Regular stop

Breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It's all great here. The Back Room is just like it sounds...it's on the back side of the the Nite Owl where I get the Country Ribs and as much fry bread with honey butter as I can handle.

Waitress was excellent, looked after our needs quickly and efficiently. Food was not so great. Liver was very thin and dry. Wife order a chicken steak, got chicken fingers but they were the best of the meals. Like I say, waitress/server was excellent and made the other mistakes doable

I've been to the Nite Owl around a dozen times. They never fail to impress with their breakfast. The food is always great and the service matches it. The price is very reasonable and the atmosphere is that of a hometown diner.

Ate here for breakfast on our way home to Alberta on a Monday morning. A typical diner with good food at a reasonable price and good service. This a local coffee and breakfast hangout. Would eat here again.

Good food at a reasonable price. Fast, pleasant service. Very local clientele with bottomless cup of coffee. Not for the demanding foodie who has specific requirements. Just good value for what you pay.

Nite Owl always seems to have a full parking lot -- and Rotary meets there -- so it should be a great place. Not quite. Not bad. Food is just fine, service a bit slow, priced about right. Nothing to make us want to return any time soon.
