Stopped in for a late breakfast. Things started out a bit slow but picked up. The waitress seemed a bit out of it and I couldn't get her attention. The bus person noticed, smiled, and shrugged. I asked her for a glass of water ands...More

Our experience was just okay. I have ate here a couple of times while passing through and it was always better, so it was a coincidence. Their food is great, classic diner food for sure! Large portions, hot and delicious! I would definitely go back...More

Classic small town feel in a clean neon influenced setting. Located in downtown Hailey Shorty’s is one of the best spots for two eggs over-easy and a short-stack of pancakes. Make sure to tip your waitstaff for service karma.

We've eaten here several times with our grandsons, for both breakfast and lunch. 50's diner feel; car parts on the walls, juke boxes at the tables. Not a gourmet place, but very good, plentiful American food,

Shorty 's is a mainstay in Hailey with plenty of history and that traditional diner feel. Actual jukeboxes are at your table and the food is good. Great service and great location.

Service was great, good coffee. Food was slow to come and a bit cold once it was served. The exceptional service is what this restaurant offers and plenty of good coffee.
