“A good quality restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We went here for a weekday lunch. We have eaten here for dinner as well. The food is always excellent, the service is good, and a great atmosphere. This place is ideal for a casual meal with family/friends, business, or for a dinner date. We have found that the bar side is usually quieter than the other side of the restaurant.

“Awesome Eats!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Great food! May be a little pricier that most places, but definitely worth every penny! The service was speedy and attentive, food came in the perfect amount of time and I appreciated the variety.
We had the spinach artichoke dip to start and it was very tasty and came with tortilla chips, pitas, carrots and celery. I have never tried it with carrots and celery, but loved it!
This will for sure be a spot we go to again when we are in the area. nom nom :)

“Very nice place and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We traveled up from Kincardine to eat at Shorty's. Atmosphere was nice and the food was even better. Had the coconut shrimp appetizer and they were great. Also, one in the party had the cheese and broccoli chicken and loved it. I had the pickerel and it was very tasty. It was lighly coated and fried nicely. Everything was good and the service was outstanding.

“Wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Great food. Great place. Service was excellent.

Can't believe we hadn't been there before!

Looks small from outside but pretty big once you're inside. Patio great!
