We have been there a few times, so I thought it was time to do a rating. We have been there for lunches, dinners and appetizers. The food has never disappointed us. I took my husband there on his Birthday for a bunch of appetizers and a cold draft. The atmosphere is very nice, the restaurant is clean and the... More

Shorty's always has excellent food and a great atmosphere. A great place to eat and/or have a beer on Friday or Saturday night.

This place gets rave reviews, but we were disappointed. Food was OK, but very expensive. My guy wanted a steak but settled for a burger.

Okay selection of alcohol. Servers were fairly rude. Food far below par. Nice atmosphere. Just not the most comfortable place. Feels to much like a kelseys.

Second time eating at Shorty's and I haven't been disappointed yet. The Wait staff is excellent. Very good personalities and certainly exceptionally friendly. The steak was amazing although a tad expensive ($32.00 I believe) for a place like owen sound I would have expected closer to $26-28 nevertheless, for a once a year stop, seems like a great place!

I had the small prime rib which was nicely done with properly cooked veggies (why is that so hard for most restaurants?). But the yorkshire pudding was cold! My wife's crab cakes had little crab, but tasted good. Her dinner salad was very small, but it also tasted good. So far the dinner might have been acceptable except for the... More

Visited based on TA reviews. Friendly personnel, clean throughout. We shared the crab cakes, steamed mussels and escargot. Warm, fresh bread was served as well. The mussels and escargot were top notch..would return for those 2 dishes. The crab cakes, however, contained way too much filler and were over baked. Bummer, I love crab cakes but these didn't stack up.... More
