Great Food

Considering we didn't have any reservations on Valentine's Day, they were about to accommodate us at the bar. The service was great with the very friendly bar staff. The dinner special was wonderful, cooked just right and portions were large - more than I could eat!

shorty's would be our first choice for a pub style restaurant. The menu offers good home style cooking with about average prices. Service is good and the setting very comfortable and relaxed. Nice place to go with a few friends for beers.

Popular with locals. Good food, reasonable prices. Friendly, helpful, loyal staff. Good selection of draft beers. Some Greek influences. Check out the baclava.

We wanted a home made burger. The restaurant is large, decorated with classic movie posters and memorabilia. TV's adorn the walls playing the sports games. Customers are to wait to be seated. Our hostess was not very friendly and didnt seem happy. We order two bacon cheese burgers with fries, gravy and a glass of water, our bill was $34.00.... More

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
