Not a greasy spoon, but neither a delicatessen!

Used Shorties three times over a week. Always well used by contractors and locals alike. Food was well up to standard, be it a Burger or a Mixed Grill. Staff were very helpful and courteous, although small errors were made on orders due to the influx of customers, but rectified without question... read more

Good variety of food and good value. Service is quick. It is popular with locals - a good advertisement.

The welcome and service from the staff at Shorty's is exceptional. The food is good and hearty in very large portions. (You can ask for a half portion). The Cheesecake is to die for but a little expensive

A great place to take the kids - some toys available for them to use. The food is diner style but good sized portions freshly made. The desserts are very tempting. I had lemon meringue pie - yummy.

This is a popular place with the locals, for good reason: plenty of parking, big tables for parties, good solid food (I had sausage, chips, and beans, all prepared well), and ice cream. It's a bit of a hike up the hill from downtown Stanley, but good value and worth the walk.

We ate dinner here the two nights we were staying in Stanley (on arrival and departure). There was lots of choice and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was freshly cooked and tasty - much more reasonably priced than the hotel and busy with locals. We also ordered some sandwiches to takeaway for later.

Ok - so if you like seaside cafes in English beach towns you'll like this. Burgers and cheesy chips. They had run out of veggie burgers so we had a tasteless salad like the ones I got at school in the 1950s. The "healthy" option is a baked potato and baked beans. A real retro blast from the past -... More
