I have been wanting to go to Shorts for years now and finally made my way to Bellaire recently. Short's has a brick storefront with large windows on the main street of sleepy little Bellaire. As you walk in there's a wall of clothing; t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, biking jerseys, all for sale and next to that is the bar seating 15-20. Communal bar tables fill the rest of the open space in the main room. I didn't walk around much but there's another seating area next door that I believe has a stage. A large chalkboard adorns the wall behind the bar and a small chalkboard advertises the daily food specials next to the ordering station. You walk to the bar, order food and beer, pay, and are then served at your table. Each successive order must be placed the same way.

The staff was great, friendly, talkative, and happy to be there or so it seemed. Sampler paddles are cheap and recommended with the extensive taplist while pints are reasonable and delicious. The to-go beer is stacked in single door coolers behind the bar and there seems to be a large variety for sale at any given moment. For some reason I didn't expect much from the sandwiches but they ended up being amazingly good with unique combinations and super fresh ingredients.The charcuterie plate was nicely put together as well. There was a lot of great beer on tap along with the oddballs Short's is so well known for, all of which were fun to try.

I can't really say enough about the food or beer at Short's. It was probably my favorite stop on a recent trip around the lake and a place I will no doubt be back again.
