I met a friend at Shorty's Place yesterday. I admit, it's been a while since I visited, with Covid and all that. The new lunch menu had many appealing options including tacos, sandwiches, soup, salad and flatbread pizza. My friend had the chicken philly steak...and I had a vegetarian flatbread pizza. Those who follow my reviews know I sometimes have trouble finding vegetarian options so I was relieved to see a few things on this menu to try. But of course, we met at Shorty's Place more for the comfortable outdoor ambiance in historic downtown Punta Gorda and the liquid libations. I love their extensive variety of craft beers and my friend enjoys Bloody Mary's. Service by Heather was excellent.More
I Love this bar! It is by its very nature a true and must stop destination while visiting Punta Gorda. It is a constant. A place that visitors and locals alike can always find a cold libation and a friendly conversation. This truly unique and...last of the Mohican “Dive Bars” attracts almost every kind of patron and all are welcome. The service is top notch and the establishment lively. They have regular entertainment and karaoke several times per week. Additionally, there is a pool room with free pool. The food menu is limited and service for food hours vary. People come here for fun and if that’s your goal, you will also Love This Bar!More
Yep, that's right! Hubby has taken a "hankering" to Shorty's! Far from being a fancy place, he just loves the down-home atmosphere in the outside bar area, and the feeling you can be all alone, have a private conversation, or join in the activity around...you. It's a neighborhood bar that even non-drinkers (like us) can relax and enjoy. We're not night owls, so our time there has been for lunch or late afternoon. Much of the food is simple, home-made, well prepared, and tasty! The hamburgers and scratch soups are great!More
If you want to kick up your heels, and consume more than one fairly-priced bottles of beer, Shorty's Place is for you. Although they have limited seating inside of the bar, the outside parking lot (dotted with tables and umbrellas) is where the action is....And few bars can match the action in that parking lot, when Shorty's Place brings in a live band. Bucket of beer flowing in and out of the door give you an indication that this is an action-packed stop (with or without your motorcycle). Rumor also has it that Shorty's puts out a great hamburger; but a full dinner menu it is not. Try this one on for size, if you want to "get down and dirty"...More
A good spot for the boys to have a few beers and enjoy the afternoon. I won’t call it a dive bar, but I will say it is short on extravagance. Today they had entertainment and had the place opened up to the parking lot....Dropped in before with another couple over a weekend in Punta Gorda and enjoyed ourselves.More
