Perfect service. Great burger. My only complaint would be the fries. Generic McCain crispy fried from the grocery store. Fresh cut fries would be awesome.

We are from out of town and decided to try it out. We love visiting Owen sound and I personally have been going there every year since I was a child and never even noticed the place. It doesn't look like much from the outside, inside is tastefully decorated and the service was wonderful. I had the steak and ceaser... More

Stopped by on a road trip after reading reviews from previous diners. Plenty of menu items to choose from. They have great food, large portions, very tasty. The service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable. My only negative remark is that the Entrance way has a large step up/down which was not marked - definitely a fall hazard, which one... More

We've been here several times in the past few years and never been disappointed with the food or service... It is busy for dinner so reservations are recommended to avoid delays or disappointment as it is always busy and hopping! ... The service is always good with friendly and helpful staff... The steaks and prime rib are always good here... More

Googling "bar and grill" led us to "Shorty's" which turned out o be in the downtown section, away from the bay. Great food and drinks, very REASONABLE prices, and great friendly service mad his a surprising good memory. I had a low... More

Shorty's was everything we were told it would be! We asked the waitress if we could please take our time in ordering as we were not in any rush and she was happy to accommodate us. We ordered the garlic bread which was simply amazing and a good portion for the two of us! My husband ordered a steak and... More

Stopped in here for dinner tonight after seeing it's the top rated restaurant in town. Even though it's a small town we made reservations for 7:30 and were glad we did since the place was packed on a Thursday night. Our server was extremely friendly, personable and attentive. I ordered the salmon burger and coleslaw, and my husband ordered the... More

Decided to try this place for lunch after reading the reviews and we are so very glad we did. The wings are huge and awesome, the burgers are massive and the onion soup is well above average. The family all really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere is also very nice.
