I ordered the Buckingham Green salad and a Bellaire Brown beer. Both were very good . I have come back for that salad 3 times. Our table shared the artichoke dip as well. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Our table was a bit cramped though and we had a lot of traffic by our table as the band was setting up.... More

We came on a very cold and snowy evening - around 8 pm. We had to wait for about 10 minutes but there are 3 bars to wait at and there was live music. Once seated, we were ordering right away and our appetizer came right out (unfortunately the pretzel appetizer was gone at this time so we will have... More

Awesome "little" place though they have really expanded throughout the years, that almost own the whole block now. Interesting good beers! Server gave us a little tour and a neat merchandise shop!

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!!
