They care, provide great service, food and beer. They actually want you to spread the word and return. So nice to see in a restaurant. Love that they have added wait service. Will return again.

We were here back in 2006. We were staying right up the road at the Grand Victorian and the owner at the time suggested Short"s, and so we are back. The place has become soooo.... popular and seems to be doing well for itself. The food is great and so is the beer. We stopped twice before we headed back... More

I have been to Short's a handful of times over the past few years and they never disappoint. They always have 20 of their beers on tap, and most of them are brewed at the brewpub in Bellaire and not bottled or distributed (all of their other beers that are distributed are brewed at a production facility in Elk Rapids)....

Stopped here after golf. Husband said the Luma Lupa Liscious a specialty IPA was the best he'd had. The wings, a special that night and not always on the menu, were wonderful. They were juicy and meaty with a delicious sauce. If they're on the menu, they are not to be missed. A couple of nights later we again stopped... More

If you are a fan of craft beer and super variety while eating great food and enjoying fantastic service, you will like Short's! The ruebin sandwich was fantastic as was pulled pork. Everyone there seemed to enjoy as much as we did. If you like Bell's Brewery products you will definitely like Short's as well!!

Nice casual atmosphere. Better than average food. Good beer. The place was 'seat yourself' and very busy so you had to 'hover' over a table that looked like it may empty soon:( otherwise a great place.

My wife and I stopped here on our way up north. Let me tell you the food alone is worth the trip. I had the tomato basil soup and the turkey club and it was outstanding. Ordered a flight to wash everything down....Highly recommend if you like good food and craft beers.
