We have eaten at Torey's 3-4 times on our visits to Owatonna. The food is excellent as is the service. They go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied. We have also attended group events at Torey's and that experience was also excellent.

Some of my friends from work go at least once a week. The lunch buffet if a great value. The salads, though, are my favorites for lunch. Generally busy for happy hour, and a nice spot for a relaxing dinner, too.

We stopped here on our way through Minnesota. The atmosphere was very cool. The temperature was not too hot not too cold- just what you want out of a bar. Anyway, we ordered the bacon wrapped pork chops, lamb, and pesto pasta. Everything was delicious and I thought that it was very good value for the cash.

I read reviews on Torey's and they all raved about how fantastic the food was. We live approximately 60 miles away, and ventured out specifically to have dinner here solely on the positive reviews of others. We echo all the positive reviews. The food and wait staff were fantastic. We will definitely be back again!

They had an adequate staff and our food came out in an appropriate manor. Very pleasant experience. They are right off the freeway just past Applebee's. Support local business!

Probably the best sit down restaurant in Owatonna when it comes to good quality but due to awful service on two separate occasions our family will no longer be patronizing this establishment. Our waitress was inattentive and when she managed to make her way to our table she reeked of cigarettes and was rude but because of the food quality... More

We were passing through Owatonna and decided to stop for dinner on a Friday evening. It was busy but we could be seated immediately on a high top table in the bar. Torey's is a friendly local hang out with a pretty large menu, something for everyone. We opted for steaks and baked potatoes. The steak was a great cut... More

Was not expecting to find a first class restaurant in Owatonna, possibly worth the drive to come from Minneapolis just for this restaurant. Torey is the father/owner of the restaurant however his daughter is busy serving drinks and the mother is busy entertaining guests by the bar. First class restaurant, run by a really nice family.
