We went to the Owl Tavern for dinner last night, Valentine's Day, and had an excellent dinner. Our waiter, Joe, was great, and the rest of the staff was attentive and friendly. The menu is a bit pricey, but our dinner was excellent. We both had the rack of lamb, which came with warm french bread, a choice of soup... More

We had never had dinner at the Owl so were interested in the venue and the food. All in all we had a good experience. The wait staff were very helpful and the menu had plenty of choices. We had the cheese bread (very good) to start and each had different entrees. One dinner was over cooked and staff made... More

They have bad lighting for a reason. So you cannot see the filthy mess that is your food. A greasy disaster. Go to the willow if you want good food at good prices.

One of our favorite restaurants when we're looking for great food and service in Grass Valley. The Owl is consistently excellent and offers a wonderful variety of food and drink. Our party of six picked from across the menu and no one needed a doggy bag, the plates were picked clean. Make reservations, it can get busy especially on weekends.... More

This restaurant in downtown Grass Valley is half historic bar and half restaurant. They have prime rib on the weekends and it is simply fantastic. They also have a complete lunch and dinner menu and a full bar. The wait staff are both experienced and efficient.

Wonderful "Billy Blue" bread and delicious ribeye steak, cooked to perfection. And to finish the meal, Irish Coffee! Atmosphere was great, and we sat right by the cozy fireplace on our visit. Service was a little slow and disjointed, thus the four stars, but otherwise the meal was great!

My wife and I went to the Owl for a spur of the moment dinner out. I had a NY strip and she had the sea bass. We enjoyed our dinner very much. The service was prompt and courteous and the atmosphere is really warm and comfortable. Nice place for a couples night out.
