Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The waitress the night we were there you could tell had had a bad day. She still was very good. Our food was good but not great. The older gentleman next to us said that the steak was the BEST he had ever had. We...watched him cut it and it was very easy.More

There was nothing fabulous about this place, but it was good and the staff was very nice. We were visiting Furman for Homecoming and a friend recommended the stop. We had sandwiches and pasta and no one was blown away, but no one was disappointed...either so I guess that's good!More

My husband and I had lunch at Shortfield's this week and it was excellent. We had sandwiches that were not only delicious, we had leftovers for two meals! My husband had the french onion soup with his Reuben and I had the soup of the...day (loaded baked potato) with my club sandwich. Both were very good. The server was friendly and very efficient. We will definitely dine here again. Be sure and take a sweater or wrap in with you though, the booth we had was very cold!More

We were passing through Travelers Rest and this restaurant by chance. I got the Horseshoe Sandwich on Texas Toast. It was fantastic. Took half of it home. I couldn't even finish the rest of it last night. I got the roast beef version with the...tater tots and cheese sauce topping. Can't wait to go back for another or try something else. My husband had the Rueben which was excellent also. Sweet Potato fries were great too. My only complaint would be the hostess. She was not too friendly. The other wait staff was wonderful.More

I was only in the area to help a friend get her pet to the vet for surgery. So ordered food for the both us to go, I ordered the French Dip Sandwich with Sweet Potato Chips. The Chip are excellent. The Roast Beef tasted...very old and perhaps outdated. Also I expect some fat in the beef but way too much in and around the meat. I could not even eat it.More

Daughter suggest Shortfields. We've been to Traveler's Rest many times, but this was our first visit to Shortfields. They were quite busy, so the service was a bit slow, but the food was excellent.

Good food - sluggish service. Others that were seated after us got their meal before us. The food is good and the dining room and patio have good vibes. I hope that my next visit will be better. Yes, I plan to go back.

We just moved to the area so don’t have much context. The food was good. The service was coffee shop level - good & friendly but certainly not classy. The rub is the bill for two was nearly $150 with tip. For that amount, we...would expect white linen, candles, & impeccable service. We’d go back for burgers maybe but not for anything pricey.More

Shortfield's was decent, especially with the amount of food and the service. Very average restaurant, food doesn't stand out in particular but we were not disappointed. It is a little expensive, but not too bad.

We spend a few weeks at Table Rock Resort every summer and are just over a 30 min drive over to Travelers Rest and make sure we make one or two visits to Shortfields each year. The food is always good and the staff friendly....The outdoor seating, though it can be on the warm side sometimes even though tables are covered by large umbrellas, is always enjoyable and allows patrons - including us - to bring their dogs. Their "white wings" on appetizer menu are outstanding and unique, chicken & waffles and chicken cordon bleu w/great mashed potatoes and collards are consistently good meals. Four of us were just there yesterday, 7/24/21, and if Bethany is working as a server when you go be sure to ask for her - she really hustles and provides great service with a great attitude!More

It had been a long time since I had been to Shortfield's. I invited a friend to go for lunch and she accepted. It was on a Wednesday. We got there around 12:30 and there was no wait at all. We were seated and our...server, Makaylin, asked for our beverage choice. She brought our drinks right away. We asked for the Jalapeno Pimento Cheese Dip. It is so good! It is served with warm pita chips and also tortilla chips. Enough for sharing and enough to ask for carry out container. She ordered the Reuben Sandwich which comes with thin sliced Corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, Thousand Island, on Rye bread. She also got a side of sweet potato chips, which are delicious! They have cinnamon, sugar, and cayenne pepper on them. I ordered the Cuban Sandwich, which comes with roasted pork, Black Forest ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, and honey mustard on Cuban roll. I ordered a side of homemade slaw. It was perfect. Not too sweet and not too sour. The restaurant is nice, food amazing, and service with a smile! Will definitely return.More

My wife and I travel in an RV during the summer. Staying in Travelers Rest at the KOA it was time for a good restaurant meal and Shortfields was the best choice we could have made. Excellent cocktails, decent wine selection and good service. The...manager is present and making sure your experience is positive.

The trout and it's toppings are bland, and the baked potato lukewarm and hard, (reheated), yuck. Good service, good drinks, mediocre food that's way overpriced!

I was told “no, they do not take reservations”. We no longer go to Shortfields because when we got there one night they could not seat us because their tables were “reserved”. Poor management.
