Has a good atmosphere, fun place to socialize for drinks,great food and downtown so close to the Roxy Theatre. Also is a good size restaurant so can accommodate a larger group.

Delicious food (and tons of it!) Had the hamburger most recently and wasn't disappointed; as always, the fries are delicious and slightly crispy (my favourite). Also a huge fan of the onion rings. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Owen Sound. Will return!

We had a very long day and checked Trip Advisor for our best meal option. This place was #3. Beer was cold and chicken wings were meaty and tasty. Mains were disappointing. According to other reviews, "best souvlaki we've ever had". I tried it and was very disappointed with the flavour. My wife's quesadilla was just OK. I think this... More

This place is always a hit for date night or even with the kids. It can get very busy and crowded and isn't as great for young children. The food is great and the staff are friendly and hilarious. Thanks for the consistency!! We are always back! The chicken wings are best in Owen Sound!

Arrived here without reservations around 8 pm on a Friday night and got a table, a menu and a drink within about 5 minutes. A good start! I don't usually eat at late as 8 pm and I don't often go to pubs, and our first impressions were positive. I ate a simple chicken Caesar wrap with sweet potato fries... More

Shorty's restaurant has by far the best food in Owen Sound. I highly recommend this restaurant for food and for atmosphere. It is the 'place to be' in town. The servers are very knowledgeable and always there when you need them. Good music as well, but not so loud you can't hear the conversation. I have not eaten on their... More

We had great food at a reasonable price. Grill is conveniently located. We walked there from our B&B so paid no attention to parking

With no reservation took a chance and we were taken of in spite the crowd. Service was quick and efficient. Started our dinners with a couple of Bloody Mary's, salads in tomato juice. The house wine was excellent and our meals started with an excellent chicken curry soup, no pickerel that night but the salmon was excellent. Would recommend this... More

The food here is amazing. The ambiance was great. We had a big table in the back to seat all of us and the service was great.
