We took our youngest out for a special spring break meal. He's a vegan. We both had heard good things about The Owl House, so we made reservations and headed over there. Even though it was mid-week, they were busy, and we were glad we made reservations. Note: parking is on-street, and the street gets pretty filled with competing businesses/apartments.... More

We decided to try The Owl House and did not have high expectations after checking out a very limited menu online. All 3 of us tried different entrees - fish, pork and chicken - and we all were pleasantly surprised. Not only meat and fish were cooked excellent, but the sides were so unusual and creative - we did not... More

After a diagnosis of celiac disease my wife and I have struggled to find places for her to go out to eat. We heard about the Owl House and read the mixed reviews. We decided to try it and made reservations for Valentines Day lunch. She took the day off from work and we drove in from Leroy. To make... More

First off, I'm not a Vegan or vegetarian...but enjoy seafood. Glad we found the Owl House on Trip Advisor...it was perfect for the two of us. Went on a Saturday night and We didn't have reservations and got lucky that 2 seats were available at the bar...otherwise it would have been an hour and a half wait. Parking is all... More

The food here was okay. Nothing spectacular. I'm vegan and cook a lot of vegan meals at home (along with cooking vegan/vegetarian meals for camps) and I would personally just stay at home and cook my own food then go out to eat at the owl house. It has a nice atmosphere but I think it's more of a place... More

We were delighted by our brunch experience at Owl House. Great "fall scramble" eggs with butternut squash and Brussels sprouts, well brewed coffee, seasonal waffle, lentil burger, I think everyone in our party was satisfied. MacKenzie was an outstanding waiter.
