Shirlene's is an "institution" here in Midland. I had both a great aunt & a sister that worked there. The crab leg buffet is fantastic! The atmosphere is always friendly & upbeat. The service is second to none.

Stopped here for dinner. They have all you can eat meat loaf on select nights. We had the spinach salad with chicken. The service was great. The waitress was new in town from North Carolina. Nice little locally owned restaurant.

Sadly, we couldn't eat here as they closed at 2 pm on Oct 31st. Must have kids at home. Had to go elsewhere for dinner. Is very close to Baymont Inn and Sleep Inn.

Lots to choose from on the menu but everything is average. Lots to eat at salad, that seems to draw the most regulars. Enjoy breakfast the best meal. Service is very good.

The salad bar was well-stocked with fresh food. I was looking forward to eating fresh Michigan walleye and so was my wife. The fish was tasteless and a total disappointment.
