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.

Fun and fabulous food! The service was friendly and kind. The menu expensive and delicious. I only visit the area once a year, but I'll be returning.

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

We stopped by this place on the recommendation of a local and were not disappointed! We ordered the steak and fries special and a California burger and both were really good. My husband was super impressed with the steak which was done a perfect medium rare. My burger was also delicious. Warning .......portion sizes are large !!!! Service was prompt... More

A quiet locals pub. Everyone is friendly and if you sit at the bar strangers will talk to you. Try the local brew invented by High School kids.

Interesting menu lots of variety. Enough to make me come try it again if the food wasn't great. We arrived around 4:30 a bit of a weird time. They were going through a shift change at the time. The first server was very friendly and explained that there would be a change in server. As the shift changed about 8... More

We went to this restaurant on the advice of one of the locals. We were staying in Owen Sound for one night after coming from Tobermory. I think we made a good choice. We were able to be seated right away even though it was a busy Friday night. Service was friendly and their wine prices were reasonable. I went... More

This is one of my favourite quick, light lunches in Owen Sound. A great salad which includes avocado and corn niblets with the greens, etc. This salad, and I think all of their salads are served with two warm pieces of garlic toast which are to die for. Give it a try, I bet you like it.

It's comfortable, dining area is great for conversation and comfortable for all age groups. We had a baby and a senior citizen - space was a requirement for our group and everyone was comfortably accommodated. The food was average. My daughter is Vegan and she was taken care of without question. The menu is very limited- chicken wings, sandwhiches, fries... More

Excellent tasty food. Very busy place.... however you get what you pay for.... and MAN...... do you PAY there.... 19$ for fish and chips and 15$ for a hot hamburg with fries, no veg. Good service and good food though... so IF you don't mind paying through the nose..... for nasty food ... go to Shorty's while in Owen Sound.
