Decent Pub Food - Good Service

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... read 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.

The restaurant was very busy when we arrived.n They offered a special on appetizers, so the place was crowded for that reason. The food was good (I had the steak caesar wrap and sweet potato fries) and the prices reasonable. The staff was friendly, and were more available once the crowds left.

Busy place, booking is recommended. Food was delicious and our waitress was eager to help our choice. Not really a place for children as it is very busy

We always take friends and visitors to this bar & grill and have never been disappointed. It's popular with locals so it can be busy. Staff are always friendly and efficient. Food is good. Some vegetation options including their "Garden Burger."

On a Friday nite this place was packed. My buddy and I say at he bar for supper which turned out to be a great idea as wait service was extra friendly and conversation with other diners was entertaining. Hamburgers and ribs are outstanding. Order coleslaw - it's made in house and is very good. Great selection of beers on... More

I had eaten here only once before, really good food and good service. My friends and I went for dinner and we all had good food and the service was ok until the end of the meal. I was the only one who had red wine, I choose a glass of shiraz. My second to last sip was full of... More
