Pete and Shorty's offers a nice neighborhood sports bar and grill atmosphere. Great burgers, fish and chips, and great service. This place is usually full, and well worth trying.

Four of us ate there after the LRB concert. It was about 1030 on a Saturday night. Everything was very good, can't wait to go back during the day to try the pork shank!

Never dissatisfied when we visit this Pete & Shorty's location. The burgers are great, as is the buffalo chicken sandwich - my personal favorite. Another great thing is how laidback the atmosphere and the servers are - just a chill place to enjoy a delicious meal. Great for lunch. Never been for dinner before but I will soon, as they... More

Simple little bar. Arrived with our BEvERage cup from the game to receive a free beer. Decent tavern food. Took DD to the restroom and she peaked. Lady at the bar knew it when we came out and gave her a button. Had a great laugh!

Just had lunch, wonderful ham and bean soup. Pork Tenderloin Sandwich was perfect! So tender and flavorful. Would definitely go back. They had a pork shank for two that looked yummy!

Nice setting, cute waitresses, deecent beer. So why the low rating? The fried fish special was awful. Tough, flavorless fried fish accompanied by a mound of limp lukewarm fries. Different dishes on other tables looked like better choices. When our credit card statement arrived, in addition to the meal we had, there was a charge for a meal on the... More

On the plus side, service was excellent, and the beer was cold. There are 2 indoor seating areas, and also outside seating. We sat indoors in the room with the bar. The noise was terrible. Even without a full crowd, it was hard to talk. Don't know if the other seating areas would have been better. Food was all below... More

Ok place - Went there because my Mom was called Shorty and her special friend was called Pete. I expected home cooked food on the menu, It was ok - not much atmosphere , really a bar - and it served typical sandwich/lunch style food. Food was ok, but I expected more choices. I did not expect find dining, but... More
