“Wonderful pizza and salads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

We had a wonderful dinner- the raw scallop appetizer was incredible as was the lobster and citrus salad. Very fresh ingredients prepared simply but perfectly. The mushroom pizza with gremolata
had a delicious crisp crust and the topping was great- perfect amount. The restaurant is comfortable and the service attentive.

“A nice change on Main Street in Gloucester.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Drawn by $1 oysters for the first hour of business (Wellfleets the day I was there), the variety of very creative cocktails made the visit very worthwhile.

The brick fired oven has really changed the atmosphere of the West End of Main St. A nice variety of hand crafted, wood baked pizzas is very welcome.

The staff, very young but very knowledgeable, did an excellent job. You didn't want for attention and you weren't overwhelmed by it.

The only thing missing, in my opinion, is wifi. That end of Main Street has horrible service. If that's the worst of it, Short and Main will do well and really challenge the competition!
