We stayed in Ketchum in the Knob Hill Inn. instead of eating breakfast in the hotel - too many people - we decided to head out down the road to Hailey and Shorty's. Very glad we did. Mostly locals in a very uncrowded diner. Food was good and they had espresso drinks. Very nice server.

The food is very good. Diner style environment serving breakfast and lunch. Fast service and friendly staff. The food quality is very consistent. The owner is almost always there and hands on.

Although Shorty's is only open for breakfast and lunch it is totally worth it to get up early and work it into your schedule! The decor is so fun and breakfast is absolutely terrific! Especially the hand made chicken friend steak, yummy!

Locally owned and great service. Expect typical diner, restaurant burgers and such. Great milkshakes and breakfasts.

Leatherette booths and retro appointments; Bruce Willis opened the restaurant as a place for a relaxing breakfast or lunch in a unique setting.

Had a salmon omelette. It was super delicious, the waitress was pleasant but she kept starring at me weird as if I was going to leave without paying. You don't see too many black folks around here, besides that awkward encounter with her the fool was delicious and price well :)

We went for breakfast and they did not have several of the traditional menu items... No orange juice and they were also out of several of the traditional items on a regular business morning. We left after the waitress did not seem to care about serving us.

Went there with family an hour before they closed. She had cleaned up the ice cream Machine by the time we sat down so no milkshakes (which they're famous for). She said she would start it back up but obviously I felt bad since she had stated she'd already finished cleaning it. We placed our order; food was delicious as... More
