Local Food and Drinks
We highly recommend this place! Best food and drinks in town (in our biased opinion). Shorts is famous for unique craft brews including ciders and sours. We recommend trying their spinach artichoke dip or soft pretzels. They also have a great selection of pizzas and you cannot go wrong with that. Overall, a good variety of food and surely something for everyone! Play it safe and make a reservation on their website.
