We had a group of four. We ordered three beers and four soup and salads. Our bill was $76, and the portions were mediocre at best. Enough said.

Decided to try this quaint little place for lunch and it was great! The Blue cheese burger with caramelized onions was great! There is a full bar if interested. Definitely will go again!

Loved the salads with homemade blue cheese dressing! Plates have always been consistently cold. Fresh hot bread with butter was delicious. Options for kids were not that great. Steak was average.

Kids. Potato wrapped in tin foil? Anyone that thinks this is four star food should have their head examined NO! Try Milanos or Sergio's.

I was really looking forward to trying The Owl as I'd read a lot of good things about it. I found it to be very pricey, especially considering the quality of the food.
