Good atmosphere, great food. Food was fresh, hot and delicious. Salmon burger was top notch. Burgers were large and juicy. Kids chicken fingers homemade. Staff were friendly. We'll be back!

Shortie's is a great local place for dinner. The dishes our group had included saganaki, souvlaki, fish tacos, meatball soup and Caesar wrap. Everything tasted very good! The bar is decorated with a very impressive collection of vintage posters.

Fantastic burger, fantastic fries, and fantastic fish tacos were enjoyed. The atmosphere was reminiscent of an earlier time with movie posters from past Hollywood icons (e.g. Marilyn Monroe). The waitress we had was friendly and attentive.
