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.

This restaurant was formerly owned and remodeled to it's current state by Bruce Willis. The food is really good under the current ownership, as well. Check it out!

Very clean! Old fashioned looking diner, nice decor, with excellent service. Our waitress was friendly and efficient, coffee brought quickly---she is five stars! Breakfast is the four stars---biscuits and gravy should be excellent in a diner--a staple. Here, its average.

Had breakfast at Shorty's. It was just OK, nothing more. I expected better. Prices are relatively high. I will try another place next time.

The food is very traditional, burgers, fries, Patty melts, etc. The food is good and you get plenty. It is just a very fun place to eat. Usually very busy at lunch, but the... More

Tired of the same old breakfast at our hotel tried this place instead. Great food, service was a little slow, but worth the wait.

We stayed in Ketchum in the Knob Hill Inn. instead of eating breakfast in the hotel - too many people - we decided to head out down the road to Hailey and Shorty's. Very glad we did. Mostly locals in a very uncrowded diner. Food was good and they had espresso drinks. Very nice server.

The food is very good. Diner style environment serving breakfast and lunch. Fast service and friendly staff. The food quality is very consistent. The owner is almost always there and hands on.

Although Shorty's is only open for breakfast and lunch it is totally worth it to get up early and work it into your schedule! The decor is so fun and breakfast is absolutely terrific! Especially the hand made chicken friend steak, yummy!
