Stopped by Short's after a day of skiing Schuss Mountain ~ what a delight! The place was packed, and the table wait was forever, but we lucked out and found two seats at one of the bars (of which there were three). We ordered a flight of local brews, all of which were tasty! The menu was great, the beers... More

Second time we have been here when visiting in Michigan. They have wonderful food, awesome craft beer, and very friendly staff! They recently expanded which I thought would take away from the ambiance but it actually added a ton more room and looks great! They have live music almost nightly. Definitely a place to come to if in the area!!

Wed evening-5:30pm, 45 min wait. Tried to get a drink while waiting, took 15 minutes at bar w surly female bartender. Interesting ciders to try. Arrive at table and put in food order and ask for it all at once. Clarify we want as soon as available. One salad comes out, then later 2 with pizza-so odd. Manager comes over... More

What an incredible place to visit. Not only is the beer incredible, but their menu is too. We had 3 meals in 4 days here and never tired of the food or service. The waitstaff is quite attentive, and astute at making suggestions for every guest. Worth the wait!

We have been coming since Short's opened and still love it. Food is great and the beer fabulous. I didn't even know I liked beer until Short's. If I have one complaint it is that the creative minds of Short's are always off inventing new tastes. Therefore, I haven't seen Licorice Lager on the menu in years. 😜I loved it!!

Had an early dinner at Short's while at Shanty Creek resort with my wife. Their sandwiches are superb! I had a White Pepper turkey sandwich that tasted great. Their craft beers are also magnificent. The "Huma Lumpa Licious" IPA is top drawer! They have a wide variety of craft beers (also for sake) so no beer lover should be disappointed.... More

Ate here for dinner while in the area for wine tasting. It as well worth the 45 minute wait on a Saturday night. Excellent pizza and amazing cheesy bread.
