My Husband and I ordered fish, which was grilled salmon and vegetables. You could choose a side to accompany it. I chose a Greek salad. Unfortunately, there were no chunks of Feta, as menu describes. Also, the accompanying vegetables were hard as stone. They were...More

Convenient location downtown but unlike other downtown places, we found parking easily. It was very hearty, good food, and the staff was very friendly. We had a great time.

It was time to eat. We were driving around the city looking for someplace reasonable and comfortable. We landed at Shorty's and the experience was delightful. It was somewhere between lunch and dinner.

This very friendly place was top notch for steaks and had a good range of draught beers too (Killanan Alter highly recommended). Lively atmosphere and apparently nearly always busy so booking recommended.

Hello, My Wife and I are vacationing in Sauble Beach from August 1st to August 10th. We are first timers to Sauble Beach. I am looking to find a Bar/Pub that shows the UFC fight on Saturday night August 1st. Do you carry the UFC fights? Are there any nearby places that you can recommend if you don't? We will have a rental car and are able to travel to nearby towns etc... Thank you very much. We will definitely be stopping in for some food and drinks while in town. Thanks. Joseph Calgary, AB
