We came here on Saturday night of Mother's Day weekend. Place was really busy. Wait staff seemed a little frazzled. Slow with service. Food quality was very good and at reasonable prices. Just would have been nice to have better service.

I ate the steak meal which had a European flair to it. I also have eaten Sunday brunch here, which was also a fine meal. Wine is served, as well as cocktails, but children are welcome too.

My first time eating at The Owl since the new owner's took over. I've heard mixed reviews, not about quality, but mostly about price. And while $10 is fairly steep for a grilled cheese and fries, it was worth every penny. Undoubtedly the best grilled...More
