Hadn't been here in about 3 years, so glad I returned. Friend and I ate lunch at the bar - bartender was friendly and helpful. Food was excellent - many options for vegetarians, vegan, gluten free, etc. Highly recommend

Went for lunch (brunch) with my mother. We both ordered the breakfast platter and I was thoroughly impressed. Although I am not a vegetarian, I was extremely pleased with the meal, as was my mother. Eggs were cooked to perfection, the bacon amazing, my mom couldn't stop raving about the Multi-grain toast. But the show-stopper was the breakfast potatoes... crispy... More

Super good food! Surprisingly filling, even with the meat-less dishes! As a passionate carnivore, I was a bit skeptical of some of the menu items...but I have found myself returning time and time again for the delicious food! A quick trip from any downtown office, coupled with the fast service makes this the perfect office-lunch-hour-getaway.

nestled in an old house in downtown Rochester, the Owl House serves delightfully flavored drinks, and a terrific selection of beers. The food is freshly prepared and wonderfully flavored. Look for local, in-season vegetables, lots of vegan and gluten free choices. great variety of salads, sandwiches and specials.

Have enjoyed everything we're eaten there, sausage sandwich is delicious, french fries are very special everything was cooked to perfection. Second time we went, had a really nice cocktail, good beer selection and a lunch special that was amazing.... More

Inventive menu caters for meat eaters, vegetarians and the gluten intolerant without compromising on any of them. Also serves classic sandwiches but with a fresh twist. Portions are large even the small plates. The cauliflower "wings" - cauliflower florets dusted in corn flour, flash fried and served with classic hot sauce were amazing. Setting is fun, nice patio outside. Incredible... More

What a find this is! Its a quaint little house converted into a restaurant that serves all kinds of local fresh meals from "small plates" to regular entrees. Lots of vegetarian, vegan and low carb options which made me super happy. We started with the small plate options of the tofu nuggets and the "cauli" Siracha wings. Both were wonderful.... More
