“all around good!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

This bar/restaurant in the small town of Panora, IA is a great place. The atmosphere is relaxing and pleasant. The menu has variety and everything I have ordered was very tasty. It has interesting starters including fried green beans served with blue cheese dressing. The steak salad is fabulous.
Fast and friendly service rounds it all out.

“Good food, good service, nice small town sports bar”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Glad to have the Owl's Nest in town. Food has been consistently good, and the staff is efficient and friendly. If you'll looking for a bar scene to grab a burger and beer while watching the game, this is a decent place to stop.

“Great drop-in spot in Panora”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

In a short time the Owl's Nest has made its mark in Panora. I've had their Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, my wife has had the Oriental Chicken Salad, and we were both very pleased, so we keep ordering these. It is a gathering place for Panora and Lake Panorama locals, with many special events such as concerts and celebrations of Iowa or Iowa State football games. Drop in to the Owl's nest for a bite and a brew, and you won't regret it.
