This is such a cute little restaurant, kind of like sitting in grandma's cottage. The food is average and ample. On the particular night we stopped in our server was very slow and rather rude. We don't frequent Pete and Shortys because it doesn't really have value for us, I can make frozen tater tots and burgers at home.

They have some of the best clam chowder in the area. Normally available on Fridays. Their Shorty burgers are small but good. Definitely a nice sports bar.

Pete and Shorty's offers a nice neighborhood sports bar and grill atmosphere. Great burgers, fish and chips, and great service. This place is usually full, and well worth trying.

Four of us ate there after the LRB concert. It was about 1030 on a Saturday night. Everything was very good, can't wait to go back during the day to try the pork shank!

Never dissatisfied when we visit this Pete & Shorty's location. The burgers are great, as is the buffalo chicken sandwich - my personal favorite. Another great thing is how laidback the atmosphere and the servers are - just a chill place to enjoy a delicious meal. Great for lunch. Never been for dinner before but I will soon, as they... More

Simple little bar. Arrived with our BEvERage cup from the game to receive a free beer. Decent tavern food. Took DD to the restroom and she peaked. Lady at the bar knew it when we came out and gave her a button. Had a great laugh!
