Visited here 3 or 4 times now and each time the foods and service has been very good. Fine choice of meats & fish, but for me its all about the steak. I will be back

The Owl is one of my favorites in Grass Valley, CA. The Billy blue bread is to die for. I just wish they still served bearnaise with the steak. Please please bring it back.

We went there with friends. My wife and I had the filet mignon. Just wonderful. Melts in your mouth. Service was excellent. Could not ask for anything more. Price is a bit high, but the meal and service are worth it.

I have always had great dinners at the Owl. Enjoy the atmosphere and the servers are very nice! It is in the heart of downtown and there is lots of parking available

We did not eat here but others in our group did a few times and they all enjoyed the food. We had several drinks at the cool bar, and our bartender (a super young woman) mixed a few specialties that were all unique and tasty. Everyone we ran into kept recommending The Owl, and we were sure glad we visited.

We arrived on a busy weekend night with no reservation and an apparently fully booked evening. The manager, who seemed to do everything from greetings arrivals, to serving food and clearing dishes, was able to accommodate us in less than 5 minutes and we were seated at a perfectly acceptable table. The food was very good; the service was a... More

My son and his girlfriend came to Grass Valley for the Cornish Christmas night. They asked if we had ever been to the Owl Grill. We told them them we had walked by it many times but never gone in. They wanted to try it so we ventured in. They were very busy and the hostess said it would be... More

My husband and I frequently visit our daughter and son-in-law in Brown's Valley and often eat out in the area. However this was our first visit to The Owl - but it will certainly not be our last! We dined on 13 January, arriving very early for dinner (at 4.40pm) as we met my son-in-law after he had finished work.... More

We live in Grass Valley and have dined many times at a The Owl. It's always been the nicest place for a pretty good steak, however, our dinners last night were excellent. My rib eye was a beautiful cut cooked to perfection. The Caesar salad was very tasty. I wish they had more local wines on their menu. We love... More

Excellent dinner at the Owl Grill and Saloon. Two "must haves". The pan roasted brussel sprouts appetizer (fabulous with cheeses and garlic) and the "Blu Billy bread" Yummy! The Halibut was cooked to perfection. A good wine list. Staff was attentive without being over bearing. The bar from the 1800's is wonderful. Every dish ordered by our group was excellent.... More
