Ate their last week. Ordered the stuffed meatballs, cold and rubbery. The cheese inside was ice cold and the meatballs tasted like they were a month old. Will not order those again. Had a rueben and that was all fat. Had to return that and...More

We didn't find a lot going on in Superior in terms of dining choices. This place publicizes that they were featured on the diners and dives tv show. It is a huge cavernous dive with little decor other than old booths and buffet chairs &...More

A friend suggested the pizza here, but I just didn't like it. I did like the restaurant...comfortable booths, family-friendly atmosphere (but an attached barroom, too:-), and lots of choices on the menu. I will definitely return, but not for the pizza. (I'll stick with the...More

Visited Shorty's for the first time. I ordered the Chicken Fetticine Alfredo and it was delicious! One of the best dishes ever! My husband had bangers and clam chowder soup and was very pleased. Service was good. Will definately be back.

Nice atmosphere and good conversation with bar staff ... Extremely friendly and patient. But, I chose their signature sandwich because it was recommended. Not my cup of tea. Meat was all chopped up, sweet, and temperature was not hot. The price was phenomenal, and I...More

We do not like the "Canadian" style meat since it is fatty, greasy and way too much on a sandwich. We try to eat here once a year and bring people we think that might like this place (meat eaters) and they always have a...More
