Excellent tasty food. Very busy place.... however you get what you pay for.... and MAN...... do you PAY there.... 19$ for fish and chips and 15$ for a hot hamburg with fries, no veg. Good service and good food though... so IF you don't mind paying through the nose..... for nasty food ... go to Shorty's while in Owen Sound.

Two rules when serving mussels on the menu...please make sure they are fresh, and make sure they are scrubbed. Fresh..yes, they were, but when i picked up one, it was linked to another by a good sized, very thick, finger length chunk of algae. Both mussels had algae "beards" on them. I debated mentioning this to my server but decided against it. She was preoccupied, i am pretty laid back, and there were other patrons close by. We had to ask for cutlery, which was brought to our table after the mussels were consumed. I don't blame the server for the mussels having "beards" she is not the cook. Rest assured, other people WILL complain about this, and had i had my iphone, i would have photographed it. If you enjoy mussels, consider yourselves lucky i didn't. We've visited Shorty's before, on a few occasions, but i am sorry to say it..this will be our last visit.

While visiting my sister in Owen Sound, I decided to get together with some (old) school friends. Shorty's was their unaminous choice, and I now undertsand why.
Even though the place was relatively busy for a Wednesday evening; there was no problem with us being able to chat.
Most importantly, of course, is that the food was delicious and there is a wide selection of food and drink. Service was prompt and friendly, which made this special evening even more agreeable.
Definitely a stop next time we're in Owen Sound!

We came in here for a late night dinner - great food lots of selection and our server was great!! Dessert was scrumptious!! Only thing is we keep wanting to go again but the only day we seem to be through Owen Sound is on a Sunday and they are closed! Disappointing.
