You’ll find American food and a warm welcome at Shorties Portsmouth on Bellevue Terrace. Known by many locals at the go-to spot in Southsea for burgers, steaks and ribs alongside excellent vegetarian options, you’ll feel instantly at home at Shorties. Choose from delicious options such as deep fried, golden whole tail scampi, an 8oz chargrilled burger with all the trimmings including fried onions and pineapple rings, breaded, stuffed garlic mushrooms or a full rack of tender pork ribs glazed with BBQ sauce served with a jacket potato covered in lashings of real butter. As you can see, this is a popular spot – and with good reason too – so advance booking is recommended.

Shorties has been around for such a long time, and it’s easy to see why!! Delicious food and cocktails, big portions, great service! Only a small restaurant so book in advance!
We celebrated our ruby anniversary at shorties and weren't disappointed. The food was lovely , the staff were very helpful and polite. All in all, Avery nice evening. Thank you shorties.
It was quite chilly in the restaurant, with the occasional short blast of heat. We hadn’t been to Shorties for about 18 months and expected a few changes eg price, menu, I was disappointed with the salad that which was included with my steak, wish I’d known it contained most things I don’t like in a salad (peppers, cucumber,onion) and I would of asked if I could change it for something else. Apart from that the meal was very nice and we will be returning.
The service was quick and the waitresses were lovely. I had fillet steak which was cooked perfectly for me (medium rare) which decent portion of chips and salad. However I reckon the salad could have been a bit better. I also had the calamari to start which wasn't that great. A bit too cooked and thick batter for me.
Visited with friends whom had been before many years ago, there was a good choice of dishes on menu & although venue was busy the service was very good & there was a pleasant friendly atmosphere .All in our party enjoyed their visit & their food
Considering that there was an electrical fault, the staff were amazing and the chef cooked by candlelight our meals were absolutely beautiful. The steak was the tenderest I have eaten in a long time. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Really good food and excellent value. The portions were also very big. My only (minor) complaint would be the lack of any real ales. They only have bottled beers or nitro keg.
Lovely cozy restaurant...attentive service...probably the best steak I've ever had in this country! Lovely cozy restaurant...attentive service...probably the best steak I've ever had in this country!
