If you go visit Lowell, hit up his eclectic Massachusetts diner. I recommend you come hungry and try the Hungry Owl Special!

My friend and I arrived at 8:45 on a Sunday morning. We had a choice of tables. Within 30 minutes the place was full. Despite how busy it was the service was extremely attentive and friendly. I appreciated how tasty the home fries were. I know a lot of places they are greasy and bland but not here! My eggs... More

Good food, good prices. It seems like parking could get dicey during rush times but overall a solid breakfast.

The Four Sisters Owl Diner is a fine local DINER. Super for breakfast and lunch with great diner staples. As a regular, I appreciate the family atmosphere and greetings from the staff. I am never disappointed.

I have been here many times over the years. This place has never let me down. Made the conscious decision to head there from Boston on our way home for my birthday breakfast. Thought about brunch in Beantown but knew this would be twice as good for less than half the price. We were not disappointed. Both got the hash... More
