I stopped in for lunch. The French Onion soup was very good. Plenty of cheese and onions and not too salty or bland. I also had a side cobb salad with grilled chicken and blue cheese dressing. It was the perfect size for lunch. The...More

Stopped in on a recommendation and will be returning for sure. Food was fantastic. Sat out on the patio and had alternating smells of the delicious food being prepared in the kitchen and then fresh baked bread from the bakery across the street.

After visiting the Saturday Owen Sound market and shopping, Shorty's was our next stop. They open at 11: 30. I have enjoyed their burgers in the past but opted for an open face hot beef sandwich and fries, it was excellent.
