Good atmosphere, great food. Food was fresh, hot and delicious. Salmon burger was top notch. Burgers were large and juicy. Kids chicken fingers homemade. Staff were friendly. We'll be back!

In Owen Sound for the night on our way to Manitoulin, we chance upon Shorty's while walking through a back alley of the downtown. When I say chanced, I mean it. There seemed little option for dinner downtown and we were getting a bit concerned...More

Shortie's is a great local place for dinner. The dishes our group had included saganaki, souvlaki, fish tacos, meatball soup and Caesar wrap. Everything tasted very good! The bar is decorated with a very impressive collection of vintage posters.

Fantastic burger, fantastic fries, and fantastic fish tacos were enjoyed. The atmosphere was reminiscent of an earlier time with movie posters from past Hollywood icons (e.g. Marilyn Monroe). The waitress we had was friendly and attentive.

We're also vegetarian and there were enough options. Food completely fine, some dishes a little pricey. Friday night very busy but they were staffed adequately. Our server very pleasant. Would return without hesitation. Would add more tables outside if possible.
