Great for Breakfast

Shorty's is on the main drag in Hailey, so it is easy to find. It was built to look like an old diner and it succeeds. The juke boxes in the booth are filled with oldies from the 60's and early 70's.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way around Idaho. We like to visit local "mom and pop" type places instead of chain restaurants. Shorty's is a bright 60s vibe diner. It was pretty busy when we were there but we were seated and served promptly. Our breakfast was good not great, and I had to ask twice for coffee... More

Hamburgers need improvement. Meat was good but needed to have a crust cooked on it, buns needed to be toasted, fries were frozen. The tomatoes, lettuce, onions, and pickles were fresh and cold. Nice atmosphere. With a few tweaks, this place could be very good.

Another place (like the Hailey Coffee Co.) we always make time whenever we are re-visiting the WR valley. Especially fond of their omelettes, scrambles and their sandwiches. And the diner's decor is Really Fantastic!! Hugs, Jeanine

This place has great food, a fun wait staff, nice atmosphere! Breakfast food is good and lunch choices are unique and tasty. Wish they were open for dinner!

The atmosphere of this diner is wonderful, you really step back into the past. While there was technically nothing wrong with the food, the burgers were nothing special, just pre-patty, no outstanding flavor for $10 for the burger. You do get a side but again, nothing to write home about. The service was excellent, so nothing to complain about at... More

I ate at this location with a work associate. The inside is very clean and nice. I ordered a French dip and it was so bad that I only ate the fries. The lunch menu was very plain, might be better for breakfast.
