I have to say Shorty's is quite a nice place to sit and enjoy great food and micro brews. We were given samples of a few micro brews and entertained by stories of each by the owner, I missed his name but he was wonderful. Also some local lore was tossed in for good measure. The food was great and... More

We had made a reservation for the Saturday but they wrote it down wrong and put it in for Friday / so we had to wait at the bar for 15-20 mins until a table was available. The manager was kind to buy us a round of cocktails to make it up to us. We had nachos salad and crab... More

Love this place for its food. Can't pick just one delight. All I can say you must come here if you visit Owen Sound for lunch or dinner. Be forewarned it can get busy as it is quite popular in this town. May have to reserve if more than 4 people in your group. My only negative is that it... More

Have enjoyed a few lunches here and found the daily specials to be interesting and reasonably priced. The service at lunch seems to be fairly efficient, especially when one has a limited time to eat and get back to work. Try to get in early as it often fills up over the lunch hour. Its a dull and drab place... More

This restaurant serves a good meal. The restaurant is very noisy when full - thats my only issue with it. You can barely have a conversation. I find when theyre busy, the quality of the food starts lacking somewhat, but generally meals are great. Awesome fish and chips

We go to Shorty's regularly. I always get the chicken souvlaki and it is always GREAT! Nice spot to go to have a quiet-ish dinner with or without a few drinks. Service is good and always prompt.

A good and varied menu. Lots of variety. Generous portions and excellent wait staff. Great selection of draft beers. Reasonable prices. Heavy on the calories.
