of my #FoodieFriday here) and Miss Shirley’s Cafe are both Maryland favorites that should be on your Where to Dine in Baltimore list. Here’s what my experience was like at Miss Shirley’s: 

Upon arriving at Miss Shirley’s Inner Harbor location at 750 E.Pratt St. you will see that this place is popular for breakfast, brunch and lunch. The original location in Roland Park was started in 2005 so Miss Shirley’s simply spread their perfection here {and an Annapolis location}.

After being warmly greeted, we were seated at a booth where the hostess handed an old school etch-a-sketch to my 6 yr old. What an awesome throwback for the kiddos to occupy themselves with while waiting for their food! I absolutely loved their kids menu. My little one ordered the silver dollar pancakes and they come served in a cute bento box! We adults occupied ourselves with Mornin’ Cocktails. I recommend the Miss Mimosa & Southern Ruby Crush.

My Mom started with the “Loaded Southern Fried Deviled Eggs” which she LOVED! I ordered their soup of the day, which was a gumbo that was packed with shrimp, sausage and plenty of flavor.

For entrees we feasted our eyes on the Miss Shirley’s House Favorites like “Get your Grits On” which is their take on Shrimp {Or Salmon} and Grits. It features Blackened Shrimp on top of Grits + Fried Green Tomato and tastes as awesome as it sounds and looks! 

Hubby opted for the “Crab Cake & Fried Green Tomato Eggs Benedict.” Jumbo lump crabmeat with poached eggs & Old Bay hollandaise sauce. He said it tasted EXACTLY like he imagined actually … BETTER!

The “Crab Happy Chesapeake Chicken Sammy” was what my Mom ordered. Here is what’s on it per the menu ..

She thought it was AMAZING and even though it had alot going on, it all surprisingly went well together. This dish definitely fit the Miss Shirley’s motto: Southern Inspired with a Maryland Twist!

Service was very good as well as the entire meal. It was a great way to bond with my family over good food in a locally owned, upscale-casual, yet kid-friendly restaurant.

#FoodieFriday Spotlight on @MissShirleys | Where to Eat for Breakfast,Brunch, Lunch #Baltimore

One of the many reasons Baltimore is unique is it’s geography. Not a southern city and not a wholly northern city either. Both influence Baltimore’s culture and cuisine. To sample this split personality is to visit Miss Shirley’s Cafe. With 3 locations in the region, the locally owned Miss Shirley’s is the go to place to sample all that Baltimore cuisine has to offer. From regional classics like crab cakes to southern mainstays like fried green tomatoes, Miss Shirley’s does it all on a high casual level. Dress up or down. All are welcome here.

Miss Shirley’s has been featured on Food Networks hit show, Diners, Drive In’s and Dives, making it very popular with locals and visitors alike. Open for breakfast, brunch and lunch, the downtown Inner Harbor location was packed. They don’t take reservations, but this restaurant is well worth the wait for its delicious food, exceptional service and warm atmosphere. We chose to done at this location for lunch as it was convenient to our hotel, Hyatt Place and close to Port Discovery Children’s Museum (Read all about this attraction and more family fun places to visit in Baltimore >>here.)

THE DRINKS

I ordered a “Miss Mimosa” from their House-Made Mornin’ Cocktails list. They use freshly squeezed orange juice and mix it with champagne and garnish it with an orange and strawberry slice. It was so refreshing! Since we were in the Charm City, my husband opted for a DuckPin Pale Ale, a craft beer made in Baltimore!

THE FOOD

I’ll start with saying the menu has something for everyone and if you were wondering if this restaurant is kid-friendly it is! In fact, it was voted America’s Favorite Family Restaurant and Favorite Kids Menu.

My daughter ordered the Silver Dollar Pancakes, which were beautifully presented in a bento box ! She really enjoyed the fresh fruit and option to have brocolli with her pancakes. 

After seeing all the #ShirleysLove on Social Media channels like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest @MissShirleys, I could not wait to try some of their signature dishes. Take a look at what we tried: 

Shirley’s Affair with Oscar is indeed a love affair on a plate. A twist on a Surf and Turf dish. If you are a meat lover and enjoy seafood, this combo will not disappoint.

My hubby devoured his Bay-O PO’ BOY with Softshell crab. His thoughts were Yum.Yum.Yum. I did not get to taste but I did get a quick photo at least! It’s served with hash browns and was a nice portion.

We took the opportunity to cast our vote for Miss Shirley’s after thoroughly enjoy our lunch!
