“Down and Dirty Great Dive Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Sunny day. Picnic tables on the deck over the water, with duck and boat views. Donna, our server, was attentive and personable. Food very good. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. Basket of french fries, with malt vinegar, are not to be missed. Fresh spiced shrimp were steamed with an onion - creative and delicious!

“What a great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

I have been to the Big Owl a few times and always loved it but this was my first time at a private party (The Dani Hoy CD release party ). The staff was great and you cant ask for a better location for a gathering. Good food and great drinks were part of this event as well.

“Good Outside Bar on the Water”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon. Live band, good bar food and some drinks. Fish Tacos, Smoked fish dip, and fried seafood platter. All were well prepared. Fried platter a little pricey. Service was outstanding and the music was good . Good place to hang out and enjoy a sunny afternoon.
