Good food and great atmosphere

The food is well prepared. The service is very good. It is like your favorite corner bar in downtown Chicago. You see many of your friends. Great fireplace and bar set up. Try their bourbon tasting experience. I understand it is awesome.

We spent Valentine's weekend at the Beaumont Inn. We ate dinner at the main dining room and also at the Old Owl Tavern and definitely prefereed the tavern - the food and the atmosphere were both great.

The Old Owl Tavern is a great place to stop while doing the Bourbon Trail, if you like old Inns, or great food! Our party of 5 was promptly seated after a bourbon tasting event with the owner. But, it stays busy so be prepared to possibly wait on weekends. The food ranged from incredible to ok. I chose for... More

I travel over 2 hours to eat here with friends and look forward to the relaxed dining experience. You can't go wrong with the ribs (the meat falls off the bone). It is a popular place for groups on weekends so it may be worthwhile to get there early for lunch. Next time I plan on the corned beef reuben.

My husband and I ate there for our Anniversary recently and we were very pleased with the food and the service. I had a steak that was cooked perfectly and my husband had the ribs that were so tender they were falling off the bone! I would recommend this place!

Love the casual and comfortable atmosphere of this tavern. Fantastic selection of bourbons to sample, the food is really, really good, and being on the grounds of the Beaumont Inn, the location is charming and peaceful. A must if you are in the area.

Had dinner at the Old Owl last night and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere and food were great! every one in our party enjoyed their meal and the service that went along with it. What a neat place with a lot of history.

Everything on the menu is great. If you like Chicken livers they have the best around. Check their hours in the Owls nest, the bar upstairs, it has a great laid back atmosphere for adults. The staff is friendly and the food delicious.

We had high hopes for dining at the tavern since the breakfast at the main inn was delicious. Unfortunately the tavern experience was not good. The food was fair and some items on our order were forgotten and not brought until we were done with the rest of the meal. The service was not good. It took forever to get... More
