Recently attended a group function at Shorty's and was not overly impressed. The service was good. However, the decor is old and tired and needs updating. I was pleased to see a few new menu items since last time there (probably over a year ago) and a few with lower fat/calorie content. I had the chicken/veg wrap which was "ho-hum"... More

On the spur of the moment we decided to go out for dinner. We tried Shorty's and that night the special happened to be the prime rib. What a tender cut of beef.

My wife and I dined at Shorty's one evening in September. The owner was quick to great us at the front door and we were quickly seated. The restaurant was very busy and the service was a little on the slow side because of the shear volume they had to deal with in the kitchen. We were very pleased with... More

From the minute we walked in we were welcomed. They sat our group of 8 in no time and the place was busy. A very complete menu accompanied by a nice wine list. Our server was informative and very efficient. Dinners ranged from steaks to souvlaki to fish and all were received very well. Prices are reasonable. Anyone visiting Owen... More

Had a great diner at Shorties. The place was full for a Tuesday night. Had the soup as an appetizer which was excellent. continued on to the main course with the chicken souvlaki. Portions were huge and very tasty. Would recommend anytime.

We were on a motorcycle trip and riding through Owen Sounds. We made a planned stop at Shorty's for a fairly early (well, for us) dinner on a Monday evening. We only walked through the inside briefly because we were off to sit on the patio but it looks very nice and there seems to be a few different sections... More
