The Butter Chicken is Delicious!!!

The Owl & Firkin is a fun & unique atmosphere. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent!! They served our group of about 60 people, kids included, accurately & efficiently! We were extremely impressed and look forward to a return visit.

We arrived at the restaurant around 6pm. There was a good mix of business people and couples. We were greeted right away and sat in a section that was out of the main area. We wanted to be closer to the bar, so we moved to another table Drinks came quickly and food arrived shortly afterwards Food was ok, but... More

I don't live near this place anymore but it's the only restaurant that I know of that serves big boned beef ribs and they do a great job of it. Whenever I'm in the area I plan on getting some with hot wings. Great taste and a very good deal too.

The Firkin pubs are always fun. I usually go with my girlfriend and we either have a couple of drinks or have some nachos. The place is always clean and the staff friendly. It's nothing amazing, but it's a nice place. I find that most of the firkin pubs are consistent.

We went for lunch at the Owl & Firkin and enjoyed a great meal and a variety of cold beverages. The staff were very friendly and helpful with menu choices. I ended up choosing the Butter Chicken Pot Pie and was delighted as the taste! Will definitely be back again.

Last night I visited the Owl & Firkin with a few buddies for dinner and drinks. Since it was a nice day we decided to sit on the patio (roof top). When we found a place to sit we ordered drinks. Interestingly enough the rooftop is only limited to certain drinks so we had to order our drinks and pay... More

I went to there with my friend for beer and snake at night. The atmosphere was full of fun. The price is very reasonable.

This is a fun pub, located within walking distance of the Holiday Inn. Decent lunch and dinner menu. They show more hockey than soccer but you can press to get them to put up a footie game. Good service and fun atmosphere. Reasonable prices.

I definitely understand why they don't want to split cheques on Fridays - it's always nice and busy in there in the early afternoon! And for good reason! The servers are friendly and the food is absolutely amazing. I've been multiple times with coworkers, ordering many different things, and have always been pleased with the quality of the food.

Staff was friendly, food prepared well, good portions. Convenient location - close to highway 404. Seems to be lots of regulars that go there... like Cheers.
