They have an unique menu. I ordered the salmon with cauliflower puree and asparagus. It was nothing spectacular. The bar drinks were really good. They have kombucha beer which I haven't seen at bars before. It was a nice change from ciders that I normally have to order. The service was good. They do have a lot of options for... More

I came across The Owl House on Valentine's Day as a last minute alternative. Loved the atmosphere, the food, and the art. Great little place!

Had lunch with two friends here, one is vegetarian and the other vegan. All of us had sandwiches that were great. The service was really good and the portions were good as well. They have a nice beer and wine selection.

I love this little place. I love its aesthetic and the ambiance. I love the events they do. I love that their drinks are named after Twin Peaks characters and if you ask, they have all kinds of off-menu drinks named after other Twin Peaks characters. I love that they cater to veggie and vegan people. I just love this... More

Didn't eat at the restaurant, but really wanted to sit down at the bar and try the kombucha beer on tap. Got take-out two days in a row due to our busy travel schedules and our 2-year-old. Looked like a nice place though. Good quality food. 5 stars for the Hot Beave burger, but only 3 stars for the plain... More

Good beer selection (though they were out of everything they had on their board). It is a converted house so lots of little rooms. The food was good especially if you are a vegetarian, many choices. I am not so I had a very good sausage sandwich.

Ok, I wouldn't actually drive 4 hours to Rochester to eat here, but I would never drive by in I-90 without stopping in if I could arrange it. Truly creative plates, large or small. Their Cauli wings are delicious, as are their salads and other foods. Then there is the beer menu--we had to take one for our friends who... More

We had brunch with a few friends on Sunday afternoon. Each of us ordered something different from the menu and we all enjoyed the dishes. One great recommendation is the large plate of Rosemary French fries.....delicious with homemade catsup. We will Definitely return!

A friend took me to the Owl House for dinner because I am temporarily on a very restrictive diet (think Paleo only more so - anything tasty is pretty much forbidden) and he thought it would be a good place to get food I could eat. I got an absolutely fantastic dinner that totally fit the parameters of the diet.... More

The food is good but the first time we went there we had a reservation, got there and there was no table. What is the point of a reservation? We did not really like the "oh well what can you do" attitude with no apology after we spent all of that time trying to find a parking space. The second... More
