Try the fries!

We had an excellent lunch at Shorty's during our visit to Owen Sound. The atmosphere is casual but very nice (not a noisy pub place at all). The food was excellent - I definitely recommend the fries! Minor issue was that we were unable to connect to the Wifi - the password provided did not work.

Shorty's was short on food quality. Most businesses send you there thinking that this Bar & Grill will cover your dinner needs however, not so. I am used to better quality cooking and I do believe this restaurant had front line process dinner cooks. Not good.....

This restaurant is located in downtown and has convenient parking behind the building or on the street. The hostess greeted us right away and ushered us to a quieter table away from the bar. The waitress was professional and pleasant. Our food arrived in reasonable time and was cooked to perfection. Because the food is so good we would likely... More

A group of 14 of us visited after a day of hiking the Bruce Trail. They were easily able to accommodate us. The two servers were great especially for a vary diverse group. The food was plentiful and all left well fed. It was a great experience.

Had a fantastic lunch today with my wife and son. Everything is fresh, home cooking. Great fish and chips, club sandwich and Mediterranean wrap. Great atmosphere and fantastic service. I've eaten here at least a half dozen times over the past few years when either in town for business or simply passing through. Every experience has been fantastic. Shortys is... More

The fish and chips were great with a nice atmosphere of a sports bar. Service was quick also. I recommend eating here for a good time out. Prices are high though

We had a family get together at Shorty's on August 8, 2015. As always the service was great, the beer was cold and the food was delicious. Our server had our beverage order to us in less than 5 minutes. My daughter's glass of Diet Pepsi was never empty for more than a couple minutes. My beer never was empty... More

The food here is good, definitely one of the best places to eat in Owen Sound. This is basally good bar and Greek food. The quality is OK! The portions are good. The staff are friendly. Unfortunately you wouldn't find better in town.

We ordered a bunch of appetizers and they were very good. Also stopped in for a drink one evening at the bar and the place had a very welcoming vibe. Not where I'd go for a special, romantic dinner but very good for a comfortable drink and good meal.
