We visited Shorty's on a Saturday night 730. There was a table available immediately although it was a very busy place. I ordered the chicken parmigiano which ended up being overcooked pasta with a cheap marinara sauce. The chicken breast was cooked perfectly and was moist. My partner had the Godzilla burger. The meat was delicious. It tasted fantastic. It... More

It was a busy place for a Tuesday night. Waited almost half an hour for some potato skins and a salad. Skins were good and salad ingredients were fresh, but too much Kraft salad dressing-disappointing. Would not go back unless I was prepared to wait and didn't have great expectations.

Usually this restaurant deserves 5 stars, but not this visit. We always went there for our anniversary dinner but this visit was horrific. First we were ignored for 10 minutes when we arrived. Finally a waitress rolled her eyes and seated us. After editing 15 minutes for a menu, another waitress walked by and slapped a couple on the table.... More

We stopped in by a random local suggesting it for lunch and we had the chicken/pork souvlaki lunches and they were amazing!! Best Greek food we have had since moving to Collingwood - very cool spot - (kind of) a local secret... :o) lol we'll definitely make it a destination for lunch come bike season. Cheers!!

I have to say Shorty's is quite a nice place to sit and enjoy great food and micro brews. We were given samples of a few micro brews and entertained by stories of each by the owner, I missed his name but he was wonderful. Also some local lore was tossed in for good measure. The food was great and... More

We had made a reservation for the Saturday but they wrote it down wrong and put it in for Friday / so we had to wait at the bar for 15-20 mins until a table was available. The manager was kind to buy us a round of cocktails to make it up to us. We had nachos salad and crab... More
