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.

We didn't make a reservation and even though it was really busy (Saturday night) they accommodated us with a combination of a table and later a spot at the bar...I was impressed with how they pulled this off. Wife and I ordered calamari and coconut shrimp appetizers and I've never had calamari that good. The shrimp was excellent too, tasted... More

It is always busy so sometimes it can be a bit noisy, but just people having a good time. The food is always good and the wait staff are very efficient.

Had a business friend of mind roll into town. Decided to try Shorty's. The food was absolutely great. Large menu, generous portions and reasonable price for quality of product and service. If you're in Owen Sound stop by!

Good food, not cheap, service was average. I would eat there again. However, their salads included with the meal are a little small, so I would order one by itself for more quantity.

I've been here many times with many groups of people and it's always great. Excellent food and service with a great atmosphere, and it's fun to see the hockey teams once in a while. Will definitely continue returning!
