We ate here a few times while we were in Owen Sound. The food is very good, decent portions (so be careful how much you order) and the service is VERY friendly and knowledgeable. It seems the servers have been there a long time..speaks volumes about a place!!

You need to have the deep fried pickles here. Very yummy! Great atmosphere, lots of parking, good location. It is a bar type place but they do allow minors as it is a restaurant as well.

Fab food but beware huge portions! I had nachos to start and they would have served 2 for a main meal! Really nicely presented food- best presented nachos ever! Service very good and all staff friendly and helpful! Great evening - thank you!

Here at Shorty's now and having a wonderful time! Half price appetizers between 4-6pm Monday to Friday! Place is clean and staff are cheerful! Mixed crowd of family's and couples. Variety of beers on tap and summer drinks for the lady's so be sure to come and enjoy yourself! Two thumbs up!

This is not your typical pub: food and service are great and the food is fresh and tasty with all sorts of options (gluten free) as well as a variety of menu choice. The portions are also huge. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and our server was wonderful. Only thing was that in the summer heat wave, the AC was... More

We dined here. It is a great bar and grill. Service was excellent. We were warmly greeted and seated immediately. We shared mussels in the cream sauce to start-delicious. For mains we had the lobster ravioli and chicken and broccoli bake- both were great. I also had a liqueur coffee- I wish I could have had more! Our waitress was... More

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.
