Ate with family over new year's week, the beer, service and atmosphere were excellent, and the food was average. We had a sandwich and mac and cheese that were good, just not outstanding. The beer is the main draw here...

We have been here about 5 times since I have been alive. When younger, it was wee small, crowded, and a bit more quaint. But then they grew and got too big for their britches, as well they should have!! This is a must stop...More

The beer is worth the wait, the food is not so much. Stay for the festival atmosphere though - everybody is having a good time.

Short's was crowded before noon, and kept drawing a crowd. Toughest decision was what beer to choose...this is one of the biggest selections we've seen. Food was really good, and service even better. Definitely worth a trip.

Being from Grand Rapids, we now have roughly 30 breweries in our area. Short’s is still our favorite brewery restaurant in Michigan. The beer is just incredible - there’s always about 20 beers on tap, and there is always new ones and they are always...More

Swung back to Short's after a visit to Shanty Creek Resort for lunch. Great beers, and wonderful panini and quesadilla for lunch by charming server Anna. We'll be returning soon with friends and family. Thanks, Shorts!

For being a small town out away from it all, this place sure draws a crowd! Enjoyed visiting with the bartender, Scott. Had an appetizer and a couple beers. Delightful evening.
