This is a good place to go with a group or just a couple. The food is very good and the service is great. We would highly recommend trying this spot. Happy Owen Sounders

Shorty's does tend to be busy because it is popular. The menu is large and varied and the service is friendly and good. They have several Greek options and specials each night. I have been there several times and the food was always good ... as for price it 's about average for a pub-style restaurant. Located in downtown Owen... More

We've eaten at this restaurant many times. It is conveniently located downtown Owen Sound - street parking available only. Full menu - and lots of beer on tap. Great wait staff as well. I would highly recommend it for a appetizers or dinner. Wine list is short , which is my only complaint. and be sure to make a reservation... More

Went to Shorty's to celebrate my wife's Birthday with friends as this was her choice. Very polite and friendly service from the time we entered to the time we left. Food was good, hot, and served quickly. Will definitely go back in the future.

A great place in downtown area for lunch or dinner. They are famous for their Greek dishes but their chicken florentine is one of my favorites.

Shorty's seems to be the place to go on Saturday night and I was there twice in September and once in October. Two times I was with a group and another time with a friend. It is always busy and the food is so-so. The Saturday night special is Roast Beef and it was good the one time I had... More

Visited this restaurant because of the good online reviews and the stellar website. While the staff were efficient and friendly, the food was really just average - not bad - but nothing really outstanding. Although we ordered appetizers and it was half-price appetizer night, the prices of the regular items seemed a bit high - $20 for fish and chips?... More

Great Veggie burger here. Greek fries are also good if you want fried food. Other than that though, there are very few options here for vegan/vegetarian people. I would like to see some more healthy options like the hummus starter. Atmosphere is good and service is friendly.
