“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

If you like "old school" hometown type bars...this is the place. It has local flair and feel. hats hanging from ceiling from all over the world. Beer and set ups available. We went several times.

“If ya haven't been to Shorty's, you haven't been to Port A”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

This was the the first bar in Port A and was a wedding present to Shorty a long time ago. After Shorty died,, her daughter, Rose took over. Now Miss Rose is gone, I heard it's now closed. Too Bad ...
