The food is excellent and the atmosphere is casual and relaxed, The Owl Tavern as it was called many years ago is a long time favorite of the locals. We enjoy dinners there on cold wintery nights as they keep a nice cozy fire burning in the restaurant fireplace.

Went for dinner at 7pm...sat at the bar & ordered a delicious martini from a very nice bartender who had to come from behind the bar to take our order (waitress nowhere to be found for at least 20 min). Ordered the delicious Brussels sprouts appetizer after the waitress first brought to the table behind us! The "manager", I presume,... More

As a resident of Grass Valley its a must that we get to the Owl for dinner at least once a month! Great atmosphere and the service is wonderful, they are all so friendly!! I love their Cajun Chicken Pasta, and the Salmon in the wine sauce is excellent also!!! Oh, if you want a good slice of bread try... More

4 Adults, 2 kids on a Sunday night at around 6 pm. Food was really good, have had better for less $ but then again have had worse for more. Was $30 for filet mignon, $40 for surf-n-turf. Staff was extremely helpful; when not cleaning tables/seating people the bus boy/hostess would help refill bread basket and/or drinks. They had a... More

You gotta try the Billy Blue Bread! I had the Filet and it was perfect. Ask for Gary. Everyone there is very polite and the service is the best.

We were visiting Grass Valley and checked Tripadvisor for restaurants, so glad we found this place. The food was wonderful, we had prime rib and a filet mignon, both excellent. Great service and atmosphere. So glad we found it!

The Owl bar and grill is a great meal and a wonderful experience. Beautiful historic building and the décor is very relaxing. Five steaks were delivered to our table all were done just right as ordered and delicious. Side dishes and salads were very good and all five of us enjoyed our desert. The service was perfect and the staff... More

After several days of camping at a music festival, I wanted something more substantial. Specifically, steak and potatoes. Boy, did I find it here. Did a little research on the internet, and found this highly recommended place. As a single, I was happy sitting at the bar, but there is separate sit down areas also, so you don't have to... More

When you don't know where to go for dinner the Owl is usually our solution. Locals frequent this place and I will always recommend when someone asks "so where do you go for a reliable meal". In the historic downtown Mill St. area. This old building isn't fancy but that's why us locals love Grass Valley. Hamburgers cooked to perfection.... More

We are locals who, for whatever reason, have never gotten around to making a visit to the Owl. We did it finally last weekend and in summary, we were very pleased with the combo of food, wine, service and value. Our family had the filet mignon, the salmon and a burger entrees, and except for well-done burger (we did not... More
