Love the feeling of an old school diner. Very well maintained, clean, and friendly staff. Had an omelett which was outstanding. The only negative I have is the baked beans - tasted old with more juice than beans.

My favorite thing at the Owl is the ham steak and eggs. I order it with a side of sautéed spinach and skip the toast. Dave's home fries are the best!
