The server was excellent. Very pleasant. Portions are generous. Had the Special Eggplant on a bed of angel hair pasta. It was EXCELLENT! Their sauce should be bottled. My husband had the steak and peppers. Again, the marinara sauce it accompanied was so good he asked for more. They need to improve on the garlic bread which came with the... More

Excellent service, quaint, romantic atmosphere, fine food. The polish plate is the finest I've ever eaten. The Italian fare is delicious. Specials board at the entrance. If I were to require a caterer I'd call Shorty's!

We are frequent customers and have never had a bad meal. The food is great and price very reasonable. All the food seems to be hand made and not out of a package. Their soup is the best in the area. The apps are great and they have some nice original choices. The wraps and burgers are great and served... More

4 people visit. Eggplant dish was good. Meatball dish not as good. Burger was ordered medium and came out pretty raw. Waitress offered to have another one cooked but I was disgusted. We were charged full price with no reductions. Waitress too busy to pick up bill or to say thank you. Won't be going back.

The eggplant special was delicious. The eggplant was thinly sliced with just the right amount of cheese. Sauce was good too. Hubby had sweet italian sausage sandwich, it was to die for. Don't be put off by the fact it is tucked in a residential area.

My wife and I decided to stop in Shorty's for an early dinner. She ordered Eggplant Parmesan and I had a Reuben on Rye. I For a light meal it was delicious. Food was served in a reasonable time and the waitress was very professional. We have eaten here before and I would suggest to go early 4/5pm if you... More
