Family-style is serious business at Shirley's and it starts in the kitchen where we prepare and deliver a choice of two meats and a variety of vegetables.

All the menu items are made from scratch and included in your "family-style" meal is a wide variety of homemade desserts.

You may choose between boneless fried chicken, country ham, roast beef, meat loaf and chicken livers. Friday nights include country-fried steak and gravy. Our vegetables are seasonal and may vary from time to time.

Shirley's Home Cooking is located near beautiful Watauga Lake on Highway 321 near Butler, Tennessee.

Owned and operated by Grant and Shirley Sharpe, Shirley's started with a small grill in the corner of a service station. Shirley served mainly local diners homemade family-style meals which she learned to prepare first-hand by her mother. All the menu items are made from scratch and when we say "family-style, it's just like Grandma's" and all you care to eat!
