I was in a group of about 10 people, we arrived close to closing. The staff was great welcomed us with open arms. Food was very good. I had a dinner salad, very good. Everyone in the group enjoyed their food. Great menu!

The food was great too! I had a Kentucky Hot Brown... seemed like the thing to do & it was very tasty. I wish we had stayed at the Inn, it looked really awesome with the little porches & rockers. But yes back to my title, they had Pappy VanWinkle on hand. I've wanted to try it for quite some... More

Our group of friends ate here in the evening. Casual setting, but quite busy. A lot of choices on the menu. I had the small Caprese salad and a barbecue sandwich and both were very good. Service was good, but it is a bit pricey.

I have had many steaks, but I had the best yet here. It is a small location, but feels cozy. Great for date night.

This wasa great dining experience. The service was great and the food was delicious and lots of it. Huge beer, wine and alcoholic drink menu. If you can, sit outside. Even though it was very hot when I was there the al fresco dining was refreshing with overhead fans and a quiet peaceful dining experience,

Having had mediocre food at the Trustees Table in Pleasant Hill, we looked for something more interesting and tasty. We found it at the Old Owl Tavern. It was a comfortable evening and we ate on the outside porch. The food was southern "pub". Our salads were fresh ( a caprese and a "BLT") and we both had the baby... More

Entree - A- Sides - C Service - A Ok place. Clean establishment and friendly staff. Food was ok. Better than what you would expect to find in a small town I guess.

After a rather disappointing restaurant experience on this trip, I was hesitant to explore. The Old Owl Tavern was a delightful surprise. The onion rings are the best I have had, though I don't indulge often. The dry rub fall off the bone ribs didn't allow one to gnaw on the bones but were delicious, even without the sauce. The...

We opted to eat at the Old Owl Tavern which is a part of the Beaumont Inn. The inn's main restaurant has a dress code and we were not interested in that at all. The food was delicious and there was a nice selection. I opted for the shrimp and grits and I can highly recommend the dish. Desserts was... More

Wife and I were at the Old Owl the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend for lunch. I gave it a very good rating but with mixed feelings. On the plus side it's an interesting looking place with a great selection of bourbons. Service was good and everyone was friendly. To me it kind of has an "upper crust" sort of... More
